Canada - Government Information/Misrepresentation and inadmissibilty


I followed your answers in and I am really convinced. I have question regarding my PR application under CEC and I would really appreciate if you could answer my question:

I Came to Canada on Study permit on August, 2008 and completed my studies in 2010 and worked full-time on PGWP for 20 months. However, I failed to disclose a travel history to Singapore in my study permit and previous TRV application. However, all my visa and permit is going to be expired soon.

Just wondering, If I apply for PR now (after expiry of all visa and permit) and disclose all the true fact and include all the travel history, am I going to be inadmissible to Canada for not disclosing one of my travel history in my old study permit and TRV application. I heard that inadmissibility decision are made with respect to current application only. Is it true?


ANSWER: Hello Aniruddha;

Thank you for your question.

Inadmissibility decisions when made based upon misrepresentation, could result from contradictory information submitted with any application (past as well as current), not only by the same applicant but also by family members. Therefore, it's extremely important that any contradiciton be represented properly, fully and convincingly before the visa officer.

In my opinion, this would require an understanding of the immigration law and procedure, and should be done with professional advice.

Should you need us to provide you the same, please feel free to email us on

Thanks for your reply. I have one more question.

Say, if I am inadmissible now for 2 years. Can I again apply for PR after 2 years. and is the previous inadmissibility (which will be expired after 2 years) going to affect the new PR application?

Also , after 2 year am I deemed rehabilitated automatically or I have to apply for rehabilitation after 2 years?

Thanks again,

ANSWER: Hello Aniruddha

Thank you for your follow-up question.
Previous inadmissibility and the reasons thereof are relevant to any future application.
There's no rehabilitation after 2 years.

Hope this is helpful.

Thank you and Kind Regards

Thanks for your reply.

I was reading CIC operating manual ELF 2 OP 18 and in point 9.7 it says "An application for a visa abroad, or for entry into Canada at a port of entry may be denied based on a misrepresentation made in connection with the current application or examination only, unless the person was previously the subject of a refusal for misrepresentation and the resulting two-year inadmissibility period has not elapsed"

Can you plese clrify this point.

The answers however, should not be considered as a legal advice, as that involves detailed information of various aspects of the immigrants' profile.

We advise clients on these as well as find innovative immigration solutions for others.
