Why and How to Enter Canada As a Permanent Resident

To protect Canadians from the deadly effects of COVID-19, now-former prime minister Stephen Harper implemented travel restrictions which limit travel to Canada to official government-approved events. While not all of the restrictions have been lifted, many have been taken off the table entirely. Prior to implementing these measures, visitors to Canada were not subject to the country’s immigration policies. This, according to many experts, poses a security risk. Unless you are an official Canadian citizen or a visitor permitted into Canada under the immigration policies of the Government of Canada, you cannot enter the country without obtaining a visa.

As of this writing, it is illegal for a Canadian citizen or a resident of Canada to travel to any destination in the State of Idaho without first obtaining leave or parole. The quarantine period applies only to people travelling to Canada through either Port Of Entry or Van Pond, and only for six months at a time. To enter Canada through any other port of entry or Van Pond will require a visa. In addition, not all travelers to Canada are granted leave to remain if they enter the country while quarantine. Hence, for those entering Canada via Van Pond, a visa is required, whereas those travelling to or from another Canadian province need only a passport.

While travelling to Canada does require a visa, there are still some exemptions. In accordance with the Security Act of Canada and the Regulations Act, Canada and the United States of America, airlines and travellers are not prohibited from travelling between the United States and Canada with persons having restricted air capacities. Travelling with family members is also permitted provided that the travellers do not take flights to Canada using airports in the States of the United States or from the United States to Canada. Additionally, children of citizens of the United States who are six years of age or less are entitled to free admission to schools in Canada.

In addition to these exemptions, travel to Canada does not require you to have your passport in order to enter Canada. Furthermore, in accordance with the Registration of Visitors to Canada, foreigners are required to register with the Canadian Immigration and citizenship office before travelling to Canada. You must do so before embarking on your trip regardless of whether you are travelling within the North American continent or to another Canadian province. Your registration is evidence that you meet the Immigration and Citizenship Requirements. It also serves as proof that you are not a prohibited or controlled person in the United States.

As well as fulfilling the Immigration and citizenship requirements, Canadian officials also undertake an important role in ensuring that travellers are not subjected to any health risks. For example, you will find Canadian officials performing random background checks as part of their responsibilities. This is undertaken in order to prevent against the entry of individuals who could potentially present a danger to Canadian officials or another individual outside the travelling party. random background checks can also be conducted if you intend to transit between states. For example, if you are travelling from the United States into the Canada, you may need to submit to a drug test in order to ensure your protection while crossing the border.

If you intend to enter Canada through provincial borders, you will need to fulfil the aforementioned requirements. You will also be subject to quarantines in case you become infected with disease or otherwise come into contact with someone who has an infectious disease while travelling abroad. For example, you will be subject to quarantine in case you enter Canadian waters, or if you become ill in Canada and seek treatment at a hospital in Canada.

As well as demonstrating that you meet the points of entry requirements, you will also be allowed to remain in Canada if you have travelled to Canada by following certain procedures related to an international flight. In most cases, this includes having your passport updated with a current photo, as well as presenting a certificate of citizenship from the country of travel to Canada. The Immigration and refugee Protection Act also allows you to remain in Canada as a temporary resident if you are a member of the temporary residents class.

Finally, for persons having to cross the border to reach Canada, a security assessment will be carried out. For persons in the temporary residents category and the family class, this assessment will be done within a week of arriving in Canada. For persons in the national interest category, it may take up to fourteen days. The security assessment assesses the potential risks to you and your family, while taking into account factors such as your age, health and the fact that you are a permanent resident of Canada. A final security review is conducted to verify your identity and to remove any doubt about your identity before granting you an entry into Canada.
