Appealing A Negative Decision On Your Residency Obligation

Generally, the Immigration and Refugee Protection Act (IRPA) wants permanent residents to be physically present in Canadian region for a minimum 730 days out of every 5 consecutive years. If a permanent resident is outside Canada and a visa officer (present outside Canadian territory) with Citizenship and Immigration Canada (CIC) finds that he/she has not met these residency rules, the person may lose his/her permanent resident status in Canada. The Pr holder can appeal the CIC decision in front of the Immigration Appeal Division (IAD) 7 the Refugee Board of Canada. However, the applicant should appeal no later than a period of 60 days after receiving the status letter from CIC authority.

How to start a residency obligation appeal In Canada?

As seen generally, the Immigration and Refugee Protection Act (IRPA) requires permanent residents to be physically present in Canada for a minimum of 730 days out of every 5 years. If you’re a permanent resident living outside Canada and a visa officer finds that you just go wrong to meet your residency rules, then you might lose your PR status in Canada. You’ll be able to appeal for the refusal to the Immigration Appeal Division (IAD) so as to elucidate them why you should keep your permanent resident status. This can be defined as a residency obligation appeal in Canada (subsection 63(4) of the IRPA).

Who Can Appeal For A Refusal

Individuals can make a residency obligation appeal if a Canadian overseas visa office found that you simply didn’t meet all of your residency obligations being a permanent Canadian resident.

Who Cannot Appeal For The Refusal

There aren’t any of the restrictions or exceptions to make a residency obligation appeal. How ever, if you have received a removal order inside Canada because you probably didn’t meet your residency obligation, you may have to make a removal order appeal in the department.

How You Can Start A Refusal Appeal

You’ve got 60 days after the refusal to appeal for the refusal to the IAD.
For filing a residency obligation appeal, you have to submit:

A completed notice of Appeal form for every individual in your family who suffered by the refusal.

Dual (2) copies of the orders from the overseas visa office

The appellant can be outside Canadian region. If the appellant was in Canada at any time over the past 12 months, CIC has to provide a document for travel in order that the person can move back to Canada. In the other cases, the person may apply to the IAD for a travel proof. If the IAD decides that the appellant must be at the hearing face to face, it should issue an order. The CIC will then issue a travel proof document to permit a visit to Canada for the hearing. Otherwise, the hearing could also be held on telephone.

In any way, a member (whos is the authority) will hear the appeal in line with the IRB tribunal process. The appeal process involves 2 parties; “The appellant and Minister’s counsel who is representing CIC. This method is usually public, so that media or members of the general public can attend or report on the proceedings and decisions.

In case of any troubles applying for refusal hire a reputed immigration agency like First Light Immigration Consultancy for applying your refusal cases.
