Inform them about the denial of your US visa in your application. It will not have any negative consequences for your PR application. If you do not, and they find out, you will be barred from applying for PR for two years owing to misrepresentation. A person who was denied a work permit visa to Canada sought for and received a PR visa in less than two years. This man had not disclosed his visa denial on his application.
There are several ways by which your US visa denial can be discovered. If it is known that you have been refused a visa, then it will affect your PR application. For example, if you were going to travel to Canada and did not disclose this fact on your application, then you could be prevented from entering the country.
Your US visa denial may also be revealed when you appear before an immigration officer at the border. If you give false information on your entry form, this would be considered fraud and would have serious consequences for your visa application. For example, if you lied about having been refused a visa and entered Canada, this would be seen as fraudulent behavior and you would be sent back home.
If you are convicted of an offense relating to your use or possession of false documents, or if you make a false statement during the course of a visa interview, this would be considered dishonesty toward Canada and would also have serious consequences for your visa application.
Reasons for Rejection of a Canadian Visa: Failure to provide sufficient and correct supporting documentation Failure to demonstrate enough financial means to fund your trip to and stay in Canada Failure to fulfill international security requirements, such as when an applicant has a criminal history, or is considered dangerous by the Canadian government.
If you believe that your Canadian visa was wrongly denied, you can appeal against the decision. You have 180 days from the date you were notified of the decision.
An experienced immigration lawyer can help you analyze the reasons behind your visa denial and identify ways to improve your application so it stands a better chance of being approved upon re-submission.
However, even if your visa is denied repeatedly, there are some cases where it can be difficult to remove yourself from the visa list. For example, if you are detained at the border or arrested in Canada, a representative will be able to release you on bail while your case works its way through the system. If your deportation order is final, there is no further action you can take except to apply for a permanent residence permit.
In some cases, the Canadian government may be willing to discuss alternative solutions such as submitting a new application under the same name but using a different email address or submitting a new application under a different name.
There is no visa application appeals procedure; if your application for a Canadian visiting visa is refused, your sole option is to reapply. Except for a reference in your decision letter saying otherwise, this procedure can begin at any moment. There is no maximum period between visits for which you can apply.
It's best to apply as soon as possible after being notified of the refusal of your first application. If you waited more than 12 months, you should consider applying outside of the Online Consular System so that we have time to find someone else who can process your application instead of us. However, there is no guarantee that another officer will agree to review your file.
In some cases, such as if you provided evidence of ability to pay or made an offer of employment, the refusal may be because your case was not eligible for consideration under the rules then in effect. In this case, you would receive a Refused Application Confirmation Page upon submitting your request. This page would include information about what changes need to be made to your application before it can be considered again.
If you believe that you were refused a visa on invalid grounds, you may be able to appeal through the Express Entry system.
Yes, you can lose your status as a permanent resident (PR). If you have not spent at least 730 days in Canada in the past five years, you may lose your PR status. You must give up (renounce) your PR status. It is no longer permitted to Canada. The only way to regain your status is to apply for it again.
There are several reasons why someone might lose their status. For example:
If you are convicted of an offense that would render you inadmissible to Canada, you will lose your status automatically. You will also lose it if you are sentenced to imprisonment for a period of three months or more. Finally, if you are deported or removed from Canada, you will lose your status.
You can read about what happens to people who lose their status here: https://wwwrulings.ic.gc.ca/r-dg/e-dmj/pp-pg/index.html
The important thing is that you do not lose your status unless you are actually sent back to your country of origin. For example, if you are arrested by Canadian police and sent back home, this does not mean that you lost your status. You must still wait 30 days before applying for a new PR card.
People sometimes assume that if they are detained by immigration officers then they have lost their status. This is not true.
