How can I address spousal deportation?
I met my husband in Canada, he is a citizen of Mexico and I am a Canadian citizen. He recently got deported to Mexico. Can I sponsor him to Canada?
When a spousal deportation occurs the person is deported from Canada, they are barred from entering Canada, unless they obtain written permission to do so from the Canada Border Services Agency. Your husband will have to make an Application to Re-enter Canada (ARC) alongside a spousal sponsorship application. They will both have to be very carefully prepared.
Given the delicate nature of the situation, it is highly advisable that you instruct an Immigration representative with experience about the specific details of your case as every situation is different in these types of complicated matters.
Your husband can be allowed to re-enter Canada but only if first the sponsorship is approved and then if the ARC is successful. In some cases, ARC’s are not necessary depending on the type of removal from Canada (departure order, deportation etc).
