Medical inadmissibility refers to a condition where a person's entry or status as a permanent resident is denied in Canada.
As per the Immigration and refugee protection act, medical inadmissibility adds extra pressure on Canada's healthcare or social service system.
If Canada's healthcare and social service demand is exceeded, its cost is more than the Canadian government's threshold.
Certain medical conditions can result in inadmissibility, such as HIV/AIDS, cancer, heart disease, mental health disorders etc.
The Canadian government has a designated panel of physicians to examine medical examinations for immigration.
These physicians assess the medical conditions of the candidate and give their opinions on the medical condition's impact and cost.
Individuals who are medically inadmissible and apply for temporary visas based on humanitarian and compassionate considerations may
qualify for a waiver or exemption for their medical inadmissibility.
If you no longer require medical services, then you have medical rehabilitation option that demonstrates the condition no longer poses an excessive demand.
Medical inadmissibility can affect immigration application results, but the impact depends on each applicant's assessment criteria for medical conditions.
Medical inadmissibility determinations are based on an applicant's medical condition and supporting documentation.
If you are facing medical inadmissibility concerns, contact a licensed immigration lawyer or consultant who is an expert in medical inadmissibility cases.
