Stay of Removal Orders

The Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) or the Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) can issue three types of Removal Orders depending on the situation of an individual, which includes Departure Orders, Exclusion Orders and Deportation Orders.

If you have been issued a Departure Order, you must leave Canada within 30 days after the order takes effect. You must also confirm your departure with the Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) Officer at your port of exit. If you decide not to leave Canada within 30 days or do not confirm your departure with the CBSA, your Departure Order will automatically become a Deportation Order. If your Departure Order has become Deportation Order, you will have to obtain an Authorization to Return to Canada (ARC) if you decide to come to Canada in future.

If you have been issued an Exclusion Order, you cannot return to Canada for one year unless you apply for an Authorization to Return to Canada (ARC). If you have been issued an Exclusion Order for misrepresentation, you cannot return to Canada for five years.

You have a right to appeal your removal order to the Immigration Appeal Division (IAD) of the Immigration and Refugee Board of Canada (IRB) if you are a foreign national who holds a permanent resident visa or a permanent resident or a protected person. You also have a right to apply to the Federal Court of Canada for a judicial review of any Immigration Officer, CBSA officer or IRB decision.

Removal Order matters are very time sensitive and complex in nature due to which they must be dealt with on urgent basis. If you have been served with a Removal Order, please immediately contact your own Canadian Immigration Lawyer Bikramjit Singh to protect your legal rights.
