IMMIGRATION APPEAL DIVISION (IAD)
Even though a visa officer refuses to issue a visa, for entry to Canada that is not the final decision.
If you married a foreign national, and then apply to sponsor them, to immigrate to Canada, or you sponsored another eligible Family member you can appeal the visa office’s negative decision, to the Immigration Appeal Division.
Other examples, where you can appeal to this division, are the following:
- A permanent resident of Canada, against whom a removal order to leave Canada is issued
- A protected person, who was accepted by the Refugee Protection Division (RPD) as refugee, and eligible therefore to remain in Canada, has a removal order issued against him/her, as alleged by Immigration Canada
- A permanent resident of Canada, loses his/her status, and must leave Canada for not complying with Canadian immigration legislation, as alleged by Citizenship and Immigration Canada (CIC)
