Refused Entry into Canada Due to Prior Convictions

    When traveling to Canada last year, my husband was denied entry due to two prior convictions from 1990. According to the immigration officer, the convictions were still open and not dealt with.

    When we returned home, I contacted both the Canadian and American records departments, and discovered that the convictions had in fact closed in 1991. We were able to get paperwork from both countries proving that the charges were closed.

    We plan to visit Canada again this summer and this time, we will have the paperwork. Is it still possible that my husband would be denied entry again?
