Nationalities exempt from the resumption of removal orders from Canada

Important: Administrative deferral of removals (ADR) for Iranians.

CBSA suspended most deportations in March 2020. Of course, the decision reflected the coronavirus pandemic and travel restrictions. However, Canada is now facing a large group of people who are hanging here with removal orders in their hands. Consequently, CBSA recently announced they would resume enforcing the removals. Regardless, some nationalities remain exempt from the resumption of removal orders from Canada.

What is a removal order?

Sometimes people who are inside Canada receive a removal order. However, removal orders affect foreign nationals and permanent residents only. Regardless, a removal order means you must leave Canada. If the removal order is a Deportation order, you may never come back unless you receive an Authorization to Return to Canada. Moreover, Exclusion orders result in a 12 to 60-month ban. Consider reading the following articles for more information:

Removal orders could affect any foreign national or permanent resident. In other words, no nationality is exempt from removal orders. However, a temporary measure could put the removal of some nationalities on hold.

  • Certain regions in Somalia (Middle Shabelle, Afgoye, and Mogadishu),
  • The Gaza Strip,

  • South Sudan,
  • Libya,
  • Yemen,
  • Burundi,
