3 reasons where medical inadmissibility can be applied
- Hazardous to public health
The application might be refused if the applicant’s health condition poses to be a danger to Canadian public health. The decision will be based on immigration medical examination. Things that will be considered in the result,
- Lab test reports done by a third party medical professional and/or other reports requested by government medical officers.
- Certain infectious diseases like active tuberculosis that the applicant might have or is in close contact with a patient of such kind.
- How the applicant’s disease is going to affect other Canadian people.
- Hazardous to public safety
The application might be refused if the concerned applicant’s health is found to be dangerous to Canadian public safety. Immigration medical test results will determine this factor and that may include,
- Sudden physical and mental incapacity.
- Behavioral violence or unpredictability.
- Excessive demand clause on social and health services
The application might face refusal by the government if the applicant’s health condition falls under the ‘excessive demand’ clause for social and health services. The factors that can cause ‘excessive demand’ are,
- If the services required to treat the applicant’s medical condition is capable of negatively impacting the wait time of social and health services in Canada, and
- If the approved expense exceeds the excessive demand threshold while the applicant is under treatment.
