Overcoming Medical Inadmissibility: A Triumph in Immigration

Posted by admin - Bellissimo Law Group PC

A client diagnosed with polycystic kidney disease since childhood faced refusal of their permanent residence application because the anticipated cost during the period under consideration by Immigration, Refugees & Citizenship Canada (IRCC) was up to $535,000. IRCC was concerned that the client would need renal treatment with dialysis and/or a kidney transplant. IRCC’s concerns in this instance were well-founded as the client had advanced to kidney failure, requiring both short-term dialysis and a transplant. Following months of planning and consultations with the client, medical specialists, and Canadian provincial authorities, a Mitigation Plan was developed, placing the client under the threshold in IRCC’s period under consideration. Following examination of the plan, we are pleased to report that the client was downgraded from an M5 applicant to an M3 applicant, and the medical admissibility assessment was passed. The clients now look forward to a long and prosperous future here in Canada
