Celebrities like the Fugees denied entry to Canada: The importance of applying to overcome inadmissibility

Publish Date: 02/11/2023

Canada has strict entry laws for any foreign national looking to come to Canada. Each individual must pass admissibility requirements before they are allowed to enter the country.prior criminal record can result in a Canadian Immigration Officer refusing their entry, or application, on the basis of criminal inadmissibility.

Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) and Canadian Border Services Agency (CBSA) place massive importance on securing the country's borders from those who may pose a risk. Because of this, they can deny entry to a foreign national who they believe is likely to commit a crime during their visit to Canada. IRCC and CBSA does not discriminate based on fame or wealth. Criminal inadmissibility laws apply to everyone, including famous artists, musicians, and actors. Many celebrities face this issue since a charge like a D.U.I. (driving under the influence) is enough to be barred entry.

The Fugees had to cancel their 25th anniversary tour of The Score due to Pras Michel's federal charges of conspiracy and falsifying records. Rapper G-Eazy also had to cancel his show in Alberta because he was denied entry to the country due to his criminal record. The rapper was arrested in Sweden for cocaine possession when he also attacked security guards at a nightclub.
