My PNP application got approved, yesterday. Now, I am all prepared to apply for my express entry application. My husband is accompanying spouse in my application. Last night, he got charged for driving under the influence of alcohol in GTA. What could be the impact of this on our application?
Generally, If you’ve been convicted of driving while impaired, you may be inadmissible to Canada for serious criminality. This is because DUI now has a maximum jail time of 10 years and this constitutes a serious crime (https://www.justice.gc.ca/eng/cj-jp/sidl-rlcfa/) . This means that you generally can’t enter Canada.
In your case, I would suggest that you inform IRCC of your husband’s charges because it may impact your application. Doing it over webform would be the best option. Most likely, the DUI will have a negative impact on your application.
