Nationals of Myanmar are exempt from the 12-month bar if their Immigration and Refugee Board or previous pre-removal risk assessment (PRRA) decision was made between May 8, 2020, and May 7, 2021. In general, individuals whose refugee claim or previous application for a PRRA were rejected, abandoned, or withdrawn are not eligible to apply for a PRRA for at least 12 months after the final decision. This is also applicable for applicants from Myanmar who receive a final negative decision after May 7, 2021. Since the situation in Myanmar worsens, their deportation could put them in a risk situation. For this reason, an additional assessment is introduced to the applicants of this country. Before the deportation from Canada, the Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) will get in touch with eligible individuals from Myanmar to notify them to apply for a PRRA.
