Nationals of Nicaragua are now exempted from the 12-month bar if their Immigration and Refugee Board or previous pre-removal risk assessment (PRRA) decisions were made between October 30th, 2020 and October 29th, 2021. In general, individuals whose refugee claims were rejected, abandoned, or withdrawn, or those who have previously rejected applications for a PRRA are not eligible to apply for a PRRA for at least 1 year after the final decision. This is also applicable for applicants from Myanmar who receive a final negative decision after October 29, 2021. Before the candidates are deported from Canada, the Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) will get in touch with eligible individuals from Nicaragua to notify them to apply for a PRRA.
