Funke said the man's wife sent her an email containing the heartbreaking story.

She said:

"They probably found out after they had given him the visa. They can still deny you even at the airport in Canada. It’s very important to make sure to always make sure to fill out applications properly."

But speaking to Legit.ng Legit.ng, Seyi Obasi, a relocation expert at Japa Systems said he hasn't encountered the scenario in the past.

Seyi said the visa applicant was supposed to be asked all the most vital questions relating to previous visa refusal and not when he first applied and not when he arrived in Canada.

Her words:

"He would have been asked that question in his application and likely would not have been approved. Turkey is NOT one of the countries that Canada shares immigration information - to my knowledge. I have never heard of this kind of scenario before, and I have asked a few colleagues in immigration - none of us has."

@baba.afeez1 asked:

"When they get to know he lied, then why did they grant him the visa and deny him at the point of entry?"

@jaysmum_ said:

"He needs to upload and affidavit stating it was an honest oversight. it has to be notarized. The wife can help him process this."

@deingreat commented:

"The visa office didn't do their due diligence before issuing the visa! They should have recalled the visa before he travelled."

"The way the Canadians will look at it is, if he has lied about this, what else has he lied about in his application?"
