I was wondering the chances that I could travel to Canada as a tourist, having been denied entry to America.
I am a sex worker, I live and work in the UK where sex work is a totally legal job. I am taxpayer and work here legally.
3 years ago I tried to enter America and was refused entry and turned around. The reason being that my job at home makes me inadmissible to America - that is inadmissible to visit the US even as a tourist and even with no intention of working there. I had previously travelled to America 7 or so times with no problem. I was not given a ban and I have no criminal record, but America is off the cards and they will not grant me a visa.
I would like to travel to Canada (obviously not right now). Sex work in Canada however, is legal - although again, I just want to travel as a tourist. I have been to Canada before, although this was before this issue with America happened.
What do you think my odds are of being able to travel to Canada? I am sure they will see the refuse entry/deportation, and I intend on being honest about it on my eTA form.
I am in a limbo - the thing I was refused entry to America for, is happening to do a job that is legal in my home country (uk) and legal in Canada.
