1. Departure Order (form number IMM 5238)
i. If you received a Departure Order and:
- Left Canada within the required 30 days and
- Verified your departure with a Canadian immigration officer at the port of exit.
You do not need an ARC. You may return to Canada subject to normal examination at the port of entry.
ii. If you left the country without verifying your departure, or more than 30 days after the Departure Order was issued, the Departure Order automatically becomes a Deportation Order and you need to apply for an ARC before you try to enter Canada again.
