    Entry for what? Vacation? Permanently? When we moved to Canada, for work, we had to undergo medical health tests but I'm not sure exactly what for. We were allowed in but neither of us has a mental condition.

    It's up to the Border Officer. You can be denied entry because he had a bad day and thinks you are ugly. Endless legit reasons to deny. If he doesn't allow entry there is nothing you can do but turn around or be arrested. Case by case basis. Kodak Black was allowed in because the 5th degree harassment is a randomly chosen target.

    Not unless it's severe enough to cause a problem.

    If you've been taking lithium for a while and it's working, you won't even be asked. If you're still wearing a straight jacket and are whacked out on thorazine, you might have to answer a couple of questions before they let you in.

    They check your criminal history, not your mental health history.

    I doubt it.

    No, it's irrelevant. However, you can be denied entry if you have a history of violence or a criminal record.
