Immigrant bans and labour bans can be further divided into two based on the time period that a person is getting banned for. 

Permanent Ban

It is the type of ban where a person is banned from a country or employment permanently meaning that he or she can never visit the country again or get a job or apply for a job. This ban can be due to criminal activities, debt or medical reasons. The person will be banned after a biometric database is taken for example fingerprints and scans.
