We had the privilege of representing a Skipper who required a Temporary Resident Permit (TRP) in order to enter Canadian waters off Vancouver.
The applicant was on his boat during his journey from Hawaii to Vancouver, Canada and could not receive faxes or emails. It would take him 14 days to reach Vancouver. On top of that, he had limited access to the phone and Internet while he was at sea, and he had absolutely no access to a printer before he docked in Vancouver, which means he even would not have a proper application package to present to Canadian Border Service Agency (CBSA).
We therefore had to contact the CBSA, Marine Security Unit, directly and sent them the client’s TRP package directly for their review and consideration. In most cases, applicants have their TRP application packages in hand for presentation to the CBSA. We emailed CBSA the TRP package and the officer in charge of the port told us he received it and would make a final decision after intrviewing the Skipper when he arrived.
Well, he did arrive and the interview went well. Our Skipper was issued his TRP and was allowed to sail into Canada. Here is now a happy sailor!
Would like to thank you for all of your assistance in obtaining a Temporary Residence Permit for my allowance into Canada. Everything came together very easy and much faster than trying to do it on my own. The whole process was handled extremely professional and in a short time period.
