Applying for a Temporary Resident Permit to Overcome Inadmissibility

temporary-resident-permit-to-overcome-inadmissibilityThere are many different reasons why someone could be denied entry to Canada. In most cases, the foreign national is dealing with having a criminal record or a medical problem that causes the border officials to declare them inadmissible.

Understanding Temporary Resident Permit to Overcome Inadmissibility

These measures are meant to keep the Canadian borders secure, but sometimes people who pose no security risk are kept out of Canada.

If you are worried that you are inadmissible to Canada, don’t wait until you travel to the border to find out – make sure you find out beforehand.

What Can You Do If You Are Inadmissible to Canada?

Discussing your situation with a licensed immigration lawyer is the best way to determine in advance if you are inadmissible to Canada or not, because it’s not always easy to determine if you’ll be considered inadmissible, even if you have already been to Canada in the past.

Applying for a Temporary Resident Permit

After discussing your situation with a licensed immigration lawyer, you may determine that your best course of action would be to apply for a temporary resident permit. This permit is a special document that will allow you to enter the country for a temporary period of time, and there are different types of temporary resident permits. If the reason you are applying for a Temporary Resident Permit is because you have a criminal record, this may be an option for you if your offense is less than five years old.

There are two ways to apply for a Temporary Resident Permit. The first is at the US-Canada border if you are a United States citizen. While this can be quicker, there is always a chance that you could be denied the permit. You can also apply at your nearest Canadian consulate or embassy, which takes longer.

If your offense is more than five years old, criminal rehabilitation could be a different option for you. This will permanently overcome your inadmissibility, but it is a longer process.

I am grateful for the legal services that I got from Sanaa and Alicea of Visa Place. I was impressed by their client centered approach. Their professionalism involved their hearts and heads to work on my case. I cannot compare the time they spent on it with the money I paid. All they wanted was a fine final document. I also liked their prompt communication. They are really passionate about what they do.
