Did you know that if you have been denied entry to Canada, or you think you may be denied entry to Canada, there are options available to you?
Being denied entry to Canada usually happens because the traveler has a criminal record of some kind. Even the most minor of offenses can result in a denial of entry, and Canada takes certain offenses more seriously than the United States does.
So, what can you do if you are or fear you will be denied entry to Canada?
In many cases, you could be eligible to apply for a temporary resident permit in order to enter Canada. This means that once you are approved for one, you should be able to enter Canada for a temporary length of time. However, the temporary resident permit will have an expiry date and once it expires you must leave and apply for another if you want to return.
While this document can be applied for at the border if you are a United States citizen, that does not necessarily mean it is an easy process. If you would like to apply for one, speak with a licensed immigration lawyer beforehand.
