Obtaining a TRP When Denied Entry to Canada
It can be very stressful and disrupting to be denied entry to Canada if you try and enter the country but are refused. This happens to many people for a number of different reasons, including having a criminal record or having a medical problem.
But did you know that the right paperwork can help get you into Canada even if you would ordinarily be denied entry?
You could apply for a Temporary Resident Permit, or a TRP to overcome your criminal inadmissibility to Canada.
Applying for a Temporary Resident Permit for Canada
Canadian immigration regulations are strict, and anyone who has a criminal record, medical problem or other issue can be denied entry for security reasons. However, one way to overcome this inadmissibility is to apply for a Temporary Resident Permit, or a TRP.
A Temporary Resident Permit can allow you to enter Canada even if you were inadmissible previously. They can be obtained quickly if you are a United States citizen as you can apply at the border, but this does not mean they are easy to obtain – you could still be denied one and turned away, or you could even be detained. You could also apply at the Canadian consulate or embassy, but this can take longer.
Applying for a Temporary Resident Permit is not an easy process, as the criteria for being denied entry to Canada is quite serious, and to overcome it you will need good reason. In many cases you will have to demonstrate that you need to go to Canada urgently, while also providing a significant amount of information for the Canadian authorities.
We have helped many people enter Canada who were otherwise inadmissible, and we can help you, too. Don’t wait until the last minute to see if you are inadmissible to the United States or not – determine if you need help getting into Canada in advance.
