Are you applying for a Temporary Resident Permit (TRP) to enter Canada? Understanding the process of a temporary resident permit can make your journey smoother. In this article, let’s embark on this informative journey of how you can apply for a TRP to enter Canada.

What is a Temporary Resident Permit?

Before moving forward in the blog, knowing what a TRP is and when you might need one is important. A temporary resident permit or TRP is a document issued by the Canadian government that allows anyone otherwise inadmissible to enter the country for a limited period. People can be inadmissible to Canada for different reasons, such as criminal and medical admissibility. Now, let’s shed some light on the steps to apply for a temporary resident permit:

Determine Your Eligibility

Before starting the application process, it is important to understand whether you are eligible for a temporary resident permit. If you have a criminal record or have been previously denied entry to Canada, you will need a TRP to gain permission to enter the country. You can also get the help of an immigration lawyer or do thorough research that will help you clarify your eligibility.

Collect Required Documents

Once you have determined that you are eligible for a temporary resident permit, the next step is to collect all important documents for your application. This means including a complete application form, a valid passport, relevant police certificates, a detailed explanation of your inadmissibility, and any additional document that strengthens your case. Ensure you carefully review the requirements outlined by Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) to ensure your application is complete.

Submit Application

Now, it comes to the submission of the TRP application. You can apply online through the IRCC website or submit the application by mail or at a Canadian visa office. Before applying, you must ensure that you have provided accurate information to avoid complications.

Wait for Processing

Processing time for a TRP application may vary depending on various factors, such as the complexity of your case and the current processing time at the immigration office handling your application. Usually, the processing time for a temporary resident permit is approximately 3-24 months. However, it is important to check the most recent processing time on the official website of Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) or consult a professional immigration lawyer.

If your Application Get Approved

When your application has been processed, you will receive a decision from IRCC regarding the outcome of your TRP application. If your application gets approved, you will be granted permission to enter Canada for the period outlined in your permit.

If your Application Gets Rejected

When your application gets rejected, you will receive the reasons for the refusal, and you can also explore other options or get legal advice to address any concerns.
