Canadian Temporary Resident Permit Basics
Have you attempted to cross the border either through land, sea or plane and were Denied Entry to Canada due to an inadmissibility you had on record? There are many reasons you can be considered inadmissible to Canada such as having a criminal offense on record, medical inadmissibility, or if you have previously contravened an immigration regulation in the past.
When it comes to criminal inadmissibility, regardless of whether or not you were actually convicted, simply being charged with an offense whether it is dismissed or not is enough to consider yourself inadmissible to Canada. Therefore, the immigration officer at the border has the right to deny you entry due to your previous criminality. Depending on how long it occurred you may either require a Temporary Resident Permit or Criminal Rehabilitation, if you have served all your sentences and five years have past since the completion of your sentence then you may be eligible to apply for the permanent documents which is Criminal Rehabilitation.
Having a medical inadmissibility the immigration officer at the border will assess whether or not your current medical need might be a burden on the Canadian general populous. What this means that your medical condition may have a strain on Canada’s medical and health care system, if this is the case then you also have to apply for Temporary Resident Permit.
Further, contravening an immigration regulation also makes you inadmissible to Canada, this means if you overstayed your welcome stay in Canada you would have to apply for Temporary Resident Permit.
Temporary Resident Permit (TRP) is document that is either issued at the Port of Entry or Consulate that allows you entry into Canada for temporary basis. When you apply at the Port of Entry you get same day decision on your matter and maximum time a TRP is granted for is 3 years and minimum 1 day. When you submit your application at consulate the processing time is approximately 8-12 months. The TRP only allows you temporary entry into Canada and resolving your matter only for temporary basis while Criminal Rehabilitation if eligible to apply overcomes your situation permanently as long as you do no re-offend.
