How Long Does it Take to Get a Temporary Resident Permit

If you were found inadmissible to Canada and previously denied entry to Canada, there is still a way for you to enter Canada if your reasons are justified. If you have not been to Canada before and you wish to do so, even though you have past criminal records, you present health or security risks, the same solution may apply to you.

There are two ways to apply for a Temporary Resident Permit.

1. At a Canadian Consulate located in your home country

2. At a Port of Entry

It is important to note that Canada encourages people to apply within their home country first. If you know you will need to enter Canada, and you have enough time to wait for an approval, then you should do so. However, if you need to enter immediately for justified reasons, it is possible for you to enter at a Port of Entry.

If you wish to apply for a temporary resident permit at a Canadian Consulate, in addition to the time it will take for you to complete the application and gather your documents, the processing itself could take up to a year. This, however, depends upon the number of applications they have to review and the urgency of your case.

If you are going to apply at a Port of Entry, and you are successful, you will be permitted to enter Canada immediately. If this is your preferred choice, you might want to keep in mind the expenses you will accrue in order to get to a Canadian border, only to be denied.

At Akrami & Associates, we can help you with the preparation of your application, how the process works, and what you should do in order to acquire a successful outcome. Call us today and let one of our associates help you.
