Things You Need to Apply for TRP at Canadian Border
If you know that you are inadmissible, or you have been denied entry into Canada due to inadmissibility before, you may wish to apply for a Temporary Resident Permit that will override your inadmissibility and allow you to temporarily enter Canada.
There are two ways for you to apply for a Temporary Resident Permit. You can either make an application to a Canadian Consulate in your country or region, or you can apply directly at a Canadian border.
If you have an urgent need to enter Canada, applying at a Canadian border would be your best option. This is usually not recommended if you have time to apply to a Canadian Consulate, as it presents the risk of being denied after having to waste time and money to get to a Canadian border.
When you arrive at a Canadian border with the intention of applying for a Temporary Resident Permit, there are some things you will need to bring with you. This includes,
- A complete application with supporting documentation, this can be documents that show,
o Why you were denied
o Why you think you should be allowed to enter Canada
- Materials that will show why you need to enter Canada, this can be,
o Letters from employers proving that you need to attend an important conference
o Any documentation that will show you are seeing a family member that is ill
- A valid passport or authorized identification (ex. Enhanced Driver’s License)
- Money for your stay
It is important to know that your responsibility is to prove that you do not really present a risk to Canada that is great enough to deny you temporary access into Canada. Any documentation you can provide that will establish this purpose will be beneficial to you.
