Temporary Resident Permit Requirements

Posted in Temporary Resident Permit

If you face any sort of inadmissibility, entering Canada may be difficult if not all together not possible depending on the nature of the inadmissibility. There are many reasons why some one might be considered inadmissible:

  • you are a security risk,
  • you have committed human or international rights violations,
  • you have been convicted of a crime like DWI or DUI, or you have committed an act outside Canada that would be a crime,
  • you have ties to organized crime,
  • you have a serious health problem,
  • you have a serious financial problem,
  • you lied in your application or in an interview,
  • you do not meet the conditions in Canada's immigration law, or
  • one of your family members is not allowed into Canada.

Refused Entry into Canada

If you are determined to be inadmissible, you will need to overcome this inadmissibility by applying for a document called a Temporary Resident Permit. Many people confuse this with the similarly named temporary resident visa, however they are very different documents.

A Temporary Resident Permit is an authorization to enter Canada despite having inadmissibility. For example, if you have been convicted of driving under the influence in the United States, a border official in Canada may determine that you are criminally inadmissible to Canada.

If this is the case, you will need to apply to a Consulate to obtain a Temporary Resident Permit to overcome this inadmissibility. Without it, you will not be able to enter Canada until such time as you either apply to for individual Criminal Rehabilitated or be deemed criminally rehabilitated.

To be eligible for a Temporary Resident Permit, your need to enter or stay in Canada must outweigh the health or safety risks to Canadian society, as determined by an immigration or a border officer. Even if the reason you are inadmissible seems minor to you, you must demonstrate that your visit is justified.

There is no guarantee that you will be issued a Temporary Resident Permit. If you would like to receive a permit, you will have to pay a processing fee, which is not refundable.

A permit is usually issued for the length of your visit to Canada, for example, one week to attend a conference. You must leave Canada by the expiry date of the permit, or get a new permit before your current one expires.

Note, this permit may be cancelled by an officer at any time. The permit is no longer valid once you leave Canada, unless you have specifically been authorized to leave and re-enter.

    Fantastic news, I entered Canada without a hitch. Once the guard at the border saw the package you had prepared for me, he took about ten minutes and handed me my permit. What I relief! I don’t know why I ever tried this without you guys! Thank you!

    Reception was very nice and was sure to answer the questions he could but made sure I was taken care of by a rep at the firm. Shabnam was extremely helpful and I will be calling again when I am ready to proceed.

    Akrami & Associates was extremely professional and the most efficient legal team I have ever had the pleasure of dealing. They responded to my emails quickly, never missed a phone call and explained the process to me in such a way that anyone could understand, even me. Thanks to them, I was able to hire the workers my business needed mush sooner than I had ever expected. You can’t go wrong with them.

    Shabnam, I wanted to personally thank you for all your hard work and dedication to me and my wife. Our new lives together are all thanks to you. Considering the unique circumstances that initially prevented her, I had lost hope. I will make sure that if anyone I know needs immigration help, I will be sending them your way. Again, I can’t thank you enough.
