A Temporary Resident Permit may be the solution for you if you are unable to enter Canada via a Temporary Resident Visa. If you find yourself considered inadmissible to Canada by the IRCC due to a criminal background, security or medical issues, misrepresenting yourself or a family member, we help with finding the ‘exceptional circumstances’ to make requests, appeals, file for Judicial Review, and present your details clearly and thoroughly to help change your status.
Canadian Temporary Resident Permits to either enter or remain in Canada may be issued by IRCC Officers using their discretion in regards to assessing the credibility of a claim for a Temporary Resident Permit of an inadmissible foreign national. They may decide that your needs are compelling enough and that allowing you entry in into Canada is “justified in the circumstances”. For instance, if your need to enter or remain in Canada is compelling due to your family ties in Canada, and the need for your presence in Canada outweighs any risk to Canadians or Canadian society, then you may be successful. Canada’s social, humanitarian, economic commitments and duty to preserve the health and security of its citizens and permanent residents, are considered. Officers also weigh the risk of you requiring social assistance in Canada, your history, previous removals from Canada, your likelihood of receiving record suspension or experiencing rehabilitation, when assessing ‘exceptional circumstances’ and issuing permits.
Temporary Resident Permits last from one day to up to three years. If your permit period is longer than 6 months, you are allowed to apply for a work and/or study permit. In order to apply for permanent resident status, you will need to stay in Canada for a continuous period which may require multiple applications for TRPs, and proving you qualify for the permit by submitting documents and application fee. Immigration officers may cancel your permit at any time, at their discretion. If you leave Canada, the permit becomes invalid.
Applying for a Temporary Resident Permits in Canada, as with any application, allows no room for error or falsehood, and 123Visa does not assist unworthy candidates who are dishonest in their approach. You may not meet the IRPA requirements and be refused an Electronic Travel Authorization or Permanent or Temporary Resident visas from outside Canada, be denied at a port of entry or be refused to have your application processed, inside Canada, so make sure your application process is impeccable!
Remember, if Immigration Refugee Citizen Canada will not issue you a Temporary Resident Visa, a Super Visa, Study Permit, or Work Permit you may still qualify for Temporary Resident Permits in Canada, and if you do we will do our best to bring about your success.
