Things You Need To Apply For A TRP At Canadian Border

A TRP is essentially a special permission given to a person who would otherwise be inadmissible to enter Canada. Although, in most cases it is recommended that people should apply for TRP in advance and get permission before hand. There are cases where people do not have the time to apply in advance as the trip may be sudden or due to an emergency. In this case you may be able to apply for a TRP at the border itself.

Your need to enter Canada should be compelling enough to overcome the risk (if any) you may pose to Canadian society.

Officers issuing TRP use extreme caution when issuing these at the border, as the health and safety of Canadians is at stake form their perspective. The officer will consider the following when he asses your case:

  • Jobs, qualification
  • Family ties
  • Economic contributions to the Canadian society
  • Reason for visit

If you are criminally inadmissible the officer may consider the following:

  • Seriousness of the offence
  • Consequences of the offence
  • Were there any victims
  • Were any drugs or alcohol was involved
  • How long ago was it
  • How has your behaviour been since then

Other things the officer will consider:

  • Is it your first time visit
  • Were you aware of the inadmissibility
  • How urgent is your situation
  • How minor or major is the reason for inadmissibility
  • What are the risks involved in allowing you to enter
