More about Temporary Residence Permit Canada - Requirements

Who Needs a Temporary Resident Permit

All who are undesirable to Canada but who have a legal requirement to visit the country need a TRP. TRPs can cover inadmissibility for medical or criminal reasons. In the case that you're not eligible for the prosecution in Canada and have served your probation less than five years earlier, you will get a temporary resident visa if you need to return to Canada. When an individual is deemed unacceptable to Canada, their relatives who travel with them may also be deemed unacceptable. Those family members must apply for and obtain their own separate

TRPs before they can be permitted in Canada by a border officer. In order to stay in the country, an individual obtaining a TRP and in Canada has to abide by certain criteria. Both Canadian

rules must be upheld and implemented. A individual must also acquire the necessary permits in addition to the TRP to work or to study in Canada during a temporary residence. A temporary resident cannot leave and re-enter Canada without proper authorization. When a TRP expires, its holder must leave Canada.

About the document

What's a temporary resident permit? A Temporary Resident Permit, also known as the TRP, is document authorized by Citizenship and Immigration Canada that requires individuals who are legally inadmissible to Canada to enter the country. A TRP is granted to an individual only if the need to come to Canada outweighs the risk that the individual is in the country. For example, a person might be given a TRP for a visit to Canada if the trip is connected to work and the involvement of the person in Canada is useful to the country or its people.
