Temporary Resident

A document issued by citizenship and immigration Canada that allows individuals who are technically excluded from Canada to visit the country is called a temporary resident permit – TRP. A TRP is only given to an idividual if their need to come to Canada outweighs the risk of that individual being in the country.


Apply For A TRP

  • The TRP process application relies on which country you belong to. Residents of some counties need an ETA, and some need a visa to enter Canada.
  • Applying from a visa required and an ETA required country.
  • Candidates should apply for a visitor visa, including some supporting credentials showing why they are admissible.
  • IRCC might issue a TRP if your ETA was refused, but its approval might rely on the nature of the application.
  • Your own country’s visa office might have its application forms for applying for a TRP.

Understanding Inadmissibility Before TRP Application

An individual could be deemed prohibited for a few reasons:


  • Criminal activities like money laundering, smuggling, or driving under the influence of a substance.
  • Security causes like terrorism, violence, war crimes, etc.
  • Medical issues such as endangering public health and security
  • Lack of financial support
  • Data misrepresentation
  • Non-compliance with any provision of IRPA
  • Being related to a family member who is inadmissible.

  2. Apply for a new TRP before the expiry of the current TRP if they want to maintain their temporary resident status
