Processing Time & Costs

TRP Application Fees

The processing fee to apply for a TRP is $200 CAD at a consular office or any Port of Entry.

TRP Application Processing Times:

The Canadian government encourages you to apply for a Temporary Resident Permit well in advance if you know you require entry to Canada and are inadmissible. You can apply for a TRP at a Canadian Visa Office or at a Port of Entry. Applications at a Port of Entry can be made during travel by land, air or sea. The choice of location may impact the likelihood of your success, as well the processing time. If you choose to submit a Temporary Resident Permit application at a Port of Entry, you can save yourself a great deal of time, as applications can be processed on the spot. Alternatively, the processing time at a consular office can take anywhere from 4 – 6 months.
