1. Understanding ARC and TRP

Authorization to Return to Canada (ARC)

  • ARC is a document that allows individuals who have been deported, removed, or are otherwise inadmissible to return to Canada legally.
  • It is typically issued for a specific reason and period, often as part of a rehabilitation process.
  • ARC applications can be complex, requiring strong supporting documentation and evidence of rehabilitation.

Temporary Resident Permit (TRP)

  • TRP is a document that grants temporary entry to individuals who are otherwise inadmissible to Canada for various reasons, such as criminal convictions.
  • It is often used for shorter visits, business travel, or attending special events.
  • TRP applications may be more accessible and suitable for short-term stays.

2. When to Choose ARC

Choose ARC when:

  • You have been deported or removed from Canada and wish to return legally.
  • Your inadmissibility is based on specific past actions or convictions that can be addressed through rehabilitation.
  • You intend to stay in Canada for a longer duration and seek a more permanent solution.

3. When to Choose TRP

Choose TRP when:

  • Your inadmissibility is based on factors that may not be eligible for rehabilitation.
  • You require entry for a shorter duration, such as for a business trip, conference, or event.
  • You need a temporary solution to address inadmissibility without seeking permanent reentry.

4. Key Differences Between ARC and TRP

  • Purpose: ARC is typically used for more permanent solutions, such as returning after deportation. TRP is suitable for temporary stays.
  • Duration: ARC can grant longer-term entry, while TRP is generally for shorter visits.
  • Eligibility: The eligibility criteria for ARC and TRP may differ based on the reasons for inadmissibility.
  • Processing Time: TRP applications often have shorter processing times compared to ARC applications.
