When you apply at a Canadian Consulate and your application is complete with all the necessary documentation, the process may take up to 4 months. Once the process is complete, you will have a definitive answer, and with our help, you will obtain an approval of your TRP application so that you may travel with assurance that you will not be denied entry at the border. However, if you need to travel soon, you may attempt to apply with the proper application and documentation directly at a Canadian port of entry. Please keep in mind that when filing a TRP at the border, the officer has complete discretion to approve or deny your application and you need to be prepared that you may be turned around at the border and asked to return to the US immediately.
