    Spouse Open Work Permit

    I applied together with my spouse and my sp was approved and his owp was refused. We showed strong ties to home with family and work and 40,000CAD in funds. It is advised that you apply for the sowp after your spouse is already enrolled and you can show proof of her already attending. The...

    So is there a different application process when switching status or just the regular TRV application?

    I'm a US Citizen and withdrawing from my studies this week. I understand my study permit is valid for another 90 days. Since I'm visa excempt do I still need to apply for a TRV to stay here after the 90 days? If so, should I apply right away or wait to the end of the 90 days? Is there a...

    Study Permit + Admission Deferral + Re-applying

    I got my study permit for Sept. 2019, but had deferred to January 2020. I arrived in Canada on Dec. 31st with no problems. My study permit was only issued until the date given on my IRCC letter so may need to extend it in country next year. I don't think you'll have a problem. Many others will...

    URGENT FOR ALL ASIAN COUNTRIES (IRRC/CoronaVirus)

    The email address is legit. This is the email I got my Student Acknowledgement Letter and Approval from: DoNotReply-DELHI-Immigration@international.gc.ca. I did the whole process on my own through IRCC and I'm now in Canada, so I know the emails I got were not fakes. But the grammar, sentence...

    Updating IRCC about deferment?

    If your family already has their visas, I don't think you would need to update them. Many people defer and don't update. But you will have to have a good reason why you are deferring when at the port of entry, since you already have your visa in September. I received mine 6 days before classes...

    Can I go to Canada using the student visa if I haven't enrolled?

    My letter from IRCC says don't enter Canada before 3 weeks. If you arrive in October, they could send you back home and tell you to come back in December. I wouldn't risk it.

    Updating IRCC about deferment?

    Hello everyone. I received my SP for Sept. 2019 intake, but decided to defer intake until Jan. 2020. I'm currently on the waitlist for enrollment in my classes and my school is confident that I'll get the official registration letter by December. I wouldn't normally update IRCC, but my...

    Study Permit + Admission Deferral + Re-applying

    What did you decide to do? Did you contact CIC to let them know? On my SP it says don't enter the country before 3 weeks. I've seen a few say that they weren't allowed entry and had to return home only to come back later. Also when was your medical done? Since it's only valid for a year, you...
