    Travel To Canada

    Your study permit becomes invalid 90 days after you complete your course and get your final grades. The TRV will remain valid and I believe you can enter with that.

    Yes, the same thing happened to me. They gave me a work permit for 1.5 years and even though I was eligible for 3 years. They added a note to my work permit that I can apply for an extension after my passport renewal.

    Pgwp and TRV

    I spoke to a friend of mine who did this sometime back. If I remember correctly, he said that we have to include a return envelope (inside the main envelope) for them to send the passport back to your address. Did you not receive instructions about this from IRCC?

    Pgwp and TRV

    TRV application processing time has gone down to 42 days as of today. Passport stamping inside Canada takes one or two weeks. I have read about cases in the forum where an applicant has applied for TRV in one country and gotten their passport stamped in a different country. But I am not sure if...

    Post Graduate Work Permit Processing Time (PGWP)

    Did you apply for the PGWP from inside Canada? Do you have a valid TRV till the time you want to return? There is no known way to expedite a PGWP application. And you cannot call IRCC from outside Canada.

    I don't think that has an effect on the processing time. A friend who submitted on September 14th without biometrics got approved yesterday.

    Post Graduate Work Permit Processing Time (PGWP)

    I meant that the final decision is usually made 1 to 3 days after Eligibility review starts and the biometrics correspondence letter is received.

    Family reunion: Do we need written authorization or not?

    Extended family member reunification does not apply to temporary residents. Only immediate family members of temporary residents are eligible for it. And if I am not wrong, to be considered common-law partners (immediate family member), you both need to have lived together for at least one year...

    Family reunion: Do we need written authorization or not?

    If you want to use your brother, a Canadian citizen, as the reason for you to visit Canada, you will have to apply for Authorization to travel. The easier way for you is to say that you are visiting your wife for at least a month. Even though she is a temporary resident in Canada living on a...
