Hi
Need a genuine advice. My study permit is going to expire in july. My employer has offered me the LMIA and I got my file number. But he didn’t receive any call yet.
So, my lawyer suggested me to change my status to visitor.
Need a help, if my status changed to visitor and in between that period LMIA approves, should I go to border to collect my work permit?
If yes, then what are the questions that are being asked?
Will be a great help
Thanks

If you change your status to visitor then you would have to wait out the time until a decision is made on your visitor application. Only then you can proceed with your work permit application at the border.
