Do I need to renew TRV?


Feb 12, 2017
I applied for study and coop work permit extensions in May and only got my renewed permits in late August. I am about To graduate this month and will be leaving Canada in October. Do I still need to renew my TRV even if it will no longer be valid since I am graduating? My worry is I don’t know how long the TRV renewal process will take. I mean, it took CIC almost 4 months to process my permit renewal.

A TRV is a document you show to the airlines to get on a plane to Canada. If you require a valid TRV to enter Canada, and you intend to return after October, you will need a TRV - whose validity has nothing whatsoever to do with whether you have a study permit or not, or have graduated or not.
