Guys please I some questions. I am a student and I have a valid study permit and a valid Canadian visa up until 2022. I applied for PR under FSW (inland applicant) in March and still awaiting cic’s decision. Currently, my eligibility is passed (I think by an agent), criminality is in progress, security isn’t started and medical was passed before it expired about two weeks ago.
I need to travel down for my wedding this December to return in January. I know on the cic’s website it states international students are exempted from the travel restrictions to Canada as long as their documents (study permit and TRV) are valid and their school has a covid 19 readiness plan approved by the province (which my school has). If this is the case, it ideally means I should be able to travel and return without any hitches. My questions are as follows:

1. Please does anyone here know someone who has been in a similar situation and was able to return to Canada without any hitches? I’m concerned about this because sometimes cic puts up confusing/vague information on their website.

2. What will be my fate if my application is approved while I’m away?

3. Would I need to give cic a new police/medical report upon arrival?

4. I plan on adding my spouse to my application. Would my CRS score be recalculated if I add him?

5. And at what point after our wedding would it be advisable to add him?

I’m really tired of cic holding down my life plans. I’m getting really frustrated, lonely and depressed.

Thanks foe your anticipated response

1. Travel restrictions and COVID is an evolving situation. So keep an eye on the lates IRCC advisory.

2. You can inform IRCC and you will be given instructions to submit your passport in your country of residence. Alternatively, you can travel back to Canada. IRCC has initiated a new online portal for inland applicants, and you can activate your COPR online if you are in Canada. https://www.canada.ca/en/immigration-refugees-citizenship/services/immigrate-canada/pr-confirmation-portal.html

3. No

4. No, see https://bit.ly/2JwYLIW

5. As soon as your family composition changes, you have to inform IRCC.
After your inform IRCC, they will send you a lite of documents, which usually will include:

IRCC will send you some forms and ask for the following documents:


1. An IMM8 Application
2. Schedule A form for spouse
3. Additional Family Information form for primary applicant and spouse.
4. Fee receipt for spouse - Processing fee ($550) and right of permanent residence fee ($490).
5. Birth Certificate of spouse, translation, and affidavit of translation.
6. Copy of Spouse's Passport
7. Copy of marriage certificate and marriage registration
8. Wedding Card and Photographs
9. Police clearance certificate for the primary applicant and spouse
10. Spouse's upfront medical
11. Letter of Explanation (If required)

Congrats on the upcoming wedding. Keeping in touch with IRCC through their website or their Twitter handle @ https://twitter.com/CitImmCanada for the latest advisory. You can also ask IRCC questions directly on Twitter too. Your application is locked in on the day you submit it, so many things do not apply thereafter in your case like police checks, medicals, CRS. However do inform IRCC of the change in marital status and also contact IRCC for next steps if your application is approved in the meantime. All the best.

Hi, folks in the forum,

We had booked our biometrics appointments last week for today. The good news is that we were the first to give Biometrics in VFS Argentina since they resumed operations today.
The minute we got back home my CIC account was updated, now it says:

- Biometrics: December 1, 2020, Completed.
