Law says you have 180 days to apply for pgwp, he is past that now so I don't think he can apply.What does the law say?
What the aplicant should do now?
reapply with an explanation letter and corrected date documents or call cic to reopen the file?
The visa officer gave him 30 days to update his status.
Anyone familiar with such situation?
He should call ircc and explain the issue and see if they agree to reopen the case.
It is important what the letter actually says, because what you are saying now is different from your first post.
Also its a very strange error by the school & him not to check the dates, is the school pgwp eligible for sure?
