Hi, If you are currently outside Canada, you should select that you are outside Canada in your application. I believe waiting times are shorter outside Canada for work permits.

You can also apply at the border as long your visitor visa is still valid. Be safe!
it will be mailed to your address in Pakistan. I would call CIC and CBSA and ask both of them about applying at the border just to be on the safe side... they have recently made some exemptions... Please See https://www.canada.ca/en/immigration-refugees-citizenship/news/2020/03/canada-provides-update-on-exemptions-to-travel-restrictions-to-protect-canadians-and-support-the-economy.html?fbclid=IwAR24Hd1sy7WIgcPVqvKLkEJ6TvY-pr349fCQcyjbKzDOkDuTH7xeTJR8iV0Thanks for your response.
If I chose Outside Canada for applying PGWP, the permit will come at my current address and I will be longer in Canada as the PGWP processing time is 17 weeks from Pakistan. And I have also heard that the officer at border will not allow you to enter canada and will ask you to wait for the approval at your home.
Please advise what to do in this scenario.
I did apply online for the extension and also chose "worker" as (my current status) since I had PGWP at the time. Don't stress yourself about the paper route because online applications are also accepted. Moreover, I uploaded the same documents I used for the first time excluding my study permit. I added my current PGWP and a letter of explanation-Needed an extension because previous PGWP was issued till the validity of my old passport. I hope this helps!Hello,
I graduated last year in June 2019 and received my PGWP on October 2019 for 8 months because of my expiring passport. I studied bachelor degree in Canada, which should enable me to have 3 years of PGWP and I am eligible for extension after I renew my passport. I had sent in my renewal application online through CIC website since February 22 2020 along with my new passport. My old PGWP will expire on June 8, 2020, to which I hope that will be enough for them to process my application.
However, today I read on the CIC website that the PGWP renewal must be sent by paper only. Do I have to send in another paper application? Will I be charge twice ( I already paid for the online application)?
Also, when I applied online, I put my current status as worker (because I'm on PGWP), and my spouse is working in NOC 0,A,B in the initial questionnaire. The info I gave was different as to when I applied for PGWP for the first time. As the result, I had to submit different documents ( my application forms, marriage certificate, photo, upfront medical exam, passport, and explanation letter). I didn't submit my transcript or graduation certificate this time because they didn't ask. I did mention my previous PGWP application number in my explanation letter though.
Finally, my husband also got invited to apply for permanent resident under express entry. Should I apply for a bridging work permit instead of sending another paper application for PGWP?
I know it is a lot of questions, but I would be appreciated any helps as I'm really worried now.
