Hello guys, My spouse is waiting for her PR sponsored by me and she is living past her work permit expiry date which is Dec 22. Earlier we applied online for open work permit in november but today we were told that she is not eligible for online application but should have applied paper :( So we have been asked to pay restoration status fee and send work permit application as paper.

Can you guys please tell me if there is any specific application form that I need to include for the restoration of status as worker?
And in IMM5710 line 7, I dont know what to put as current "status" and the "To" date

Your help will be much appreciated.
I also stuck with the "status" option. Debating between, "Foreign National" and "Other" + "resident status expired <date>".
Successful restoration applicants, please share your knowledge ...

In another thread one person suggested me to: "Put the date she lost status and the date of signing the app"

And i think that makes sense

I just wanted to share my experience with any one concerned.
I applied for a study permit restoration on August 6th 2012. My study permit expired on August 1st 2012. I called the call centre a lot. I applied online. I was told today (Jan 25th 2013) that my study permit has been restored and i can start studying again. The wait was really painful and I know it is really hard but just keep praying and hope for the best. Anyone who wants to know the details of my application etc is more than welcome to message me.

Yep, I got the same answer from my lawyer, "Other" + "lost resident status on <date>"

Hi everyone! My Restoration of Status and Work Permit was approved today. I did an online application on October 22, 2019.

Review of Eligibility: January 20, 2020
Approval: January 21, 2019
It took approximately 89 days.
As per processing times for paper application: 110 plus days while its 99 days for online app.

I did my own application but have a immigration consultant check my documents before I submit.
I hope everyone will got an approval soon.

Could you please advise what did you restore your status to? Visitor or something else? And also what documents did you use to apply for your restoration and pgwp.
