Do you get passport request as well? Can any one confirm what is the turn around time after work permit approval to get passport stamped
I applied for an extension of WP only, once approved they send WP renewed document via mail by canadapost at your address.
As per trend, WP extension process for inland ONLINE applicants takes normally 90-95 days on average from date of application until approved online, and delivery of document by mail depends upon location/city in canada, normally they state 6 weeks at max. mine came in 4 days in toronto.
WP extension and passport stamping are two different applications, passport sticker comes in TRV application. As your TRV expires at same time of your WP, so if you intend to travel in due course, then on basis of renewed WP document, you are not allowed to travel, so you need to apply for TRV in separate via online, once WP is approved and received. TRV is processed sooner than WP time...I have no plan to travel outside canada in due course, so will not apply for TRV, as will pursue PR application now as CEC inland, once i complete my 1st yr job exp in canada!

Thanks for your response. I have a doubt here. When I first applied for my WP - outside Canada,When it got approved -I got a request for passport submission as it by default has TRV included in it.
As per CIC website ( https://www.canada.ca/en/immigration-refugees-citizenship/services/work-canada/permit/temporary/extend.html)
Starting May 1, 2017, eligible citizens of select visa-required countries will receive an eTA when they renew their work permit. The eTA is electronically linked to the passport you used to renew your permit and is valid for five years or until your passport expires. You can only use the eTA when you fly to, or transit through, Canada by air. You will receive a letter from us with information about your eTA number and expiration date.

That means on extension of work permit eTA will be given. Can you confirm if you have received an eTA also?

Temporary Resident Visas (TRVs), commonly called Entry Visas, are to be obtained by foreign nationals who require visas to enter Canada, while Electronic Travel Authorization (eTA) allows foreign nationals from visa-exempted countries to enter Canada without a visa.

During wp extension, u need to apply in separate for trv after ur wp extension approved, that trv will be valid for same validity of extended wp....but if u r from visa exempted country, which u seems not, then u need eTA.

First time, as outland u get trv (sticket on pp stamped by embassy) first then wp on landing (by cbsa at airport). As inland during extension, u get wp document first, then on its basis u apply in separate for trv, on approval u send pp to ottawa office and receive it back by mail with new sticker on ur pp.

Thank you for clarification. So I see a long way after WP approval. Any one got approval or profile update?

Wp approvals taking 90-95 days on average for inland online applications. Then trv taking 10 days on average until u receive pp request, and there r separate charges for trv application as well like 100 bucks per applicant i think

Hi All

Apologies in advance as I have really no knowledge on Work Permits and extension just asking for someone. My cousin work permit (PGWP) is expiring on Feb 04, 2019. She was unable to apply due to some unseen circumstances can she apply now ? is there any dead line to file the work permit extension application.

She was initially issued only 1.5 WP because of her passport expiry.

Appreciate your help in advance

Thanks
