Travel while waiting for PGWP with valid TRV


Jun 5, 2018
Hi everyone,

I have just finished my master's degree and I am applying for my PGWP. Seems like the processing times are long and I plan on travelling after applying (Sep 2020) and returning in (Feb 2021).

I am aware the study permit expires 90 days after completing the degree so that means (Nov 2020) but my TRV is valid until Aug 2021

As I checked on CIC:


I can return as a visitor after the 90 days if my application is not approved yet or as a worker if approved.

Is this correct?

Thank you in advance!
