Study and work grant candidates who have acquired their acceptance letters no longer need to go to the border to activate their licenses.
IRCC is currently opening up its web facility to take demands from individuals who have their Letter of Introductions (LOIs).
This new measure additionally reaches out to individuals who got their LOI under the International Experience Canada program.
Candidates who have obtained LOI have been trapped due to the travel restrictions due to the Coronavirus. They are authorized to work and study, but they cannot obtain permission unless they go to the port of entry, as it isn’t viewed as essential travel, candidates are unable to go to a port of entry. This would mean that even if an individual has already been approved, they cannot legally start working or studying.
This new process will permit these individuals to demand their study or work permits on the web and have their papers sent to them. IRCC says this alternative will be accessible until March 31, 2021.
The new steps for obtaining a work or study permit for Canada:
The process for LOI holders will vary for candidates who are coming to study and for candidates who are coming for work.
The authorities will review the study permit application to verify that the name of the Designated Learning Institution within the request matches the letter of acceptance. They will likewise verify whether the DLI the candidate has been enrolled in is still accepting international students and that their program has not been dropped. Finally, they should be happy that they still have funding for tuition, living expenses, and money to return.
The Immigration Department will check that the name of the employer on the Labor Market Impact Assessment (LMIA) or LMIA exemption proposal matches the name provided in the application submitted by the candidate. They will likewise search for any worries or case notes entered after the approval was issued.
Authorities may contact the employer to verify the work offer. They may likewise contact the candidate for a meeting if they think it is important.
Authorities will check open-source information to verify the employer. If the permit is refused due to any reason, it should be followed up with a procedural process.
If work or study permit has been denied, authorities should send a note indicating why they reached a negative decision based on the application. They should also advise the candidate to leave Canada when their status expires or suggest further steps if the immigrant is out of status.
Candidates whose permits have been approved will receive their documents by mail and will eventually be able to work or study in Canada.
