Canada Accepting Incomplete Applications for a Study Permit and PGWP Applications

Canada Accepting Incomplete Applications for a Study Permit and PGWP Applications

Some international students may not be able to submit all of the documents required for their study permit or post-diploma work permit application, so Canada will keep their files open until they can.

The coronavirus pandemic has forced many application centers to close or limit their operations. As a result, some study permit applicants are unable to complete three essential components of their application:

  • give biometrics;
  • have medical examinations; and
  • submit their original travel documents

In light of the circumstances, Immigration Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) says it will not refuse study permit applications that lack documents due to interruptions in coronavirus services.

Instead, they will keep the request open and continue to request additional supporting documentation or necessary actions until they receive the documents or receive proof that an action has been taken.

The temporary measure also applies to applicants for a post-diploma work permit (PGWP) who are unable to obtain a letter of completion or a final transcript from their Designated Learning Institution (DLI).

If international students request the PGWP before the expiration of their study permit but are unable to submit the full application due to an IDD closure, they will be able to start work on-time full until a decision is made.

However, they must submit a letter of explanation, stating that they are unable to submit the documents due to the closure of their school. Once their documents are available, they can submit them using the IRCC web form, which facilitates communication between the Department of Immigration Canada and immigration applicants.

IRCC also allows applicants to restore their status without the completion letter or final transcript. Applicants who restore their status are not allowed to work while the application is being processed.

As a result of health and social distancing restrictions, Canadian post-secondary institutions may have to close or cancel courses. International students may, therefore, have to suspend their studies or study part-time.

If a student’s status changes from full-time to part-time due to changes in the programming of his DLI for the winter and summer semesters of 2020, he will still be eligible to apply for a PGWP.

PGWP is important because it allows international students to gain work experience in Canada. This work experience helps them become eligible for more immigration streams under the Express Entry system and the Provincial Nominee Program (PNP).

Canada recently announced a major reform to provide more flexibility to the PGWP for international students wishing to begin their Canadian immigration journey this fall.
