Foreign Nationals Allowed to Return to Canada

Foreign nationals allowed to return to Canada

IRCC have come up with a number of measures to ensure that work permit holders can return to Canada for their work amid the Coronavirus crisis. They have also offered extension to temporary residents to ensure they have sufficient of time to secure extension of their temporary resident status. Apart from that. IRCC will not be closing and rejecting any application due to lack of documents..

It has been decided to allow Work Permit holders to come to Canada for work. This is applicable even to those who were approved for Work Permit after the Canadian Government imposed a travel ban to contain the spread of Coronavirus.

As per an earlier version of ban, it seemed like a number of Work Permit holders will not be allowed to enter Canada if they were approved for it after the 18th March 2020.

The Work Permit holders are now allowed to fly to Canada, including those outside the U.S. They must not have any Coronavirus symptoms. Also, travelers have the symptoms, may still enter Canada by land, but they must self isolate as it is now mandatory for all travelers to self-isolate for 14 days after they enter Canada from abroad. However, the truck drivers who regularly cross the Canada-U.S. border are exempted from this rule to ensure the availability of goods on the country.

Some temporary modifications have also been implemented to the Labour Market Impact Assessment (LMIA) process for food processor and agriculture employers. The 2-week recruitment period is going to be waived for the next 6 months. Also, the maximum allowable employment duration for workers in the Temporary Foreign Worker Program low-wage stream will be increased from 1 to 2 years.

Immigration Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) have also decided not to close or decline any application which is in progress for a lack of documentation. Similarly, no applicants who are unable to complete certain steps in the process such as completing a medical exam or giving biometrics will be declined.

Extension of temporary resident status

Temporary residents in Canada can also apply for extension of their status online and can  remain in the country until IRCC takes a decision on their new application.

In case, their initial temporary residence status expires while waiting for a decision on their new application, they can stay in Canada but with the “implied status.”

Important to note that travelling to a port of entry to apply to a border services officer directly isn’t considered “essential travel,” and service will be denied to such applicants.
