IRCC announces they will accept incomplete study permit, PGWP applications

May 26, 2020

Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada has announced that it will not refuse study permit applications that are missing documents due to disruptions caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. Three key areas of the applications that some have been unable to complete include biometrics, medical examinations, and submitting original travel documents. The temporary measure also extends to Post-Graduation Work Permit (PGWP) applicants who are unable to get a letter of completion or a final transcript from their Designated Learning Institution (DLI). Additionally, if a student’s status changes from full time to part-time due to changes in the programming at their DLI for the Winter and Summer 2020 semesters, they will still be eligible to apply for a PGWP.
