Canadian Immigration Status Restoration – Study Permit, Work Permit, TRV
Many foreign nationals enter Canada to work, study, or visit. In such circumstances, they are granted temporary visas by the Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) for a specific duration. If you came to Canada and now wish to extend your stay, you will need to make an application for ‘Restoration of Status.’ If your restoration of status gets refused, you can discuss your options with skilled Immigration Lawyers to ensure favorable outcomes.
Once the Temporary Resident Visa expires, the temporary resident has to exit Canada. If you wish to continue your stay in Canada, you will need to apply for Canada Immigration Status within 90 days from the last date of the Temporary Resident Visa.
Is Implied Status and Restoration of Status the same thing?
No. If you are in Canada and the approved Visa has not expired, you may apply for a new permit before it expires. In such case, you are said to have implied status.
If the last date of the Temporary Resident Visa has gone and you still wish to remain in Canada, you will need to apply for a restoration of status.
