IRCC Stops PGWP Border Applications for International Students

Dear future neighbour,

On Friday, June 21, 2024, IRCC Minister Marc Miller announced that international students can no longer apply for post-graduation work permits (PGWP) at the border. This change, effective immediately, aims to stop “flagpoling,” where temporary residents leave and re-enter Canada for quick immigration services, bypassing regular online application wait times.

The Canadian government is encouraging people to apply for permits within Canada instead of at the border. They are working to speed up processing times globally by updating their systems. This change aims to make the process fairer for everyone and reduce the practice of “flagpoling.”

A study permit expires 90 days after finishing a course, and students can apply online for a PGWP to work full-time while awaiting their permit, which they receive by mail.

Require assistance with securing a visitor visa for Canada, seeking professional aid in submitting a study visa or work permit application, crafting an Expression of Interest, setting up an express entry or provincial nomination profile, preparing your application post receiving an invitation to apply, or simply reviewing your self-prepared application?
