Work Permit / Study Permit / Visitor Record Replacement Service
Replace a valid Temporary Status Document
You can apply to replace a valid work permit, study permit, or visitor record if it has been lost, destroyed, or stolen.
You must have your temporary residence document with you – work permit, study permit, or visitor record – in order to enter Canada AS WELL AS your valid eTA or visa. Without an original status document such as a work permit or study permit, you will not be allowed to board the plane to Canada or to enter Canada through the port of entry upon arrival.
If you are replacing a work permit or study permit, you will have to submit a copy of your letter of employment or letter of acceptance.
Our office will help you replace your valid temporary status document such as a study permit, work permit, or visitor record. We will:
- Confirm your eligibility to apply for a replacement temporary status document
- Advise what documents are required for your application
- Complete the application form for you
- Write a cover letter explaining why your application should be approved
- Act as your representative with the government of Canada
Only a Regulated Canadian Immigration Consultant, such as our partners, or a Canadian Immigration Lawyer or member of the Chambres de Notaires du Quebec can accept a fee to be your representative with IRCC
Unfortunately urgent processing is unavailable for replacement of a valid temporary status document. However, processing time us typically around 1 month including processing of the application and mailing time to receive the document.
