LMIA and work permit

Recommended Posts

Beatrice

Hi, can somebody please tell me,  our LMIA expires in April, we have submitted our work permit application the beginning of Jan.  

But with the processing time and if we are asked to send passports we wont be able to arrive in Canada before the expirery date of LMIA.  

We are not sure, must we be in Canada before expirery date or must we have applied for permits before it expires?

thanks

I may be mistaken but if I remember correctly as long as you send in your application before the expiry you'll be fine

@OdijonkOh no!!! I really hope it does not affect the processing that much!! We used Matrix Visa and they did not tell us anything lol.  They did say that it can take 4-12 weeks.  Our application is standard nothing complicated did our medicals before we submitted had our police clearence, job reference letters etc.  And what we understood is that as its a standard application it would not take that long. But nobody can be sure.... Lol.  We are counting the seconds and checking every now and again for any news lol:D.

We will let you know as soon as we get any news 

Thanks
