Status restoration

Through the process of Restoration, the temporary residents who have lost their status or right to work or study in Canada can apply to restore that status. They can apply to restore their status within 90 days of the expiry of their temporary status in Canada.

However, the applicant is only eligible to restore the status that they held prior to the restoration application.

You may apply if:

  • You have not been out of status for more than 90 consecutive days.
  • You remained in Canada longer than the permit authorized for your stay, but not longer than 90 days.
  • You have not failed to comply with the conditions imposed and continue to meet the initial requirements for your stay.

Application process: –

  • If the foreign national leaves Canada, they are no longer eligible for the restoration of their status. They will need to make this application while they are in Canada.
  • All the corresponding fees for application of restoration must be paid i.e. $150 CAD for study permit extension fees and $200 CAD restoration fees.
  • The full details of all the facts and circumstances should be provided in the application.

Process vary from case to case and restoration can take several months.

During the process of restoration, the applicants may stay in Canada but they are not allowed to study or work in Canada until their application has been approved and new study or work permit has been issued.
