On April 19, 2022, the Government of Canada announced that the current Ministerial Instructions for foreign nationals applying for a temporary resident visa, study permit or work permit from outside Canada have been extended. Foreign nationals can submit their applications electronically until March 31, 2023. This update is aligned with the Ministerial Instructions (MIs) that are in effect from April 1, 2022 to March 31, 2023. Individuals who are unable to submit an application using electronic means because of a disability are exempted from the requirement to submit their application online.
