On July 30, 2021, the Government of Canada updated instructions for the permanent residence (PR) pathways for Hong Kong residents and added clarifications for the education requirements and e-post instructions. Now, all applications under the PR pathways for Hong Kong residents have to be submitted by e-post, except those who have a disability. According to the new guidance, applicants of Stream A must have graduated from a designated learning institution (DLI) in Canada in the 3 years before they apply and have a post-secondary degree or diploma or a graduate or post-graduate credential for a program that is at least 1 year in length. Applicants under Stream B also have to meet these criteria, whereas they must have graduated from a DLI in the 5 years before application.
