I applied for the Study Permit extension 40 days before the expiry date of the current Study Permit, and the Study Permit Extension application was on paper. Now 40 days are nearly passed (means the existing Study Permit will be not valid anymore) and no acknowledgement came from IRCC (the information on the website says that they only processing now the application arrived on November 2017). The current case processing time for paper application is about 4 more months. If i don’t receive my Study Permit extension, means there would be an interruption in my study process.
I am planning to apply again on line, and if i apply online i get Study Permit extension within a month. IRCC states that we should not duplicate our application as it will cause the delay in the processing. I am confused, can somebody help me ? can we do applications parallely ? what are the risks of applying online when i already sent a paper application
Can some one comment on this
