I know your question is important to you and I will be giving it the time and attention it deserves.

Sometimes responses and replies take time, so I ask you to be courteous and patient to allow me the time to type answers to you and also to others. At times I may even have to do some research.

I am sorry to hear of this difficult situation.

Can you please set out the basic facts?

Customer
Hi
Customer
Debra, I need to get some clarification on my visit status in Canada.
img

Debra, Expert

Please explain the facts.

Customer
Well... Just moment I will explain
Customer
As a visitor to Canada, I applied for an open work permit which was refused and received a letter from Immigration saying not fall under any criteria to be eligible for an open work permit.The end of the message shows "Your status in Canada is valid until April 27, 2022.What does it mean exactly?
I had exited the country on March 5th and Returned back on 7th March from the USA.That means I have still 180 days ( I don't get any stamp on my passport at the border ) or I must exit Canada before 27th April.Which is correct?

Debra, Expert

When did you get the letter?

Customer
March 13th

Debra, Expert

Here is the answer to your query. Please do not hesitate to ask any follow up questions related to this response and know that I will respond as soon as I can.


When the letter was sent they didn't know you left and came back.

When you re-entered they didn't know this letter was being sent.

It is likely the case that you must leave by April 27 but you can send in a webform to ask in the hope they say that because you left you are essentially starting over.

You should do this by webform and not by phone so you have something in writing.

Does that make sense?

Customer
Yeah, I did send email for clarification about that. The response is as follow...

Good day Asif Hussain Abdul Habibur,Thank you for contacting Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC).We received your request to withdraw your application. However, we regret to inform you that since a decision has already been made in your file, it is not possible to initiate a withdrawal or a refund.In order for us to withdraw an application, it is important that we receive a written request before a final decision is taken in your file.We invite you to refer to the online message sent to you on March 13, 2022, for more information about the decision.Furthermore, generally, you are allowed to stay in Canada as a visitor for six months. This means that you would have to leave the country:· On or before the expiry date shown on your Visitor Record, orSix months from the date stamped in your passport by an officer when you arrived,
for example, if the stamp shows that you entered Canada on January 5th, 2017, you would have to leave by July 5th, 2017, at the latest.
if the officer wrote a date by hand underneath the stamp, you would have to leave Canada on or before this date.In some cases, an officer could give you a shorter or longer amount of time for the following reasonsYour ability to pay for your expenses and those of your family members coming to Canada with you (financial support),
The amount of time you ask to stay in Canada for, and
The expiry date of your passport or other travel document,
it is important that your stay does not exceed the expiry date of your passport or travel document.If needed, more information is available for you regarding the length of authorized stay in Canada as a visitor.We hope the information provided is helpful in assisting you with your enquiry.We would also like to suggest the following online services that might be helpful to you with any immigration, refugee and/or citizenship future requests:

This is not good enough. They didn't understand the issue.

You have to write again and explain what you told me. You left, came back and then got the letter.

Can you remain for 6 months because you left and re-entered or not.

Customer
Thanks, ***** ***** please tell what exactly as key point... Kindly suggest so I can write email to immigration for further clarification.
Customer
Sorry to bother you, 
I might not write correctly or ask the right question to get clear information from Immigration. It will be good to know from experts like you.Please suggest some key points...
I highly appreciate your help in this regard.

Debra, Expert

You tell what happened. You left on....... and returned on........ This would mean you could stay for six months.

But then on...... .you received a letter dated..........

Does this mean you must leave in April or do yo have six months from the date you re-entered?

Customer
Thank you really appreciated.
Customer
I just did now
Customer
Hers is letter which I wrote....
Customer
Good Day, Jean,Thank you for the detailed explanation of the withdrawal request.
It's my bad luck, I couldn't either get an open permit or able to cancel it. Anyhow, I'm not interested in a refund, only checked if that application can be removed, which you clearly explained was not possible due to procedures. Got the answer clear now.Same time, still one more question I'm unable to understand from your links.The open work permit refusal letter shows ( The immigration letter feedback received on 13th March )
"Your status in Canada is valid until April 27, 2022. What does it mean exactly?I had exited the country on March 5th and returned back on 7th March from the USA.
That means I have still 180 days ( I don't get any stamp on my passport at the border while entering Canada on 7th March )
or I must exit Canada before 27th April as per the letter?So which is correct?
How long I can stay here in Canada? What is my last date exactly to exit?Please help me out to clarify my doubts.Regards
Asif
