Last updated: November 10, 2020
Ottawa, September 25, 2020—IRCC has put in place special measures to help foreign national family members of victims of Ukraine International Airlines Flight PS752 who are stuck in Canada due to global pandemic border closures.
Who these special measures are for
- Temporary residents in Canada whose status has expired or will expire before January 16, 2021
- Members of the family of a victim of Ukraine International Airlines flight PS752
How to qualify
You can apply to extend or restore your status at no cost if
- you’re currently in Canada for reasons related to flight PS752, and
- you either have valid status or you let your status expire
You must submit an application.
If you qualify, these application fees will be waived:
- restoration of temporary resident status ($200)
- extension of authorization to remain in Canada as a temporary resident ($100)
- temporary resident permit (TRP) ($200)
How to apply
You have until January 16, 2021 to have your status extended or restored or to be issued a TRP at no cost.
Extend your stay
If you were legally admitted to Canada between January 10 and June 30, 2020, under the previous measures, you can apply for an extension of your temporary resident status.
You must submit your application before your current status expires. When you apply, you’ll benefit from “implied status” until your application is processed.
Restore your status
If your temporary resident status has expired, you can restore your status if it’s within 90 days of the expiry date.
Apply for an initial or subsequent temporary resident permit
If you were admitted to Canada on a TRP or now require a TRP, you can submit an application to remain in Canada as a TRP holder.
