Drop in to speak with our immigration specialists who can help answer your immigration-related questions.
Due to a high volume of inquiries at this time, drop-in virtual advising is conducted as a group advising session. To help you get the information that you need as quickly as possible, we suggest that you check out the following resources before attending a drop-in session:
- Do you have questions about how to obtain the documents you need for a study permit extension or post-graduation work permit application? Check York International's Frequently Asked Questions page.
- Are you unsure of how to complete a study permit extension application or post-graduation work permit application? Check York International's Immigration resources page for step-by-step webinar slides and resources. Note that the Immigration Advising team also hosts monthly webinars where we will walk through the webinar slides in detail and have time for student q&a at the end. Check this calendar for the next available date
Please note: If you are fully vaccinated or will be fully vaccinated before traveling and have questions about how that will impact your travel, quarantine arrangements and/or move-in arrangements, please first carefully review the Quarantine information page for fully vaccinated travellers. If your question is not answered there, please attend a Quarantine Q&A webinar. Please check the York International Events calendar regularly for the next available date.
