Default Couple of BOWP questions ...

Hi all!

My residency is processing still & I my 2nd IEC expires in May. I have AOR and am I BC PNP nominee.

Just a quick (I hope) couple of questions:

How have most people applied- online or via mail?

On form IMM 5710, what box do I tick on Q.3?
- a work permit with the same employer
- restoration of status as a worker
- an initial work permit or a work permit with a new employer
- temporary resident permit

I've done all my applications by myself before, but I was thinking of getting help on this one. I would hate to go back to England to wait for my residency to finish processing, my whole life is here now.

Anyway, thanks in advance

It should be a work permit with the same employer

Read this link for BOWP as there are specific instructions regarding what to submit and eligibility and applying for the open work permit.

And you are not applying for a Temporary Resident Permit. That's for if there are inadmissibility issues. A restoration is for if your WP has already expired so you don't need one of those either. You need to read the link FL posted as it has to be within 4 months of expiry of current status so right now that's at least one eligibility criteria you don't meet. And as the link indicates, you need to check BOWP eligibility as a PN.

I always say get help if you're not sure or don't feel confident but that is not a view of the forum generally. It's my own personal opinion.

Thanks guys!

I'm going to look into it more once I'm off work, figure out if I need help as I couldn't see a actual document checklist.

Get help if you're not sure.
Your questions on this thread indicate you aren't sure.
You have to be really careful what type of WP you apply for if you are a PN (i.e. if it needs to be a restricted WP). FL has alerted you to that.
