Getting your visa faster - "Flagpoling."


A way to obtain your work permit at the Canadian-U.S. border 

Candidates and their family members with both valid Canadian and U.S. visas would be able to “flagpole”.This is recommended for those living in a country where work permit processing time is very long.


What's the flagpole?


The flagpole is the term given to when a person already in Canada leaves and returns without crossing into the USA to activate a new permanent resident status or be granted a renewed study or work permit.


Why do flagpole?


It is known as a time-saving alternative to applying to Immigration Refugees and Citizenship Canada, where processing times can run into weeks and months. By flagpoling, candidates present themselves at the Canadian Port of Entry, and are processed often in less than 30 minutes.


Who can flagpole?


"Flagpoling is used by study and work permit holders looking to renew their permits. They take all their documentation to a U.S. border point and can be processed in minutes at the border.


It is also used by temporary residents of Canada who wish to validate permanent resident status. It is a quick and cheap alternative to waiting months for an appointment at an IRCC office.


The following can flagpole:

Residents of visa-exempt countries with an LMIA-exempt job.

Residents of visa-exempt countries in possession of a positive LMIA.

Residents of the U.S., St. Pierre & Miquelon and Greenland.

Residents of visa-required countries already in possession of a study or work permit (flagpoling for the purposes of renewal).

* Seasonal agricultural workers are not eligible to flagpole"
