Canada updated instructions for permanent residence pathways for Hong Kong residents

On July 30, 2021, the Government of Canada updated instructions for the permanent residence (PR) pathways for Hong Kong residents and added clarifications for the education requirements and e-post instructions. Now, all applications under the PR pathways for Hong Kong residents have to be submitted by e-post, except those who have a disability. According to the new guidance, applicants of Stream A must have graduated from a designated learning institution (DLI) in Canada in the 3 years before they apply and have a post-secondary degree or diploma or a graduate or post-graduate credential for a program that is at least 1 year in length. Applicants under Stream B also have to meet these criteria, whereas they must have graduated from a DLI in the 5 years before application.
