Requirement to report
When a designated foreign national is released from detention, they must report regularly to immigration authorities. If their claim for refugee protection is accepted, they must report to immigration authorities within 30 days of the Immigration and Refugee Board’s decision. After that, they must report at least once a year. They must do this until they get permanent resident status.
A designated foreign national must also report changes, such as:
- any change of address (within 10 working days of the change)
- any change of employment status (within 20 working days of the change).
If a designated foreign national does not meet these, and any other conditions of their release from detention, one more year will be added to the waiting period before they can apply for permanent or temporary resident status.
