Need help regarding wrong passport information

For all discussion about the IEC application process

by Adam2893 » Sun Oct 29, 2017 6:59 am

When I applied for IEC I entered all the details correctly except I was one day off on both the passport Date Issued and Expiry Date, I didn't realise until after I had an invitation to apply for work visa, I then entered the correct dates and made that my primary passport and I paid and was accepted for work visa and received my POE. I did try to contact the IRCC but got some automated response which wasn't helpful.

Will it be okay? both passports are still listed on my account but the correct one is my primary passport. I just don't want to get to Canada and them tell me that I can't enter because the passport dates are wrong. It was just stupid human error that i corrected as soon as i realised.

Also, do I need to apply for an eTA or does my Work Visa give me one automatically (I'm from Australia), because when I typed in my eTA number into the status page it says it doesn't exist but on my POE it tells me I have one and it tells me I have one in my account when I click on the Work Visa application.

Thanks for any help guys, I am extremely stressed over this, my OCD isn't helping at all.

Hi,

Your POE letter also comes with an ETA number which is now linked to your primary passport, you do not need to do anything further for the ETA, it lasts for around 4-5 years. If the passport with the correct dates is your primary passport I don't imagine you will have any issues when arriving, your POE was issued with your primary passport details so your work permit will be printed and attached to this one also, as long as the two match up you will be fine. Seems all is in order for you to go.
