Ineligible SINP Application

Effective May 16, 2020, the timeline to submit Requests for a Second Review will be shortened from 45 days to 30 days after the SINP has issued an ineligibility letter.

Please note that Secondary Reviews will take longer than one year due to the high volume of inventory.

Secondary Review

If your application was deemed ineligible by the SINP, and you wish to have your application reviewed due to a perceived error made in the application process, or in the assessment of the application based on the criteria at the time of application, you may ask for a secondary review. You can only have one application in process, which means that you cannot submit a new application to the SINP while a secondary review is being assessed. In order to have a new application accepted by the SINP, you would need to cancel your request for a secondary review. Due to a high volume of second reviews, a secondary review will take longer than a year to process.

To request a secondary review, you must submit the following Request for a Second Review Form by email to immigration.programintegrity@gov.sk.ca within 30 days of the date that the SINP issued the ineligible letter.

  • The Immigration Representative for your application cannot be changed after this 30-day period.

Your signed form must clearly state your reason for a secondary review.

In requesting a secondary review, please note that:

  • Secondary reviews are based on the information contained in the original application package; as a result, you may not submit new supporting documents.
    • If you want to submit any new documents or information, you'll have to reapply to the SINP with a new application package (see information on reapplying below).
    • If we receive the signed letter within the 30-day period and the letter contains the required information, we'll review the application and you'll be notified of the secondary review decision by email.
    • If the ineligible decision is upheld after the secondary review, the file will be closed.
      • Immigration Representatives can only represent active files (i.e. files that are going through our processes or that have been nominated and are being processed by IRCC).

Reapplying Following an Ineligible Decision

If your application was deemed ineligible and you'd like to reapply, please note that:

  • You may reapply to the SINP only after the reasons for the ineligible decision have been addressed, unless misrepresentation was found to have taken place and an applicant is banned for using the program for up to two years.
  • Applicants who've been suspended by either IRCC or the SINP can't reapply to the SINP until the suspension has been lifted.
  • The resubmitted application will be subject to the same processing times and procedures as all incoming applications.

Applicants who were refused by the SINP may still apply to IRCC under a federal immigration class, if they feel they meet the criteria.
