Assessment of the second review
In case you got an ineligibility letter and the reasons for the ineligible decision have been addressed, you are allowed to apply for a second review. However, you are allowed to have only one application in the process, it means if you apply for the second review, you cannot reapply to SINP in their regular intake, till you got the result of the review.
Guidelines of seconds review
- You must submit the request for a Second Review Form by email to email@example.com within 45 days of the date that the SINP issued the ineligible letter.
- The Immigration Representative for your application cannot be changed after this 45-day period.
- Your signed form must clearly state your reason for a secondary review.
- You cannot add new supporting documents for the second review until you are asked to do so.
- If the ineligible decision is upheld after the secondary review, the file will be closed.
Answer: If your file is under process, you should immediately report to SINP about the change in circumstances.
Answer: If your NOC is still in demand and your score is above the cutoff, then it is always advised to reapply because the second review can take longer as compared to the processing time of regular application.
