To clarify things, my study permit expired early in March. However, I did apply to extend my study permit before the expiry date, so I am legally allowed to be in Canada by implied status. About a week ago, I received an email saying my application for the study permit extension was approved. The problem is, I have to leave the country today and the new study permit is still being delivered by mail to my Canadian address. So my questions are:
What should I expect coming to the airport, leaving the country, with an expired study permit? (Note that technically I did not overstay and at no point was I required to leave the country).
How can I go back to Canada if the required documents are in my Canadian address and I will be overseas with an expired Canadian study permit? Should I have someone inside the country mail it to me?
