Connect with an Immigration Advisor

Immigration advising is a regulated profession. Only a regulated advisor can answer your immigration questions. Advisors at the IO only advise on issues related to your temporary residence stay as an international student. Click here for information about how to meet with a Provincial Immigration Advisor. 

To connect with an advisor:

  • Current students can book an appointment with an immigration advisor using Navigate Student.  
  • MI Students and recently admitted students can schedule an appointment by emailing immigrationadvising@mun.ca from your @mun.ca email (please specify in the email that you do not have access to Navigate). 

Preparing for your appointment

  • Prepare questions or topics to discuss prior to advising appointments
  • Aim to arrive on time to scheduled advising appointments

Late arrivals

Our standard appointments are 30 minutes in duration. If students arrive more than 15 minutes past their scheduled appointment time there is no guarantee the advisor will be able to meet with them at that time therefore late arrivals may need to reschedule.

Cancellations

Appointments can be cancelled or rescheduled through the Navigate Student app. If you booked your appointment by email, contact immigrationadvising@mun.ca to cancel. Please let us know as soon as possible if you are unable to attend your scheduled appointment.
