IQAS Daily Limit Reached Issue workaround


New member
"IQAS daily limit of applications for immigration purposes has been reached for today. The application portal will re-open at 8:15 am Alberta / Mountain Time. Thank you for your interest in IQAS. " This is the common problem all users are facing. IQAS has allotted a quota system and you have to create an application exactly around 8:15 MST time. You will get around 5 minutes to create application.

Workaround for IQAS Daily Limit Reached Issue:


  • Ensure Fast and Stable Internet Connection. Preferably fiber broadband 50 mbps or higher
  • Use a fast computer/laptop
  • Disable ad blocker and popup blocker in browser (Use Microsoft Edge)

  1. Login at 8:00 MST
  2. Complete Draft Application or Make online Payment
  3. Quickly check all the details one by one. (Time: complete within 10 minutes)
  4. Go to final payment page at 8:14:00 MST (where credit card and preview option is there.  Initially, it will show IQAS daily limit of applications for immigration purposes has been reached for today

    • Refresh the page once or twice (you will get same message of daily limit reached..)
    • Do a final refresh sharp between 8:14:30 MST and 8:14:40 MST
    • Once the page refreshed DO NOT WAIT - Just click preview and payment (Don't wait for preview file).
    • Another page will open and you will have 5 minutes to make final payment
For reference, this is MST to IST conversion:

I had same problem for a long time but finally solved it yesterday.

This is what I did:

Keep focus on 8.15 Alberta time. Watch out for 8:15 Alberta time. Log on 5-10 minutes early and stay on the page.
On new application page select ECA and wait for the page to load. If you get a prompt about limit select okay and try again.
Copy and keep the link ready. Paste it 5 mins prior to 8.15.
Keep scrolling up and down to avoid session timeout
