There’s an immigration backlog in Canada with over 1.8 million people waiting to see what’s happened with their applications, according to data from Canada’s department of immigration (IRCC) as of mid-March.
This backlog includes everyone—from people who want to become permanent residents, to temporary workers, visitors and international students.
With long delays in visa processing times, we’d like to hear from applicants in Canada who are facing delays in their visa applications.
How long have you been waiting for the specific visa (renewal/extension) that you are working/studying under?
Has the wait times/delays impacted your travel plans? Has it kept you away from reuniting with your families?
Are you getting your queries answered from the customer service/helpline at IRCC?
Do you have any questions or concerns about your visa status in Canada? Send them to us and we will put them to an expert.
If you are willing to share your story, please reach out and email us at email@example.com with your name, location and contact information, as well as some details about your situation, and we may get in touch.
