Many people considering immigrating to Canada were left with a lot of doubt and concerns after the pandemic struck. “Will my visa still be processed and how long will it take?” and “Will I be able to enter Canada with my visa?” are just a few examples.
Immigration, Refugees, and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) never stopped accepting or processing visa applications, despite a small delay in processing. However, some of Canada’s immigration policies have been prioritised based on the country’s requirements as well as labour market needs during COVID-19.
Under the Express Entry scheme, which is inviting around 4,000 applicants to apply for permanent residence every two weeks, some of these systems include the Canadian Experience Class and Provincial Nominee programmes. To date, 66,475 newcomers have been issued with Invitations to Apply (ITAs) for permanent residency. With half of the year almost over and an immigration target of issuing 401,000 ITAs by the end of 2021, your chances of receiving your own ITA are more than promising!
This is dependent on a number of variables. The first factor that may influence the time it takes for your visa application to be processed is where you are applying from. The second aspect is the programme or visa you are applying for, and the third is the specifics of your case, including your form of application and whether or not your application was complete.
