Visa Applications Suspended Due to Ebola in Africa

(Below is a transcription of this video)

Hi this is Michael Niren, immigration lawyer and founder of Immigration Minister Chris Alexander has announced that Ebola is a concern, and that certain countries where widespread Ebola exists, the individuals who apply for visas from those countries will not be permitted to have those visas processed until I suppose the Ebola epidemic is under control in those countries.

Countries Affected

The countries in question are Liberia, Sierra Leone, and Guinea, so individuals from those countries will not be able to have their visa applications processed nor their permanent resident applications processed. So we will keep you posted on this, and see whether or not those suspensions will be lifted. I assume if and when the Ebola epidemic over there in Africa will be put under control or there be other measures to protect Canadians from individuals coming from those countries who may be suspected of having Ebola.

Completely smooth process. Rania did a great job in my Canada work permit. The team is absolutely competent and knowledgeable. Alicea was so amazing and was able to answer any of my questions immediately. I had peace of mind throughout the application. I would recommend them to other friends looking for assistance with their applications.

I highly recommend VisaPlace to anyone seeking help with navigating the legal minefield that is Permanent Residency. As someone who is very easily stressed, Lauren & Mariana have saved me a lot of sleepless nights. They are fast, efficient, reliable and honest and I will be telling any of my friends to use them for immigration. Thanks to them, my future with my husband in Canada is bright
