Hi, my name is Michael Niren, immigration lawyer and founder of VisaPlace.com. Canada immigration has promised to make efforts to reduce lengthy processing times for immigration applications. In some cases, processing times could take well over a year. In some cases, two, three years, which is unacceptable.
The good news is that Citizen and Immigration Canada has seemed to have reduced the processing time. Their target is
generally for 12 months or less for visa applications for permanent resident applications and it seems that they are keeping their promises. Application, processing times are going down. Which is great news for applicants. It’s great news for us. And, we look forward to faster and faster processing times.
Of course, in order to speed up your application, the best practices must be followed. For example, a complete application, making sure that the forms are filled out properly. The government fees are paid. Everything is done the way it should be done, because if it is not, what ends up happening is that you file your application and then I am going to send you a letter, asking you for additional information or clarification.
That letter could cost you delays in amount of months and sometimes years. So, regardless of their processing times, you have to play your part and make sure that your application package, when you submit it, is solid and complete.
But regardless, I am just very happy to report that the immigration processing times have been reduced, or at least, they seem to have been reduced, at least from our perspective. Our cases are going through this system faster than they used to be. So let’s hope the trend continues. Thank you and have a great day.
