About Canadian Immigration Wait Times…

It is not a rare occurrence to have clients phone into our office to inquire about the long wait times for the processing of their applications by Citizenship and Immigration Canada (CIC). Unfortunately, Canada’s desirability as a new home for those wishing for a fresh start is the main cause of this backlog.

Check CIC’s Website for Immigration Wait Times

However, while long waits are par for the course, particularly for applications for permanent residence, they need not be excessive. At Niren & Associates, we consistently ensure that our clients’ files are up-to-date and that their applications are being processed at normal rates by CIC. We do our very best to make sure you get a response regarding your application as quickly as possible.

Canadian Immigration Wait Times Can Vary

I strongly recommend that everyone consult with CIC’s webpage and be aware of the standard wait time for the application you wish to file. Keep in mind that errors and omissions on your applications can increase their wait time, or even result in a rejection. To ensure the lowest possible Canadian immigration wait time, contact a licensed immigration lawyer.

    One way to avoid long wait times altogether is to consider applying for Temporary Visas as a “first step” towards Immigration. Student or Work Visas are processed much faster than Permanent Residence Applications and in some cases, having a temporary visa will strengthen your future application for Permanent Residence. It is a “win-win” scenario!

Customer Reviews

I could not have asked for more! The VisaPlace team are extremely professional, they know their stuff. They gave me great information, prepared my work visa application and then prepared me for the submission process. I was successful. Got my visa. 5 stars! I would give them 6 if I could.

This is not an exaggeration!!! I was truly impressed with the way VisaPlace consultants handled my case. The consultants- Emily, Lauren, Takunda and Lisa, took their time to explain to me in great deal how they were going to approach my case and how they would handle setbacks, if any. Their professionalism and knowledge of the law were superb. The minor setback that came up was quickly addressed by the team. The team constantly kept me updated on the progress/status of my application; they quickly responded to my questions/concerns. They had predicated my permanent residency to be processed within 6 -12, and Indeed it was processed and completed within 6 months. Based on my personal experience, Emily and Lauren's team are the best! They deserve 5 stars!!!!!!!!!!!

VisaPlace helped me sponsor my husband to become a Permanent Resident of Canada. They were extremely professional. Every step along the way was explained fully and expertly taken care of. The staff responded immediately to any questions and always handled our concerns fully, taking as much time as we needed to understand where we were at in the immigration process and what to expect next. I would recommend VisaPlace with no hesitation at all. I'm sure if we had tried to navigate the immigration process ourselves, it would have been much harder.
