Canada has announced that if you have submitted a Canadian Visitor Visa Application before September 7, 2021, then you are recommended to submit a new application.
Due to COVID-19, the visitor visa processing times have been delayed and backlogged more than usual. If you’ve been waiting for a decision and want to travel to Canada in the near future, then you may need to resubmit a new application.
