PROCESSING CHANGES FOR VISAS DUE TO COVID-19
Until further notice, most visitors cannot travel to Canada, even if they have a valid visitor visa or electronic travel authorization (eTA). Exceptions apply to those visitors who are exempt from
travel restrictions and coming for an essential purpose.
This change has been put in place so focus can be placed on those individuals who are exempt from travel restrictions. Between April 9 and April 29, 2020, the application process will change for:
- visitor visas
- study permits
- work permits
