IRCC News: Improved Application Processing Time

August 9th –  The IRCC has changed some application processes and will now give an accurate time for applicants to know their permanent residence application processes.

As stated by IRCC website:

The new projected processing times will apply to applications received on or after July 31, 2018 in these business lines:

  • Sponsoring a family member
    • Parents and Grandparents
  • Economic Class
    • Provincial Nominees (Non-Express Entry)
    • Skilled Workers (Quebec)
    • Start-Up Visa
  • Humanitarian and compassionate cases
  • It should be noted that for clients who have already applied, withdrawing an application and re-applying will not result in faster processing times:

    • Any application processing already complete would become null and void and clients would have to submit a new application.

    • For some types of applications, such as Express Entry and Parents and Grandparents, a client who withdraws their application runs the risk of not receiving a subsequent invitation to apply or invitation to sponsor.
