With the Covid-19 pandemic still ravaging different parts of the world, travel restrictions in Canada are still in effect. The Canadian government had put some rules and restrictions in place that may have affected the normal procedure for getting a Canadian visitor visa.
Travel Restrictions in Canada
Due to the pandemic, there are travel restrictions in some parts of the world and Canada is not left out.
To prevent the further spread of the deadly virus, Canada has put travel restrictions across its borders.
Applications are still being received for the Canadian visitor visa, but the processing time takes longer and entry into Canada is not guaranteed. To be eligible for consideration you need to be a fully vaccinated traveller and then meet all the other eligibility requirements. Find out if you are eligible to enter Canada.
The restrictions are now slowly being lifted so this will hasten the process up a little bit more. All covid-19 measures and protocols must be taken care of with proof before you will be granted the opportunity to enter Canada.
- Canada is prioritizing Immediate and Extended Families
The IRCC (Immigration, Refugees, and Citizenship Canada) recently updated their website to call for reapplication for the Canadian visitor visa if you applied before September 7th, 2021. The call is specifically for visitors who:
Still have an interest in visiting Canada to reunite with family members whether they are temporary or permanent residents.
Want to visit Canada for compassionate reasons like being a caregiver to a sick person, attending a funeral, and being present for the final moments of a loved one’s life.
The application automatically cancels the previous one and begins a new but faster application process. This new development has been put in place because of the relaxation of the previous border measures. As the country slowly opens up families need to reconnect. The reapplication for the Canadian visitor visa with updated information will give applicants who have loved ones the opportunity to reconnect.
In addition, when applying to come to visit your family and you meet all the travel eligibility, IRCC will process your application in 14 to 30 days.
