The IRCC has announced that beginning on July 1st, Canada will resume processing all online applications for visitor visas, transit visas and electronic travel authorizations (eTAs).
Canada’s travel restrictions still apply, so many people will not be able to travel to Canada at this time. Resuming processing of these visas is an effort to be proactive on future processing times.
The IRCC will continue to process study permit and work permit applications submitted online as well as permanent residence applications. Paper applications for visitor visas, study and work permits will not be processed until further notice.
Canada has put measures in place to ensure applicants have the time they need to complete all steps of the application process, including giving their biometrics.
