New IRCC Policy Clearing Up Visitor And Super Visa Backlog

IRCC published the details of new temporary public policy on June 29, 2023 which has been speeding up the processing of visitor visa and super visa applications.

Originally, this public policy came in effect with signature of Immigration Minister Sean Fraser on February 28, 2023 and is valid until December 31, 2023.

As per the latest available data, IRCC has been managing around 2.25 million immigration and visa applications.

Out of these, 1.3 million are temporary resident visa applications which includes study permits, visitor visa, super visa, and work permits.

New IRCC temporary policy is aimed at clearing the accumulating visitor visa and super visa inventory to increase Canada’s appeal to visitors, families, and business people.
