HOW FAST WILL IRCC PROCESS MY TEMPORARY RESIDENCE APPLICATION IN 2024 ?

How fast will IRCC process my temporary residence application in 2024?

Foreign nationals seek temporary residence (TR) in Canada for many reasons, including to work, study, or visit the country.

Although there are varying eligibility criteria and requirements for each TR pathway to Canada, many foreign nationals are keen to find out how long it will take them to arrive in Canada.

This is why Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) publishes its service standards for processing applications.

These service standards, which vary depending on a candidate’s application type (work permit, study permit etc.), outline the number of weeks (or months) that IRCC has deemed reasonable to make a final decision on an application.

 

Service standards, therefore, provide applicants with a better idea of how long IRCC will take to decide whether their application will be approved, returned or denied.

Applicants should be aware that processing can take longer than IRCC’s published service standards depending on the type of permit they are applying for and where they are applying from.

Details about IRCC’s service standards

IRCC says that it aims to process 80% of submitted applications across almost* all lines of business within service standards.

*This applies to all TR lines of business except for International Experience Canada (IEC) work permits. See more in the IEC work permit section below.

Note: IRCC clarifies that service standards only apply to complete applications that include all required information and supporting documents. Also, processing time does not include the time it takes to send an application between a visa application centre and IRCC’s office, or the time it takes an applicant to submit biometrics.
