Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada is reducing its number of employees in India from 27 to five.
BAL Analysis: IRCC will continue to accept and process applications in India, but reduced staffing levels are expected to impact processing times. IRCC staff who remain in India will focus on urgent processing, visa printing, risk assessment and overseeing key partners. The Canadian government has stated that applicants in India should expect delays in overall processing times, responses to inquiries and getting visas and passports returned. BAL will provide additional updates as information becomes available.
This alert has been provided by the BAL Global Practice Group.
