On June 26, Jane Waikenda was appointed to the office of Director of Immigration Services. Since then, she has already begun to implement changes to staff and to the application adjudication process. The transition period is expected to cause delays in the processing of work, citizenship and permanent residence permits, and may also delay decisions for dependant, pupil and special passes.

No information is yet known about the impacts of these changes or the delays they may cause. BAL will provide updates as they become available.
