Factors that influence processing times

We evaluate applications on a case-by-case basis, and processing timelines can vary depending on a variety of factors, including:

  • Whether you’ve submitted a full application with all of the required supporting materials
  • How quickly you reply to requests for further information
  • How long does it take to complete the appropriate checks on the supporting data?
  • How long it takes to get more information from outside agencies, especially when it comes to health, character, and national security concerns
  • How many spots in the migration program are available for permanent migration visa applications?
  • The time it takes to attend a Citizenship Ceremony or acquire a Citizenship Certificate in the case of citizenship applications.
