The Canadian government currently demands that foreign citizens wait until all supporting records are available before applying.
Due to COVID-19, you might have delays in receiving those papers. You may submit evidence like a receipt and a letter accompanying you in the process of obtaining documents explaining why you couldn’t obtain the necessary documents.
The Government of Canada will currently consider electronically transmitted results of language testing or professional certificates. As soon as you get them, you can submit some pending records to prevent more delays.
Since obtaining an invitation to apply (ITA), Express Entry applicants now have 90 days to apply.
Most foreign nationals cannot fly to Canada to complete their permanent application for citizenship.
If you fulfill the following criteria, you can enter Canada:
- You are issued with a valid COPR card on or before 18 March 2020
- You have an appropriate COPR card released after March 18, 2020, and an immediate member of your family who is a Canadian citizen or permanent resident.
- When you are in the United States and come straight to Canada
- You have to come to Canada to live indefinitely and prove that you can quarantine for fourteen days.
If there is a COPR, but there is no COPR yet:
The orders on Immigrants, Refugees, and Citizenship Canada should be pending. To check your COPR at an entry port, you do not fly to Canada, so you are not permitted to enter.
It is necessary to take care of your health and that of others when you come to Canada. That is why all foreign nationals traveling to Canada must complete a quarantine duration of 14 days upon arrival by the Canadian Government.
You will have to show Canadian border authorities that you have a schedule for this quarantine to complete. You won’t be able to join Canada if you don’t.
While the Canadian economy is improving, many still fail to recover. Whilst Canada provides a variety of newcomer programs that are specially designed for seeking jobs in Canada, finding jobs can also be challenging at present.
