An Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) official responded, “We are making every effort to shorten wait times for our services globally.”
“As of August 15, more than 75,000 Indian study permit applications were in the processing inventory,” the official told. These are the visas received by Indians who wish to study at a Canadian university. The processing inventory is the backlog of pending cases.
The substantial inventory backlog, according to IRCC, was caused in part by “a rise in the number of study permit applications this year. IRCC received approximately 123,500 study visa applications from Indian residents in the first five months of 2022, or 55% more than during the same period in 2019, prior to the epidemic.”
“Despite the priority of study permit applications for students looking to begin their studies in September, it is predicted that some overseas students will not have their application approved in time to begin their studies in person for the fall 2022 intake session,” it warned.
