This is strictly my opinion.. AL requires less work and gets the job done.. I think issuing COPR and PRV involves a lot of work, could be a lot of processes at backend and with all the people emailing and calling there is a lot of backlog..Why are they sending AL to those who received COPR on or before march 18th 2020? Shouldn't a reissue of COPR with original date suffice? Pre march 18th are exempted from their restrictions, it would be easier to extend/reissue their COPR/visa foil.
This is ridiculous
