The processing time begins the day Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) receives an application and ends the day a final decision is made.

Generally, the processing time for any given application depends on the following factors:

  • the type of application submitted
  • if the application is complete;
  • how quickly IRCC expects to process applications already in the system;
  • how easily applicants’ information can be verified;
  • how long applicants take to respond to any requests or concerns; and
  • other factors.
