Ottawa updated instructions for Iranian nationals applying for the pre-removal risk assessment

On December 22, 2022, the Government of Canada updated instructions regarding the bar on applying to the pre-removal risk assessment (PRRA) exemption for Iranian nationals. According to the update, Iranian nationals who received an Immigration and Refugee Board decision or a PRRA decision between December 20, 2021, and December 19, 2022, are exempt from the 12-month bar. However, those with decisions made after December 19, 2022, are still subject to the 12-month bar. The Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) will notify qualifying Iranian nationals that they can make a PRRA application.
