On March 25, 2022, the Government of Canada updated instructions regarding the centralized receipt of invoices from interpreters. According to the updated instructions, applicants who use interpretation services by the Government have to send the invoice to the interpreter for approval. Then, the interpreter has to forward the invoice to National Payment and Accounting Services (NPAS) within 10 business days in order for payment to be made. Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) offers accredited and security-cleared interpreters for some applicants (refugees, select permanent residence applications, etc.) to help them complete their applications.
