To reduce the backlog of visitor visa applications, Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) is planning to decrease the Visitor visa applications backlog. The government is considering decisive measures by lifting some eligibility criteria for nearly half a million applications. This necessary action will significantly shorten wait times while allowing more people to visit Canada. An IRCC memo revealed two potential strategies to reduce the number of visitor visa applications. The first approach would involve processing an estimated 195,000 applications in bulk, while the second option considers relaxing eligibility criteria for as many as 450,000 candidates.
