Canada will speed up processing spousal sponsorship application

A recent news release by IRCC promises speeding up the processing of spousal sponsorship applications. They announced the plan on September 24, 2020. Of course, to achieve their goal, IRCC intends to implement the following measures:

  • Increasing the staff responsible for spousal cases by 66%;
  • Adopting a new digitized paper applications technology to allow the officers to review the applications remotely; and
  • Conducting interviews online.

By implementing these measures, IRCC hopes to process up to 6000 spousal applications every month. Consequently, including the applications they have processed so far, IRCC hopes to finalize the processing of 49,000 applications by the end of 2020.
