Will I still be able to apply for a Canadian spouse visa or common-law partner visa application during the Covid 19 crisis?
The good news is that the Canadian government has announced despite the coronavirus Covid 19 crisis they will continue to accept and process Canadian spouse visa and common-law visa applications for partners who are both in Canada and abroad.
The Canadian government has introduced special measures to assist in submitting and processing Canadian family class applications.
If for any reason you are unable to provide key documents to support your application, this will not result in a refusal. Further time to submit will be permitted. Incomplete applications will be kept and reviewed in 90 days. If the application is still incomplete in 60 days, IRCC officers will request the missing documents with an additional 90-day deadline. This would include the inability to provide police certificates and passport photos.
All requests for a medical or biometric have been extended to 90 days from the usual 30-day time limit
