Why do immigration applications take so long?

The immigration application process might get delayed or take too long due to the following reasons


The global pandemic has created huge impacts on the immigration process all over the world. Many embassies and high commissions across the world had to force shut down their offices which resulted in a huge backlog of applications to work through. Thus the delay in immigration applications.

2.Submitting wrong documents or applying under the wrong program

At times due to a lack of knowledge and information, many applicants tend to either submit wrong documents or apply under the wrong programs. You must ensure to check your documents several times or take consultation from your lawyer before submitting your documents or applying under any immigration program.

3.Incomplete documents 

Another reason why you might face a delay in your application process is due to submitting incomplete documents. In extreme cases, your application might also get rejected if you fail to submit your documents accordingly. Therefore if you are applying in the right stream, it is crucial that you submit all your documents asked by the government.

4.Providing wrong information

Lastly, misrepresenting yourself while applying for the immigration process can lead to serious problems along with delays in your application. Misrepresentation is considered a criminal offense in Canada and you might be charged heavily if found guilty. 

How to speed up my permanent residence application?

To get your permanent residence application approved quickly you might have to consider many factors such as submission of correct documents, meeting the eligibility criteria, knowledge of speaking and writing French or English, and many more. At times it becomes extremely exhausting and difficult for you to maintain everything on your own, given the sometimes repeated requests from the immigration department. Therefore you must ensure to hire services from a good and reliable PR lawyer in order to get your application approved as quickly as possible. PR lawyers make sure to guide you and assist you throughout your application process and highlight vital aspects of the program, which otherwise might be overlooked by many individuals. 

Is it necessary to stay in Canada once I’ve obtained my PR status?

After obtaining your permanent residence status you have to comply with certain rules and regulations to keep your status such as to be physically present in Canada for a cumulative period of two years for each five years within a five year period. On the other hand, you can also accumulate residency time if you travel outside the country with your spouse or a common-law partner who has Canadian citizenship.
