Canada Spousal TRV Processing in 30 days, 90% Approval Rate

The Immigration Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) has reduced the processing time for spousal Temporary Resident Visas (TRVs) to 30 days. This change applies to individuals who have applied for permanent residency in Canada as a spouse.

IRCC Spousal TRV Processing Time Reduced to 30 Days with 90% Approval Rate

As a result, these applicants can now travel to Canada while their application is being processed, instead of having to wait for a decision in their home countries. This allows spouses and dependents of Canadians or permanent residents to be reunited with their families and settle in their new location more quickly. However, it is important to note that spouses and dependents cannot work on a TRV unless they have obtained permanent residence or a work or study permit.

Immigration Minister Sean Fraser revealed on May 26 that a new service standard would be implemented. He also disclosed that the approval rating for spousal Temporary Resident Visas (TRV) exceeded 90%. This increase in approval rate was attributed to the extensive utilization of advanced technology to pre-screen TRV applications before they are reviewed by an IRCC officer for the final decision. Minister Fraser emphasized that technology enables the department to thoroughly analyze and evaluate the likelihood of an individual’s application being granted permanent residency. Moreover, the use of advanced technology facilitates the efficient categorization of applications, enabling IRCC Officers to easily approve them.

Duration for processing the sponsorship of family class

The time it takes to process permanent residence applications through the family class sponsorship is one year. While waiting for a decision from IRCC on their application, a sponsored spouse, partner, or dependent child can come to Canada and begin working in as little as three months (90 days). This is made possible by the expedited processing time of spousal TRVs within 30 days and the IRCC’s service standard of 60 days for work permits.
