If you’re facing delays in your application process, there are several options to consider:
- Check Application Status Online: You can check your application status through the IRCC’s website. Make sure all required documents are complete and up to date to prevent unnecessary delays.
- Contact IRCC Customer Center: Reach out to the IRCC customer center via a web form inquiry or phone call. They might offer a substantive response to your query. If the response is unsatisfactory, you can consider the following step.
- Engage with Local Members of Parliament: If necessary, you can ask a local Member of Parliament to file a status update request on your behalf. This can help escalate your case and potentially expedite a resolution.
- File an ATIP Application: You can file an Access to Information and Privacy Application (ATIP) to receive more detailed information about your application processing. This can include Computer Assisted Immigration Processing System (CAIPS) or Field Operations Support System (FOSS) notes. These notes provide insights into your application’s progress, highlighting any issues or concerns raised by IRCC officers. This can be an opportunity to address those concerns by submitting additional evidence or clarifications.
By utilizing these options, you can proactively address delays in your application and work towards a resolution.
