Temporary resident visas (TRVs): COVID-19 program delivery

This section contains policy, procedures and guidance used by IRCC staff. It is posted on the department’s website as a courtesy to stakeholders.

These program delivery instructions align with the Ministerial Instructions (MIs) that are in effect from April 1, 2022 to March 31, 2023. While processing continues for temporary resident visa (TRV) applications, intake has been limited, until further notice, to applications submitted online (with the exception for those with a disability who cannot apply online). Information about the cohorts of applicants who are exempt from the requirement to submit a TRV application using electronic means can be found at Temporary residence: COVID-19 program delivery.
