Conflict in Sudan: Temporary immigration measures
Sudanese nationals in Canada may want to extend their stay because the conflict in Sudan is preventing them from returning home.
Canadian citizens, permanent residents of Canada and their foreign national family members have also had to suddenly flee the country.
As a result, we’ve put in place temporary immigration measures for those affected.
Sudanese nationals in Canada
Temporary measures are in place for Sudanese nationals in Canada who want to extend their temporary resident status or apply for another temporary resident document.
Affected family members of Canadian citizens or permanent residents who fled Sudan
Temporary measures are in place for family members of Canadian citizens or permanent residents who
- left Sudan after the conflict began
- entered Canada before July 15, 2023
Applications in progress from those living in Sudan
We’re prioritizing the processing of complete temporary and permanent residence applications from those living in Sudan. If you have an application in progress, you don’t need to apply again.
