How COVID-19 is affecting applications to visit, work or study in Canada

Until further notice, most people can’t travel to Canada, even if they have a valid visitor visa or electronic travel authorization (eTA). Some people may still be able to travel to Canada if they’re exempt from the travel restrictions and coming for an essential purpose.

So we can keep processing applications from people who are exempt from the travel restrictions, we’re temporarily changing how you can apply to visit, work or study in Canada.

Between April 9 and 29, 2020, the application process will change for

  • visitor visas (including transit visas)
  • eTAs
  • study permits
  • work permits
