Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) now processes spousal Temporary Resident Visas (TRVs) in just 30 days for applicants who have already applied for permanent residency in Canada. This means that applicants no longer need to wait in their home countries for IRCC to make a decision but can instead come to Canada and wait for the processing to be completed. As a result, Canadians or permanent residents with spouses and dependents abroad can be reunited with their families faster and begin settling in their communities. However, it is essential to note that spouses and dependents on a TRV can only work or study in Canada once they are approved for permanent residence or obtain a work or study permit.
