Students who wish to study abroad should be prepared for longer visa application processing times. When compared to other years, visa processing delays have made international students and agents submit applications much earlier. Like Australia, the UK, and the US, Canada also experienced immigration processing delays during the pandemic, doubling the backlog. That enormous number comprises those who have applied for permanent residency, temporary residence, or citizenship, as well as international students and graduates. Despite the slow processing times of student visas, these study abroad destinations are seeing a resurgence in international enrolment.
