Immigration measures in support of those affected by the earthquake in Nepal

Canada’s Citizenship and Immigration Minister Chris Alexander announced that,nepal effective immediately, Canada will be prioritizing the processing of immigration applications already in progress on request from those who are significantly and personally affected by the earthquake in Nepal.

Requests from Nepalese citizens temporarily in Canada who need to extend their stay will be assessed in a compassionate and flexible manner.

In support of these measures, Citizenship and Immigration Canada (CIC) has set up a special email address and a dedicated phone line to respond to requests from applicants and their families.

We are assessing other regions and more information will be provided as the situation evolves.
