Special measures to help residents and applicants affected by COVID‑19

Special measures to help temporary and permanent residents and applicants affected by the novel coronavirus (COVID‑19)

Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) has put special measures in place to help you, if

  • you’re a Chinese, Iranian or South Korean national; or
  • you’re in China, Iran or South Korea; and
  • you’re affected by service disruptions or travel restrictions related to the novel coronavirus (COVID-19)

Disruptions include the following:

  • visa application centre closures
  • service disruptions at Canadian visa offices
  • travel plan disruptions
  • limited access to local government offices and businesses
  • limited access to a panel physician who can do the immigration medical exam

There is also help available if you need a permanent resident travel document to travel back to Canada.
