Immigration Inquiries and Issues

Global Affairs Canada has issued an advisory to avoid all non-essential travel outside of Canada until further notice. To limit the spread of COVID-19, many countries have put in place travel or border restrictions and other measures such as movement restrictions and quarantines. As a result, your travel plans may be severely disrupted and/or you may be forced to remain outside of Canada longer than expected.

Please contact Mihaela Harmos at with any questions or concerns relating to your immigration status during the COVID-19 outbreak.
