The Number of Temporary Visa refusals are on the rise, according to reports
According to a report from the Globe and Mail, Canada refused more than a quarter of all candidate applications in 2017 and in the first three months of 2018. The report from the Globe and Mail was published on July 8th. It is based on data obtained by the Globe and Mail from immigration, Refugees and Citizenship (IRCC) which shows the number of Temporary Visa candidates for purposes including tourism, school, business, conferences and family visits. The number of refusals increasing significantly since 2012. During the years 2012 and 2017, the yearly number of applications processed each year by the IRCC, increased from 1.3 million to 2.3 million, the Globe and Mail claims. In that same period, the number of applications that were refused soared to higher than 600,000 in 2017. Of those 600,000, 494,133 of them were non-student TRV applications, who were refused at a 26% in 2017. In comparison, in 2012 the refusal rate for non-student TRV’s was 18 per cent. The data that was calculated for the first three months of 2018, surpassed the numbers of last year by a 30% increase for non-student visas.
According to the Globe and Mail, the data reveal is becoming more difficult to get a Canadian visa approved- “and the odds against applicants are rising”. Refusal ratings were highest for candidates from Africa and the Middle East, 75% of which were from Somalia, Yemen, Syria and Afghanistan being rejected in the last two years.
