IRCC will use advanced data analytics to process temporary resident visa applications

On January 24, 2022, the Government of Canada announced that Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) will use advanced data analytics to sort and process temporary resident visa (TRV) applications submitted from outside Canada.

This Ai system scans documents for key words and flags. Likely what will happen is if you meet all the requirements and you have no issues in your application then a brief review from the immigration officer and a decision will be made.

However, if you have certain key words like certain countries, or past refusals they likely will be sent for full review.

With the conversations I have had with other immigration consultants it seems that the submission must also be in pdf and jpg format. If not in file format that meets the IA skill it will be sent out to be reviewed by the officer.

The use of the advanced system is part of IRCC’s commitment to improving client service and application processing.

IRCC officers will continue to make the final decision on applications, approve, or refuse them.

The system will assist in managing IRCC’s increasing volume of TRV applications and will not have any impact on the decision-making. #IRCC, #TRV, #advanced_data_analytics, #application_processing
