Visa delays leaving international students in limbo for fall semester

International students are facing visa delays that could impact their ability to arrive on campus in time for the Fall semester, reports CTV News. Canadian immigration backlogs have left many students waiting for their visas, which Joe Friesen of the Globe and Mail states leaves them at risk of missing the start of their classes and having to defer their studies for up to a year. Mint reports that the High Commission of India in Ottawa has issued an advisory for Indian students who are enrolled at Canadian institutions and are facing visa application delays. “We are trying to get as many people here for their start date as possible,” said Immigration Minister Sean Fraser, who added that the delays are being driven by a major increase in the number of study permits being issued this year.
