The sharp drop in the number of Chinese people who have been granted Canadian Super Visas this year
Fewer and fewer Chinese people have been granted Super Visas in recent years, and the COVID-19 outbreak has made this situation even worse. In the first quarter of this year, 149 Chinese citizens were granted Super Visas. This is a significant drop compared to the same period in 2019. According to figures provided by the Canadian immigration department, the number of Chinese citizens who were granted Super Visas have declined year after year since 2017. The IRCC stated that due to the COVID-19 crisis, the department is unable to process a high number of applications and cannot provide an accurate processing time.
