To help impacted clients, the Government of Canada has expanded its special measures to applicants in Iran and South Korea. The special measures were first introduced on February 7, 2020 for applicants in China.

An example of these special measures are clients who applied for visitor visa, study permit, work permit or permanent residence, but cannot complete the next steps in their process (such as giving fingerprints and photos) within the specific deadline, will be given more time.
