Canada Prioritizes Filipino Applicants Affected by Typhoon Haiyan

There is a good news from Canada's Citizenship and Immigration Minister Chris Alexander:

" Ottawa, November 13, 2013 — Canada's Citizenship and Immigration Minister Chris Alexander announced today that, effective immediately, Canada will be prioritizing the processing of applications on request from Filipinos who are significantly and personally affected by Typhoon Haiyan.

As well, Canadians without travel documents as a result of the typhoon will have their applications expedited by the Canadian Embassy in Manila. Requests from Filipino citizens temporarily in Canada who wish to extend their stay will be assessed in a compassionate and flexible manner.

In support of these measures, Citizenship and Immigration Canada (CIC) has set up special email addresses and a dedicated phone line to respond to requests from applicants and their families.

Overseas: Applicants who can demonstrate that they are significantly and personally affected and wish to declare their cases a priority can contact the visa office in Manila directly at manila-im-enquiry@international.gc.ca.

In Canada: Similarly, applicants and their family members who wish to declare their cases as a priority can contact situation-philippines@cic.gc.ca or contact CIC's Call Centre at 1-888-242-2100, which has a dedicated crisis line. CIC continues to closely monitor the situation and will consider other facilitative measures as necessary. "
