The Minister explained on Twitter that older applications that were submitted during travel restrictions related to the coronavirus are still being processed, which is why Canada’s official website displays 802 days.
Attention Pakistani visa applicants ????— Sean Fraser (@SeanFraserMP) May 4, 2023
Visa processing times are not 802 days for new applications. Currently, a complete TRV application from Pakistan will be processed in 60 days, and we expect to hit 30 days in the near future.
He revealed that fewer than 15 percent of the 55,000 applications for Pakistani TRVs had been processed. Fraser also revealed that the Canadian government plans to expand the processing and interviewing capacity of the area by opening a new processing center in Islamabad. Canada will quicken the process of obtaining business visas.

The Minister praised the upcoming Canadian General Preferential Tariff (GPT+) program for developing nations and expressed hope that this program would benefit Pakistan, particularly its newly proposed industries such as apparel and footwear.
