We are a group of likely immigrants to Canada based on economic programs such as FSW (Federal Skilled Worker) and PNP (Provincial Nomination Program). The goal of CIC is to process all applicants who have applied for residency through the express entry platform within 6 months or less. We have noticed that our application which falls in the jurisdiction of Canadian visa office in Accra, Ghana has been totally stalled for months without any movement on the files. Other VO’s such as London and Ottawa visa office process all cases on time within the six months time frame and even earlier. There are many applicants waiting for more than 12 months and no word from Accra visa office. Some applications has not exceeded the six months but knowing the current processing time frame at this office it becomes a great concern that these applicants will be stalled for months as others who already exceeded over 6 months. Many of us have gone through a long road before been nominated by a province and already excited at the great opportunity to migrate and contribute economically to the respective provinces, however we are stalled. We feel all West African applicants are been unnecessarily delayed compared to other people from around the world.

We humbly ask for your intervention with IRCC to see applicants Permanent Residency applications filed through the express entry platform for FSW and PNP processed in a timely manner by the Canadian visa office in Accra, Ghana. This office is responsible for processing Permanent Resident Applications from: Nigeria, Benin, Equatorial Guinea, Ghana, Liberia, Sao Tome e Principe, Sierra Leone, St. Helena, Togo, Tristan da Cunha e.t.c
