IRCC updated the Express Entry completeness check instruction


On January 8, 2021, Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) has updated program delivery instruction for the Express Entry completeness check. The new instruction now clearly states that applicants have 90 days to submit their full application from the moment of acceptance of the invitation to apply. Earlier, IRCC has changed this period to 60 days but amid COVID-19, Ottawa grants more time to submit all the documents. IRCC clarified that it starts counting the six-month processing standard from the moment the application has been submitted. Additionally, IRCC updated the wording for the instruction on the acceptable translation of supporting documents.
