IRCC 计划免除已经在加拿大的永久和临时居留申请人的签证/移民体检要求，具体细节待公布。预计有大约 180,000 人将因此受益，他们不仅可以免去高昂的体检费，还直接快进了申请步骤，减少等待时间。
In an effort to reduce wait times, Fraser is exempting permanent and temporary residence applicants who are already in Canada from the immigration medical exam requirement. This measure only applies to people who meet certain criteria. The media release did not specify the criteria, nor when the measure would take effect. IRCC expects it to impact about 180,000 newcomers.
Canada had previously waived the medical exam requirement between June 2021 and March 2022.
The release says the measure is intended to further reduce wait times and build on the hiring of 1,250 new employees to help increase processing capacity.
