“As part of the restructuring, the visa offices in Detroit and Seattle will be closed and workloads transferred to other offices. The Canadian Embassy in Washington, D.C. will cease processing of Temporary Resident Permit (TRP), Rehabilitation and Authority to Return to Canada (ARC) applications. TRP, Rehabilitation and ARC applications should now be submitted to either of the visa offices in New York or Los Angeles.”
Effective immediately, new U.S. and Canada based Temporary Resident Visa (TRV), Study Permit and Work Permit applications can be submitted online or to the appropriate visa office. All study permit applications will be processed at the visa office in Los Angeles and all work permit applications will be processed at the visa office in New York. The east-west divide along the Mississippi, previously instructed in OBs 427 and 435, will cease to be a determining factor in where to submit applications. This OB supersedes OBs 427 and 435, which have both been expired.
