The Canadian office has made the decision to change the P2 Visa Regular Processing times. Although most files are processed within 45 days, recently a small handful hit or went over the 45-day mark. They are recommending musicians submit the P2 package to their office at least 60 days prior to the first performance for Regular P2 Processing. This is a precautionary measure as they are aware of some administrative changes at USCIS and don’t want to be blindsided by some potential backlog at their end. Please check the website for the most up-to-date information. The updated P2 documents with the new timelines are uploaded there. http://www.cfmusicians.org/services/work-permits.
