News 1130 reported:
Canada is following in Australia’s footsteps and is suspending visa applications for residents and nationals of the West African countries battling Ebola.
The Department of Citizenship and Immigration has issued a bulletin saying it will stop issuing visas in the worker, student or visitor class and won’t issue any pending permanent residency visas for people from those countries, either.
Any applications already in the system will also not be processed at this time.
