Immigration Issues/immigration to Quebec from Damascus


Dear expert;
 I have been granted the CSQ 10 months ago followed by immediate application for PR at the Canadian Embassy, Damascus,
processing time indicates that it takes 21 months to the final stage.
but the current situation in Syria is unstable and could end up in civil war. in such a case, if the Canadian Embassy closes, what will happen to the people who have their documents there. and will they stand a chance of getting a PR someday?

best regards

Dear Tammam,

Thank you for your question.  In the event the Canadian government feels that it is unsafe for their staff in Damascus and decides to close the embassy, files will be forwarded to another embassy and processing will continue.  So yes, applicants will still stand a chance.
