It tends to happen that the processing time is variable. It depends on the visa office where the applicant applies. The Citizenship and Immigration Canada department is known for the maintenance of the information regarding processing times so that an applicant can have an idea of the application processing periods in different visa offices.
There are some extra formalities for the citizens of some countries, which can take more weeks in processing time. An applicant is informed if such requirements apply to them.
If a candidate is required to undergo a medical exam, it will take more months in the application processing time. As per general rules, a medical exam is not needed for the candidates planning to visit Canada for the period less than 6 months. A Canadian immigration officer informs the candidate and provides the instructions for a medical exam if needed.
