The High Commission of Canada in Nigeria on Thursday said visa application centres in Abuja and Lagos remained open to the public despite the temporary suspension of operations at the Mission in Abuja.
The mission disclosed this in a statement on Thursday by Demilade Kosemani, Public Affairs Department, High Commission of Canada, Abuja.
The High Commission had on Tuesday announced on its official X (formerly known as Twitter) page the closure of operations in its Abuja office until further notice.
It said the decision was a result of the fire incident at the High Commission on Monday which killed two people.
However, in another post on X on Thursday, the Mission said: “As we continue to mourn the passing of our dear colleague from the High Commission of Canada in Abuja, please note the following information below: Immigration, Refugee and Citizenship Canada (IRCC clients: processing of applications continues).
“Regardless of the suspension of operations at the High Commission of Canada in Abuja, the Visa application centres in Abuja and Lagos remain open.”
