Check Application Processing Times for SINP

The SINP processing time information is updated every quarter (every three months). It shows the time it has taken to process an application after we receive a complete application package in the most recent quarter.  This time is measured in months for each category. Processing times can change at any time.

The processing times below show the average time (in months), that it takes for 80 per cent of applications to be processed. This time is measured from when the complete application is received to when it’s processed. 

These processing times are an average based on the past quarter (or three months). They may not tell you precise processing times for future applications.
