Late last week, the Canadian Federation of musicians (CFM) was informed that the Immigration Service Centers are backlogged by at least two weeks.  So please have in mind that the minimum processing time would be 45 calendar days.


Also, as a friendly reminder the CFM will process & send to US Immigration all complete applications within 72 hours of receipt (weekends & holidays excepted). The 72 hour turn around time is figured into the minimum processing requirement provided above. 

Note: it is strongly recommended on applications received with less than 45 days to process, that the Department of Homeland Security premium processing fee, being an additional $1225USD, is paid.




Please make note the  CFM office will be closed on Friday July 15th AND Monday July 18th to facilitate the move.  The office closing will obviously have an impact on our above-noted processing time policy for P2’s.  Please ensure to plan ahead for this minor disruption in service.
