    Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) and United Kingdom Visas and Immigration (UKVI) have embarked on a major change program designed to transform the way that they run their visa application system. IRCC and UKVI have implemented a Global Visa Application Centre (VAC) Network having awarded a seven-year contract to a partnership consisting of VFS Global (lead) and IOM (project partner). This VAC network will provide applicants with more convenient avenues for visa submissions and better access to enhanced administrative services, including capture of biometrics, all delivered in accordance with strict performance benchmarks and privacy requirements.

    IOM’s Immigration and Border Management Division’s ongoing work in improving migration management includes developing Facilitated Migration Service (FMS) solutions for governments and migrants worldwide. Within the scope of this work, IOM already provides tailored VAC services. IOM operated VACs handle all of the time-consuming administrative tasks of the visa application process and work to ensure that only properly completed visa applications are submitted. Such outsourcing partnerships result in reduced costs and workloads for member states’ immigration offices and faster visa processing times and improved service standards for visa applicants. Perhaps most importantly, such partnerships enable immigration officers to make informed decisions based on complete information, while focusing on their core function; making visa decisions.

    Core Functions / Responsibilities:

    Under the supervision of the Project Officer – Global Visa Application Centre Programme and in accordance with the overall direction of the Global VAC Programme Manager, the intern will focus on supporting the team by helping with administrative tasks in the office.
