Canadian Groups of 5 Sponsorship Programme: Attestation by UNHCR

Tuesday / 06 April 2021

UNHCR Malaysia has been receiving requests for proof of refugee status in relation to the Canadian Groups of 5 sponsorship programme. Kindly note that our Office does not issue any such letters of attestation. Instead, a system has been set up between the Canadian Government and UNHCR since January 2020, where the Canadian Government would verify with UNHCR the refugee status of those individuals who have such applications in progress.

We as such advise those individuals who are interested in accessing the programme to continue with the application process by attaching a copy of their UNHCR document to the application.
