Hello,

I am a dentist from India. I want to pursue masters in Dentistry in Canada. I will be applying for a student visa. My question is - Can I bring my husband and 2 year old son on a dependent visa to Canada? Is that possible? What are my options? Request you to please guide me.

Thanks in advance.

As you apply for your own student visa, you can apply for your husbands open work permit to accompany you and a TRV for your child.  In that case, the visa officers are encouraged to see you as a family unit and either approve or refuse you all.

Another option is that you first apply for a student visa which you may get based on small risk of overstay since you are leaving your husband and child behind and after you get your student visa, your husband and child can apply but in that case, it is possible that the husband and child are refused.

Hi,

I am in Canada now for two months. I initially wanted to apply with my family but then everyone said no as it is risky. I applied alone and got through without any problems. I have my husband and two kids back home. I am now wondering if I did the right thing as now it is a concern for me if they will get the visa applying on their own. I was thinking of applying for OWP and TRV for the kids but then you hear people say no, apply for visitor's visa and then when they get here apply for OWP, I dont know what to do. We have limited funds, so I am thinking that he will be here not working for 2-3 months and then there is a chance that he might not get the work permit and have to go back home to no job. I am glad I got my study permit because I really wanted to go to school but then I missing my family alot. Follow your gut feeling, pray about it God will help you to make the right decision. Any advice from anyone.

Hi:

  I am from Pakistan and I received my admission in McGill in MMM program. I got a visa with my wife and two children. I can't apply my self because in visa applicatio  there is alot of thing which I don't know, even I have so many visit visa but in this case I hired a consultant.

He is very young guy, before I met him I think he will waste my time but after discussion he is Canadian citizen and doing consultancy since last 12 years.

I just find him because his office on main road in Islamabad, he never advertize in news paper etc.

I think you should contact him his email address is almascs @ gmail.com.

Be aware he is very stick guy because according to him master student should ask master level question not high school level which I agree as well.
