I am in process of filing my PR under Ontario PNP but I have some questions.Currently I am working in Canada but my husband is in India. He is also nominated with me for PNP.Please answer some of my questions below
1. Which Visa office should I fill in the form for PR (Buffalo or New Delhi)
2. Since we cannot send passport by mail, how one of us(myself or my husband) going to send their passport later when requested because we both are in different countries ?
Thank you in advance ?
If you choose BUFFALO, In that case when you would be asked to submit passports, then question is how you would be able to submit your husband's passport as he won't be able to mail it from India. If he has a visa for canada then it won't be an issue. I hope you know that if you are on a Temporary Visa (Student or Work) then your spouse can apply for a visitor visa and then subsequently for a Work Permit.
Beyond that processing time of BUFFALO is more than Delhi.
In case you choose Delhi then you would have to come to India to submit your passport. Processing time of Canadian High Commission - New Delhi is less than Buffalo but the only trouble is that after submitting your passport you won't get your passport within a Month or so (Like Buffalo). In my case i submitted my passport on 15 Feb 2012 and till now i haven't got it back. Same is the experience of many other people. My friends who had applied in Buffalo, after submitting their passport they got it back within a month.
Beyond that when you would get a request for submission of passport, the deadline of submission would be around 45 days, in that case you might find your self getting expensive flight tickets and applying for vacations (at your school or work place) without even knowing when you could come back to canada.
If thats not the issue then NEW DELHI is a good option for you.
Hopefully this info helps !
