i am new immigrant, landed here in canada two weeks before, my husband sponsored me. i want to sponsor my parents and my sister who is under 18 years, how can i do that? what would be the short/long term strategy for the process?
Thank you folks for your inputs
I did read up on Super Visa requirements for parents which was very helpful indeed.
I was, however, wondering if I could act as a sponsor for my sister. According to CIC website:
"You can sponsor:
- brothers or sisters, nephews or nieces, granddaughters or grandsons who are orphaned, under 18 years of age and not married or in a common-law relationship
- another relative of any age or relationship but only under specific conditions (see Note below)
- accompanying relatives of the above (for example, spouse, partner and dependent children)."
it seems I do at least meet the eligibility criteria for sponsoring my sister who is 15 right now? Of course a minimum income threshold is required and I realize that I do have to work on that
