Hi, I am planning to for the spousal sponsorship in-Canada class. Few questions: 1. Should I do the medical tests before submitting my application or after? Also earlier i thought i wud apply from outside canada so i had done medical testing in my own country...can I use that same proof or do I need to get it done in Canada as the forms r a lil different for in-Canada and outside-Canada class. 2. Nyone here has gone through this process of applying from within Canada.... I got a response saying process takes 12-15 months and to issue work permit it takes 9 months.... anyone has feedback on this. 3. What exactly is 1st stage approval and do i need to mention it in my application, where exactly? urgently waiting for ur reply..... Thanks.
