  1. Hi Khun Canthai,
    I had a few documents translated already when I was in Thailand, ie. My daughter's birth certificate, our marriage certificate. I had to give copies of these already to the Canadian Embassy for an application for Citizenship for her. Are you suggesting that I have these copies notarized for the Sponsorship application? Does it matter if it is a Thai or Canadian notary?
    thanks.
     
  2. khun thaihubbie,
    All documents must be in English since your application is sent to Canada and Singapore for review and there are English speaking people (IO's) working there. No, it doesn't matter if it's Canadian or Thai notary, as long as it is legal it will be fine.

    p.s. where did you go for your daughter's birth certificate? my spouse needs a copy of hers and we need to go somewhere to get one! thx!
     
  3. Khun Canthai,
    When my daughter was born my husband had to arrange for her birth certificate before they would allow us to take her from the hospital. First he had to get my Canadian passport translated and then with the documents given from the hospital he went to City Hall-Birth Registration. It all went smoothly only one funny glitch they would only allow her to have one name, so no middle name for her:)! My husband's birth certificate was another story. His mother located it amongst all her papers but is completely faded, torn and disintegrating. I don't know how it would get replaced but I would assume the local Tambon-City Hall where the person was born could do it. I haven't had any problems with bureaucracy when I have dealt with small government offices in Thailand. It was quick and relatively efficient my main problems were always with the Canadian Embassy!!

  6. Hi Canthai,
    Long time I didn't join this Forum. Did you send your wife's police clearance and medical clearance with the entire package to CIC Missassauga? or did you send it in only once your Sponsorship had been approved?
    thanks
     
  7. My Case Summary: I am a PR holder and Sponsored my husband. We are both from Bangladesh. CIC Singapore office is processing our application.

    Singapore Visa Office!!! Man what can i say about them??? Sometimes i feel like cursing at them so bad for taking a year away from our lives. These people don't care if the marriage lasts or not probably they are too busy with their coffee and donuts, that they have no clue what is going through each day in our lives. They are not bothered if too much time is taken on their part, they don't care if the couple's relation is in danger or not. These people are causing stress, depression and mental trauma to our lives. I don't know why they don't get sued for such abuse caused my Canadian Immigration. Trust me thats what i am feeling right now. I don't even know if our long distance relation will last or not. Since I haven't heard from CIC Singapore I made the local MP call them only then they gave me a time that my processing will take 1 year or more. They say Canada has extra privilege for women, I think its BULL. I am a women there was no privilege for me, i have been working hard, all alone for almost 8 months, if something happens to me will the Canadian Immigration take liability?

    Hope my situation eases many other who are in this situation.

    We were nominated by New Brunswick last Dec 2010 and our application was sent to Singapore last 22nd Dec 2010. Any idea how long it will take for CIC to send us a notification that they have receive our application?
