  4. Hi Everyone,

    Just submitted our application today (August 15) for an inland spousal sponsorship and OWP for my American husband. We are applying from Halifax.

    We just had our first baby here in Canada in June and are so excited to get this process rolling after years of talking about it!

    Looking forward to following the process with you all and supporting one another - best of luck!

  6. Hello,

    I recently applied with my common-law partner for inland PR - but did not include open work permit ,he is currently on a working holiday visa which we may extend later on. I am the sponsor (Canadian) of my partner who is British.

    I heard that inland applications can take longer than outland to get the acknowledgement email which I guess is the first step. I think that's the worst part waiting to hear whether its starting to be processed or not. I also heard on Reddit that it could take up to 2-3 months to find out if there is anything wrong or missing in the application.

    Also applied from Vancouver ,BC.

  8. Hi All,
    I am planning to submit the spouse sponsorship by last week of this month.

    I am looking for some help. I have gathered all the documents for spouse sponsorship and I am clear on that part. However, I am totally lost w.r.t OWP, in the checklist, it has various if conditions. But I could not find anything stating if you are spouse of a PR holder. It would be really helpful if someone who have done this already can help me in this.

    Also I would like to know, the additional documents required and the order of documents. I mean where I have to place my OWP application? In a separate envelope or after the Sponsorship checklist.

    All the best to everyone!!

  9. I applied Aug1, very nervous, very excited! Good luck to everyone.

    For those who have not updated the "Inland August" tab with their info, would be very nice to fill it in if possible.


    Cannot answer first part, but regarding order:

  10. Hi @Manny777 can you specify which questions you're having issues with?

    You mention the checklist. The only question pertaining to the OWP on the checklist (IMM5533) is question 5. As you're inland you need to select the first checkbox which states 'I am currently living in Canada with my sponsor, and I am applying under the spouse or common law partner in Canada class' and ensure you check the box underneath the mailing address which states 'I am also including an Open Work Permit application'. As you're inland the two checkboxes underneath this (living outside of Canada and Inland Family class but not spousal) do not apply to you.

    Is this the part you were referring to or are you having issues with the OWP form? (IMM5710) if so, which questions?

    Hope this helps!

  11. Hi everyone!! We just mailed our documents today August 20,2019. Hoping they'll receive it 2 days from now. My husband is the sponsor and we're from Calgary, Alberta.
  12. Hi,

    Sorry, if I was not clear. I have mentioned the checklist(IMM 5556 E) for OWP. I would also like to know what are the documents needed for OWP. Could someone please guide me on that.

  13. Thanks. This is really helpful.
  14. Hi! I submitted with an OWP. The only OWP app i sent IMM5710 and its barcode since i am applying inland spousal sponsorship.
  15. oh. Is OWP checklist (IMM 5556) not required? Anyone else submitted the checklist?
