Inland Spousal Sponsorship - December 2018

Discussion in 'Family Class Sponsorship' started by haroonahmedalvi, Dec 6, 2018.

  1. Good luck for tomorrow!.. and congratulation!.. no update yet here!.
  2. And I have my landing scheduled for Sept 30. I am a Dec 13 applicant. Good luck to people atill
  3. As we hadn't seen any status update since mid May, we called the CIC and spoke to an officer earlier this week. The officer informed us that the background check was completed (not sure when exactly) and criminality check was in progress.

    Yesterday, we received Eligibility Passed emails and today, I see a DM on the sponsor side (ECAS). Hopefully we're close to the finish line. :)
  4. Congrats! Could you please tell me what is the next update you received after the "DM on the sponsor side" and how long did take to get that update?

  5. Hello Everyone,

    I just wanted to thank everyone who helped us through our PR process or as I like to call it PR Nightmare. LOL :p

    All your feedback, positive vibes, and conversions helped us through some rough times. I am so happy that my spouse is now PR holder and years to come will become a Canadian Citizen.

    Had our landing interview today it was super easy and the officer was very nice, she kept making jokes and was very funny and pleasant.

    They asked us for :

    Both passports
    Driver license ( to show same address)
    Confirmed our home address so they can send PR card.
    PR card pictures
    Landing interview letter

    She asked my spouse these following questions:

    Are you working?
    When was the last time you entered Canada?
    Have you been convicted of crime in Canada or anywhere in the world?

    And that was it. She said congratulations. We than walked over to the Service Canada in the same building and updated our SIN number to reflect as a PR holder SIN.

    PR Card: Waiting

    For those who followed our story it was pretty crazy. CBSA discovered my spouse was out of status and overstayed in Canada. And than the exclusion order and CBSA seized documents it has been a crazy few months. CBSA didn't make it easy for us. However because we submitted PRRA and than the PRRA officer called our immigration officer we got approved in principle within 3 months:) But with gods grace we where able to get through the process.

    Again thank you to everyone who reached out to us!! <3
  6. Congratulations!happy for you guys!
