Hi All,

I have completed my soft landing recently via road. My spouse has multiple entry visit visa. I mentioned that family is non accompanying in PR application and said i will apply for them later. Now we returned back to USA. My Kids are US and Canadian citizens.
My situation is
* i'm planning to move to Canada permanently in December along with my Car(to be exported at the same time) and family
Due to the export of my car it is obvious i'm moving permanently to Canada and will the Canadian officials deny entry for my spouse or question me/her entry because she has visit visa only?

Since she has Visitor visa (for Canada), she is not allowed to stay in Canada for longer than 6 months. The spousal sponsorship process can take longer than that. She will also not be able to return to the US on a dependent (I guess H4) Visa, because you as a principal will not be in the US. After 6 months she will need to return to her home country and wait for the spousal sponsorship application to be approved.

It is quite possible that she would be refused entry, as it is obvious that she is essentially moving to Canada with you, or she may just be allowed entry. No one here can say what will happen.

She can stay longer than 6 months and doesn't need to leave. They can either apply inland with an OWP or she can simply extend her visitor status.
