Thank You for your update.

As I mentioned we applied for my PR in DEC, 2014 and received SA in March, 2015 since the status is AR/MR. The wait and the distance is frustrating. My husband is a canadian citizen and currently is in Canada. Can I apply for a work permit through my company here in India while my spousal PR is in process? Will it affect my PR? In case my work permit gets rejected will it have any affect on my PR?

If not, can I apply for visit visa and travel to Canada and wait there with him for my PR? Are there any possibilities that my visit visa would get rejected since my PR is in process? will the rejection affect my PR?

Please advice if the above options are possible.

Thanks in advance.
Do you work for a Canadian company in India or do you mean your current Indian company and apply for a work permit. Though not impossible its extremely hard to get a work permit for a foreign worker and even harder from outside of Canada. You and the company will have to apply for the LMIA which basically states there is no Canadian to do the job thus a foreigner is getting hired and there are costs involved for the company.

The other option is to apply for the visit visa and no a rejection after you have applied for PR will not have an impact on the application. The possibility of getting the visit visa depends on the proof you show that you will come back after the visit and your ties to India; as long as you can show that the chances of getting the visit visa is high. Since you are working which is a huge boost in ties to India and if you can show assets etc you will definitely get the visa.

I agree with Draxz. You can apply for visitor visa and it will have no bearing on your PR application.

See the following thread about how to apply for visitor visa. It also involves a lot of paper work.
http://www.canadavisa.com/canada-immigration-discussion-board/visitor-visa-grantedwife-of-pr-t273759.15.html

Hey and we all are suffering. But you need to find a way to be in a long distance relationship with spouse. It is difficult but not impossible. Just imagine yourself that if you hadn't married a canadian citizen, what would you be doing with your life. Just keep on doing that.

And I agree with rambopg. Keep you self busy and occupied; try not to "figure out" and obsess over the process simple because we don't have any control and there is literally nothing you can do to speed up the process - once you accept that you will be more calmer and the wait will pass by quickly

It's really upsetting the way NDVO works , even if they have doubts or whatsoever on fraud cases found in vancouver which doubles up their work . It does not give them right to process out of line and give no answers to previous month or year applicants. Tho personally i feel who so ever is getting visa or dm or ip is great cz their woes ended.

but where do people like us go ..april and may and further months are still waiting and ndvo is showing to their office in canada look we are so efficient we are working on october files !!! who can bell the cat and tell you are just doing hogwash nothing else ...cry ..scream...have pain in your heart that 2 years of your life got wasted cz you married a canadian citizen ...get frustrated..depressed ...its all ndvo's will and mercy .

:'(
And the worse of the situation is conservative government representative going on and on radio letting people know the awesome work they have done for Family class immigration. I couldn't stop but call them and ask the representative, what defines the family? taking damn 2 years just to unite with your family ....is the good work that their govt has done.

They think people are fool and can be played around!

We should blame those people who take advantage of the immigration sponsorship, they sponsor "love ones" then ditch their love ones when they feel most vulnerable. Every year the processing of legitimate spouses takes longer year after year. Canadian immigration Canada is always evolving and bring new laws to the table to ensure we don't get illegal people into this peaceful and loving country. It wasn't too long ago in the 1980/1990s it took only 3 months for sponsorships but look it now....

" It wasn't too long ago in the 1980/1990s it took only 3 months for sponsorships but look it now." Not just in 1990's, till 2010 the processing time was 3 months. Even if they are trying to approve genuine cases, by no means they have right to keep partners separated this long. If they were going to take this long, what was the point to bring in the 2 year conditional PR? Wasn't it for the people to protect them from Fraud? They have made a joke of people's life

Conservatives screwed us big time.

They just got an excuse to become lazy, it is not like they take that much to work on your file. They don't
even touch your file for first 9 months. Actual time spent on background check must not have changed at all.
Life is too short to wait few years just to be with your loved ones.

I am sorry to say this but NDVO is not keeping you apart from your spouses. They have no right to keep you apart. We ourselves are. It is my decision or your spouses decision that their career or job is more important than being with the spouse. The Canadian spouse might as well take un-paid leave from his/her career and spend some time in India.

Seriously, Am I really reading this right? What amazes me the most is you are thinking it is possible for Canadian spouses to take leave and move back to India. Ok, I will leave my job and sell off my house that I bought after the hardwork? Can you or NDVO guarantee that when my spouse gets the visa and we finally decide to move back to Canada, I will get the well payed job and my house back that I had before? That me and my spouse will not be struggling to meet the ends and I will find the good job easily again ? Do you really think it is that simple?

The only choice is not to marry in India or Canada either way, but now that we are married who gave NDVO right to separate us and take 2 precious years of my marriage life.

HEY ... iam in the same situation like you..its truly pathetic n disgusting the way they make us wait...even praying dsnt seem to work...btw who told you remeds are valid only for 3 months ?? i thot its 1 year
Ok, so my husband went to one of the best hospital in Mumbai called "lilavati" I don't know if anyone of you heard about that hospital and there the doc told him that re-meds are only valid of 3 months. Usually you don't get another re-meds. As you guys know that when u go for interview only there they ask you for re-meds if your meds aren't valid or if u don't go for an interview they request for a re-med through email. I don't know now if that doctor is right about the validity or the info here is correct :-\

Medical is valid for 1 yr, not 3 months. Are you sure your medical is expiring in 3 months ?? Actually if this is true, then its good for you. Then NDVO has to finish your file within 2 months, so that you have 1 month to plan trip.
"Just spouses sponsoring each other" ???? i did not understand that. We also miss and need our spouses regardless we have kid or not. But i do understand your position and pain you are going through.

Anyways, NDVO is working relatively fast now and clearly all the backlog. When MP say 5 months, they are just guessing. They can not give you exact date, unless you have interview. So do you have interview ?? If not, then your mp was just saying stuff. you are almost at the end of the process, so please hang tight and you will get some updates soon.
Oh, I wanted u guys to suffer less thinking that "our missing spouse suffering" is nothing compared to a 7 years old child missing her daddy. My suffering is topped with my child's suffering. Please don't take that statement as in any negative term, it was meant for you guys to feel better and thank god that u aren't in my position. That's all.
I don't know if I have an interview or not as all I know is that my file is in process and my husband go re-meds. The doc in Mumbai told him that re-meds are only valid for 3 months and we don't get another request for re-meds. So I am confused here as you guys are telling me re-meds are valid for a year and the doc is saying for 3 months.
MP said that if my file isn't done by Jan which covers the 16 months and my husband isn't here in Canada then they are going to put pressure on NDVO to process the file faster.

I do agree to the fact that we took the decision of being apart to have a better career and better life with our spouse and our kids. During the process we can take some time off from work and meet our spouse. Of course no one can keep spouses apart unless they decide to be apart.
The thing that screws us up is the fact that a lot of the files get processed and there are spouses who has arrived in Canada in 4-6 months but most of our files are just stuck. Hence, we say being separated and families apart. I guess each of us should just shut everything down and count our 16 months as mentioned online and wait and be patient or if u can't take the separation you meet up for sometime or move back while the process is going on. Just hang in there everyone. I know it's hard and trust me I know it's very difficult but if u really want this you just have to patient.

Doctors office dont know anything about CIC rules.
Look up the CIC website. validity is 1 years+1 month(grace period) from day you do medical.
When my wife did 2nd up front medicals bangalore they were telling its against rules. I asked them to show it on CIC website. In the end they did the medicals.

Fiza is right. We cannot just leave everything behind that we earned after hard work.

I believe there two major factors that force person to stay away from loved one:

1. Career :

Regarding un-paid leave, people who works in retail or food or general labor industry, has very minimum impact on losing job. You quit one, then find other next day. it does not affect your career. I have friend who drives truck. he goes to India on vacation for 2-3 months every year and he is not even married because, again, you drive truck today with one person, next day with other. My other friend got married in India and she used to work in grocery store. she quit job and went to India for 4 months. when she came back, she got job in gas station.
I am Mechanical Engineer. The maximum leave i can get is 2 or 3 weeks. If you want more, you have to give very strong season (separation from loved one does not count). if i quite my job and live in India for 4-5 months, i have huge gap in my resume. it is going to take me long time to get new job when i come back. it will be huge financial and career blow , which is something i can't afford. This brings me to second factor:

2. Money :

Some has it, some don't, some has just enough, some has shit lot of it.
i would say mostly immigrants families make their kids get married in India. Some of those immigrant families are already well settled here in Canada and has tons or more than enough money. You will never see applicants belonging to that kind families come here and cry about how they are separated from there loved one. They can take as many "un-paid" vacation they want. Going away on long vacation make no financial impact on family. Then there are other immigrant families who work as team so that they can settle down in Canada. Its not like they don't money, they do, but having one person going on long vacation will have financial impact.


I think i am just stretching this too much. the main point is we all have different lives and responsibilities. if you can do something, probably i can't and vice versa. Some of us are forced to make this choice. I know i married someone in India, but that does not mean i have to mess up my whole future planning.
