There's a group in Facebook for spouses applying for sponsorship. Yes, there are apps that exceeded 12 months due to COVID-19.

Hello! Once done with documents, how and where do we submit it? Manila Visa Office of Canada? And how do we pay for application fees?

Have you read the general application guide and the document checklists? All the info is in there, I strongly suggest you carefully read through those 2 documents to ensure you app is complete before submitting it.

Apps are sent to Sydney NS in Canada, it is best to use a courier company so you can track and have proof of delivery, I suggest Fedex when sending it from PH, app fees are paid on-line.

Good luck.

No one knows. Our case is not complicated at all. No previous marriage, no kids, have been together for years. But our application is taking longer than most in our batch (december 2019). With the pandemic, there's been no update since February.

I'm friends with a couple whose case were not complicated. They were able to get it 8 months. Still early than expected 12 months waiting at that time. Do you think the visa office handling it affects the processing of the applications?

Most likely. Specially during this pandemic, if the country the VO is in renders them unable to work at full capacity, then that's a huge effect on the application processing. And even without Covid-19, there are VOs that were deemed slow.
