I'm a Canadian PR holder but my wife isn't. My wife is applying for TRV and we're thinking of going to Canada together in early august for a few days (3rd to 8th august). I have a few questions to ask: 1) How much money should I 'provide my wife with' for this trip (since I'm supporting her financially) ? 2) Which of the following 3 stay options would be best for a TRV application: a) Stay with a cousin of mine (mother's brother's daughter) who is a PR holder and is employed, who can also write an invitation letter for my wife's TRV application. b) Stay with an aunt of my wife (my wife's mother's sister) who is a Canadian citizen and is a housewife, who can probably also write an invitation letter for my wife's TRV application. c) A very close friend of mine whom I have personally known for the last 14 years. He is not blood related though and is currently unemployed in Canada. d) Stay in a hotel and provide hotel booking confirmation with the TRV application. 3) Where in the online application do I attach a Cover Letter (which people on the forum are talking about) ? 4) For 'Purpose of Travel - Other', people are suggesting I make provisional flight bookings and show them, and say that I'll purchase the full ticket if TRV is issued. But aren't provisional flight bookings only held for 2-3 days ? I think they get cancelled if you don't pay for the ticket in 2-3 days. Thanks guys.
