    n most certainly apply from within canada. You would have to show:
    Proof of funds
    Wife’s enrolment letter
    Marriage certificate
    Wife’s study permit
    Husbands visitor visa
    You will need to fill out IMM5710 form.

    I'm in the process of applying for BOWP and SOWP for my wife (she can't apply for BOWP as she is my dependent)
    Outside of the required documents, what documents should I include in my LOE to strengthen my BOWP and my wife's SOWP application?

  9. Hello,

    My spouse got study visa and she will travel to Canada by mid of August. I would like to accompany her. But I am in confusion whether to apply for a visit visa and then inland SOWP or should I apply for SOWP. My main concern is I have to sit at home doing nothing in Canada until I get my SOWP and start working. Can experts advise me here?
  10. Hello, can someone tell me about the current timeline of SOWP india. I applied for my wife, she is in India.


    Also is there any way I can check the status of application from my end as I applied with the agent and he said not to link the application with gckey. He already linked it, is there any way I can see the updates.

    My wife had given upfront medical and its been passed. Also she got biometrics request next day she applied and that is also passed. Is it a POSITIVE SIGN for her application.

    Thank you

  14. Hi guys.

    Really in need of help here. I am currently working in Canada under PGWP and want to apply for SOWP this November (coz getting married in November). I went through all the forums and websites to get a checklist of documents. I have some doubts/questions in some of the particular documents that we need to submit.

    My document (sponsor) :
    1) Job reference letter - So I am a Software developer, working for the Government of Canada and it's a bit tough to get any written employment reference letter from them. And since I am not a permanent employee yet, all my records are term based. Like my current term ends on April 2020 and it will be renewed again after that. So the problem is, there is no document or whatsoever that mentions that my term will get extended after April 2020 and I cannot make my employer give that in written right now. So in this case, what kind of letter should I submit, which will prove my NOC as well not lead to any rejection coz of this term thing?

    2) Proof of funds - I see different numbers in different forums and website. What is an ideal amount? Like 5-6k CAD in my account and 10-12k CAD in my spouse's account back in India, is it fine enough?

    Thanks in advance. Stuck in a very odd situation here..
  15. Yes it is positive
