Hello Inisaya,Dear all.
I just found this thread right after my visa application has been rejected.. today!
I just want to share my experience but am open to any suggestions in case I must re-apply Outland myself.
I’m an Australian and came to Canada in June 2016 to take care of my 2 sons who at the time had to register to a High School and a University in Canada. I hired an immigration lawyer to get a spousal sponsorship visa in December 2016. My husband, who is Canadian and is my sponsor, lives in Thailand on his own. I got my work permit which expires in March 2019.
After all the efforts and time and money spent for this visa, I got a refusal and I am really dissapointed and frustrated. The reason for the visa rejected by CIC is because we failed to proof them our cohabitation. My husband has visited us 2 times since I moved to Canada to celebrate Christmas and New Year. We have sent all the requirements CIC asked for even sent them a letter from my husband stating that he has to live in Thailand to make money so he can support the kids and myself in Canada. Also he stated that he is coming back to live in Canada sometimes in the future. The lawyer said even though he lives in Thailand it should have not been an issue to apply Outland while I am already in Canada. I don’t know what cohabitate means to CIC but according to my lawyer my husband and I have showed it to him, so he was positive that CIC would accept the application. FYI, we have been married for 25 years. Unfortunately this leaves all of us including the lawyer a question on why it is rejected.
I would love to hear any positive thoughts and hopefully suggestions.
Thanks for reading.
It is really frustrating if any one applies and refuses. I can suggest you two things-------
First one you can reapply.
Second you can apply for express entry. You have job experience and I think it will easy for you get visa.
In the immigration interview process nobody can say what will happen next.
The visa office refuses you because you cannot proof your cohabitation.
If you reapply for the same visa I can give you some suggestion----------------
1. Communication proof as much you have like 1000 or 2000.
2. Money transfer receipt.
3. Picture of every occasion.
4. If you husband live in Thailand in this situation you must go to Thailand and you should time spend with your husband.
5. You reapply and the visa office gives you an interview date again. In this situation take your husband with you in the interview day. It will strong your case.
6. The most important thing you should prepare yourself how you will represent yourself in the interview day.
I know you are married 25years but if you are not confident and comfortable in the interview day that can be reason of your refuse. Today I share the US visa interview and I noticed that if you are not confident and not enough strong in your question answer they will try to find something wrong with you.
My only one advice tries to prepare yourself for your next interview. Never think all over. I know you can do better your previous experience.
