SPOUSAL Sponsorship PAKISTAN @ London Visa Office

Discussion in 'Family Class Sponsorship' started by TooCareless1, May 19, 2014.

  1. Dear friends and members,

    In order to clarify the queries and questions of all applicants who have sponsored their Pakistani Spouses living in Pakistan.
    This is thread is to clarify the misconceptions about spousal sponsorships of Pakistani applicants.
    Here are few important questions.

    Top Questions

    1) Which is my visa office Islamabad or London?
    Ans: London is now Visa office for all family and Spousal sponsorships for Pakistan since August 2013.


    website for the proof:
    http://www.cic.gc.ca/english/information/offices/missions/london.asp

    2) I am a 2012 applicant my visa office was Islamabad, where is my file now.
    Ans: Again, all old cases have been transferred to London Visa Office. So your file is now at London. So dont worry about file. send queries to LVO not Islamabad.

    3) I did not received any communication after CPC Mississauga approval where is my file?
    Ans: London Visa Office

    Islamabad is only responsible for visit and student visa.

  2. Re: Spousal sponsorship for all Pakistani applicants at London Visa Office

    How the spousal sponsorship works i.e. Steps

    London Visa Office Processing time is 11 Months


    Dear all just for the clarity i m posting the process of Family sponsorship for understanding of all of thread members.

    Phase 1: Sponsor's Approval


    1. Sponsorship application submission (AT CPC-Mississauga)

    2. First Email: application of sponsorship received by CPC-Mississauga (with in a week time or 10 days)

    3. 2nd email: Sponsorship approval and File is sent to London Visa office for further processing (with in 1 month)
    or if you are an old applicant (Islamabad Visa Office) then your file is transferred to LVO. whether you get email or not your file is in London.


    Phase 2: Visa Office Stage (Principle Applicant or Spouse)



    Steps: Eligibility Assessment (Relation is Genuine or not) > Re-Med if required > Back ground checks > PPR 1 > PPR2 > Visa Issued

    5. Eligibility Assessment: Additional documents or Interview request from LVO to assess eligibility.(between 5-8 months is my best guess) Interview will most likely held in Islamabad but interviewer will be a person from LVO not from Islamabad (Interview is only to assess whether relationship is genuine or not).

    6. background checks will be done after relationship is confirmed by Visa officer.

    Passport request is Two step process as Pakistani law does not permit sending passport out of country


    7. Passport request 1. PPR1 sending copies of the passport and pictures to LVO (30 days) (immediately send to LVO on given address)
    after receiving your copies of passport and pictures. LVO will issue Visa and COPR issued as per your passport and send it to Islamabad

    8. Passport Request 2. PPR2. Original passport and return address needs to be sent to Islamabad. (usually 30-45 days after PPR1) Send PPs through TCS visatronics

    9. Visa is being pasted on Passport. VISA along with COPR is sent to your return address.

    10. You are ready to land.........

  8. Re: Spousal sponsorship for all Pakistani applicants at London Visa Office

    I believe you are very close to Passport request. currently your husband is under security clearance. once his security clearance is completed. He will get passport request.

    you are lucky Careless1 you applied in Aug 2013 and you are got through all major stages. I applied in Mar 2013 and still haven't heard back. No medical request no nothing...
    this is really depressing
