Hi there! I'm a recent member of this forum. I found this by researching on what to do for spousal visa application. Right now I'm filling and gathering documents for our application but I have a question regarding the education and work history. Do I have to submit every certification / diploma I received for each information I wrote? Thank you so much!

Hi, if your country specific requirements don’t state that you should submit those documents in support of your application, then you don’t have to. Just follow the document checklist and your country specific requirements.

  3. We started processing xxxxx application on November 1, 2016.
  4. Medical results have been received.
  5. We sent xxxxxx a letter on January 17, 2018. Please consider delays in mail delivery before contacting us. (that was for the interview)
  6. We sent xxxxxxx correspondence on April 5, 2018 about the decision on their application.
Guys please share your thoughts if this is a good thing... Medical was expired though.

Dear all,

Nice to join this forum. I am finalizing my outland application before submission, can anyone please confirm if my understanding is correct for my queries, thank you so much. :)

Background: I am Canadian citizen and want to sponsor my husband, we got a kid who already got certificate of citizenship. We live outside Canada now and decide to move back next year.

My queries:

1. IMM 0008 Personal details Q3 - How many family members, including you, are in this application? I should put 1, just my husband?

2. IMM 0008 - Add Dependent Section, I don’t need to input myself (sponsor) and our son as we both are Canadian citizens?

3. IMM 5532 Part A Q1 - monthly gross income, I should convert this to CAD from local currency?

Thanks again!

I'm originally from the USA. My wife who is a Canadian citizen sponsored me via Inland Spousal Sponsorship. I recently received my work permit. Can i leave Canada now and go back to US to visit or must stay here until i receive my PR? And will leaving Canada effect my application process?

Short trips are generally fine pending you meet the admissibility requirements to return to Canada. However, if you are denied for any reason your application will be denied. Long trips are not acceptable on an inland application.

How long did you have to wait for your work permit?

Hi, this was likely asked before by someone so I apologize in advance but can anyone confirm if my fiancee can come to Canada as a tourist while awaiting our sponsorship application to be processed? (application would be made in Canadian embassy in Europe). I'm a Canadian citizen, she's in Europe (EU country with no visa requirement)
I imagine that is allowed, just wondering if it might not jeopardize her application in any way? just trying to minimize the time we spend apart :(
I believe there's no Fiance' visa in Canada, unlike the US.
We had the same problem, but you guys are blessed because she can still come to you for a visit anytime.
anyhow, the only way for you to sponsor her is as spousal visa, that means you have to get married first and do inland or outland processing.
Inland if she is in Canada already and have enough time to process until the application gets approved (could be 12 months).
Outland is if you will indicate that she's in Europe. If you choose this, she can still go in and out of Canada since Visit Visa is not needed for her, but make sure that she's outside Canada when the Decision is made so that she can enter Canada with her PR.

Just sharing you the process from experience.

I think you are correct, but let see what others think. Good luck with your application!
