hey all,

Am a self-employed photographer in India. My wife has gone to Canada on a student visa for this September intake (MBA program ) in New Brunswick. I will try to list out the multiple questions I have.

1. Am I eligible for an open work permit? ( that's what Canada immigration says, just want to reconfirm with you guys)

2. Which is the best & fastest way to get Openwork Permit? Online application or Paper application through VFS?

3. What is the checklist before going for an Open work permit?

4. Can I go for Pre Medical test (my city panel doctors are the worst & very slow )

5. What are the chances of me getting a dependent visa?

TIA
Sravan Venkat.

GIC statements is the minimum guaranteed amount of 10k cad which your wife would have deposited at the time of filing her Visa if she has taken loan for study then she would not have GIC and for WhatsApp chat take screenshots of past 2 or 3 months chat history and get them printed on photo paper no matter if your marriage is 5 years old or not its mandatory nowadays and invite will be sent by your wife for calling you from India it's more like a self declaration and is attested by

Part time employment documents are not mandatory as long as she has funds to support her monthly expenses but make sure your funds are clearly visible like in deposits and fd

There's a catch here. She has taken loan & had shown me as a sponsor, attaching my income, statements & assets. Can I use the same assets, income? Or should i deposit amounts in banks as assurances ?

There is no harm in showing same financials but make sure they are sound because when loan in sanctioned embassy can bank upon loan approvals in granting Visa to your wife but when it comes to you then financials should be sound so that you won't become a burden on them later on
