Hi everyone, I am a Canadian Citizen and my fiance is a Filipino Citizen. We want him to visit Canada just for a vacation and also, to have a civil wedding here. He has no intentions of staying after as we just want a civil wedding so that the process for our Church wedding in the Philippines next year will be easier. Obtaining a marriage license in the Philippines requires me to be there in person while applying and it also takes 10 business days to process (not including the day of the application and the day after the process to pick up). So basically, I have to be there 3 weeks ahead just to get a marriage license. I do not have that luxury to go that long of a vacation hence, we thought of getting married here so we don't have to get a marriage license back in the Philippines. How should we go about his application so that his Visitor Visa will not be easily rejected? If I write a letter of invitation, would that just hurt his application? Your thoughts and suggestions will be greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance.
