Hello Experts,
Recently we applied TRV for my mother-in-law where we have sent an invitation letter with our bank statement and my payslips. My wife recently left the job due to pregnancy, so she is unemployed.
For my mother-in-law situations are:
  1. She is a homemaker and my father-in-law is a retired person.
  2. My father-in-law will not accompany her due to his health problem.
  3. Mother-in-law doesn't have any travel history.
  4. They have enough fund in their bank (more than 16000 CAD) but recently they have deposited a large amount of cash (less than a month) in their account. My father-in-law provided a letter that she can use that money for her travel purpose.
  5. Both of us are a permanent resident of Canada.
  6. We have uploaded a dummy ticket to support her tentative travel plan but didn't give a full itinerary about how she will spend one month in Canda. Just mentioned in the invitation letter, we will take her to different places(name of few places) in Canada.

Now today we have received a refusal letter due to following reasons:

  • I am not satisfied that you will leave Canada at the end of your stay as a temporary resident, as stipulated in paragraph 179(b) of the IRPR, based on the purpose of your visit.
  • I am not satisfied that you will leave Canada at the end of your stay as a temporary resident, as stipulated in paragraph 179(b) of the IRPR, based on your personal assets and financial status.
Please advise what is the reason for this refusal and how we can make her case strong for the above situation.

Thanks

what did you say as your purpose of visit? Maybe they thought she was coming to help care for your wife during pregnancy.
a recent large deposit of cash into an account can be suspicious.

We have mentioned that she will enjoy snowy mountains, Christmas and new year in Canada. We didn't mention that my wife is pregnant because that might raise an issue. I am wondering how we can show her strong financial assets in India? Do you think including property, explanation of large cash deposit, also strong family ties in India (even though my father in law is strong ties I think)? Maybe your input can help us to make her case strong especially filling up those loopholes !

your father is a strong tie with him staying back that helps. is the property in her name or her husbands name? Also there are snowy mountains in India, has she ever gone there? or why not snowy mountains somewhere closer? Think her real purpose is to visit family over the holidays.

What is your status in Canada? If you are PR or citizen have you looked at super visa? It might help as some of the financial burden is put on you and your family. Basically im assuming your mother has never worked a day in her life (I know housewife is lots of work) but I mean formally, and also has never left India for any sort of trip. Those are my assumptions.

For a supervisa the purpose is simple in that it is to visit the child, and the for financial status it is you that would have to show the minimum income requirement.

Thanks for the advice. As I have mentioned both of us are a permanent resident in Canada with a stable job. "Snowy mountain" :) seems like the funny word we have used but during winter in Canada what else people will do :(. She is co-owner of the property maybe we need to attach that.

I am wondering can I apply for a super visa for my Mother-In-Law.?

yes your wife can apply for your mother in law and you can show your income as well and co sign for it. You can show your combined income.
you might want to check to see if you meet minimum income requirement. you would need at least one tax return that shows that. So if you have one child, you will need to meet income of 4, (you, wife, child, mother in law) add one for each extra person for example if you have a super visa for your parents you need to include them.
if you qualify financially and are able to pay for her medical insurance then I would go the supervisa route. Plus she can stay longer on her visit on supervisa.

Thanks, I will explore that option but thought TRV will be faster to get.

Did you only land in 2019? Did you live in Canada before that? If you only moved in 2019 it is u likely you have an NOA to use for a supervisa. Wold recommend ordering CAIPS.
