Canada Spouse Visa

The process of spousal sponsorship for foreign nationals seeking to relocate to Canada, whether through a domestic or overseas application at a Canadian embassy or consulate, involves navigating a highly intricate legal process. The spouse, common-law partner, or conjugal partner intending to immigrate to Canada must be sponsored by a Canadian citizen or permanent resident who must also submit a sponsorship application in support of the foreign spouse.

Canadian Spouse Visa

With the spousal sponsorship application, you can finally say "I do" to Canada. Once approved, your significant other will be granted permanent residency in Canada, allowing you to begin planning your future together. If your partner is residing abroad during the application process, they will receive a Canada Spouse Visa (Confirmation of Permanent Residence), serving as their golden ticket to Canada. Just remember to pack warm clothing, as winter awaits.

Sponsoring a Spouse While Living Outside Canada

If you are a Canadian permanent resident residing abroad, you are unable to bring your partner to Canada. Only permanent residents living in Canada can sponsor a spouse. However, if you are a Canadian citizen traveling the world, you are in a favorable position. You can still sponsor your partner, with the condition that you commit to making Canada your new home once your partner attains residency.

Working in Canada While Spousal Sponsorship Application is Pending

Interested in working in Canada while awaiting the approval of your spousal sponsorship application? Good news! You can apply for an Open Work Permit concurrently with your immigration application, either through the application process or online. This means you can legally work in Canada while your application is under review. It's important to manage your finances responsibly and avoid spending money you haven't yet received. Open Work Permit approvals are generally common, offering one of the advantages of applying for spousal sponsorship from within Canada. Your dream of residing in Canada is within reach, so prepare to roll up your sleeves and embark on this journey.

Partner Leaving Canada While Permanent Residence Application is Pending

Leaving Canada while your spouse's permanent residence application is pending is a decision with potential consequences. There is no guarantee of re-entry if you depart while the application is still under consideration. However, if your application is approved, you will enjoy the privileges of Canadian residency. It's crucial to carefully weigh the pros and cons before making a decision and prepare for the uncertainties that may arise during the immigration process.
