Ways of Sponsoring Wife to Canada
For most, one of the biggest joys in life is spending quality time with family. With a holiday designated specifically for family time, it is clear that Canadians take their family time seriously. However, there are still many people whose spouses are in another country; therefore, their dreams of joining the valued Canadian family experiences are on hold. But why wait? There are various ways of sponsoring that could ultimately lead to your spouse joining you in Canada, such as the inland application and the overseas application.
What is the difference between an inland and overseas Spousal application?
An inland spousal application can be filed when the spouse is in Canada. This would involve obtaining a visitor visa to be in Canada, and then applying for the inland application from within to the Canadian office. If the application for a visitor visa is denied, then the applicant cannot file an inland application and may only file an overseas spousal application which would mean that the spouse is residing outside of Canada. This would have to be sent to the visa office within the country where the spouse has lived for at least one year.
