Spouse and Dependent Visa

Studying or working abroad temporarily should not be just about you. By applying for Spouse and Dependent Visas, you can take your spouse or a dependent family member with you to a foreign country where you hold a temporary resident visa for work or study.

Spouse Visas

It is obvious that we miss our loved ones and especially if they are not with us. So in order to help you out Canadian government has come up with new changes wherein residents of Canada or citizens of Canada can sponsor their spouse from other nation to migrate to Canada. The applicant and their spouse must be married and show the genuine intention to live together in Canada.

Family Class program by the Canadian Government allows Canadian citizens and PR holders to sponsor dependent children, parents, and grandparents and spouse. Through government policies, Canada strongly supports keeping families together. Thus, processing Family Class applications is a priority for Canadian Visa Offices.

Basic Requirements:

  1. Sponsor is a Canadian Citizen or permanent resident of Canada,
  2. Sponsor is at least 18 years of age,
  3. The applicant is over the age of 16, and
  4. Sponsor must sign a 3-year sponsorship agreement with the Canadian Government to financially support the spouse or partner.

A Canadian citizen or permanent residence of Canada is eligible to sponsor their spouse and any dependent children for permanent residency in Canada and it can be made for those who are living inside or outside Canada.

A sponsor must provide details about the income assuring the government to provide financial support to their spouse for 3 years and any dependent children for 10 years.

If you are international students, then your loved ones can be nearby as you pursue your Canadian education. All you need is to contact your international student adviser and regulated Canadian immigration consultants out there. They will help you out by providing information about the different requirements and visa processing time. Even your spouse can apply for a work permit before or after they arrive in Canada. With this work permit, your spouse will be allowed to work in Canada while you are studying for the same period of your study permit. Most importantly, your spouse does not need a job offer letter or labour market opinion from Service Canada to apply for work permit. Most of the cases, Canadian visa offices abroad do process spouse work permit applications at the same time as study permit applications. Relocating in Canada under such program can help the applicant to seek and undertake employment without any restrictions. In addition, after the minimum residency of 3 years, you can apply for PR and then for Canada Citizenship.

If you are a Canadian citizen, you can sponsor your spouse without being in Canada. However, for this you need to prove that you are planning to move to Canada as soon as your spouse is approved for permanent residency. Your job offer letter, university offer letter etc. can be provided as proof. In addition, if you are a PR, then you should be in the country in order to sponsor your spouse.

The process is long, but the benefits are life-long. Living in Canada with family can be an enriching experience. Moreover, given the current requirements of the Canadian government, this is the right time to file for a spouse visa. Visit our office or call our toll free number to set up a free appointment with one of our international counsellors. We will provide you with a systematic guidance and help you successfully acquire visa for your spouse to be with you in Canada.

Going through the immigration process was a stressful work and at the same time needs lots of concentration. It solely depends upon the documentation, IELTS score, visa processing etc. but without an expert help, it will not be possible. For me, Winny gave expert advice throughout the counselling sessions even when I was disappointed following the draw points. The positive approach and supportive team of Winny have made me secure the Canada PR visa. All thanks to Winny…

Happy Client

All I can say is thank you for processing my visa so easily. Winny team knew exactly how to process my file and with very reasonable fees my whole visa processing went smoothly. Though at times, I used to get irritated and also ask so many silly questions but your instant response and maintaining the patience level has worked for me. Today I am a Canadian permanent resident along with my family.

Happy Client

I had a very bad experience with my previous immigration consultant that I almost lost hope of immigrating to Canada with my family. It was one of my friend who is currently in Canada recommended to me about Winny. Initially, I was hesitant to hire a consultant again following my previous experience but after approaching Winny a ray of hope emerged. Finally, I am moving to Canada with my family.
