Default Got it (nearly)... and question

Today I sent off my passport to the London CHC for Visa. I plan to land sometime in March 2003.

Question: How soon can I go ahead and sponsor my partner of 4 years? We definitely plan on getting married, would it be easier to wait until then?

I'd be grateful for any advise.

My Suggestion would be, if you are planning to get married soon, do that and then apply for sponsorship of your husband. That is quick and easy. Other case is you can sponsor as Common Partner, where you don't have to get married but have to live together for a year in Canada and you have to prove that to immigration by providing proof. Anyway, read the sponsorship guide. Here is the link.

Hope this helps

Hi Jim,
So it would be better for someone to first land and then get married ?
(As opposed to first getting an interview waiver, then getting
married and then landing ?)
Thanks...do appreciate all your responses.

If you have a common law partner, you should advise the CHC now that you
want to include him on your application as a dependant (the CHC will then
want to determine if he meets all health, criminal and security
requirements, and will likely review your joint financial situation to
ensure you meet the minimum financial requirements). If you don't, you will
have lots of problems. If you plan to get married before coming to Canada,
the same advice applies: don't go anywhere until you have reported the
change in your marital status to the CHC and followed through with their
instructions...

If you have not been living together, you may move to Canada, marry your
partner after your arrival and sponsor him when it suits you.
