Default Hey Andrew......

I have a couple of questions

- I recently got married to a Canadian in Canada. We are living in the
US (I have a H1 and am a UK citizen) and I want to apply for Cdn
immigration. She doesnt have a job yet here in the US, so can she
sponsor me to come to Canada? Is that method quicker than the
Independent immigration as a skilled worker (I think I qualify easily-
82 points)

- Next question. If I decide to go the independent way, I have read
about the fast track procedure that is available at the Buffalo
office. How does that work? They say it takes 4 months. Would that be
a viable option?

Thanks for your help and have a great weekend

The page on webimmigration website you are referring to is not only outdated
(about 2+years) but also just a wishful at that time thinking, nothing more.
There is no "fast track" processing, although applications of sponsored spouses
abroad are being processed with the highest priority in every visa post. 4
months in Buffalo? Piece of marketing crap, don't trust anything even remotely
close to such statement, especially when it comes to independent category.

If your wife is a Canadian citizen then she can sponsor you while abroad and
this route at present is the fastest one. But depending from your nationality
and countries you resided in (thus time needed to conclude background/security
check) processing may take anywhere from 8 to 14+ months.

Instead of browsing through any third part websites feeding you their marketing
pitches just go to the source - Citizenship and Immigration Canada (CIC)
official website. Applications and instructions for sponsoring a spouse abroad
are here:

It would be easiest and quickest for her to sponsor you. As a Canadian
Citizen residing outside Canada she can sponsor her Spouse and/or dependant
child so she can sponsor you without having to return to Canada to do it.
However she must agree and show evidence taht she will return to Canada with
you once you get your PR visa.
In a spousal case there is no income level to meet and as long as she isnt
claiming welfare benefits they should accept her as a sponsor.
You would fill in all yoru forms, get your polcie clearances etc and send it
all to CPC Mississauga in ontario, they would hopefuly approve yoru iwfe as
a sponsor then forward your details to Buffalo, they would then send you an
acknowledgment of receipt, AOR, and then a bit later hopefuly waive any
interview requirements and send you medical forms, you do the medicals send
em in then wait for them to request yoru passport, send that in get it
affixed with a visa they send it back and you are ready to go become a PR of
Canada.
That should take 6-8 months in total and spousal cases are given priority in
processing.
I have not heard of any express type service at Buffalo that takes 4 months
for a skilled worker and normally you would be expecting to wait more like a
year or so and if they required an intevriew then add another year or so
onto it.
So spousal sponsorship is quicker and you dont have to worry about points or
income or settlement fees etc etc.

Have a look at the forms and details on www.cic.gc.ca
