Hello,

I am a Canadian citizen married to a girl living the united states as a student. We
got married last summer in Ottawa, Ontario. I am in the process of filling a
sponsorship application. To my knowledge the process might take up to a year. My
question is, can my wife come to Canada to live with me while her application is
still in process. If so, what will be her status. Will she able to study?

Your help is very appreciated.

Sincerely.

Hi:

If your wife is permitted entry into Canada as a visitor, you can then apply to
sponsor your wife within Canada. Your wife will be entitled to remain in Canada while
her spousal sponsorship application is processing in Canada.

If you file your sponsorship application outside of Canada, your wife may be denied
entry into Canada. Individuals entering Canada as visitors have the onus of
satisfying the immigration officer that they intend on entering Canada temporarily.
This is difficult to do when your wife has an application for Canadian permanent
residency processing.

related question.....

My fiance is sponsoring me. We plan on getting married next spring. We have applyed
as "fiance" sponsorship. Will I need to reapply after the marriage? Also, I was
hoping to have status by the time of the wedding, but things are apparently going to
take a lot longer than I had expected. We still have yet to recieve sponsorship
approval from Missisauga (the request to sponsor was sent late August). So, the
confusing part is: Will I be able to go to Toronto on a visitor visa after marriage
and switch to becoming sponsored in Canada midway through the process? (That is, if
the application hasn't gone through yet) Thanks!

No, you won't need to re-apply after getting married, just notify visa post and
include marriage certificate. If it will be received by visa post before IMM 1000 is
issued then it should be issued without conditions. As a fiancée you will have a
condition in your visa requiring you to marry your sponsor within 90 days from
landing in Canada, so if you marry your sponsor before visa is issued then there is
no need for such condition.

As for going to Canada on visitor visa - it is possible, although not easy as your PR
application will be pending and your intentions will be to remain permanently in
Canada, not just visit. But there are some legal ways to achieve what you hope for.
