I was wondering which would be a better idea, to be sponsored as a spouse or as a
fiancee. My Canadian boyfriend and I (Singaporean) are trying to figure out which
would be less complicated. I presently work in Toronto but will be going back to
Singapore for a visit. Shold we start the application process for fiancee sponsorship
from Singapore or would it be better to apply from within Canada after we get
married? Thanks for the advice.

If you really can't be without each other then you should apply from = within Canada
so you can stay together. For this route you will have to = get married. =20

If you can stand to stay apart, all visits notwithstanding, then you = could apply
from outside Canada. In this case a spousal (getting = married) or a fiancee
application will work.

With the spousal there is no need to demonstrate support and there are = no
conditions on the visa and it may move more quickly if done properly.

With the fiancee the sponsor has to provide sufficient funds for LICO = and the
condition is of course that you marry when in Canada and = sometimes these cases can
take much longer.

--=20 Good luck,

Since you are already in Canada I suggest you start and finish the processing Canada
once you are married. It should be straightforward. Singpore is quite quick but why
deal with a office half way around the world when it can be all done in Canada.
However if you want to do it as a fiancee and you are in Canada you can process the
case via Buffalo. all in all I suggest get married and do it in Canada.

If you are already here in Canada, it would probably be more expedient to get
married, then file as a spouse from within Canada. I belong to a couple of groups on
Yahoo which deal with spousal immigration. We would be glad to help if needed. See my
web page for links: http://www.julyfood.com/immigration

Good luck! Lynn Holden

and you cannot leave Canada after you file inland until you get you permanent
residency.. the reason being that when you file inland you are saying that you are
doing it because it is too much of a hardship to return to your home country and be
seperated from eachother.If you leave after applying that proves otherwise.

good luck

not completely true - i applied from inside, got my papers in september 2001 in july
i left for 3.5 weeks, to attend the wedding of my son... i did have a workpermit
though - i sent the aplication together with the rest of the papers, paid the extra
150 dollars and got the aor and the workpermit on the same day, february 2001. i had
no problems at the airport - they checked the workpermit and that was it. no further
questions or whatsoever.
