Default Two Questions!!

Hello Guys,

In May 2002 I got a letter from the Buffalo RPC that I will have an
interview in Los Angeles in 7-9 months. I am presently in the US on a
H1 visa that expires in February, 2003. Having said that I have been
interviewing with companies in Canada and one company is interested in
making me an offer. My question is:

Can this letter of employment speed up my process in Buffalo or Los
Angeles?

The other question that I have is: As a Canadian Permanent Resident
how long would I have to wait to get my future spouse to Canada?

Thank you,

RK

No, offer of employment will not speed up your interview.

You may start sponsoring your spouse as soon as you get married after landing
as a PR in Canada.

Do not change marital status after visa is issued!!!

If got married after applying for PR visa but before approval decision is made
then notify visa post immediately about the fact and submit spouse's
application with all required documents and fees.

Note that change in marital status prior to landing will invalidate your visa
if such is issued to you as a single.

can you actually do that? i thought you need to establish
yourself first (finding a job etc) before you can sponsor
anyone?

If you were sponsoring any other family member than a spouse or dependant
child that would be true as you would haev to meet the LICO income levels
etc but those are waived for a spousal case so as long as you arent claiming
benefits you should be ok. Having some job helps though so possibly applying
the same week you land may not be so good.
