This Week’s Featured Success Story: Couple Reunited After Successful Sponsorship Application!
An application for permanent resident status, based on a spousal sponsorship, was approved within 6 months! The application was sent to Citizenship and Immigration Canada (CIC) in the middle of July 2015 and by the end of November 2015 the visa was ready. At the time of filing the application, for this particular office, the processing time was 28 months. The case faced challenges, as the sponsor was a young person who was in the process of completing her schooling and searching for employment. Concerns were raised by the visa office regarding the financial situation of the sponsor and her ability to fulfill her sponsorship obligations. The application was approved after additional submissions were made, addressing the financial admissibility. We are very pleased that this young couple will be reunited in Canada very soon.
