Spousal sponsorship application for Canadian permanent residence

travel_exploreImmigration & Residency


A spousal sponsorship application enables you to sponsor an exclusive partner’s immigration to Canada.
There are two methods of making a sponsorship application:

Outland spousal sponsorship: An outland spousal sponsorship is processed where your partner resides, and you can make an appeal if your application is refused.
Inland spousal sponsorship: This type of sponsorship will be processed within Canada. Your partner must in most cases have a status in Canada as a visitor, student, or worker for this application. You cannot appeal the refusal of an inland spousal sponsorship.

There are three types of spousal sponsorship:

Sponsoring a spouse: Your spouse is your partner via a legally recognized marriage.
Sponsoring a common-law partner: Your common-law partner is someone you have lived with for a specific period in an exclusive relationship without being married.
Sponsoring a conjugal partner: Your conjugal partner is someone with whom you are in a committed relationship without living together or being married.

Frequently Asked Questions

Users ask this questions about this service.

  • Consultation calls can be rescheduled but will not be refunded unless agreed.
    All governments do not refund any application fees, so these are not refundable.
    Ask your Expert about their full refund policy.

  • Officer interviews are conducted by government officials to assess your relationship or clear any other concerns. Arranged marriages are very different, given the fact that these marriages are not subject to a significant courtship period, but rather, are based on the assessment of compatibility as seen by the parents of both prospective spouses. Most visa officers understand the context. In these situations, where there is a concern that the compatibility is not present (according to cultural norms), then an interview may be necessary. A case where an officer calls for an interview may not necessarily be a cause for alarm, if the applicant is prepared for the interview, and has presented accurate forms and documents to the immigration department. Interviews are also an opportunity for a person to explain the idiosyncrasies of their case.

  • The average time is around 12 months, but it can be shorter or longer depending on the circumstances.

  • The consultation call is carried on for 30 minutes through online services like visadb's, Google Meet or Zoom.
