Amid Coronavirus Canada Still Accepting applications for Spouse Visa

Amid Coronavirus Canada Still Accepting applications for Spouse Visa

IRCC announced that they are still accepting the applications for the Spouse Visa amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

In the latest announcement regarding the immigration programs, the Federal government of Canada has said that they are still accepting and processing spousal and common-law sponsorship applications for partners who are both in Canada or abroad.

This latest announcement is good news for those applicants, who have not yet get an opportunity to file their application for the process to the Canadian immigration authorities.

 In the process of refining the measures for COVID 19, Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) has answered some questions regarding the sponsorship immigration program.

Accepting Incomplete applications

IRCC announced that they will be accepting incomplete applications in line of business including spousal sponsorship during the pandemic. This allows the applicants to not delay their immigration process due to some administrative closures for procuring some documents.

An incomplete application will be kept and review in 90 days, including the reason why the required documents are missing. If the application is not able to complete the application in 60 days, Immigration officials are instructed to request the missing documents with an additional 90-day deadline.

EI does not make the applicant ineligible to sponsor

Before the surge in the Employment Insurance applications following the latest layoffs, Canadian citizens or permanent residents are still able to sponsor their spouse if they are collecting the EI.

For Canadain, it is last-resort financial assistance from a provincial government, this does not make ineligible for the process unless it is because of a disability, there are cases where the government funding will not spell inadmissibility. These cases can be included in the following examples, but are not limited to these only:

  • Subsidized Housing
  • Tax Credits
  • Child Care Subsidies
  • Other benefits which could be widely available to residents of a province or territory, including persons who are employed

Spouse and Common-law partners Exempted from Travel Restrictions

Both the spouse and common-law partners are considered immediate family members, thus they are exempted from any travel restrictions under the measures of containing the spread of the coronavirus. Canadian citizens, permanent residents, and immediate family members are exempted from the travel restrictions implemented on March 18 and are expected to be in effect until June 30.
