If i do not have copr, but have a family member who is a PR, can I still apply for an authorization letter?

Anndav:



It is well does ppl can train someone in the school of patience, but it will end in praise


I saw some guidelines am going to past it below, just try it politely if you have not done dat already,

author=two4 post=99211914]Please if anyone has written a travel exemption letter that was successful approved, please let us know the supporting documents you included and the format of the letter, this is the second disapproval response I am getting, I haven’t seen my husband for more than a year now!!

Treat as urgent!
COPIED! COPIED!! COPIED!!!


Read. This might help you

Post-March COPR holder
Got Authorization Letter from IRCC. Hence posting what I did to obtain it. You can try it if you have any siblings living in Canada
(Please DO NOT send me personal messages, here I am explaining everything I did to obtain the letter)

I am the primary applicant while my wife is dependent. Her sister lives in Canada. Therefore, she is eligible for travel exemption.

Step 1- Filled up the statutory declaration form from https://www.canada.ca/content/dam/ircc/documents/pdf/english/kits/forms/imm0006e-2020-10-09.pdf
Send it to her sister living in Canada and asked her to complete rest of the part and after that she NOTARIZED it by an appropriate authority in Canada

Step 2- Her sister sent the notarized declaration form to us. We had to submit it with our application of travel exemption.

Step 3- Her sister also sent her Canadian Passport, Driving License (These will ensure your siblings status in Canada)

Step 4- Prepared a quarantine plan.
Accommodation_I wrote I will book through Airbnb. |
Grocery_I wrote I will get it from Amazon and I have amazon prime
Food_ I wrote I will get food delivery from UBER eats.
Transport from Airport_ I wrote I will use UBER
I also mentioned I would get a private health insurance.

Step 5- Emailed to IRCC.COVID-TravelExemptions-Exemptionsdevoyage-COVID.IRCC
subject- Request for Written Authorization to reunite with extended family member

Included our Name, DOB, Passport, UCI number, Application number.

Reason for travel- We wrote, currently we are living in Australia with no relatives here. It is also risky to go back to my home country (Bangladesh) since the COVID cases are high. It has been mentally challenging for us to stay here now and we need support from family members.

Attachments-
1. Quarantine plan
2. Proof of relationship between my wife and her sister (birth certificate)
3. Statutory declaration form

Had to wait for 18 business days after that they approved travel exemption only for my wife with 6months validity. They send me a separate email on same email address mentioning my request for authorization letter rejected.

After 3 days I have send them another email with a subject 'Request for Authorization to Unite Immediate Family member'
Even though my wife didnt go to Canada yet, I explained we want to travel together and I need an AL for it. On the email I did not attach anything.

Got a reply after 12 days from IRCC. They asked me to provide,
1. My passport no, DOB, UCI, application number.
2. Proof of relationship with my wife .
3. Proof of immigration status of my wife
4. Proof of Travel Authorization of my wife.

I have sent another email with following attachments,
1. Passport no, UCI, DOB, Application number
2. Marriage certificate
3. Scanned copy of her VISA
4. Her Travel authorization letter.

After 9 days, my request of Travel Authorization Letter was approved. The Authorization letter will be valid for 3months.

Re: Canada Spouse Open Work Permit (sowp)timeline by iambayoeleshin(m): 9:38pm On Mar 21
Good day, all. I just stumbled on this thread and I find it facinating.

My family and I want to relocate to Canada using the study route.
We plan that my wife will study there while she does part-time jobs and I do full-time jobs and our daughter goes to school there.

We have narrowed it down to university of saskatchewan and plan to apply as soon as we get all the documents.

I just need clarification on visa application.
We plan to apply for our visas all together.
Study Visa for my wife, Study Permit for my wife, Visitors Visa for me, Work permit for me and Visitors visa for our daughter.

We plan to apply for all of this at the same time.
I need your advice.

God bless you as you comment.

The route you want to tow is tough. I will advise you allow your wife get approved for study permit first, then you can apply for Open work permit then VV for your daughter if younger than 5 years.

Thank you so so much.
I really appreciate it.
Just one more thing.

Does this mean she will have to get to Canada first before I and my daughter apply?

Hello All,

I just got a passport request, from what I could gather here, it appears Abuja VFS is faster, I am based in Lagos, can I send to abuja VFS? Your quick response will be appreciated.
Re: Canada Spouse Open Work Permit (sowp)timeline by cyris: 6:22pm On Mar 23
Congrats.

Yes Abuja is really fast, faster than I even expected. I learnt that they might charge u extra if you didn't do your biometrics with them, I am not sure though.

I dropped my passport at DHL office, they guided me what to do, they are conversant with it

Congrats. Yes you can send to Abuja but you will be required to pay one fee like that if you are not sending to the place you did your biometrics.

Please can you share your timeline?

Hi All,
For someone who submitted biometric in Lagos and has the slip,which place is better to send passport to?Abuja or Lagos in terms of quick return of passport?
If one decides to have it done in Abuja, would the person have to pay the transmission fee?
DHL or UPS which is better for this process?
Thanks

Re: Canada Spouse Open Work Permit (sowp)timeline by FYsol: 11:23pm On Mar 23
There are some work permits that are being supported by provinces. They do refer to them as LMIA Exempt. Their applications and that of their spouses are usually processed within 2 weeks if there is no need for additional documents.

That's the reason for the short period for approval.

Please can someone assist me on how to submit a passport to Ghana VAC?
I emailed them and they mentioned that I have to pay GHS 35 to their Ecobank account and that includes DHL return.
I would like to clarify if that is all the amount I have to pay because I have read somewhere that someone paid GHS 155

Thanks

Hello everybody
I’m a student currently in Canada and my program ends in August. I’m getting married this year. What are the chances of my spouse getting SOWP approval during my one year post graduate work permit?
Is it better to apply for SOWP during my study period?
