I started my wife's SOWP last month, and in less than 10days, medicals uploaded, biometrics uploaded too, just waiting for final decision. I told God to bring wifey to me by July ending, and IT IS WORKING!

Be hopeful fam, seek clarifications when confused, it helps.

Spousal open work permit


Please send them a comprehensive Email abeg

Let you spouse write to the local authorities in his county or province to help expedite the process...this very long waiting is crazy...let it not be that someone is just been lazy and causing you unnecessary delay.

Can't wait too. I applied 15th May and medicals were updated to passed 19th for spouse and 2 older kids who had medicals for their study permit. For the youngest, we applied for visitor visa because of age. Biometric also updated same day it was completed for my spouse same day while all three kids need no biometric due to their age.

I have one suggestion. Let your spouse start process of getting the full Covid-19 vaccine in Nigeria before travel time. That may save you guys up to $2,000 in quarantine costs.

Does anyone know if kids aged 8 years and 13 years can get the vaccine yet in Nigeria? Although this would only be a consideration if the travel policy updates per full vaccination exception from quarantine applies to kids of that age range.

Re: Canada Spouse Open Work Permit (sowp)timeline by Residentourist: 7:24am On Jun 11
Good morning people!!!

I recently received a positive response on my student visa application. Now I want my husband and first child to apply for Canadian visa (my other 2 kids are US citizens and do not require a visa) the challenge is most people here are applying for work permit for their spouse but what I actually want is a visitors visa because my husband cannot afford to quit his job anytime soon grin

I'd appreciate if someone could point me in the right direction of what steps to take. Ie should he apply on his own (considering that he is sponsoring me) or should I make the application under my gckey?

Please has anyone been in this situation and how did you tackle it or are you tackling it?

I'd appreciate a response. Thank you.

If you are not a PR or a Canadian citizen I will suggest you write a letter of authorization while waiting.

Hi Stonehenge83, if you don't mind me asking what's the letter of authorization for? Tho my eligibility hasn't started.
Re: Canada Spouse Open Work Permit (sowp)timeline by Stonehenge83: 11:31am On Jun 11
It does two things, one it hastens your application if you are qualified to enter Canada this covid period and two it gives you authorization if you are not qualified but can come to Canada based on job description and family ties.

Hello Everyone

Please I have a question that requires an urgent clarification.

My wife newly received a study visa approval, and myself and the children wish to travel to Canada as soon as possible. In fact, we plan to put in the application by next week. She is still in Nigeria and planning to travel in August for the fall intake. I plan to apply for SOWP, while the children will apply for study visas.

Meanwhile, in filling the family information form, she had indicated that no family member would accompany her to Canada. She had stated thus in order to use me and the children as home ties.

Now the question is: if the rest family members now apply to join her in Canada, would IRCC not consider this as amounting to misrepresentation? Could IRCC use the information in her family information form against us?

Do we have people here who had stated similar thing in their family information form, yet still got SOWP for the spouse and study visas for children?

Please do help a family!

Many thanks in anticipation.
Re: Canada Spouse Open Work Permit (sowp)timeline by Stonehenge83: 3:00pm On Jun 11
Amen o. I think the approach now is to first write the authorization letter, get a positive response before submitting the application. Because application in recent times gets biometrics and medicals passed within 2 weeks. Let's hope for the best in all.

Well my SOWP is still in progress but that's what we did. She got to Canada first before I put in my application. She applied for her study visa and visitor's visa for our 10 months old baby. So I think it's in order.

Re: Canada Spouse Open Work Permit (sowp)timeline by Eilenora: 5:49pm On Jun 11
Guys how long does it take for IRCC to get back to you on request for written authorization? Hubby's own has been in since April 21st, no response. Application submitted March 15, upfront medicals updated May 19th. Since then nothing.
Re: Canada Spouse Open Work Permit (sowp)timeline by folla: 6:31pm On Jun 11
Thank you Stonehenge83 for your time.

Please I still need the confirmation from people who had successfully obtained their SOWP and study visas, notwithstanding that it was earlier stated in the family information form that they would not accompany the principal applicant to Canada.

Please our seniors should assist.

I already put in for a visitor’s visa. Used the Covid-19 prioritisation option. Hopefully, they get back in 14 days too... if not, may just apply for SOWP. The wait is scary �

Seniors in the house, is it possible to have both visitors and SOWP visa application in the system at the same time?

No ....ur uci no will link both and I don't think it will be favorable
The only application u can have running together is to be in express entry pool and have normal TRV application running.
