I used my family as hometie in my SOP and I have gotten my visa and I want to apply for my husband and children now, HOW DO I GO ABOUT IT?

sowp for my husband and sp for my children.
I intend to submit their application by January when I get to Canada cos my course is just 1yr

Re: Canada Spouse Open Work Permit (sowp)timeline by folla: 9:28am On Dec 05, 2023
In your husband's SOP, ensure you explain the sudden change in plan. That is, why your husband and the children now wish to travel with you.

Your husband's home tie will now be his parents, your parents, his siblings, landed property and his professional associations (if applicable).

No problem just write a letter of explanation for change in your application ie you underestimated the physiological and emotional the separation would cause to your family etc

Note: You also need to write a letter of explanation to support your husband and kids application

No, it's essentially the same; people simply refer to it in the manner they deem suitable.

Good luck!

Building on folla's recommendation, I suggest that you gather all necessary documents and apply after three months. This approach tends to be more beneficial than applying after just one or two months. In cases where my clients have sufficient funds, I typically advise them to apply at the same time.

Good luck!

I saw your comment and think it may be helpful for a friend. He used his family as tie. He was issued visa for Study starting in May 2024. He's thinking of applying sowp for spouse and sp for kids. Is this advisable or it's better he lands first. Course duration is one year
Re: Canada Spouse Open Work Permit (sowp)timeline by chillChill1: 8:04am On Dec 06, 2023
They actually made a mistake on the mail and she went in to correct it, the confirmation message came to the corrected mail later. but the when you track, the feedback is that it has been submitted to ircc for processing since november 15th 2023.
Oluwaloniglory7:

Do you received message when you first submitted thier passport? If yes I will say you should give them a little time because I was thinking maybe they didn't write their email correctly or they didn't see it well.

Your passport can be ready and waiting for you at VFS

ALRIGHT, THANK YOU
Jenonye:


Same thing happened to me. I submitted my passport via DHL , I didn’t get any confirmation that they have received it. After one week, I checked my portal and saw my letter of introduction. The next day I went to Vfs to collect my passport without any evidence to prove that it was ready. The person in charge asked me for the confirmation email I told him I didn’t get but that I already saw my introduction letter on my portal which means my passport has been stamped. Then he used my name and DOB to search for my passport and found it. Pls tell your wife to go there and ask them for it. It should be ready.

Dear Nairalanders,

There is a new update for the cost of living for study permit applicant now in Canada. This will take effect from 1st of January, 2024.

Please follow the link below to keep yourself abreast. They are really raising the bar up there - more than 100% increment sad sad sad. Please, you all should reevaluate your POF and plans.

Re: Canada Spouse Open Work Permit (sowp)timeline by OkukuOne(m): 11:58pm On Dec 07, 2023
They have the option to apply now or at a later time. What the IRCC representatives primarily seek is a consistency with your original intent, and if there are any changes, they'll want to know the reasons. If you can effectively communicate "a compelling love story", the application for your spouse and children will also likely be approved, provided they fulfill the other necessary criteria.

Good luck to them!

Guys please I need urgent clarification.

My wife study permit & student visa expires July next year. The plan is to extend her study permit an additional year to 2025. Can I apply for SOWP next year using her study permit alone once her visa expires? Does she need to apply for student visa extension before I can apply for SOWP?

Your urgent response will be appreciated.

You can apply before it expires but if u can be patient a little wait for her to get an extension reason is that if you apply now they will grant you visa until the date her current visa expires and will extend it only when her new application is approved so u see the choice is yours
Re: Canada Spouse Open Work Permit (sowp)timeline by OkukuOne(m): 6:11am On Dec 09, 2023
Nothing on that yet. I can't advise on that now until it is announced.

You have the option to apply now or later, based on your readiness.

Regarding the extension of her study permit until 2025, you didn't provide many details, which limits my ability to offer specific advice. However, I'll outline two possible scenarios:

1. If she needs to retake a failed course, she will likely get the extension. However, if the courses are few, her study permit status might change to part-time. This could significantly impact a spouse planning to apply for a SOWP.

2. If she's starting a new course for a year, that's straightforward. However, I recommend starting the SOWP application process now or preparing all necessary documentation to justify why you need to join your spouse immediately. If your SOWP application is pending when the extension is approved, you'll just need to update your application with the new documents via webforms to IRCC.

Good luck!

That is not a problem, when she gets her extension, he can apply online or flagpole immediately to get his extension as well to the new date now given to his wife.

Don't waste time unless you have enough of it.


Good luck!

Hi people, I need clarification on a topic please.

For someone who had previously studied in Canada and had PGWP whose spouse (newly-wedded) wants to go to Canada on Study Visa. Is it possible to get SOWP for the person who has previously studied?

Hello House!

Wife just got an admission for September, 2024. The husband will be applying for SOWP. Can they both apply now? Won't it be too early to apply for thier visas?

Also, it is advisable for them to apply together or for the wife to apply first?

If the wife decides to apply first and she gets her study visa approved, can the husband apply for SOWP immediately while the wife is still in Nigeria?

Thank you.

Not too early, just that it's advisable to travel a month to the start of the program.

Also, it is advisable for them to apply together or for the wife to apply first?

If you have the required POF and a good love story, i would say both should apply as the same time.

If the wife decides to apply first and she gets her study visa approved, can the husband apply for SOWP immediately while the wife is still in Nigeria?

Yes, with a good reason why you did not apply initially.

Good luck!

Thank you.
