hi nairalanders, my husband applied for the canadian Family Sponsorship Visa for me in December 2017 but i haven't received any update from them since then.

no biometrics or medicals request yet, is it normal?

He is a Canadian citizen and lives in Canada while I live in Nigeria.

Please how long do family sponsorship visa take to be ready?
Re: Canada Spouse Open Work Permit (sowp)timeline by okelion: 10:00pm On Oct 01
Hi RedDoor,
It is not normal at all. They should have called for biometrics or medicals. It would be good if you can contact the London office if it is an online application or Lagos office if it is paper-based. Your husband is Canadian which should make things easier and faster, the delay is abnormal. Try contacting them.

Regards,

Hello my people, just a quick question for you all. Is the marriage certificate from Ikoyi the only recognized cert or the ones from states are also acceptable?

From the past thread I read, you could print it out on A4 paper, and then submit with other documents

This is really unusual. Have you tried sending a message to them? Or your spouse in canada contacting an MP to write to them?

I think it's just a bit of frustration on waiting for CIC. Imagine, somone's application pending for 5 months, and you expect the person to come and start replying others, when he/she does not know the outcome of his

Please urgent someone should be help out
Thanks
Re: Canada Spouse Open Work Permit (sowp)timeline by Bab5: 8:40pm On Oct 15
Good day. You can leave it out. Its optional. You will always get a TRV when your visa is approved. I hope this helps.

Timeline

Application(open work permit)submitted online -3rd of April, 2018
Upfront medicals - 1st of Sept, received email of acknowledgment on 7th of sept, medicals passed on 15th of Sept.
Still waiting.... Surprisingly average processing time for Nigerians is 10 weeks at the moment.

I pray for approval for us in the possible soonest of time. Amen
Re: Canada Spouse Open Work Permit (sowp)timeline by wealth360: 11:34pm On Oct 15
I hope this is not too late @Bab5 suggestions is not right from my own perspective, please fill TRV form for all the kids but their application may not need too much documentation like your own OWP, because their application depends on yours.

Re: Canada Spouse Open Work Permit (sowp)timeline by wealth360: 6:53pm On Oct 16
You are good to go my dear. The study permit you applied for is basically what your kids need to apply for, TRV is temporary resident visa, which means you and your kids will first get TRV and as soon as you get to the port of entry you will get your OWP and your kids will get their study permit. Assuming your kids are not applying for study permit, it means that you will fill TRV forms for them alone not you.
