He has already submitted an application. All he is asking is if it's necessary to submit or add his wife's pgwp to his application since his wife's study permit will be expiring March this year. So what's your take/ opinion? His application has already been sent August last year.
Is2bEe:
if he wants to rely on the wife's PGWP for his OPen work permit don't you think the wife must secure employment in certain category of occupation (NOC A or O). Pls look into this

The house's input would be appreciated as I am in a similar situation, I have finished school and just got my work permit which of course could not be included in my husband's application when we applied in August as I was still in school. As per @IS2BE's comment, I am also of the opinion that the VO might be looking for evidence of a job in the specified NOC categories once they see that the status has changed from "student" to "worker"

What I did was to include my job offer letter in my PGWP application (in December) with the hope that they will check my profile and see that I have a job should they require that information while reviewing hubby's application. I will appreciate any advice on how to update his application with the latest development as the option does not exist in his CIC account. One must not wait in vain o.

I will advise you add your spouse WP, to do this you'll fill a Web form on CIC and also send it to accra via email. Though when the VO check the UCI# they'll see the current status of your spouse but notifying them won't do you harm.
Also for the record if you hold open work permit you don't need a job before your spouse can apply for SOWP.
Is only closed work permit holders that needs an employment of NOC O, A, B and must have at least 6 months left on their permit before their spouse can apply.

Yes you can send them the newly approved PGWP and through Web form since you applied online for your SOWP or simply email it to Accra. However, to be on a safe side, i would advise you/she also include a copy her job offer letter in NOC O, A, or B category. Also, include recent payslips from the job.

[quote author=Is2bEe post=52529412] hello, I advise you apply for open work permit for your husband and NOT "visit visa". From little research I have done, visit visa is rarely granted to spouse of students. Mostly refused on purpose of visit while open work permit is almost certain though might take a long time to process especially if you go online route. Please consider open work permit even if your husband doesn't have intention to stay there.... AND do paper


Setiously?? Because of the long processing time for SOWP, I also wanted to apply for visiting visa for hubby and daughter first of all and get to work permit later. So chances of success with visiting visa is low? Pls house members, are you guys of the same opinion?

Hi All. Pls for those who applied using paper route at vfs lekki, apart from the yellow receipt slip, did you get any email confirming submission of your application. if you did, when from your submission date did you get it. By the way, Ruth222 Pls add me to the list, submitted Dec 29, paper route. Hubby is a Masters student in Canada.

I still think you should take the Work Permit route. I applied for TRV 2ce for my wife (to avoid the long processing time for Work Permit) and twice she was denied . It was after this that I applied for Work Permit before she was now granted a visa. A process that should have taken a few months ended up taking over a year.

Apply for the Work Permit (paper application), I hear it's way faster.

Not sure of the exact date my husband went for is biometric, but somewhere around ending of august...application submitted 25th online and no upfront medicals done. I thought online route would be faster than paper because that is how it works here, but I guess it's otherwise...

Re: Canada Spouse Open Work Permit (sowp)timeline by Gymme(m): 4:25pm On Jan 06, 2017
You've got two options. One way is to email the additional documents to Accra.

The other way is by using Web Form (NO NEED to log in to your CIC online account to do this). The web form process will ask for your application number, UCI number, applicant's full name etc. You also have the choice to attach additional documents during this process before you finally submit your inquiry.

Re: Canada Spouse Open Work Permit (sowp)timeline by Ceekoneal: 8:43pm On Jan 06, 2017
Just a question is it still possible to do upfront medicals after the application has been submitted or just wait?
Re: Canada Spouse Open Work Permit (sowp)timeline by moyin1010: 8:55pm On Jan 06, 2017
H[quote author=Sevenody post=52564689][/quote]. From my little research I think the best for spouse is the spouse open work permit, more reliable than visit visa. So I will wait for till when I start my program in may then hubby will apply.

Since you've submitted your application, it is no more called upfront medical. As such, you would have to wait until you are asked to by CIC.

If you want, sure you can do the medical and it'll be updated on your application when cic get the result.

I submitted my wife and son application in October without upfront medical but we were nominated on express entry in Dec which we've to do upfront medical. I checked the application last week and noticed both the Sowp and express entry medical has been updated.
