You're welcome

Hi,

I have one more question; when you submitted your 2 passport photographs with your application, how did you go about it?

Was it printed and mailed to your spouse to submit? Or did your spouse had to print on a white plain sheet? Or did you submit the application from your end?

Thanks

Thanks for the response.

Could you please clarify what you mean by "paper with picture quality"? Was this printed on a normal white plain paper or using the kind of passport material?

We have printed my spouse's picture on a white plain sheet (color) but we are not sure if that's acceptable. (i.e., do we have to print it using the standard passport material?)

Kindly clarify. Thanks.

Thank you! This is very detailed and helpful, I appreciate it.

Did your spouse print your scanned front and back photo on an A4 paper or did he use a passport material? The challenge is we don't know what material is acceptable to print on. (I.e., if an A4 paper will be acceptable with the front picture and back details)

Is there a way to apply online? I don't think you can submit spousal application online, you can only fill the forms electronically and submit by mail or courier service. (I may be wrong). Then you can link it to your online account after submission.

That said, I've gone ahead to mail our sponsorship documents to the processing center today.

Thanks,

Thank you for clarifying this. I was a bit confuse as people were talking about online application.

Anyways I have asked another questions regarding the forms part that requires both sponsor signature and applicant.

How did y'all go about it?

I see. Not about to open a pandora box lol, but if you applied online why did you have to link it to your GCKey? Wasnt it already linked? What link did you use to submit your applications online?

Even though we already submitted our application, I'm sure others will be interested in knowing if there's an online application for sponsorship and how to go about it.

Answered this via email but for others who may have similar questions, here goes;

Since I was the one submitting the application on my end, we filled the forms electronically, sent to my husband, he only printed the parts requiring his declaration and signature, scanned only those pages back to me. Then I printed all the forms on my side, signed on the ones relating to me and added his signed copies to each of the forms.

Then we mailed it to the processing center. 

Hope this helps.

Here is the basic guide we used in completing our application. Alongside the checklist that came with the application kit. It all points to mailing the documents to a processing center.

The basic guide only explains that the processing fee can be paid online, and the application can be linked online after the documents are received and processed in the system.

I'll be surprised if we could actually do this same process online and CIC didn't make it clear.

The link to apply online is not through GCkey, its after you apply and get AOR you will be asked to link the application to your GCKey

all paper and online application will follow the same route in linking GCkey

This is the link for online application https://prson-srpel.apps.cic.gc.ca/en/application/view-applications

OloriofMontreal the online application for family /spousal sponsorship started July 7th 2021. It's the best way to go now as all these nuances of the type of paper quality for the submission of the passport photograph won't come up.

Wow CIC not again! They keep rolling out new amateur sites and refuse to update their home pages and basic guides. Thanks both of you for clarifying.

We have gone through the painful process of submitting by paper, although we probably would have still done paper so as not to be limited by upload size, but hopefully others will find this useful/helpful and they can decide which works best for them.

Thanks again

It was an hour long. It was less about questions and more of a conversation for the officer to really get into your relationship and years together, how we met, details about events in our lives. Just make sure you put together all supporting documents you can think of, which they will instruct you to do in your interview invitation letter. If your relationship is genuine, the conversation will speak for itself, you just have to be relaxed and don’t be afraid, after all, it’s genuine.
