Hi, I am Moris a Canadian Citizen living outside Canada and i will appreciate if you could guide me the facts to sponsor my sponsor my spouse.

I migrated to Canada in 2002 and I sponsor my wife and 2 kids in 2004 and they got their permanent residency status and card which was valid from Oct, 2004 to Oct -2009.

Due to some family reason my spouse came back to India after staying for 4 months.

In short she lived in Canada for almost 12 months in 3 different visit out of 5 years which could not meet the residency obligation for renewing P R Card and she continued lived here.


I as a husband also living with her in India and being a Canadian Citizen I used to go Canada and coming back to India.

Now I want to sponsor my wife again and I am living outside Canada.

Should I apply again with the fresh sponsorship process
OR
Is there any other provision to apply.


I will be thankful if you could guide me.



Thanking you

1. If you are a Canadian citizen residing abroad with your spouse she should apply for a PR Travel document, as she would have maintained her PR status residing with you.

But during Oct 2004 to Oct 2009 I was in Canada she visited and stayed only 12 months in 3 different visit out of 5 years which could not meet the residency obligation for renewing P R Card.

Now I have 2 options mentioned below

1 Should I apply again with the fresh sponsorship process with fee.
OR
2 Is there any other provision to apply.

If you or someone knows or faced this type of situation please guide me.

Thanks

1. As long as you have been residing together abroad for the past 2 years, then she meets her residency obligations.

Thanks but they will ask about history before the last 2 years too.

But in any case if they disapprove then what option is left for me.

I will have to cancel my previous PR or this will be automatically cancelled while disapprove?

Can I apply a fresh application to sponsor my spouse, if yes then previous history will effect fresh case.

Your suggestion will be appriciated.
Thanks
