Police certificates for Express Entry applications

It can take a long time to get police certificates. You should consider asking for them as soon as your profile is in the pool.

If you’ve been invited to apply and you still don’t have them, you should ask for them right away.

If you have a criminal record, you may not be allowed to enter or stay in Canada. People who pose a risk to Canada’s security are also not allowed to come to Canada.

Get the police certificates you need

You must include police certificates when you apply for permanent residence.

Our online system will ask for a police certificate for:

  • you and your family members who are 18 years or older
  • and
  • every country you (or a family member) stayed in during the last 10 years for 6 months or more in a row

You don’t need to give us police certificates for any period of time before you were 18 years old or for time spent in Canada.

After you apply, an officer may ask for additional police certificates from any time in your life since you were 18 years old.

Submit scanned copies of the original certificates

Police certificates must be scanned copies of the original certificate(s) in colour. Certified true copies or unauthorized copies won’t be accepted and will result in your application being rejected.

If you need a request letter

Some countries will only give you a police certificate if you have a request letter from us. If this applies to you:

  • Upload a document in the police certificate field in the document checklist that says: “I am applying from a country that requires an official request letter from IRCC to get a police certificate”.

We’ll then review your application. If it is otherwise complete, we’ll send you more information on how to get a police certificate.

Examples of when to get a police certificate

If you’re not sure if you need to get a police certificate, these examples may help you understand when you need one.

Juan is 24 years old the day he applies for permanent residence. He lived in the United States for 8 months when he was 16 years old. The system will not ask him for a police certificate from the United States.

Feras is 45 years old. He worked in Turkey for 7 months when he was 25 years old. The system will not ask him for a police certificate from Turkey.

Lailah studied in Spain between 2014 and 2020, for several 4-month study periods but she did not stay there for 6 months or more in a row. The system will not ask for a police certificate, but an officer may ask for one from Spain after she submits her application. To avoid delays, Lailah could ask for a police certificate from Spain and submit it with her application.

Date the certificate was issued

For the country where you currently live

The police certificate for the country where you currently live:

  • must be issued no more than 6 months before the date you submit your application
  • must not be expired

For any other country

For any other country, the police certificate must be issued after the last time you stayed there for 6 months or more in a row.

Some countries put expiry dates on their police certificates. If you have a police certificate that expired, include it. We’ll accept it if:

  • it was issued after the last time you stayed there for 6 months or more in a row
  • it is not for the country where you currently live

An officer may ask for a new one later on.

If you cannot get a police certificate in time

If you’re invited to apply, you have 60 days to submit your application for permanent residence. If you do not have all your police certificates by the 60-day deadline, you have 2 options:

Option 1: Decline your invitation to apply

Your profile will go back in the pool. Depending on your score, you may be invited to apply again.

Option 2: Prove you applied for the police certificate

In very rare cases, we may accept both a letter of explanation and proof that shows you made your best effort to get a police certificate on time.

You can upload this in the country-specific police certificate field of your document checklist. Examples of proof:

  • a confirmation receipt
  • a payment receipt
  • a delivery notice
  • a tracking number

An officer will review your application. If they’re not satisfied that you made your best effort, your application may be rejected for being incomplete.

Each applicant who immigrates to Canada for permanent residence must present a police certificate issued by local police authority. The immigration officer is entitled to request this document also while applying for student visa and work permit.

What is a police certificate?
A police certificate must confirm the lack of a criminal record of the applicant over the last 10 years. This document is required by the Citizenship and Immigration Canada (CIC) to prevent entring criminals, who may potentially threaten the security of Canada. Without this document the CIC will not issue the permanent residence visa. Applicants over 18 years old (or 16 years old in some countries) and all family members need to get the police certificate. The certificate may be obtained from police authorities of countries where the applicant had lived for more than 6 consecutive months since the age of 18. The certificate must be translated into English (French) language and notarized. The original police certificate must also be submitted.

Where to get the police certificate?
In most cases, you must contact the relevant police (militia) department to be issued this document. You may have to provide additional information, such as fingerprints, photos, residence address, etc. If the applicant lived in the country that has changed its name or status (eg, USSR), a police certificate should come from the current national authorities of the country (Russia, Ukraine, and so on).
In some cases, the applicant can not get a police certificate. Then he/she must provide a written explanation of the reasons ( a refugee status). Police certificate must be received no earlier than 3 months prior to applying for permanent residence. Otherwise, the document will be considered as invalid.

How to Immigrate to Canada from Russian

How to Immigrate to Canada from Russia

There are many reasons why people want to Immigrate to Canada from Russia, such as creating a better future for their families, a good work-life balance, furthering their studies or maybe just to be in a larger economy more connected to the powerhouse of the United States with the career opportunities that Canada brings.

Many Russian Citizens immigrate to Canada as the first stage in their eventual immigration to the USA because with a Canadian Passport, new immigrant Canadian Citizens are allowed to choose whether to remain in Canada or to Live and Work in the United States.

Here at Emigrate Canada we’ve assisted many thousands of people move to Canada from Russia, from all walks of life and both expats as well as Russian Citizens. Our clients include families, individuals and Russian Businesses.

When most people immigrate to Canada from Russia they have deep family or personal reasons for moving. For some, it’s a lifelong dream, for others, it’s about space and quality of life. Canadian Immigration is currently going through a once in a generation opportunity, with the Canadian Government announcing a critical need for up to 1 million highly skilled migrants over the next two years.

After this 1 million migrant quota has been reached the Canadian Immigration program could close entirely for many years. Once Canada is full, Immigration opportunities will cease for Russian Citizens.

The varied reasons for Immigrating to Canada from Russia include clean living, combined with unparalleled nature wilderness and winter sports opportunities. For some skilled immigrants to Canada moving from Russia its to reunite with family and for others it’s a return to the place they built up great memories as a student or on a IEC working holiday visa. Others move to Canada from Russia to start a new business or to invest in the country’s many opportunities.

Is it easy to immigrate to Canada from Russia?

The great thing about Canadian Immigration and those looking to immigrate to Canada from Russia is that Canada makes very little distinction between nationalities.

This means when it comes to immigrating to Canada from Russia both expats in Russia and Russian Citizens are treated in a similar manner.

Whilst it is certainly not easy for an Russian Citizen to Immigrate to Canada, it’s no more ‘difficult’ than if you were migrating to Canada from the Russia or the USA.

How to immigrate out of Russia to Canada

Most clients thinking of immigrating from Russia to Canada have a more Permanent move in mind, with a Canadian Permanent Residency Visa their aim. A Canadian Permanent Residency Visa allows Russian holders of such (and their immediate families) to:

Live and work in Canada

Enter and leave the Country as they so choose without the need for further visas

Access medical care

Access the Canadian Education system for their Children

Own Property in Canada

Best of all, holders Canadian permanent residency visas migrating to Canada from Russia can convert their Permanent Residency visas to full Canadian Citizenship, which is great for expats and of course Russia has no objection to Dual Citizenship.

Canada Immigration Permanent Residency for Russian Citizens can be thought of as ‘tentative Citizenship” because there are very few differences between permanent residency and citizenship in Canada. The major differences are that a Permanent Resident cannot vote, and that permanent residents may still be deported if they commit a serious crime.

How long does Canada Immigration Permanent Residency last?

Once you and your family have been awarded Permanent Residency you will be able to hold this on an indefinite basis, as long as you accumulate at least 2 years of residency in every 5 years period. This does not need to be consecutive, and is a cumulative figure.

The next step is to submit your express entry application to the Canadian Government.

What is Express Entry in the Canadian Immigration Process?

Express Entry is the name given to the candidate pool from all over the world of people wanting to Immigrate to Canada. This process involves having your professional qualifications credentialed and certified so they can be approved as being able to meet the standard of Canadian employment in the area of employment and note that many professions will have to go further to be fully assessed to industry or professional body registration within Canada and this may require testing as a condition of being granted your visa. So it is important to know the requirements of your trade or profession.

Every Profession, Occupation, and Trade has their own Skills Assessment Authority tied to Canadian Immigration or a specific Province and it’s their role to say an applicant is who they say they are, and has the right skills, experience, and qualifications.

Making an Express Entry Application to Immigrate to Canada from Russia

With a positive skills assessment or your education verified, it’s time to lodge your Express Entry application. It’s important that we make this Application as strong as possible because it’s the details in this declaration that Canada uses to decide which applications are going to receive their Invitation to Apply for the Visa.

Express Entry is not a ‘visa’ in its own right, it simply allows successful candidates to be filtered out to receive an Invitation to Apply for a Federal Skilled Trades Visa, a Federal Skilled Worker Visa or a Provincial Nomination Visa.

An Invitation to Apply (ITA) can be best described as approval in principle of your visa, allowing you to migrate to Canada from Russia.

Canada Immigration from Russia Provincial Nomination Program

To immigrate to Canada from Russia under the Provincial Nominee Program, an Russian applicant must first make representation for a Provincial Nomination Certificate to the provincial government where they intend to ultimately settle.

Each province has different requirements and Provincial nominees receive priority processing for their permanent residency applications. With a Provincial Nomination Certificate in hand Canada Immigration applicants are boosted through the Express Entry Platform into the relevant Permanent Residency Visa stream, without the need for a job offer (although some provinces and occupations do indeed require this to secure the Provincial Nomination in the first instance).

Final Visa Application to Immigrate to Canada from Russia

With an ITA in hand, it’s time to complete the final complicated stages of the Canada Visa process and to complete health checks and medicals.

Once your Canada visa is granted you’re all set to make the move to Canada from Russia. You don’t need to move immediately (though most do) and you have 12 months to activate your Canadian Permanent Residency Visas once they are granted.

How long does it take to Immigrate to Canada from Russia?

On average do allow a year for the process from start to finish. Sometimes it happens sooner, sometimes later though one year is a good benchmark to keep in mind.

How much money do I need in the bank for Canada Immigration from Russia?

How long does Canada Immigration Permanent Residency last for Russian Citizens?

Once you and your family have been awarded Permanent Residency you will be able to hold this on an indefinite basis, as long as you accumulate at least 2 years of residency in every 5 years period. This does not need to be consecutive, and is a cumulative figure. This means that it would be very easy to travel back and forth to Russia regularly, and for extended periods of time.

Police Clearance Certificates for Express Entry Invitation to Apply Application

Anyone applying for permanent residence in Canada through Express Entry who has received an invitation to apply (ITA), must show police clearance certificates in order to submit a complete application.


Candidates who are eligible for one of the programs under Express Entry can submit a profile to the Express Entry pool. Their profile is assigned a CRS score, and the highest-ranking candidates are periodically issued invitations to apply for permanent residence. Once candidates who receive an ITA submit an application for permanent residence through Express Entry, their application is usually processed within six months.

Once you receive an ITA, you only have 90 days to gather all the required documents to complete your application for permanent residence. One of the documents that you’ll need is the police clearance certificate.

Applicants are required to show a police clearance certificate for themselves, as well as any immediate family members who are above the age of 18, whether they are accompanying you or not. You, and each applicable family member, need to show a police clearance certificate for each country or region where you have spent time for at least six months since the age of 18.

What is a Police Clearance Certificate?

A police clearance certificate is a document that attests to any criminal activity. For Canadian immigration purposes, it is proof that you have not been involved in any criminal activity and that you do not have a criminal record that could impact your admissibility to the country.

A police clearance certificate will be different in each territory or country and may be known by various names including:

  • Police clearance certificates
  • Judicial record extracts
  • Good conduct certificate

When Should I Get a Police Clearance Certificate?

Police clearance certificates are valid for one year from the date they were issued. However, police clearance certificates from the country in which you currently reside have to have been issued within six months from when you submit your application for permanent residence.

Police clearance certificates from countries that you no longer reside in have to have been issued after you left the country for the last time.

Since police clearance certificates have a pretty short validity period, we usually recommend to our clients that they wait until they receive an ITA before applying for all applicable police clearance certificates.

If it takes longer than 90 days to process your application for a police clearance certificate, don’t worry. You can apply for an extension from Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) as long as you can demonstrate that you have applied for the missing police clearance certificate.

Which Countries Should I Show a Certificate For?

You need to show a police clearance certificate for any country that you have lived in for six or more months.


If the total amount of time you have spent in any country since turning 18 is six months or more, you will need a police clearance certificate from that country, even if your time in that country happened in small instalments over a long period of time, and even if you never had a fixed address in that country.

For example, if you visited, worked or lived in any country for two months, and then left the country for a few years, then returned for four months, this will still count as having spent six months there. You would therefore require a police clearance certificate from that country.

It is important to note that if the police clearance certificate is in a language other than English or French, then you must include a translation done by a certified translator.

How to Get a Police Clearance Certificate?

The process for obtaining a police clearance certificate may vary depending on the country or region. Usually, the most common way to get one is to get in touch with local police or government and request the certificate.

Applicants are usually required to provide information including photographs, fingerprints, addresses, dates you lived in a particular country or territory, and a processing fee.

If you have lived in a country or territory that has now changed its name or status, then the police clearance certificate must come from the present day national authorities of the country.

Julik’s Knowledge Base

Когда все документы отправлены на рассмотрение начинается волнительный этап ожидания результатов рассмотрения. Я собрала пару советов, на что лучше потратить это время.

Процент одобрения заявок на PR в Канаду довольно высокий, поэтому даже не смотря на то, что все очень волнуются и до конца не верят в то, что заветные визы будут в итоге проставлены в паспорта, к моменту когда это случится лучше подготовиться заранее, чтобы сразу быть готовыми лететь на покорение Северной Америки. В статье я хочу выделить, то, что я отметила нужным для себя, в каждой семье конечно же список этих вещей может отличаться.


Стоматология в Канаде дорогая и это факт, цены на обычные пломбы могут превышать цены на имплантаты в России. Если есть возоможность, лучше прорвести гигиену полости рта еще в России. Заменить старые пломбы новыми, подлечить кариес, если ессть подозрение на то, что ваши восьмерки могут вас «подставить» в ближайшие года острой болью, может быть их вообще лучше выдернуть совсем? Как пойдут дела превое время в Канаде никто не знает и когда в следующий раз будет возможностьт слетать на родину и «сделать зубы» еще не известно, лучше подстелить себе немного соломки. Лично мне кажется, что хотя бы год мне не придется думать о проблемах с зубами. Первое время в Канаде будет о чем подумать кроме.

Отдельная история это установка брекет систем. В отличии от пломб, брекет системы нуждаются в коррекции время от времени и при этом врачи-стоматологи в Канаде очень неохотно берутся за системы, установленные другими врачами. Некоторые просто отказываются работать, а некоторые говорят, что стоить это будет «очень и очень дорого». Таким образом, не стоит ставить брекеты себе перед отъездом в Канаду, возможно дешевле будет ставить их уже на месте, поскольку они нуждаются в обслуживании.

Помимо стоматологии, конечно же профилактику и предупреждение обострений хронических заболеваний тоже лучше провести заранее еще на родине. Первое время у ньюкамера не найдется времени на посещение врачей.

Американская виза

Получение Американской визы перед отъездом в Канаду может быть хорошим преимуществом, как при перелете так и при последующец жизни в Канаде. Причин для этого несколько.

Во первых, если вы захотите сэкономить на перелете, возможно вам будет интересно лететь именно через США, поскольку самые дешевые билеты из России в Северную Америку именно билеты до США. Однако, пересадка в Америке требует наличие визы.

Во вторых в Канаде визы для ньюкамера получить может быть проблемой до того момента, пока не появится стабильная работа. Конечно, вполне возможно, что пока у Вас не будет стабильной работы, то и поездки в США Вам будут не сильно нужны, но почему бы не подумать об этом заранее.

В целом статистика говорит о том, что отказы в визах ньюкамерам с работой очень редки, хотя и бывают. Более того визы в США, полученные из Канады будут выданы вам как владельцу Канадского PR, а не просто гражданину России.

Сбор документов

Конечно, большинство документов пришлось найти, получить и перевести еще для иммиграционного пакета, однако есть вещи, которыми все же стоит озаботиться заранее.

  • Общие документы

Найти, отсканировать и перевести все гражданские документы, которые могут вам пригодиться. Это и свидетельства о рождении и военные билеты и все все, что может когда-то Вам пригодится. Поскольку раздобывать ваш школьный аттестат оставленный в ВУЗе без вашего личного присутствия может оказаться невыполнимой задачей. Но никогда не знаешь заранее, что может пригодиться в Канаде.

  • Водительские права

Водить по нашим «международным» правам в Канаде долго не получится, все равно придется сдавать экзамен и получить местные права. Причем в Канаде процедура получения прав от провинции к провинции отличается и поэтому вся процедура получения их тоже будет зависеть от провинции,. куда вы собираетесь. Но в любом случае, наличие прав в стране исхода является бонусом при получении прав в Канаде, вам не надо будет проходит несколько летний этап получения сначала прав новичка и лишь после получения года наката полоценных прав. Вы сможете сразу же сдавать экзамены и получать полноценные права. При этом вы можете заранее открыть новую категорию еще в России, потому что, например, собираетесь ездить в Канаде на скутере или на мотоцикле, поскольку там это безопаснее.

  • Справка о безаварийном вождении

Когда Вы только приехали в Канаду для Вас все будет дорого. Поскольку у Вас нет ни кредитной истории, ни страховой истории цены на вашу страховку будут максимально большими. Некоторые старховые компании принимают во внимание опыт безаварийного вождения в стране исхода, подтвержденный справкой из вашей страховой. Например Ингосстрах выдает такую справку и называет ее «No Claims Certificate». Если специальной формы у страховой нет форму можно поискать на муниципальных провинциальных сайтах. Например для Манитобы есть специальный бланк. Так же текст можно придумать самому на русском, заверить печатью страхховой компании и перевести на англйиский. Гарантии того, что Ваша страховая примет в расчет справку, коннечно же нет, но если примет то это будет приятным бонусом в бюджет.

Уже ближе к отъезду обязательно необходимо оформить доверенность на родственников. Если по каким-то причинам родственникам необходимо будет проделать за вас какую-то операцию с государственными и не очень органамии, ему обязательно понадобится доверенность. Захотите ли вы поставить апостиль на свои документы, заказать справку об отсутствии судимости или просто необходимо будет получить почту. Без доверенности сделать это даже вашим родителям будет невозможно.

  • Новый загранпаспорт

Благодаря новым законам граждане России имеют право получить два загранпаспорта одновременно. Если так получилось, что Вы не стали делать новый загранпаспорт перед отправкой документов на получениие PR, то Вы вполне можете сделать себе второй паспорт на 10 лет прямо сейчас. Не смоторя на то, что услуга эта появилась уже давно, до сих пор ходят слухи, что для получения нового загранпаспорта необходимы веские аргументы, на самом деле это не так. Мы просто пришли в Единый Центр Документов, заполнили заявление на выдачу заграанпаспорта нового образца, затем через некоторое время забрали говтоый паспорт, не называя причин и не даже не показывая имующийся на руках паспорт.

Получение загранпаспорта возможно и внутри Канады в Российском посольстве. Однако, конечно же посольство есть не в каждом городе и более того, там могут быть очереди или оно может неожиданно закрыться, как поступило посольство в Торонто в 2020 году.


Если в стране исхода у Вас остаются родственники и собственность, то правильным решение будет начать переоформление этой собственности на них. Если вы решите продать квартиру, то сделать это в наше время по доверенности, находясь на другомм конце земного шара вряд ли получится. В связи с частыми случаями мошенничества к квартирам, продающимся по доверенности особое отношение. Например, у моих родителей при продаже квартиры, част которой находилась в моей собственности требовали не только нотариальную доверенность по форме банка (с указанием суммы, банка, счетов) подготовить которую заранее просто не представляется возможным, но так же все оригиналы документов о смене фаммилии например.

Кроме собственности, стоит вспомнить какие договора заключены на Вас, которые могут потребовать вашего присутствия для расторжения, может быть это мобильная связь, банковские счета, интернет проведенный в квартире у дедушки, симкарты…

Перестать покупать хлам

Ну и последнимм пунктом, казалось бы смешным, идет тпризыв к отказу от тбезграничного шоппинга и покупки ненужных вещей, брать которые в Канаду не имеет никакого смысла. Лучше откладывать деньги и ехать в Канаду с чемоданом полным денег, а не вещей которые жалко бросить.

Visa to Russia from Canada

  • Tourist visa is intended for those who travel for tourism and wish to see sights.

Russian Tourist Visa from Canada

Citizens of Canada can obtain a tourist visa in case they are planning to enter the Russian Federation to visit different cities or for the purpose of rehabilitation at the health resorts. In this case in order to receive an invitation to obtain a visa a foreign citizen should apply to a tourist company. Only those companies which have their own reference-number can issue such invitations. This type of invitation to visit Russia for Canadians can be made within 1 working day.

The outward appearance of a tourist visa is not significant. It is more important that the invitation would contain an inviting company’s reference-number and other information as well as the passport data of an invited foreign citizen. The names of the cities which a foreigner will visit should be also indicated there, as well as the hotels he/she is staying at.

Furthermore, a tourist invitation issued by a tourist company should have the information on the dates of the trip and number of the entries. Single or double entry visa to Russia from Canada can be obtained by a foreign citizen for a period of up to 30 days.

Russian Private Visa for Canadian citizens

A private visa should be applied for by those citizens of Canada who want to visit their relatives or friends located in Russia. In order to do this the relatives of a foreigner whom

he/she wants to visit have to issue a guest invitation at a local department of the Federal Migration Service (the FMS) and to send it to a foreign citizen by mail. Individuals have to apply for a guest invitation to a department of the FMS at the place of their residence. If a legal entity invites a foreign citizen its representative should give in an appropriate application and issue the invitation at the department of the FMS where such legal entity was registered.

The FMS will verify the information on the foreign citizen: whether he/she was brought to justice during his/her previous visits, was deported from the country, or has any unpaid fines. If a foreign citizen had any breakings of the law an invitation would not be issued for him/her by the FMS.

The valid term for a guest visa to Russia for a citizen of Canada can be up to 90 days. Private visa can be single or double entry.

Russian Business Visa from Canada

A business visa is obtained by those foreign citizens who are planning to enter the Russian Federation to hold negotiations, extend or sign their agreements, to look for new business partners, participate in a conference or a seminar.

The business visa invitation letter can be obtained by either of these ways:

For obtaining a business visa one has to present at the embassy a duly executed invitation (on the FMS form, on the inviting company’s letterhead or sent by telex). Only legal entities accredited at the Department of the Federal Migration Service or at the Department of the Consular Service at the Ministry for Foreign Relations of the Russian Federation should be in charge for the issuing of the invitation.

The issuing of the invitation on the form of the Federal Migration Service takes some time. A representative of an inviting organization submits to an authorized body an application to issue an invitation for a certain foreign citizen.Such invitation will be issued only after a checkup is made to prove that the foreigner doesn’t have any criminal records, deportations from the country or unpaid fines.

An invitation on the letterhead of an inviting organization can be issued only in case this organization has been accredited for that. It is a request for a consulate of the Russian Federation to issue a visa for a certain foreign citizen. The issuing of such invitation doesn’t need a lot of time: 1 day is usually enough.

An invitation sent by telex – is a requirement from the Ministry for Foreign Affairs of the Russian Federation to the Embassy of the RF. With such an invitation the inviting party gives a foreign citizen the number which he/she should quote when applying for a visa at the embassy.

A citizen of Canada can obtain a business visa for a period of up to 5 years.

Such invitation allowing him/her to have a work visa will be given only if a Canadian citizen has a special permit to work in the Russian Federation or in case he/she is an employee of a foreign representative office.

A citizen of Canada when applying for a work visa can count on the assistance of his/her employer (without that help it would be very difficult to obtain this type of a visa). After arriving to Russia a citizen of Canada has to be registered at the migration service.

When applying for a work visa a citizen of Canada has to receive a work permit and to have an invitation issued afterwards in order to obtain a visa. Visa would be initially given for 90 days. A foreign citizen should enter Russia and be registered at the migration service, after which he/she will need to extend the visa for the full term of the work permit. Then a foreign citizen will be registered at the migration service till the end of the visa period.

Police certificate from Russia for PR application Канада


Welcome to Sponsor-Canada! Today this is the only web-site on the Internet that provide details and describe complete process of How to sponsor a spouse to Canada. I mean complete immigration process to get the spouse (wife or husband) visa to Canada via Sponsorship.

Although all materials are based on experience of Canadian embassies in Russia (Moscow) and Ukraine (Kiev) , in general it should work for all other countries as well.

Step by step. The process in two words is described in «item 2» below. Details for every step you can find in articles listed in menu on the left. Most of the information is just copy-pasted from other forums — huge thanks to those who shared their experience on several forums for sponsorship (most of forums are in Russian language).

1. Moved yourself — help others.

Authors of the web-site got the problem on their own when prepared documents to sponsor a spouse to Canada to get spouse immigration visa using spouse sponsorship process to Canada. And everybody of us when collected nuggets of information had a thought — «what if get all this together in one place». Because it is not that many things you need to know to sponsor a spouse, but on the official Canadian Immigration and Citizenship pages you can find far-far from everything you need to know. You can find the official web-site on page Official instructions, there are Russian, English and French versions.

When you are filling in Forms to sponsor a spouse your questions begin from such a simple stuff like «Do I need to write apatronimic name in Forms?» [«Patronimic name» used as a middle name and «must have» in most ex-USSR countries] and goes to very important questions — what should I answer to «Provide evidences that your marriage is genuine and continuing». What should I write about? And how many? — one page, ten or five hundred? How many would be «enough» for visa-office (embassy)?

All these and other answers you can find on our web-site. If you can’t find information you need then you can ask a question from our Forum, there is English and Russian sections. Or you can ask your question on a Chemodan (Luggage) forum forum Chemodan (Russian or Ukrainian languages), authors of the web-site visit it often, as well as many other experienced people. There are discussions on many other categories of immigration, not just sponsor immigration to Canada. Many advises on this web-site have been found on the Chemodan forum.

There is no difference between to sponsor wife to Canada or to sponsor husband to Canada. So if you further see a «sponsor wife» it is same as «sponsor husband». Or better I would use words «sponsor spouse to Canada». Homosexual marriages are also accepted by Canada.

2. Whole process in two words.

    From the moment when first met your future spouse you should collect pictures and other documents as ev >2.а. Additionally for those who have a sponsor from QUEBEC.

Thanks to ove4ka:
If sponsor is living in Quebec then first, as everybody, fill in all forms [SC: there are some difference, see Manual], attach evidences and police+med certificates and send it to Missisauga. After your sponsor is approved you get regular mail letter that he(she) is approved and your File has been forwarded to Moscow(Kiev — depending where sponsored spouse is from), and next step for sponsor be fill in forms to acquire Quebec selection certificate for spouse as a family member of Quebec resident.

Forms are in French as far as I remember, spouse should sign it — we did it as follows: husband filled in everything, scanned and sent via e-mail to me, I have printed it, signed, scanned and sent to husband by e-mail. He collected all together and and sent. In about 2-3 weeks he got Quebec selection certtificate on my name and additional papers.

Quebec itself notifies embassy on his own way that spouse got certificate. You just need in future, when process be completed, to have the original Quebec selection certificate when you be landing in Montreal airport. My husband sent it to me via Exress-Canada Post.

3. General information.

Any person who is a citizen or permanent resident (same as landed immigrant) can marry and sponsor spouse to Canada, sponsor spouse immigration to Canada.

There is a recent change in this condition: if a person been sponsored on itself then this person can not sponsor anybody for five years after immigration.

After the process is completed a sponsored spouse get an immigration visa and right after entering Canada immediately become a permanent resident with all rights. A sponsor is obliged to cover spouse’s expenses for food and housing during first three years after spouse entered Canada.

Если муж и жена прожили непрерывно вместе меньше, чем два года и у них нет совместных детей, то при въезде в Канаду спонсируемая жена получает «условный» статус постоянного резидента на два года: если они в течении двух лет после въезда разведутся, то у жены могут анулировать статус посоянного резидента и попросить её выехать из Канады.

Spouse sponsorship to Canada is a part of bigger category — Family Class Sponsorship. Sponsoring spouses has a highest priority and got to be reviewed first of all others. Different embassies have a different processing times for the spouse sponsorship. In Moscow its about 6-8 months, in Kiev about 3-4 months. Сроки постоянно меняются — вы можете посмотреть на нашу неофициальную, но живую статистику здесь. But the situation changes and it crucially depends on how good you did your homework to prepare the documents. To help you understand the way how immigration officer is thinking we created «Manual: how to prepare sponsorship package».

There are three version of «spouse» that is accepted by Canada — oficially registered spouse (marriage), common law partner and conjugal partner. Usually you need less evidences of «relationship genuinity» in case if you are oficially married. For the Common Law there is additional required minimum length of relationship — 12 months. So you would have to prove this period. What about «conjugal» Russian version of CIC (Canada Citizenship and Immigration) web-site had a clear instruction — most likely you get rejection.

Sponsor and spouse (husband and wife) fill in Forms, acquire notarized copies of necessary documents (you can find information here), then sponsored spouse get police certificate and pass medical test, they collect evidences to prove their relationship is genuine, pay for the process and then send everything as a single package to Missisauga (Canada, Ontario) into central processing center. This center performs sponsor approval. It takes now three months (July, 2012). Processing times are changing, sometimes become smaller, sometimes bigger — you can check it on Immigration (CIC) web-site. Or you can check our informal page. Then documents are forwarded to the Canadian embassy in the country where sponsored spouse lives.

If your spouse was able to get to Canada, then you can apply to sponsor a spouse «Inside Canada». In this case the application and documents will not be forwarded to embassy (although rumors says they are forwarded anyway). Pros — spouse will live together with sponsor during the whole process. Cons — the application is reviewed by court (its my suggestion) and you can not apply for appelation (personally I doubt this is a serious cons); also the processing time become 12 months for the first part only (there will be second — 6 months to 3 years); high probability for an interview — up to 4-5 hours, a lot details, both sponsor and spouse are been questioned separately and answers compared; spouse most likely can not leave Canada till the end of process — if she travelled out and will not be able travel back then application rejected; spouse can not work, if she study then pays as international student ( 2-3 times more expensive); medical insurance — should be bought for yourself expense (this need confirmation).

Sometimes situation is different: from Forum, thanks Breeze:

From my personal experience and experience of other two girls.
Process time was from 7 to 12 months.
Interview was easy-simple, just for filling in confirmation Form. I have passed it today. The interview took about two minutes, interview questions were: are you still married, do you have children, have you been involved in crime, have you been deported, thats it. There was a croud of about 30 people – everybody been asked the same – all people were in the same room and approached officer one by one. This interview was a sort of «landing», where forms are filled in.
Nobody visited your home [SC: to verify you are really living together].
You do not need «landing» — PR-Card will be sent by mail after the interview.
The only [SC: problem] that you can apply for SIN after you will have recieved PR-Card. [SC: October, 2010]

Among answers to the message there was info about three other couples: they all were waiting about 2 years at that moment, all of them got very complicated double interview. One couple after interview were visited with inspection — are they really living together. [SC: info from 2009]

For applying for a sponsor visa for a spouse to Canada (or spouse with children) there is no formal requirements on minimum income for sponsor. But if sponsor does not work, then you need to show — what money do you have for living.
If spouse is sponsored with children and grand-children then there is a required minimum income.

Spouse can be sponsored (immigrate) with her (his) children. For children younger than 18 you must get permission from their other parent to immigrate to Canada. For children older than 22 [SC: 22 — is formal age, in reality — 18] you msut provide evidence that they are still financially dependent on immigrating spouse. Usually they are students of full-time (day-time) in some college or university. There is no maximum allowed age in official instructions, but it looks like it is 25 years old ( it means the child must be younger than 25 at the moment of submitting the documents to Missisauga).
