People who have permanent residency in Canada or have become Canadian citizens, as long as they are over 18 years old, meet the requirements for relatives, and have an annual income that meets the qualifications for guarantee. During their stay in Canada, they can guarantee their parents, spouses and accompanying children or adoption under 22 years of age. Children, grandparents and grandparents immigrate to Canada.
If the applicant is already in Canada, in principle, the applicant must be in Canada during the entire application period. Applicants must have legally entered and legally resided temporary resident status when entering the form, and maintain their legal status during the entire period of waiting for the application result. Those without legal status cannot apply for permanent residence as a spouse in Canada. On the contrary, the applicant can apply for family reunification immigration abroad.
After the visa application is successful, the applicant and his legal children obtain immigration status at the same time, and have the same human rights, medical services, relief benefits, education benefits and unlimited employment rights as Canadian citizens. Once the annual income meets the application requirements, the reunion immigration application of the parents must be approved.
- Sponsored by a permanent resident or Canadian citizen
- There is no income requirement for reunion immigration applications for spouses and accompanying children or adopted children under the age of 22
- Parents or spouses must have enough income to process the application. The income depends on the number of family members and the area where they live.
If you are an applicant, you must first apply to become a guarantor before you can apply for permanent residency for your spouse or children. Please remember that these two applications must be made at the same time, and you must provide the following proof:
- The guarantor must be a Canadian citizen or permanent resident.
- The sponsor must live in Canada during the application period.
- The guarantor is over 18 years old.
- You must prove that you have the ability to provide financial support for your sponsored relatives for a certain period of time. The exact period of time (commitment period) depends on the age of the person you sponsor, your relationship with you, and your place of residence. For spouses or legal partners, the commitment period is three years. Dependent children under the age of 13 or between the ages of 13 and 21 promise a period of 10 years or until the age of 25 (whichever is earlier). The parent’s commitment period is 20 years.
- No criminal record and financial responsibility: all immigration loans, performance bonds and court order payments are paid on time.
- There is no income requirement for reunion immigration applications for spouses and accompanying children or adopted children under 22 years of age.
- After the application is successfully accepted, the sponsored person’s legal children obtain immigration status at the same time, and have the same human rights, medical services, relief benefits, education benefits, and unrestricted employment rights as Canadian citizens.
- Once the annual income meets the application requirements, the reunion immigration application of the parents must be approved.
