In this blog, you will learn about the process of the inland spousal sponsorship application.
How does Inland Spousal Sponsorship Work
Inland Spousal Sponsorship application requires the principal applicant (the person being sponsored) to remain in Canada for the period of time while the application is being processed. While in Canada, the principal applicant may apply for an open work permit to legally work in Canada. This is a big benefit of the inland sponsorship category. On the other hand, the sponsor, who invited the principal applicant to come to Canada, is also financially responsible for the both of them. This means the sponsor must prove he or she is financially stable enough to provide the basic necessities of life, such as food, water, shelter, security, and health care services that are not covered by public programs, to the principal applicant. However, prior to starting your inland spousal sponsorship application, you must understand that you cannot appeal an inland sponsorship application. That being said, if you want to have your application reconsidered, you will have to re-apply.
