About Canada IMM 1344
Application to sponsor your spouse. You must attach a scanned copy of the birth certificate(s) of your spouse if the form does not contain both the signed and official copy of an original Canadian Birth Record. If you are not sure about the state of the certificate, then request a photograph of both you and your spouse. Attach additional documents (additional supporting information) about your spouse. You can attach documents to the application package for your spouse for example: marriage license of your spouse with his/her photo (if your spouse has such a license), the marriage registration certificate issued by the province where you reside, a letter from your church stating that your spouse is eligible to be married in its churches and a letter from your ministry stating that your spouse is eligible to be married. If your spouse has died, you can also attach a certificate authorizing the sponsor's spouse to act as their next of kin, a letter from the church where the spouse died saying that the spouse is not eligible to be married, and a receipt from the sponsor confirming that the spouse did not marry before. Note: A spouse cannot file an application for his or her spouse. If the sponsor's spouse died, then the sponsor can submit a letter from the church where his or her spouse died confirming that the spouse is not eligible to be married (see “Additional document” below) and a receipt from the sponsor confirming that the spouse did not marry before. The birth registration certificate of your spouse will be required only if the form does not contain both the signed and official copy of an original Canadian Birth Record. If the birth record is not provided, ask the office to attach a copy of the original certificate. In addition, if your spouse's certificate has recently expired, or you find a discrepancy on the certificate, you can request a replacement certificate that will show a later birthdate. You can find out more on the eligibility of birth certificates and certificates issued by provincial/territorial bodies (such as a registry of civil status, or registration with a government department or agency) in the Canadian Vital Statistics (Births, Deaths and Marriages) Regulations. Read more about requirements for additional supporting documents on the form requirements at the “Important information” section of the MM 1344 PDF application package. If your sponsor is in the United States and if one or both of the following situations applies, then the United States Embassy or Consular will need to make an application for a Marriage-Based Immigration Waiver to the Canadian government.

Music hi thanks for joining me again in this video I'll be discussing some of the new requirements that were implemented for the spousal sponsorship application it got launched in January 2022 the whole reason why they made a few minor changes is because a lot of clients were getting a little annoyed with CIC because processing times for spousal sponsorship haiku are getting extremely lengthy so because of that Immigration Canada decided to make a few amendments and hopefully expedite the applications so in the past prior to January 2022 applications for inland could take about a year and a half to two years applications overseas like in Islamabad or New Delhi or Manila would take over two years so because clients are getting frustrated because they were not being reunited with their family, and they got a lot of complaints CIC decided to make a few tweaks here and there to hopefully expedites a thousand applications now with the new requirements as of January 2022 they promise and put that in quotations because you never know what the government that all applications whether it's filed inland or overseas should be finalized within 12-month period now I right now we're in October 2022 so I cannot tell you if the government of Canada will keep its promise, but that's what they're staying so whether we file a spousal application or common-law a conjugal inside or outside they promise that they will take about 12 months some of the few changes that is very important to note with us with an application the spousal application is that they require you to now mandatory include joint documentation so if you're filing inland I recommend that you include three joint documents could be any documentation could be bank accounts could be financial documents could be property so long as you have three joint documents and if its outside include one to two joint documentation I know I've heard it from all my clients is not easy especially if you're doing an overseas application it's very difficult to come up with joint documentation, but you really have to try very hard and definitely include it because if you don't your application will get returned the other thing that they're very, very finicky about is your passport size photos so when you do the passport size photos make sure you take a ruler and measure the length and the height of the pictures as well as the length of the face because if you don't, and it's if it's not completely accurate by the millimeter they will also return your application I find it is this just from personal experience that if your application is not a hundred and ten percent accurate if you miss a small thing as a postal code on a form, or it's your passport photos is you know of by a millimeter or you forgot to you know sign it in blue ink or.
