My wife has a Canadian PR that’s valid up to June 2021, she did her landing in June 2016. I have applied for my PR and hopefully if everything goes well I will have it by mid 2019. We both live in US and planning to move to Canada in 2020.
Clearly if we move in 2020 she will not meet the residency criteria of staying in Canada for 2 years.
I have sorted it down to 3 options
- Cancel her current PR and apply for a new Express Entry.
- Take the risk and enter Canada and after I’m there I can sponsor her. (I’m not sure if she will still need to give up her PR for me to sponsor her)
- Apply for her sponsorship when i receive my PR while we are outside Canada by showing that we have a convincing reason to move to Canada.
I’m not sure which of them is most feasible and if I’m missing out something. Advice appreciated.
Also, Will there be a problem while entering as the officer can figure out that she cannot meet the residency requirements?
Thanks in Advance
