I am a Canadian PR who soft landed about 2.5 years ago but lives in US because of my employment. I have ensured that I satisfy residency requirement. I will be moving to Canada very soon with a job offer and my spouse will accompany me. We plan to fly into Canada and have a moving company bring in the household items via road separately.
While I have a PR, my spouse has a visitor’s visa (we got married after I got my PR). We have visited Canada once in the last year for a few days. We intend to apply for my spouse’s PR via family class sponsorship once we move to Canada. I am concerned if my spouse will have any problems when we try to enter Canada at the airport since my spouse only has visitor’s visa and since we have clear intentions of moving into Canada permanently. We obviously will make sure that my spouse will only stay in the country legally (6 months or with allowed extensions), but I was wondering if we should be concerned about the border personnel not being convinced about this?
If anyone who has moved in the past has been in a similar situation or knows how this works I would greatly appreciate your advice and comments.
Thank you very much in advance!
