Hello,

Hope you are doing well!! Did you submit your documents?

I have the similar situation. I’m in the process of collecting all the required documents.
Have couple questions, would you be able to help me.

  1. Cic profile is now allowing to add the additional document and it seems only one single PDF can be attached and less than 5 MB. I feel all the documents and photos add up to more than 5GB. What are the options if we cannot upload all of them in 1 file.

  2. Please let me know if you have any specific format for the questionnaire that the couple have to answer.

Thanks

Hello! Thank you for the informative timeline. I wanted to ask if you finally got a decision on your application and how long it took from when you upload your spouse’s documents.

Thank you
