Bringing a Relative Into the Country For Aid In a Medical Emergency

Asked by: 3474 views Canadian Immigration

Can a temporary visa be issued on the grounds of a medical emergency? My wife has fallen ill and would like very much for her mother to come to Canada to help out around the house. Unfortunately we are unable to sponsor her ourselves because we are here under work visas. What can we do?

    Unfortunately, as your are here temporarily, you cannot sponsor. Your wife’s mother would have to apply for her own temporary resident visa. However, these visas are difficult to acquire and have specific criteria in terms of what an immigration officer is looking for. The Firm would be happy to assess your options and do our best to get the care your wife needs. Kindly contact us for more information.
