How To Bring Your Girlfriend to Canada 2022

By Ella Bergquist March 2, 2018 (Updated December 17, 2021) 3 min. read
Canadian Spousal Sponsorship

Dating long distance can be hard for a couple but the battle of getting your fiance into Canada is a whole other hurdle to get over. “How to get my fiance to Canada?” Is often a question our lawyers at VisaPlace get asked on a daily basis. Unfortunately, a fiance doesn’t fall under the family class as a loved one and therefore cannot be sponsored for permanent resident status. Your fiance may qualify for a temporary status such as a temporary resident visa or a Visitor Visa.

A great thing about obtaining a visitor visa is that if your fiance is a citizen of one of the exempt countries, she may not even require a temporary resident visa. She may even remain in Canada for up to six months at a time without being required to exit the country. If your fiance would like to stay in the country for longer that six months, she will need authorization to do so. You can find the list of countries exempt from visitor visas here: https://www.visaplace.com/canadian-immigration/temporary-visas/visitor-visa
There is also a way to sponsor your fiance if you have been in a common-law relationship by living together for a minimum of 12 months. There are many requirements to prove you have been living together and have been splitting the financial obligations of residing together for a minimum of 12 months. There are also a number of requirements on your part as well as financial undertakings that you will be responsible for as you are agreeing to sponsor her.

You may apply for common-law partner immigration if you have the forms of proof of:

Although there are a few options you may be able to take to bring your fiance to Canada, the easiest way is get married first. If you are married first, the process for bringing your wife to Canada is much easier than attempting to bringing your fiance.

When you get the opportunity to go to the US for work from abroad, then I would say VisaPlace would be your best option to get all your documents in place. My 5 star feedback is based on the help I received from Danielle Grbic as she was really professional, I would straight away ask for Danielle to be in charge of your process. From the time that Danielle took over my case I felt confident that it will go well and at the end it went smoother than expected. On my own I would never have been able to get this internal work transfer done as a L1 visa and was best for the professionals to take charge. After arriving in the US, Danielle was still happy to assist with documents and advise. A huge thanks to Danielle and VisaPlace

I spoke with Lilly last week and she’s incredible. Very informative and you can tell she definably cares about her job. She wasn’t pushy at all and she’s there to help you figure out if this service is right for you. I’d recommend contacting VisaPlace if you’re thinkin of traveling internationally and you have questions about the different types of permits.

I had a great experience with Andrew Diamond from The Visa Place. Andrew was very knowledgable and helped us every step of the way. When we had a discrepancy with my spouse’s Visa Andrew helped us navigate the system in the USA. He even offered to speak directly to the customs and border control officer to help us iron out the situation. Overall the experience was very good and smooth. I highly recommend Andrew and his services at The Visa Place.

Extremely satisfied with the professionalism, expertise, efficiency, speed and thoroughness at which my file was managed. Fadi & Danielle are true class acts! Their response times were fantastic (especially during a high-stress period), their quality of work was phenomenal, and their willingness to go the extra mile (without hidden costs, no less!) to prepare me for my work permit interview was unmatched. I strongly recommend VisaPlace to anyone seeking legal counsel as it relates to cross-border services. Highest Regards, Krista
