New Tech to Speed Up Spousal and Partner Sponsorship Wait Times

By Casey June 4, 2024 2 min. read

IRCC wants to make it easier and faster for families to reunite in Canada. They plan to do so by using new computer technology to process applications for spouses and partners who want to come to Canada. This technology will help check applications more quickly, so people won’t have to wait as long to be together.

Who Will Benefit from These Faster Applications?

These changes will be used to check applications for spouses, common-law partners, and conjugal partners. This means if you’re applying to bring your partner to Canada, these new tools will be used to process your application faster.

How Will These Tools Speed Up Applications?

Keep in mind, immigration officers will still have the final say. But ultimately, this means faster decisions and less waiting for families!

Will These New Tools Be Fair and Safe?

Absolutely! The government wants to make sure these tools are fair and protect everyone’s privacy. They’ve done checks to make sure the tools are safe and won’t cause any problems.

How Much Will These Tools Help?

It’s a bit early to say for sure, but similar tools have worked well in the past. For example, when they used technology to process visas for spouses visiting Canada, almost everyone got a decision in just 30 days! So, these new tools are very promising for families who want to be together faster.

My experience with Visaplace has been excellent. I’ve received prompt and accurate assistance at a very fair price. Fadi and Mansi were knowledgeable, professional and extremely courteous. Immigration issues are not easy to deal with. Having VisaPlace behind you certainly makes the various processes so much easy to deal with.

Mansi was a helpful guide through the complex procedures involved in my application. I can’t imagine trying to get through the process alone. I highly recommend the services of VisaPlace to anyone needing help getting the proper documents to attend school in Canada

This firm is effective. The people who work here are knowledgeable and attentive. From the first consultation right up until my case was resolved, they made sure I knew what was happening. It’s not an exaggeration to say that without their help, I probably would not have gained entry into Canada.

Bansuri was very helpful in explaining the reason she was asking me certain questions about my upcoming appointment. She was polite, clear and persuasive – excellent qualities for someone who does her job, and really a great first impression for The visa Place. Thank you, Bansuri.

My interaction with Brenda was cordial and professional, she understood what I needed and made sure that I got all my questions answered. Dumb thing to say maybe but I felt her smile coming through the phone. Thank you Brenda!

Thank you for guiding us through this complicated process. Although the first part of our process with Visaplace we felt was slow, they turned it around. In the end we had a good experience with their attorney, she was determined to get it right and deserves to be commended.
