Subject: Asking for HELP on Marriage Questions!!!
  Two international students separately applied immigration (sw category) more than 1 year ago and now are waiting for medical exam for each. What will happen to them if they want to get married now or later after done the medical part but before landing paper?

Besides informing immigration office timely, will their cases be merged or kept processing separately? Will the whole process be delayed or their applications have to be re-started or re-queue up again?

Thank you for any inputs!

They won´t be merged unless you put in an application for them to be - since you both applied more than a year ago I suggest you wait it out separately as you´d have to start over again (I think).

You must inform the visa post of any change in your marital status. That includes common-law relationships.

Thank you very much for the suggestions, I truly appreciate them.

We are studying and living in different cities, very far away from each other though both are in Canada, so we just spend holidays and vacations together, and common-law relationship thus should not be suitable for us to report, am I correct on this issue?

One more question, as my study permit is going to expire, after it expires I want to hunt for a job instead of extending the study permit , can I apply open work permit once I get married? if I can and get it through but my immigration status is still pending, will my boyfriend and my own immigration application still be dealt seperately, or have to be merged at that stage?

In my understanding, to hold an open work permit is still a legal status to be in Canada, so I in behalf of myself instead of a married couple together still satisfy the requirements to apply skill worker immigration in Canada, am I right?

Thank you again!

Do you mean - When I get married am I entitled to an open work permit? The answer is no. I think there are details on CIC´s site for changing a study permit to a work permit. Why don´t you just wait until you both get residency and then get married? Or why don´t you call CIC as your case is quite complicated. I do know that if you are in Toronto, Montreal or Van, you can only get a 1 year work permit; anywhere else is 2 years. You are right that you wouldn´t be classed as common law - for that, you must have lived together in a relationship for 12 months continuously.

Thank you so much for your reply. You are right, I will call cic to figure out more, then I will get back to this forum.

Mostly I think what you mention is a post-graduate work permit, but what I mean is an open work permit, which allows me to accompany my spouse while stay legally in Canada. What I heard is I can apply it after I get married and apply a visitor visa, the open work permit will allow the applicant to work under any job category without HRDC confirm, and it can be applied before holding an employment letter. If I am wrong, maybe someone could point out to me again, thank you!
