Subject: Timeline for Spouse from China
Does anyone know the approximately the timeline for sponsoring my wife from China? I am a Canadian citizen. The visa office the will be processing the application is in Beijing. Anyone have experience with the Beijing visa office?

Almost the fastest there is. Go to www.cic.gc.ca click on How long to process my application. You will see an average of three months http://www.cic.gc.ca/english/information/times/international/05-fc-spouses.asp

Then add at least one month for Mississauga CPC to approve you as a sponsor.

MAKE SURE YOU PROVE YOUR RELATIONSHIP AND DO NOT MAKE A MISTAKE ON THE FORMS BECAUSE THEY LOVE TO REFUSE IN BEIJING.

Hi Roy, you sound like you know what you´re talking about!

My friend in China is about to send in her TRV application to the Beijing office (visitor´s visa).
We spent a lot of time trying to figure out which office would be better to apply to.

Would you say that we´d have a better chance of success going through the Hong Kong office?

TIA

Ya, my wife and I have been saving and collecting evidences. We have over 3 years of complete phone records, thousands of pictures, and over 10 thousand pages of online MSN chat. I do hope it´s possible to waive the interview but it´s unlikely.

I hope to waive the interview not because my marriage is fake, please don´t get me wrong, but rather, I don´t want my wife to go through that hostility from the immigration officers and answer all those embarrassing personal questions. Honestly, how many people would like to openly talk about what they privately do with their spouse in their bedroom? I don´t want my wife´s first impression about Canada is that the whiteys is discriminatory against the yellowys.

Those questions about Canada are, I think, ridiculous. I´ve been in Canada for 30 years, and I have no freaking idea the cost of living. Why should I care? I go to work and do what I can and make as much money as I can, then pay as much tax as I´m obligated to, and then whatever is left, I buy foods and water with it. It doesn´t matter how costly it is to live in Canada. I´m already here, and I have no choice but to pay for it.

Besides, my wife married me, so she wants to come here. She´s not coming here as an investor or entrepreneur that would require her to understand the Canadian economy.

My wife and I do have a future plan. My wife works as a beautician in a plastic surgery hospital in China, so we´ve been thinking that we´ll be able to open a small spa somewhere in BC.

I have already warned my wife that she will most likely go through that horrible process with the interviewer. It´s gonna suck but it´s something that nobody can change.
