Subject: where to have my parents' PR application processe
  Hi friends:
I am now sponsoring my parents, applying for their PR. They are now living with us in Canada with temporary visitor visas. In filling the Form of Application to sponsor and undertaking IMM1344, I have two options: to have the application for PR of my parents processed in Canada where my parents have been lawfully admitted for a year or to have it processed in China (the country of their nationality). I wonder in which country the process is faster? Please help!!! Many thanks for your advice in adance!!! Look forward to your advice.

I do not believe the 1 year legal status in Canada applies to family class sponsorships.

Nobody will dispute that 6 months + 6 months = one year.

Will you disagree that they were never admitted for one year?

They were admitted for (six months) and you applied for and obtained an extension of their visitor status.

I wonder why you gurus miss the main subject and speak of something which is not related to the question. Tell him if he can apply within canada or he should submitt the application in China.
Sorry, Julia i am not an expert on this however, i can advise you to contact CIC call centre and ask them the same question and let me tell you honestly, they are very helping. Because i have called them several times and i found them very helping. So give them a call and you may try on this forum but GURUS on this forum will alawys try to pick on you first and if you are lucky then you might get an answer for your question. Most of the people here are to their business and provide you a glimpse of solution and then leave you in the middle so that you can contact them and get paid consultation. So i wish you all the best!

actually, guru Roy did not miss the main subject. 6 months + 6 months might add up to a year but they were not admitted for 1 year at the beginning - therefore, 1 year notion does not apply.

Besides, inland one year application rules are for skilled worker applications not family class applications.

so, Mike, instead of taking pot shots, perhaps read the answers more carefully before spouting off. Julia was given an answer to a question that should not even be asked as it is not even an option.

as for CIC call centre - ask around how many times they have offered incorrect advice. LOTS.

I read the question and answers both carefully. His main question is: which application choice is faster, In Canada or China? His parents have the visa for one year only which is obvioulsy 6+6 (if they get an aextension) so that was not the question. Now you are telling that inland one year is for skilled workers not family calls, you did not say this before. May be we need to read the question carefully before answering. If incanada sponsorship is not an option then you should have told her that, my dear julia incanada application is not an option for you so you apply from China and do not worry about fast or slow because you have no other option. If you think i am taking pot shots then please read her question again and tell me, what was she asking, my dear GURU.

what more do you need than ´I do not believe the 1 year legal status in Canada applies to family class sponsorships.´

Well, i am not picking on you Guru, i am just trying to say this is not the answer of the question she is asking. You said she should not even have asked this question. When people are not clear about something then they ask all kind of question. What Julia was trying to ask is that her parents are able to stay in Canada for a year or more so she sould submitt the application in Canada or China? She thought if the process is faster in China or Canada so that hen she could submitt their application and get PR before the expiry of their legal status in Canada which 6+6. Now mentioning their one year thing in our replies is completely un-necessary and not required. Sponsorship applications do go to Missisauga, Canada, if you know. And this is what she wanted to know that if she should submitt application in Canada or in China. JULIA, IF YOU READING THE ANSWER, PLEASE TELL IF THIS IS WHAT YOU WERE ASKING OR NOT? AND DID OUR GURUS REPLIES HELPED YOU????????????

remember, all advice here is free. if it is not delivered in the manner you had in mind - what would you like, a refund???

the best advice is to go to the CIC website. look up guidelines for family class sponsorship. look at non spousal sponsorships. look at the forms and instructions. it tells you exactly what you have to do, where you have to send it etc.

if you choose to read - it is all there. that advice is free too.
