Subject: Bring Fiance to Canada
  Hi all-
I am 22 yrs old, Canadian citizen. I have been with my fiance for 5 years, but he is currently living in Germany illegally. He is from Kosovo, and has a Serbian/Montenegro passport. We are wanting to get married, but not sure what is the best way. Would it be best for us to get married in Kosovo and then him come to Canada with me? Would he need a visitors visa or can he automatically come with me because i am Canadian? Or is it easier if he gets a visa first and then we get married in Canada? What happens if he is denied a visa? HELP!!

try and get him a visitors visa. do not tell them that you are planning a wedding. If he gets here... marry him and sponsor him from within Canada.
If you do not get a visitors visa, your only option is to go there, marry him, return to Canada (without him) and begin the sponsorship process.

If i sponsor him, does that mean the sponsorship will moreorless automatically go through because we are married? What happens if they turn the app down? Does he need any special papers to marry me in Canada, can you do that on just a visitors visa?

I am not sure what sort of documents he might need. check with the city clerk to find out what documents are required for a marriage.

as for a guarantee... there is none. he must still pass a medical and police check. Married to a Canadian or not, if he has a criminal record or his health is a strain on the Canadian health system - you have a challenge. You also must qualify to sponsor him. You can find your qualification requirements on the CIC website.

From one woman to another a word of advice...in your own mind be absolutely sure that he will pass the police and medical BEFORE you marry him. Also be sure that you are not his ticket into Canada. Sponsorship means you are responsible for him for 3 years. Trust your brain before your trust your heart. If he gets angry that you ask questions... see it as a red flag. Do not put yourself in the situation that others find themselves - married with a partner that is not allowed into the country.

good luck to you.

Well i know he is coming to be with me, because he doesn´t even want to come to Canada. He just wants to be where I am, and it was too hard for me to obtain German papers. I´m sure he will pass the medical, but i don´t know about the police clearance. He was deported once, does that matter, or is it just a criminal record? He doesn´t have a criminal record. Thanks so much for your help!

yes, deportation matters. You might want to check with an immigration consultant on the implications.

I am going to risk being an old mother hen...please be very cautious. decisions made for love have a very nasty habit of being turned into disaster. the last thing I would wish for you is for your man to hate his life in Canada and it is all ´your´ fault because you made him come here. all the love in the world does not hold that kind of situation together.

I have seen the broken pieces first hand. it is not very pleasant.

what is the easiest and quickest way to bring your fiancee to Canada without to much redtape. Is it any faster for me to go there or them to come here to marry? She is from Serbia.

Me too I'm in a bit of situation and need advice (in reply to: Bring Fiance to Canada)
Hi I´m a 20 year old man and have met the woman of my life. She is from Japan, and we decided to fiancee each other 3 months ago. Now I´m not too sure when is the best time where is the best place (Japan or Canada). After long conversations she told me she wants to live here, but still I don´t know what to do for visas or immigration or citizenship. Right now I´m in need on some information, for example can she get some kind or working permit (right now she´s just on a holiday visa so she can´t work or study and she sometimes finds that the days are really long). If anyone could give me some information I would really appreciate it. Thank you.

I am a U.S. citizen and I have been in Canada on a visa for 8 years and have been with my fiance for all 8 of those years. We have a baby together who is now 1. And there is no doubt that I want to spend the rest of my life with her living in Canada. It´s beautiful here.

I have applied for citizenship and will be scheduling to take the test soon. I hear you have to score 100% on it? Wow I don´t even think I know a Canadian born citizen that knows all the answers to some of these questions. Anyway, I´m going to study hard and do my best.

My question however is, If my fiance and I get married here in Canada, does that or could that effect my options of becoming a Canadian citizen? Since we can prove we have been together so long, and now have a baby together, would this by any chance make the process easier for me in any way?

Either way I will be marrying my beautiful Canadian wife, and trying my hardest to pass the test so that I can bring up my little girl in the only country in the world that I want to live in. I am just in search of a little more information on how marriage would effect my situation.

Thank you in advance for your time and replies!
