  I was wondering if I can bring my wife to canada on a tourist visa to canada and then apply for her PR under the family class category. I already have a PR. I am thinking of this solution since I have heard that processing of appllications from wihin canada is faster. my wife currently resides in India.

all advice is highly appreciated.

The reason why I asked is because it seems that from your respective visa office, New Delhi in this case if I´m not wrong, the case takes at the most 4 months to complete from outside! That´s amazing, I don´t believe it...

Well, my advice is that you ask other Indians their experience, just to confirm if it really takes 4 months. If you decide to go from outside. Check here http://www.cic.gc.ca/english/department/times-int/2003-Q4/05-fc-spouses.html#asia

However, if you want to be at her side all the time without being separated. Try to get a visitor´s visa and apply from within Canada. It will take longer but You will be together. Once she is in Canada, she can apply for a work permit, but there is no guarantee that she will get one.

It´s up to you.

You better confirm that CIC report on timeline because 4 months seem awfully short time!!! Please, talk to a fellow Indian who sponsored his wife.

Spousal Sponsorship applications processed outside of Canada generally take a shorter amount of time to be finalized then those processed within Canada.

"In-Canada" applications first receive Approval in Principle (which takes 5-6 months from when the Case Processing Centre in Vegreville receives the completed application). After Approval in Principle it can take anywhere from a few weeks to sometimes over a year for permanent residence to be granted or denied.

"Outside-Canada" applications are generally seen as a priority by most visa offices, so they usually tend to get pushed through alot quicker. From what I´ve gathered, the processing times published on the CIC website are pretty accurate when it comes to straight forward applications - and in some cases they tend to be overestimates. So, I´d be inclined to believe 2-4 month processing time listed for spousal applications processed in New Delhi. However, like Ozz said, you´ll probably want to double check with someone who has had a spousal sponsorship application processed by New Delhi to confirm whether or not it is accurate.
