How to Sponsor a Spouse From Israel

Bringing your Israeli spouse to Canada through spousal sponsorship involves a step-by-step process. Understanding the requirements and procedures can help you navigate the process smoothly. With the assistance of an immigration lawyer, you can ensure that all necessary documentation is prepared accurately and increase the chances of a successful application.

Step 1: Filing for Spousal Sponsorship Canada

To sponsor your Israeli spouse for Canadian permanent residency, you will need to file for spousal sponsorship. This involves submitting the appropriate application forms, supporting documents, and fees to Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC). Working closely with your immigration lawyer, you can ensure that all forms are completed correctly, and all required documents are included to demonstrate the authenticity of your relationship.

Step 2: Visitor Visa for your Israeli Spouse

While the spousal sponsorship application is being processed, your Israeli spouse can apply for a visitor visa to stay in Canada. This visa allows them to be with you while awaiting the outcome of the sponsorship application. Your immigration lawyer can guide you through the process of applying for the visitor visa, ensuring that all necessary documents are included and that the application is properly prepared.
