Factors taken into consideration for Dual Intent of Overseas Spousal Sponsorship

Canadian Immigration understands the value of a family member specially a spouse or a common law partner. This is the reason that they do not object any dual intent for such cases. Dual intent means that a spouse can show that they want to visit their partner, residing in Canada, on a visitor visa while their spousal sponsorship PR application is in process. However, in order to do so a spouse or partner will have to satisfy an officer on a balance of probabilities that they will, if their permanent residence application is refused, leave Canada at the end of their authorized period of stay, officers may issue a temporary resident visa. The concerned officer will consider the following factors, but not limited to, while authorizing a TRV to the applicant in this case:

  • whether the sponsorship application has been approved
  • whether the application for permanent residence has received stage one approval
  • to what extent the applicant has retained ties in their home country
  • what the applicant’s plan is, should their application for permanent residence be refused
