Living in a foreign country away from your spouse is hard for a lot of people. It can take on them mentally and even cause depression. This is why immigrant spousal sponsorship is of great importance. It’s their ticket to reunite with their loved ones and be at peace mentally and emotionally. If you have been stressing about why the decision hasn’t come and need clarity, then checking on the application can help calm your nerves. Learn how you can do that in this post.
Disruptions Due to the Pandemic
Because of the pandemic, a large number of applications are stuck in the process. As of July 2022, more than 2.7 million people from different immigration streams await clarity on a decision that shapes the course of their lives moving forward.
Create an IRCC Account
To make an IRCC secure account, you first need to send in a request to the Canadian immigration authority to grant you access to the information. The officials will then send an acknowledgement of receipt (AOR) letter through the mail to the address, which will enable you to make an IRCC online account. This will link the paper-based application to the portal and streamline the process for both parties. Immigration officials can let you know about the others materials they need to access your case as well as convey information about the application status.
An easier way is to use the newly launched online tool for checking application status. The portal which was launched in 2022, makes it easy to track children and spousal applicants online and helps speed up the process and minimize delays. It’s also more effective compared to paper-based applications. Both representatives and applicants can use the tool.
