Australia Immigration- Sub Class 190Family SponsorshipApril 30, 2022by prominent.contentIndians will be the top applicants for Spouse and Partner visas in 2021.

  • Canada has welcomed immigrants from a variety of countries during the last two years. And it is believed that there is a massive migration from India, with a massive increase in the number of spouses and partners immigrating in recent years.
  • However, according to a 2015 report by Immigration, Refugees, and Citizenship Canada (IRCC),
  • Many more Filipino wives and partners filed to become permanent residents than Indians.
  • Later in the years, Indians surpassed these figures and rose to first place in bringing wives and partners to Canada by 2021.
  • In 2021, around 10,705 Indian wives and partners became permanent residents, accounting for 17 percent of the total population of 64,340.
  • Following that are the United States, the Philippines, and China, which were also the top achievers in terms of bringing their spouses and partners to become permanent residents.
  • Canada’s immigration levels anticipate inviting and allowing 80,000 partners, spouses, and children to enter the country this year, 2022.
  • By incorporating parents and grandparents into the programme, this goal has been raised to 1,000,000.

Reunification of spouses:

During the covid-19 epidemic, the merger of spouses and partners was a major driver for increased migratory streams.

Statement by Immigration Minister Sean Fraser:

“This is one of the streams that were first immigration processing that has been returned to the 12-month service level for processing,” said Immigration Minister Sean Fraser.

Other immigration processing systems, such as federal high-skilled workers, continue to take a lengthy time to process service standards. Applicants for Family Sponsorship can check their status online. Canada has recently created a new application tracker to examine the status of immigration files in this procedure.

During the original introduction in February, this tracker was made available to partners, spouses, and dependant children seeking permanent residency. This tracker is now used by the dependents, spouses, and partners categories to monitor the status of their applications.

In the words of Canada’s Immigration Minister, Fraser…

Fraser, Sean “This new tool is made available to verify the progress of an application in processing for partners, spouses, and dependent children.” And we’re working on other trackers like this for various programmes.”
