Open work permit for everyone; inlanders or outlanders

Canadian Sponsoring Family: Open work permit is now also available for overseas applications 


Now Open work permit is for everyone even the outlanders (people residing outside Canada). Reuniting families is one of the important parts and strategies of Immigration Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC). The core motive behind this is to unite more families and aid them to be together.

Partners, Spouses, and dependents of permanent residents, temporary workers, Citizens of Canada, and students who are already in Canada are now eligible for an Open Work Permit.

Formerly, the open work permit was only available to applicants who were already residing in Canada on Temporary Residence Visa or through inland sponsorship. According to the new measures now outland sponsors or people who are applying from outside Canada are also eligible for open work permits.

Common-law partners, spouses, conjugal partners, and dependent children who are over 18 years old are family members.

IRCC aims to process every spousal sponsorship application within 12 months.
