How do you apply for sponsorship?
The sponsorship application process consists of two steps. The first step is to apply for sponsorship with Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC). Once the sponsorship application is approved, the principal applicant must apply for the permanent residence of the sponsored person.
To apply for sponsorship, you must complete application forms and submit necessary documents, such as proof of your status as a Canadian citizen or permanent resident, proof of income and proof of your relationship to the sponsored person. You must also pay the application processing fee.
Once you submit your sponsorship application, you will have to wait for IRCC\’s decision. If your application is approved, you will receive a letter from IRCC letting you know that you can now apply for permanent residence for the sponsored person.
