The two main categories of Spousal Sponsorship Program.

Outland Sponsorship

We consider Spousal sponsorship as Outland Sponsorship if the partner being sponsored is outside Canada. The visa Office of the applicant’s home country receives and processes the outland applications. Though the outland applicant can be in Canada and apply as outland applicant.
