The Canadian government has revealed that the processing time for its Outland spousal or common law sponsorship program that comes under immigration program of Canada has been significantly minimized.

Till the end of the year 2015, processing time for applications under this program was listed  and by this year the way of listing of processing time was changed.  Now the processing times will be listed by countries from where the application is made.

This change has let the couples to take better decision on taking sponsorship programs and it might also permit sponsored individuals to get Canada PR quicker than before. 

The time of processing for certain nations, that includes the time it takes for  making initial assessment of sponsor are now fewer than  a year. This news has came as a big relief for many citizens of Canada, PRs and their overseas spouses and common legal partners who seek to get reunited in Canada as soon as possible.

The countries includes Australia, Spain, France, Belgium, Tunisia, Morocco, Algeria, New Zealand, Brazil, Peru, Iran, Portugal , Israel, Poland, Trinidad and Tobago, Taiwan, Switzerland and Ukraine.

For many nations, the processing time is one year or a little longer. Last month, the latest liberal Canadian government announced in its immigration plans that it is planning to raise the number of latest permanent residents who come to Canada through its category of Family Class, that includes spouses and common legal partners. This factor might has the impact of further minimizing the processing time of applications.

Outland application is usually made when the sponsored partner is residing outside of Canada. However, the outland applicants could still remain in Canada and apply through this Outland program and might be allowed to travel in and out of Canada throughout the process of application. Applications for Outland are processed through visa office that serves the nation of origin of the applicant or where they has been legally enrolled for minimum of one year.
