So many times I have thought about this process I am going through to sponsor my wife to Canada, and all that comes to mind is what a HUGE JOKE the Canadian Immigration is… You have people that deliberately deceive the system and they seem to get rewarded for it and others like my self who go through all the So-Called proper channels and am still waiting for her to receive a letter that says she can now get her visa to come to Canada.
My having to even go though an appeal hearing is a joke too when you look at the “FACTS” of my application and the appeal hearing itself only lasting 20 minutes for them to approve it. Why now has it taken 2 whole months since that decision for my wife’s application to be allowed to proceed, why are we still waiting for a damn letter which can’t take more than 10-15 days to arrive to my wife. once she receives the letter she will need to go through another medical exam and then await yet another who knows how long for them to send her passport back to her with the visa papers.
I see no excuse for it to take as long as it is taking considering all that has happened, starting with the lady that took my wife’s original interview back in January 2006 being apparently fired from her position but when asked about it they say she quit. She (the interviewer) did NOT do her job as she was supposed to instead she pushed her own “Indian” values upon my wife’s case and denied her a visa to come to Canada at the time of the interview. the Appeal hearing took a whole 20 minutes for the Immigration council and Appeal board member to approve my appeal. this whole process baffles me to no end.
So what do I think of Canadian Immigration and their procedures..?? Just a HUGE JOKE on burden on the TAX Payers of this country and an even bigger burden on those separated spouses that have to wait years for something that sh0ould take no longer than a month to go through. In fact My wife should have been allowed to come with me back to Canada while this stupid and unnecessary immigration process was completed. Just like the spouse of a visiting partner is allowed to stay in the country had my wife and I been married here in Canada, and she was visiting she would have been allowed to stay with me till this whole process was complete. Instead she and I have now been apart since we married back in Dec 22, 2004 other than the time I spent on visits, it’s just not the same as having her here with me.
Immigration Canada needs to do MORE to avoid keeping “REAL” Marriages from suffering while the FAKE and DELIBERATE ones that cheat the system are allowed to prosper. WHAT A JOKE!!!!
