Dependent Child Visa

    Individuals who apply for permanent residence, work, study or visiting Canada are allowed to include their dependent children on their application. However, there can be chances that an individual in Canada wants to sponsor their dependent children to come and live with them. For such purpose, Canada provides the Dependent Children Sponsorship under Family Class Visas. Let us check the eligibility requirements for this visa and other details.

    The dependent child can also gain permanent residence status in Canada. For that purpose, the sponsor must apply for sponsorship of their child and at the same time, the dependent child must apply for permanent residence. Then, the child shall be able to study and work in Canada.

    Dependent Child Visa Processing Time

    The processing time of the application of a Dependent Child Visa is around 11 months. This processing time includes the time it would take for getting the biometrics done and also the time that it would take to assess the sponsor’s documentation (it is generally 23 days). This processing time mostly depends on whether the application submitted is complete or not and how many pending applications are there with CIC.
