Canada Spouse Visa Processing time for all Countries

I came across lot of questions recently regarding to Canada spouse visa processing time, so I decided to publish this article detailing the processing time of Canada Spouse visa for assessment of the person being sponsored (applicant) and that of the sponsor.

Before I go detail on the Canada spouse visa processing time, I would love to inform you that the Canada spouse visa falls under the Family sponsorship program. However, the processing time is for both spouse and common-law partners.

I advise you go through our previous guide on Canada immigration visa programs to know more about the Family sponsorship program and how to also complete the process.

The Canada spouse visa processing time published below is categorized for Africa & Middle East, Asia & Pacific, Europe and America countries. However, the processing time for spouse living inside Canada, both sponsor and person being sponsored takes about 16 months and another 10 months for medical checks, background checks, security checks and other verifications.

If applicant (person being sponsored) lives outside Canada, then you can make use of the below processing time tabulated below.
