Canada immigration authorities considering tightening Marriage visa rules

Canadian immigration authorities are considering some stern rules tightening the Canadian marriage visa rules to protect people from marriage fraud. This came into light when one Canadian from Victoria claimed herself as a victim of marriage fraud. She said to met her husband Sunny Kanda while on her holiday in India and married him a month later. She helped him obtain a Canadian visa and then he moved to Canada without informing his wife. She is calling for her husband’s Canadian spousal visa to be removed and for him to be deported as she believes he used her simply to enable him to move to Canada from India.

The Immigration authorities are considering to put newly landed sponsored spouses on a probationary period to see whether they’re actually interested in pursuing the marriage or not for the long run.
