@LostInWonderland:  Can he get a job from a company that will sponsor him? Usually corporate sponsorship works differently

I’m not sure what your situation is but has he already done a working holiday visa? I am so sorry, I know exactly how you feel. I hope you find a way to deal with this stress. Only you know your situation though, and whether you end up going to England or you spend time apart for a while I wish you the best of luck

What looks bad on a resume is a couple of months of employment at multiple locations.  It means that you cannot keep a job for whatever reason.  If he works in England for a few months and then applies for jobs in Canada, it will be seen as a relocation necessity and hiring managers will understand. 

 

He just needs to explain in his interviews that he graduated, got a job, but really wants a career instead of a job.  Something to that effect.

 

Sorry you are going through this!

Horrible, isnt it?

I live with my FI for two years in Spain and now hes in the states as his job came to an end here and im still in Spain although I am British while I wait on my k1 visa. Ive heard things about the K3 visa, have you looked at that? I dont know what the rules are but you may be able to get married in another country and then go back and apply for him to come over, I dont know, I dont want to give you false hope but I would research it. Also if it does take that long for sponsorship maybe you want to try the k1 visa, it is meant to be one of the faster ways.

I will say that being away from FI is painful and horrible but it really wasnt the end of the world like I thought. I actually think it will strengthen our relationship in the end and its taught me things. Sometimes time goes fast other times slow but while waiting on the k1 we are having fun organising the wedding and it feels like were working working working towards a huge present. Then its a destination wedding in SC, ROAD TRIPPPP, living together again,which because we’ve been away from eachother for so long is gonna be new and like another honeymoon …. im soooo looking forward to it.

Whatever happens, you will both be fine

Have you looked into a fiance visa? I am not familiar with Canadian immigration, but I am with US and UK, and typically with a fiance visa, he would be able to come over and stay for three – six months, then you could get married. The nice thing about it is that you two wouldn’t have any time apart once married. 

That is tough news though. You definitely have to keep an eye on processing, because the time really can vary, and unfortunately it seems you’ve hit a time when it’s slowed. 

But the ultimate goal can still be achieved – you’ll still end up married and living in the same country. Keep focused on that and the fact that you won’t have to be apart again after the paperwork is all done and accepted.

Where does he study?  In Canada or UK?  I thought if he graduates from Canada, he will be elighble for 1 or 2-year working visa.  Once he get a job, he can apply for a permanent resident status through provincial norminee program.

I’m in the US and my S/O is immigrating to the US so I can’t give you advice about Canadian immigration policies. But we are going to be in the same situation, having to be seperated for awhile after marriage. At the very least, he’ll have to go back for his medical and visa interview, although we hope that he can visit for several months on his B2 visa while the initial paperwork is filed. It sucks thinking that we’ll be a married couple living in seperate countries, but once all is said and done, we’ll be together and we’ll know that we have done everything the legal and correct way. That’s what really matters, right?
