I have already been to this site. I am looking to know if under the circumstances that I have described if it is possible for my wife to apply for a work permit at the point of entry in to Canada because I am a full time student in an accredited Canadian university or if she needs to wait the 5 months for the Manila office that takes care of Japan. Her situation is different I feel because she is not simply applying for a work visa but coming to live with me who already has a study permit. If there is no need for her to wait and she can simply apply at the boarder when she arrives then we will do that.
Ok, that clears that up. The last part is because I have already arrived and she is still abroad I will not be accompanying her in the airport. Should that matter if she can show we are married and I have a study permit? I mean, do I have to accompany her? I'm already here with a valid study permit so that doesn't seem like an option. The option you are suggesting is that she applies for the work permit after she arrives to visit? Am I to understand the process for her is to get a visitor visa at the airport and apply to change it to a work permit after she arrives? You mentioned that she doesn't have to apply for the permit the ordinary way and I guess I didn't understand what that meant exactly.
