  • Is Record Solemnization Marriage Valid For Immigration Purposes

    Hello I need to invite my mother in law to Canada in April 2021.

    I am married as of Nov 30 2020

    She has a valid Visa and according to the immigration rules she is allowed to canada with covid rules.

    However, for proof of immigration that she is my mother-in-law, is a marriage certificate needed (as it’s a very long delay to get one and my wife is not PR). Is the record of solemnization of marriage valid for immigration purposes?

    Dear Amandeep

    The only proof these days accepted by IRCC, is an official marriage certificate for immigration application. But your mother-in-law is just seeking a travel permission. I would say you should try once by using record of solemnization for your marriage. Attach the proof of your marriage certificate application and all other supporting documents. You need to sign a statutory declaration for your mother-in-law stating you will take her quarantine responsibility.

    Hello I thought immediate family members dont need to sign the imm 006 form?

    That when they enter Canada they are asked to provide the Arrive Can screenshot of their receipt.

    You are correct that immediate family members fo Canadian citizens and Permanent residents do not need to apply for any permission and to fill any IMM0006 form. I said they need provide a quarantine plan for visiting immediate family members which is made as a statutory declaration. ArriveCan app is social application to get account of the person required to isolate which helps in assisting their health and symptoms for the next 14 days. It also provide the purpose of covid cases in the surroundings of the person.
