How long it would take to get spouse open work permit visa
Hi All,

Currently I am in Washington, USA on my H1B visa.

Expecting for some reply. I have below queries,

1) I applied for my spouse open work permit visa on 12th Dec 2016. My husband works in Canada on his closed work permit. But till now I see no update on my application. I checked for processing time, it is bit confusing for me as for spouse visa it is 12months and work permit is 14weeks. Which processing time holds good for me?
What is general waiting period to hear from CIC?

2) Is it possible to move my application in Express entry? If so how can I do that?

3) I have also got job offer from one of multinational company in Canada recently. I have not uploaded my offer letter or mentioned about it in my application. Can I update this information to my application now?

It will be very much helpful if I get answers for these.

RE: How long it would take to get spouse open work permit visa
You have applied for a work permit, so the work permit guidelines would normally apply.

You cannot "move" an application from OWP (which is temporary status) to PR (which is permanent status). You would need to submit an Express Entry application.

You can upload your offer letter, certainly, though it shouldn't be necessary provided that your spouse is in a NOC O, A or B position.

FSW: App 6/09, reject 12/11, JR leave 7/12, discontinued 9/12
Spousal: App 3/12, sponsor approval 6/12, PPR 9/12. Landed 13 October 2012.

Thank you. I also need information on getting PR. What are the pre requisites and when I will be eligible to take up IELTS to get PR?
