I would like to get an advice about me and my partner marrying. I’m Vietnamese and my partner is Canadian. We’ve been dating for almost 2 years, and met when I was studying in Canada. During this hard time of Covid19 we’ve been worrying about each other. We planned to get married before too and would want to see each other sooner because of the situation now. We lived together in Canada for 10 months before my visa expired after which I bought a ticket to return home immediately. He’s working now so he cannot come to Vietnam for marrying, but if thats the only option then he’ll buy a ticket just to come here to marry and stay here with me while we do the sponsoring application. However my mom and sister are in the USA now and I’m staying with my dad in Ha Noi thats why we wanted to do it in Canada cause his parents are working too and its such a difficult time now. My partner’s family are all in Canada, thats why we would like to ask an advice if its a smarter idea for him to fly to Vietnam or is there a way for us to prove our relationship and have a visa there to get marry? And how long would it take for sponsoring after marriage?

I already got 2 denial visas recently when I applied for study visa to Canada because I’m planning to also study there it was initial plan and then get marry and the reason for denial is that they said I have family in Canada or i might bring my family with me which is not true. Maybe they think my partner is my family. We are both so confused now.

Any advice would help,
We thank you so much and have a wonderful day,

Best regards
