documents requirements depends on for which visa you are applying. are you talking about "Super Visa" or PR application or the H&C PR application?

What documents would the parent require from the home country? I saw that one is police clearance, are there any others?

Hi Torrie,
 
It's not clear when you say "somebody entered Canada from USA without Visa". Did you mean that the person in question is the citizen of the country (USA, Singapore, UK, Australia etc.)  who does not require visa to enter Canada?

Hi Juzar,
 
CIC Canada has recently announced that for comign two years Canada will not accpet sponsorship PR application for parents/grandparents.
 
Good news is, they are implementing Super Visa for parents/grans parents instead.
 
Parents and grandparents of Canadian citizens and permanent residents have a new option for visiting Canada. As of December 1, 2011, you may be eligible to apply for the Parent and Grandparent Super Visa and enjoy visits to Canada of up to two years without the need to renew your status.
 
As of November 5, 2011, no new applications to sponsor parents or grandparents will be accepted for processing for up to 24 months. This temporary pause will allow us to focus on those applicants already awaiting a decision and reduce the backlog in the parents and grandparents category. This does not affect sponsorship applications for spouses, partners, dependent or adopted children and other eligible relatives. New applications received on or after November 5, 2011, will be returned to the applicant, including fees.
 
 
Therefore, you Sister who is living in Canada should apply for your mom's Super Visa. Or you can come back to Canada and do it by yourself too. But they might look for your income (LICO - Low Income Cut Off) the minimum income that you should have for you and your mom and your wife as welll as your kids, if you have any. Since you are recently landed in Canada... it's better for your sister to apply the Super Visa, since your sister ight already have several years income in Canada.

My mother has been to Canada on a temporary visa of six months and my sister had extended her visa and she has lived in Canada for two years before coming back to Kenya. After that we had applied for a temporary visa twice and they rejected and live in caregiver once which they also rejected. The reason for rejecting the temporary visa was Close family ties in Canada and no employment.

 

I have got permanent residence visa and become a PR on 3rd October 2011. My sister is settled in Canada and she is a Canadian residence. She has sponsored my mother one and half year ago but they say it will still require three and half years before the sponsorship can be complete. My younger brother is on work permit in canada and has no intention of coming back to Kenya.

 

My mother is staying with me currently staying alone in Kenya and i had to come back to Kenya since no one to look after her. I wanted assistance on how i can also take my mother together with me so that we can all go and settle in Canada. I cant just leave my mother alone in Kenya and i really want to start a new life in Canada. I will pay any fees if a lawyer can take up my case and fight for me. I read in CIC Website that you can apply for Visa on humanitarian ground. This is taken from CIC website.

The Immigration and Refugee Protection Act and its regulations provide authority to visa officers to use their discretion in evaluating situations in which there may be compelling humanitarian and compassionate considerations. Applicants who wish to have any particular circumstances of a humanitarian and compassionate nature taken into account by the visa officer should attach a written submission to the application, describing the situation. If a temporary resident permit is approved under these circumstances, an additional fee is payable.

I am willing to pay any amount of fees if a lawyer can take up my case and fight for me.
 
Please help. I read that the minister annouced immigration to give parents 10year visa. My case is geniune.
