Marriage to a Comoran Citizen

Every country has laws that apply to its citizens marrying a person from a different country. Getting married to a Comoran citizen to bring them to Canada to live eventually is a process with many steps.

You must demonstrate to Comoran officials that they are not currently married to anyone else – either you have never been married, or all divorces are finalized – that your identity is proven and that you have never committed any crimes in Comoros. This is done by providing various documents, including an Affidavit of Single Status, to the Comoran government either in Comoros or via a Comoran embassy.

If you want to bring your Comoran spouse or partner to live in Canada, you must then file a sponsorship application for them to become a permanent resident. If they would like to visit you in Canada while their application is in process, they must also apply for a visitor visa. For more information, please see our family sponsorship page and our visitor visa page.
