Marriage to a Grenadian Citizen

Every country has laws that apply to its citizens marrying a person from a different country. Getting married to a Grenadian citizen with the goal of eventually bringing them to Canada to live is a process with many steps.

To learn more, contact the Grenadian Embassy.

If you want to bring your Grenadian 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.
