That's the theory yes. However, a friend of my had a heck of a time getting 
his Chech wife to immigrate to Canada. They needed to go through all kinds of 
stuff regarding visa's permit this, permit that. She finally was allowed to 
come over here, it it took them a year. It took me two months from submitting 
paperwork to being landed.

Maybe it's the country one comes from (I came from The Netherlands. Low 
profile, no war past other than WWII but then again what country doesn't have 
anything relating to WWII).
