Thanks a lot Jawa. I'm a registered Nollywood movie director and this particular festival is an annual Nollywood collaborated film festival in Toronto.
Jawa:


hi Yjc07, this decision completely depends on you, how bad you want the canadian visa and how important the film festivals are. as a quick note, if this film festival is not directly in line with your work and/or you academic qualifications, this application may likely be refused. best of luck
Re: Canada Visit/tourist Visa Discussion. by BYACHEM: 6:53pm On Sep 10
I think you can apply but you have to supports your application with detailed information in respect of why canada not dubai or others for vacation. The VO's are well trained ooo.

dear Menakay, you need to calm down sir. a VO will not refuse an application for 'no good reason'. the VO does not know the applicant so this is not a personal decision. there are qualities and attachments the VO is looking out for that the applicant falls short of. an ex senior colleague of mine who earns over 500,000NGN lived and studied in the UK for 5years, did a 1-year program in India and has his third US B1B2 visa but when he applied for a canadian visa even while on a vist to the US, it was denied. he even has 2 children, an irish citizen and a US citizen. he then told me that the VO saw his heart that he was never going to return. in my knowledge and from people i know personally, the Australian and New Zealand visas carry far more weight than the UK visa. talking of the UK, once you have money(not lodged) and have engagements, its about the easiest visa to get after the US visa.
the immigration lawyer you contacted will probably get the case notes as well and have a look at it and if he is honest, he will advise you to not appeal if the reasons are concrete. an immigration lawyer is not superior to a VO and even if he wins the appeal, if a CBSA officer is unsatisfied with the circumstances of the issuance, the immigration lawyer cannot help in that case as a CBSA officer's decision at POE, unfortunately, is final. best of luck

Nice one. I heard not even from two people that Australia and New Zealand visa are not hard to get. Could this be true?

Hi house! Good day all! Please, how can I make an airline reservation for a return ticket? Is it possible to make like 5% of the actual fair cos I intend adding it to my application? If yes, who can help with this? I don't intend paying the full fair. I just need to have it attached to my application prior to submission, since it's needed for a tourism visa.

Sorry that i am asking,please how do you intend to suddenly turn your visit visa in canada to permanent resident?cos i am interested too to learn how?

That apart,i sometimes dont understand it why we Nigerians when we are denied visit visa of any country we begin to threaten fire and brimstone and thunder to the country that denied us...we even go to the extent of doing fasting and prayers for months just to have the authority to enter a country and spend our money..our own money.If you are genuinely seeking for a visa just to visit and see how the country looks like you should not be angered when the authority said you aint qualified to visit yet...other countries are there to visit.problem is Canada has seen many cases of people who abused thier visa...UK has seen that...US has seen that and they know the story line too...apart from the people that got visa lottery in US,Students that graduated and got jobs and were subsequently helped out and those that got family sponsors..a lot over stayed thier visa and found themselves in somehow who now claim American citizens...

like someone rightly said..if you are denied visa of any country please look for another to go for your holiday...it may interest you to know that last week Canadians have asked the government why is Canada not being opened to the rest of the world to visit and appreciate the abundant nature Canada has...they asked the question why are other countries that are tourism endowed opening up and allowing people to come see what their country has while Canada is locking up,refusing to take advantage and make money through tourism..i can tell you that if you really want to see nature at its best Canada tops among...you may not see the type of amazing skyscrapers you see in dubai but you will sure get doses of the type of nature you have never seen before..so Canada is also losing by not issuing visit visa but they dont want to use because they want you to come and see nature and then take in visitors who will refuse to leave..just like you asking a visitor to come in to your home just to watch BBN as he doesn't have light or money to subscribe to the cable tv to watch it and after the show instead of the visitor to find his way back to his house..you saw him spreading mat for in your sitting room getting ready to sleep over..even asking you on top join whether you no go give am dinner chop?

so please and please visit visas are not do or die thing...before applying for a US visa to attend a Global economic summit in New York as i was one of the Nigerian delegate,i have visited 18 European countries,4 south american countries,3 Asian including Japan and China,2 middle east and almost 9 African countries,i even returned from Germany just 3 months before going to the US embassy,the VO leafed through all my passports and saw most valid visas and acknowledged that i am well traveled and mentioned my recent trip to Germany,but what did she say.." i am sorry you are not qualified to go to the US at this time,you may reapply some other time"..i smiled and put my hand in the pigeon hole and snatched my passport from her hand while she was surprised i was smiling and laughing over her visa refusal,other Nigerians at my back were all saying oga abeg no make this lady vex before she go begin deny all of us visa..carry your wahala dey go o...

but today i have a valid 10yrs US visa expiry in 2026...why because i am now a Canadian Permanent resident. Same US embassy that said i was not qualified...nothing changed but Country of residence changed and that was it.Nigeria is seen as a country where everybody wants to run away and they are not far from the truth...we all want a quality life style.

Thats not an issue,Canada will still issue you visa if they think so regardless of whether Canada 150th years anniversary is gone by...however Canadas 150yrs celebration is still on till December 2017....events are still going on to mark the 150th yrs so that is not an issue at all.

Its really not necessary paying 5% of the fare(although its not possible to). You are advised by CIC not to make any financial commitment before getting your visa. I usually use air France, klm or Ethiopia. They all allow you to make a reservation and pay in their offices. Usually give 48hours. It doesn't really matter if it expires. CIC just want to see your itinerary.
