Pls kindly atrent to this. Thanks

Hello house,I'm currently in USA on visiting Visa, but wish to travel with my spouse to Canada next year [After our marriage].

My questions are [1] can I apply for Canadian Visit/ Tourist Visa here in USA while on Visit?
[2] if the above question is ok,won't it raise flag on why we apply from different Countries.?
Your advice are needed. Thanks

I will advise you don't apply from the US. Most people have been denied based on" immigration status in country of residence". You are not a legal resident if you are on a visitors visa.

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.

Thanks a lot, this is really helpful.

That equals no travel history.... Hopefully, that's even a legit visa anyways! However, you could leverage on an unused Canadian visa for SA visa application but hardly the other way round. Regards

Do you have a job? What's your financial status at the moment and what home ties do you have? Having an SA visa would not improve your chances of getting a Canadian visa especially when you have not used it. Mind you, people get visa on a virgin passport. 1.5m is a bit small if that is your entire savings. VO will also wonder why you would want to spend your entire savings on a trip. I think you should list the documents you want to submit and tell us a little more about your situation before we can answer.

Hello,

Please i need an urgent response to the question below or your take on what i have been thinking of.

I applied for my Canada visa 10th August to accompanying my daughter to her University in Canada for her MBA degree.shes an adult 20years of age but i want to help her settle down.she applied for her permit visa same time with me so we are both awaiting a response from CIC.I booked an hotel reservation along side(An hotel close to the school at British Columbia) I have a good travel history (SA,UK,SPAIN,US). However i didn't disclose i was once denied a US visa because i have a current US Visa to expire 2018 so i felt since i still have a current visa there was no need to disclose.

i have submitted my application Via online route and i just got to know about this trend please is there a way i can update the Canadaian embassy stating that i was refused before but still have a current US Visa using the email: accra.immigration@international.gc.ca or i should hold on and say nothing.

And for my daughter does my USA refusal affects her because when she was 13 years old i applied for a USA Visa and was rejected; she was included in my application then. But since she was a8 years she has been applying for herself and has been issued a USA visa.Please does it affect her so she will disclose it?

I will appreciate any contribution what soever. Please let me know your view.

Hello House.

Just to update u guys. Hubby and I applied via paper route on 5th July. We linked out application to an online account and we've been checking status. Got response today and we were both denied due to the fact that VO wasn't satisfied that we will return, travel history and insufficient funds.

It's not a big deal. We will visit other countries and see our friends that are based in canada some other time.

Wish you guys all the best!

Lets pray your file hasn't been looked into. I will advise you email CIC ASAP with a letter stating that you forgot to mention that you were denied a US visa. Your daughter should do same. You can receive a 5 year ban for this. So send an email ASAP. There was a similar case on the student thread. The boy received a letter of misrepresentation because he didn't state he had been refused a visa to the US. He was under 18 at that time and was included in his parents application. He was later on refused but don't know the reason.

If $1000 is exclusive of hotel reservation, I think its ok. You said interview, do you mean US? This is Canada thread.

Re: Canada Visit/tourist Visa Discussion. by Liz2014(f): 8:38pm On Sep 13
You don't need to do anything. Just relax and wait for their response. You have a current US Visa already. The decision lies on the VO Officer. Your daughter for sure should get hers but then for you, they will look at your family ties back home, proof of funds, sufficient travel reason (i.e why are you following your daughter all the way to Canada just to help her start school) but like I said it depends on the Visa officer.

Wishing you best of luck.

What she did is referred to as misrepresentation by CIC. its not something to relax on. People get banned for 5 years for this. I suggest she sends an email to CIC and inform them before they do. Its either she waits till she gets a letter from them asking her to explain within a given time frame as people with similar situation got or she can send an email and know if she can tackle it before they do. A nice VO might be handling her file and might decide not to push further if her reasons are convincing.

Be strong blackpearl, i'm conscious of the Canada visa refusal feelings. Kindly take note of these two (2) visa adjudication points now and work on them by building a good travel history and also making greater savings as i believe anything beyond 4million would be considered sufficient for a couple with air fare inclusive for two(2) weeks visit. Never give up and try again when the travel history is built, though some without any travel history are granted visa. Your time shall come sooner than later, ok.

Secondly, does it mean June applications have all been processed? As i submitted my paper route application on the 23rd of June. Kindly update us please if you're a June applicant whether granted or refused as we're all here to help one another.

Thank you all and God bless the prospective responders.

Passport has been dispatched today already ...so my plan no work. I guess I will just be patient till tomorrow or next to know the outcome.
