Good day my beloved people.
I submitted my online application on 10th October, 2017.
Did biometrics on 11th October, 2017
I just got an email for original passport request today, 19th November, 2017.

My question is, if I submit my passport, how long would it take to receive it back?

My gurus and expert in the house, please respond. Thank you very much in advance.

Within 5 days I guess. My parents submitted their passport s on the 6th Nov while their passports were ready for collection on the 8th and 9th Nov respectfully

You should be able to use the card if it's dollar dominated, I used my USD visa debit card to pay for both UK and Canada for my parents as well as Australia app.

It's naira debit card. Is there any alternative to pay as I don't have the dollar card?

Hello Guys , thanks for your prompt response. It has gone a long way. I'm about to submit my application and I have a few questions abeg no vex I ask a lot of questions just to be clear.
Basics
I'm applying for visiting (tourist)
- My account balance is less than 200k but I placed $1500Cad on my expenses for a week. I believe this is outside hotel reservation and flight.
- On the IMM5257E form there's a column for 'UCI' what do I write there.
- Under purpose of travel what do I submit. From what I've seen it states flight ticket, travel itinerary. How do I go about this? Will it be in form of a letter? Can I book a hotel? Can I book a flight? I plan visiting Niagara Falls (Toronto) and war museum at Ottawa, casa loma , ripleys aquarium. must the hotel I book close to it, if yes how close. Cos apart from Niagara falls , the other sites are close to each other.
- How do I write a letter of explanation.
I had to mention your posts please don't be vexed. Thank you very much.

@bigcil2, while including your coy tax clearance further strengthens your application, I don't think it is compulsorily a necessity because I did not include it in mine and was approved recently. If you have it, use it. If you don't have it, then don't sweat it.

However, I must also stress that you shouldn't be looking to use funds inside your company account as your only proof of funds. While the company statement of account shows your source of income, I think they don't expect you to mix biz with pleasure, so you should have a personal account for your personal expenses. It is of my opinion that it is better to support your application with a personal statement of account with substantial amount that can cover for your trip and even leave good cushion(as they don't expect you to spend all you have on a one week trip). Except this is a business trip, I don't think your company account as only proof of financial capability can fly. Just my thoughts and from what worked for me.

Do your homework before applying please.

Goodluck.



@bigcil2, you have a very good response here by @justwise. Thats why I believe supporting your application with a personal bank statement(sufficient enough for trip and extra) will clear the VO's worry about gross/net et al.

Contact the tax man for that.

Most Bank's debit card can be used now,CBN relapsed the ban months back unless you are telling us there is a new restriction. Try GTbank, FBN naira mastercards. They should work, cos from the last mail they sent, the monthly limit is $1000

Overall statement for a month is more than 3m but current balance is less than 200k that's what I meant. And I own my business I believe I can travel when and how I want.

I will be surprised if you are given a visa. Company's money is not for foreign leisure trip, it's only for business trip.

You also need to proof that you have strong ties to Nigeria and not rely on 3rd party sponsorship alone.

You are a potential immigrant as you are traveling with your entire family on somebody else's expense.
