Okay on a lighter note, Edoblakky stop hiding behind your son, Ruth22, eridemilade all of you guys that applied for spousal work permit we all know say na konji wan kill you people, na that be the koko of the matter abi I lie? You people should lead a protest to their Lekki office o "SAY NO TO KONJI".

It is well, we will all hear good news in the end by His grace.

I actually have traveled to Nigeria like 3 times since I came to Canada last year August. It's just that I won't be celebrating the Christmas with my family for the first time. I know and can sense a quick answer to our application soonest.

Permit me to ask are you on a study permit yourself?
Edoblakky:
I still don't understand CIC. I applied for my wife in January this year. Because there was delay and she was expectant, she went to the US to have our baby. She was invited to submit her passport the very day she gave birth in the US. We missed the 30 day window and we came back to Nigeria where we were advised to reapply. We've reapplied since second week in June with upfront medical and done biometrics same period. I am shocked that almost 6 months and no response. Even while in the US, we tried calling and sending emails but they are too lazy to respond. I think I'll have to call the Calgary representative in the parliament 2moro.

Congratu;ations. Patience is key!

Work permit approved! Waiting to get my passport back from vfs.
I wish you all the best! Have patience.
Re: Canada Spouse Open Work Permit (sowp)timeline by VEIL1234: 9:14pm On Dec 03, 2016
Amen!!!
Edoblakky:
Thanks eridemilade!
I've been living without my family for over a year now. My son keeps asking me on video call when I'm coming home. My daughter said they should turn off the video the last time I called. And I won't be spending the holidays with them for the first time. CIC should do the needful so that we can be together.

I pray for my case and that of others - there shall be a speedy answer before 2016 wounds up.

I think there is nothing like first come first serve in Canada visa application, getting scared while looking at the processing time because i want to apply for my husband and one year old daughter in January, i think i will go with the paper route, i believe it will be better than online.

Paper application is best way to apply for any type of Canadian visa. Submitting online application doesn't guarrantee your application will be treated in Lagos or Abuja. If by any chance your online application is treated in Accra, chances of your visa being approved is slim. I still don't understand why most Nigerian online applications are being refused when treated in Accra.
