Saw this on a group where I belong I thought it may be useful for as many that want to get PTA

The Director of Corporate Communications, CBN has advised the general public that CBN is providing dollars for 100 percent of genuine applications for PTA/BTA, Medical and Tuition for customers of all Banks. But some banks are still claiming that they don't have dollars. Consequently, CBN is sternly looking at recent actions of the related Banks as potential economic sabotage. CBN has asked Nigerians that anyone who has submitted application through any Bank branch and if within 24 hrs does not get allocation for PTA or BTA and 48hrs for Medical and Tuition pls contact CBN Consumer Protection Department through the details below providing name of Bank and branch..

Alantobie:
Pls gurus I am confused and need your help. My uncle in Abu Dhabi has my funds with him but he is not my sponsor. My mom is my sponsor and she gave him the funds to keep for her. He is meant to pay a year tuition fee and transfer the remaining money to my dorm account. We just spoke and he said that it might raise red flags if they find out that funds were transferred from the UAE to my dorm account. My question is will it raise red flags if they see funds transferred from another country to my dorm account. Is there a way to fix this. Please help me

long post alert
Hi Alantobie, it isn't a red flag if the funds are transferred from another country to a dorm account. We did this for two of my siblings and it worked fine. In both cases, the sponsor transferred the money from his foreign account to the applicant's dorm account. Same sponsor also paid tuition from his foreign account.

The sponsor clearly mentioned this in his sponsorship letter. E.g. the sponsorship letter would have a sentence like "as a demonstration of my commitment to sponsor Miss. Ngozi Adetola, I have fully paid tuition for her first year (see attached transfer receipt from my bank & her university account receipt) in the amount of $xy,xyx CAD. For her first year living expenses, I also transferred $yx,yxy CAD (or USD or GBP, etc) to her domicilliary account at GTB; the transfer receipt from my bank is attached as well."

I would strongly suggest you either spend one paragraph in your SOP discussing these finances, or just write a short but separate "letter of clarification of finances" to describe all your finances in about one and half paragraphs. Make it straight to the point. Be as clear as possible, cos you don't want the VO having to spend too much time trying to comprehend your finances. In my view, the more frustration the VO experiences while going through your app the higher your probability of denial.

About the fact that your mom is your sponsor even though the money is in your uncle's account. Hmm... legally the money is your uncle's (at least in the eyes of the VO) so why not make him your sponsor and maybe your mom as co-sponsor?

I obviously don't know if withdrawing the money from your uncle's account would empty it, in which case it probably wouldn't fly with the VO for him to be your sole sponsor.

Do you have a clear paper trail that proves that your mom gave him the money to keep? If so, I guess you can include such evidence (and still have your mom as your main sponsor). But if you can't explain this to the VO as concisely as possible, it would start to get frustrating to comprehend such a circuitous explanation. Do also keep in mind that the VO will be wondering why your mom gave your uncle money to "keep"... I hope your mom has a concise non-fishy explanation ready (assuming she'll be your main sponsor).

If you've PMed me I'll accept it. Please bear with me because I'm likely to be super slow in responding (I'll respond faster on here than by email). I strongly suggest you continue to ask your most general questions publicly though so others can benefit. Thanks.

Hello everyone, I got my passport today & was refused based on just finances, the three boxes ticked, even though I paid 1st semester tuition, my question now is, I am confused, if I get to tackle finances, hope there is no possibility of getting denied again based on another reason or I should just end canadian dream on this note because the emotional trauma isn't here.NB: I am a nurse, applied for Pgc in a nursing related course,

long post alert
Arebo, sorry about your denial.

In my view, an "insufficient funds" denial is one of the easiest to get out of, so long as you are able to verifiably show funds in your name beforehand. Pay one year tuition and show $10k in dom account in your name, but I suggest your sponsor transfer more than $10k to your dom account... more like $13k-15k if possible... this psychologically tells the VO that your sponsor is able and willing to let go of funds. Stay with $10k if that's all that's possible tho.

It is also indeed possible to get denied for other reasons even if the first denial was just for "insufficient funds" (this happened to two monikers in 2015 actually...). I know it sounds contradictory to the previous paragraph but let me explain how I think you can avoid this (as long as your next application is of same or better quality as the previous). Edited: Disclaimer: this is not a guarantee o, as I am obviously not a VO.

Ok here's what to do: Write a separate "Letter of Clarification" stating the reasons why you were denied last time (list it as bullet points so it is easy for the VO to read in case s/he isn't paying attention) and what you have done to fix it (write this in another set of bullet points showing each step of what you've done).

See the next post for an example format (modify it to your needs but I don't suggest you copy it exactly)

In doing the above, the VO is likely to not treat your application as a fresh application, but as an application that has already passed CIC rigour and only wasn't approved because of finances. Keep the letter in a very visible place in your application, if you submit on paper put it on the page right after your CIC forms, or right before your SOP. If online, put as the first page in the LOE section, and maybe even another copy as first page in Finances section. You want the VO to see it before over-analyzing your app all over again lol.

Format of "Letter of Clarification" after insufficient funds denial.
Please do not copy this exactly because other readers will too, and the VO may stop taking letters with this format seriously after he/she has seen it too many times.
Dear visa officer:
The purpose of this letter is to demonstrate how I have addressed your concerns about my previous study visa application. My previous application (UCI # xyxxyxyxyxyx, application date: dd/mm/yy) was refused for the following reasons:
x insufficient funds to pay for travel
x insufficient funds to pay tuition
x insufficient funds to pay living expenses

Here are the steps I have taken to address your concerns:
x paid $xy,xyx for one year tuition (see attached bank transfer receipt and university receipt)
x sponsor transferred one year living expenses of $yx,yxy to my GTB domicilliary account (see attached)
x sponsor added proof of property, worth $... (see attached )
x I have included proof of my savings account, showing NGNx,yxx,yyx balance (~$y,yxy CAD equivalent)
x ...

My total annual expenses for my program cost $yx,yyx, the total amount paid for my tuition and transferred to domicilliary account is $yy,yyyx which exceeds my program's annual cost of $yy,xyy.

My sponsor's up-front payment of my tuition as well as his transfer of $yx,yxy to my dom account for living expenses demonstrate both my availability of funds and his commitment to sponsoring my Canada education. The total funds available for my stay, including paid tuition, living expenses funds in my dom account, my savings account, ... is $.... which is more than sufficient to cover...

I look forward to the opportunity to studying blah at University of blah, so that blah (i.e one final sentence to remind the VO about why you wanna study whatever you are going to study... only include this sentence if you have something concise and compelling to say.)

Thank you,
Mr. Kolade Chukwu

Recently discovered this thread. Kudos to Y'all for the good job.
I am a student in Estonia studying Environmental Specialist(Professional Higher Diploma 3years)
I've gotten admission to Georgian college to study Diploma in Civil Engineering Technician 2years January 2018.
My cousin in the USA (now a citizen) is my sponsor he intends to give me his pay slips and all that.

_Brethren I would like to know the chance I stand with regards to the program i intend to study, also is it advisable for my cousin to sponsor me? He's a nurse.
_How many months of payslips are okay? And what other docs aside the pay slip should he provide?

Thank you for your assistance.

Hello,
Congrats on your Admission, your first course is quite diff from civil engr technician, if you intend to convince the VO with a letter of explanation, you need cogent reasons and proof that shows u have some sought of background with civil engr or the VO might see u as an immigrant.
However, I think your chances are slim from normal perspective but with proper doc and efforts , it might fly especially if u can deliberately indicate some civil engr work or studies u have done before to indicate carrier or academic progression.

Now, you cousin can sponsor you, yes he can. 4-6 months payslips will fly but remember, he should pay one year fees and transfer 10k Canadian dollars into your dollar account before you print your account statement and explain this in your letter of explanation. Then, u must also add his data page of passport, birth certificate , employment letters and everything else he provide. Don't assume anything.

These are my thoughts, the gurus might contribute if they see the need. One love.

Good morning all nairalanders I've been a member of naira lander since the FSB bullshit.
Now I applied to Vancouver island university and got admitted to study economics bachelor's degree. I am currently a 300l student of unizik as I just concluded my 200l still in economics. I submitted my first year transcripts but wasn't able to get the second year due to strike and results not being released at once.

I am to start by January 8th, tuition deposit of CAD$8655.88 have been paid. Courses have been registered though I was put on waitlis for some.

All through it has been Ama dove Nigeria Ltd an agency who has been behind all from admissions to this very stage..

Now I am at visa stage. All forms were filled on my behalf by Ama dove online and printed out and I am to submit all of them in persons as well as supporting documents to consulate of Canada at Victoria island today but I do not have this VIS CONSENT FORM ish, don't know if it is necessary.

I wrote a very good personal statement. I am being sponsored by my dad having written his letter of sponsorship stating is company's network of over #200m and assets of over #100m showing statements of accounts of several banks but we made a mistake in the address of one of the properties that is we wrote no 54 nwankwo street instead of no 1 nwankwo street as shown in the land docs. Hope it won't also be a problem.

My fear is this visa if a thing abeg, is there any doc I should add to enable smooth and fast sailing of visa processing abeg.

Thanks..

Consent form will be given to u at vfs if you have to add it to ur application.

I suggest u find a way to correct that address, it is worth it.

Then for fast sailing, no guarantees dear but from experience, if you can provide easily verifiable docs like certificate of ownership instead of land deeds, international passport instead of age declarations, it helps.
