So here goes.....
Don't have plenty story just that God did it
.... I mean He really did.
ITA- May 31( 414, second express entry profile first expired)
AOR- August 28(got it a few minutes after submitting documents)
Medicals passed- September 11( BG changes to NA later that day)
PPR - September 15( got email at 3.01am)
Family of 4.

Everything was not perfect , worried about everything but I prayed for less than 3 weeks processing and I got it.
This platform was helpful both to douse fears and also increase it. My advice...sometimes in the multitude of information worry might increase, God will perfect all in His time. I know I can't express what I went through and how much I needed this but trust me I did. Right now it feels like I am dreaming....well when the Lord turned again the captivity of Zion......

Thanks to everyone and good luck to all those waiting...... Good things come to those who wait....

Thanks, I am fine too. God willing, early next year smiley wink

Please I have a question that nobody has answered.
Is it wrong to create two profiles for a family. That is I create my own profile for the family and my wife creates her own for the family. If we both get ITA, we use one.
I'm thinking about this because it will be easier for me to get supporting documents than my wife. However my CRS is lower than my wife due to age. So if we both create profiles and we both get ITA, I'll prefer we use my profile. I'll only want us to use her profile if I didn't ITA because it will be more difficult to get her documents.
Is this my plan okay?

Lol. I think it should not be a problem.

From my personal experience, I think it's okay to upload both passports. (if you like Nigeria enough to get a Naija passport issued for your child )grin

In my own case, I uploaded both the Nigerian and American passport for my kids.( I have 2) and we got PPR on the 21st day. cheesy

Going by CIC's rule of uploading all pages with markings on travel documents, I uploaded both passports. My decision was driven by the fact that they have their entry and exit stamps as well as their Nigerian travel visa on the American passport. (Initial visa obtained to bring them back home after birth).

For Passport submission, only the data page of their American passport is required by experience, but I sent both passports after reading @folamigo's post.

Application got approved on CIC profile on the 12th of September but yet to receive COPR thanks to my brothers in Accra.(Still waiting for Pickup mail).

Note: Only spouse and I have visa numbers generated on CIC profile. (issued for our very green Naija passports).

It is therefore evident that citizens of visa exempt countries will only get COPR since their passports can get them into Canada.

Hello people, please I need help. I am a dentist with three years work experience, ielts LRSW 8,8.5,7.5,7 and Wes evaluation. My spouse doesn't have complete education history (to be completed by November) and no work history. I have been told on this forum that his education and work experience doesn't matter but whenever I apply for EE it says ineligible. But when I apply as a single person it's eligible with scores 450. What do I do or what options do I have?

Sorry, just seeing this. My dear I don't know why it's giving you that. Kissoflife had a similar issue. Maybe he can come and help.

Nothing to lose by uploading the 2 passports.

I have another question oh. What of American green card holders? They are visa exempt from Canada too. As in they can go to Canada with their Nigerian passport and just their American green card and be allowed entry.

In this PR case, will they too be issued a visa on their Naija passport? Or treated like US passport holders?

What is ur CRS when married? He can still do IELTS. Check ur CRS with his imagined 20pts. I still don't know how folks on 307,309 etc get eligible profiles.
463 using crs calculator. But I don't understand why it's saying ineligible on EE profiling

Aside costs and inconveniences, if it doesn't come, you leave the US not to jeopardize ur future US entry.
If he sends and the passport isn't back, can he leave US without the passport?

I think he should consider traveling to a safe haven before the hard date, send the passport from there and await recovery. Cause chances of having the passport back September 30th (just 2 weeks if he sends today) is slim, very slim.

Thanks for this. This eTA thing just started recently oh for flights, one didn't need it before. I guess it's to generate revenue abi airline tax.

And am I correct to think that the green card has to be scanned and uploaded too when declaring travel document?

Hey dear. I guess this is the problem, you need minimum 18,825 cad for the three of you. So change to something higher. Try this first and let's see. Pele

Sure! Especially if you applied from the USA. Document showing legal status in country of residence/ application should be uploaded.

They'll probably ask for it as an additional document If you don't submit upfront.
Also, since there's no place holder for it, and it to your LOE.

I believe you need to send it. Someone was asked to resend the original passport after initially sending copy.
There is no harm in sending everything at once.

ranjitksubraman:


Thanks you! It's a Great Relief!!!
Another Question... My Daughter is a US Citizen. Do I need to send her original passport or just passport copy ?

Even though it is Visa exempt country, I want to be sure and do want to end up sending her original passport again...
