Good day everyone. Please I need assistance. I’m applying for a Canada tourist visa. I used the new website and filled the form. I have a valid UK and U.S and I’ve been to over 15 countries. As documents, I was provided space to upload only my US visa, passport page and employment letter and just 1 additional document. I did this. I have other supporting documents. How do I show this? It say based on my application these are the documents I’m meant to provide and they will ask for additional ones if need be. Now I’ve scheduled Biometrics. Will this be a problem?

Good evening guys. Pls i need your help. we applied for tourist visa for my wife and 2 kids to go visit my sister in law and her family in Canada. we submitted all the necessary documents including our proof of funds which came was about 20 million naira. 15 million naira was in wife's account while 5 million naira was in my account that i provided. the total money was around 18000 CAD at the time we applied. we just got a response last week that they are refusing us the visa because we do not have enough funds to sustain our travel and stay in canada for a week. we did the process through an agent.. Now my question is, how soon can we reapply. Is there any other means of getting my wife and kids into canada aside the tourist visa route. I cant travel with them for now because of my work. Thanks for all the assistance.

please can you share your application timeline like the time you people went for biometric and were answered.

I'll advise you to apply for a gcsm note so the vo officer can explain why the application was refused
Re: Canada Visit/tourist Visa Discussion. by lanre2009: 8:04pm On Feb 20
My wife and first son went for the biometric around November 2023. We got the response of refusal on 13th February 2024

Pls how do we apply for the gcsm note?

Is it possible to apply for both tourist visa and express entry at the same time?

Re: Canada Visit/tourist Visa Discussion. by slimmsyyetty: 8:26pm On Feb 20
Please, I need clarification because I don't understand.

Is it that you want them to re-apply for VV just for visitation or you are looking for a way for them to relocate while you remain in Nigeria because of your work, temporarily? Visit visa isn't the best for relocation for your wife and kids, if I must tell you the truth.

If you would like them to relocate, why not let your wife go through study route. She applies first without the kids and apply for them when her visa is out.

Though study route is now expensive but if it's a thing you can afford, please use that route. You yourself will feel relaxed and psychologically balanced knowing fully well they are safe and their freedom isn't compromised in whatever way.

My opinion

Good evening everyone,
Please I submitted my visitors visa application Nov. 19, 2023. Am going for a paid conference btw 26th - 28th April, 2024 so I applied to spend 7days. I use 4m as my POF. Please is this amount ok and if not ok what can I do since the application is still in process.

Please your advice will be valuable.
Thanks

The first picture is the original post but there's an error in between the dates. Application was submitted on the 20th AND BACKGROUND CHECK WAS DONE THE NEXT DAY, 21ST.

It is the error that Rid007 saw and wanted clarification as seen in the second picture.

Re: Canada Visit/tourist Visa Discussion. by slimmsyyetty: 2:35am On Feb 21
To be honest, 4M is very low with the way naira devalued drastically without looking back a bit. With the way naira is now, 4M could be your return flight ticket alone if flight ticket initially was peg at 3M before naira fell to 1800/$1 as at today. How about hotel fee and feeding? You still need to have substantial balance left after the VO removes costs of travel. Remember, we don't know where Naira is devaluing to so the more naira depreciate, the more the naira in your account devalues to the VO for your purpose of travel

In my own opinion, what you claim you do (occupation) could help. If you have a very good and stable job and you were able to defend it in your application, then the closing balance may be overlooked. Again, if you had a very good cash flow(huge in and out of money, i.e. credit and debit) in your bank statement and not just a lump sum deposit to acquire your 4M, the closing balance 4M may be overlooked.

Another thing is to submit an updated 6 month bank account with about 8-10M through webform i.e. if only you have been building your account from the time of submission. If you have withdrawn your 4M or is far less, don't implicate yourself by submitting your SOA anymore with the intention of depositing the 8-10M in your account because they would believe you used the initial 4M for demonstration purposes. In fact, don't bother crediting your account with lump sum to cover up the missing 4M. If you submit a new updated account, they will first trace the 4M and the cash flow in your account after you submitted yourapplication in November. Don't forget your updated bank account statement will now have to cover December, January and February. The VO will judge your financial status within these 3 months

For instance, if you have withdrawn the money to like 400-500k with little or no deposit coming in and all of a sudden, you deposited lump sums towards the time you submitted the new SOA, it will appear suspicious as demonstration purposes and that is a redflag. Also, you need to explain CONVINCINGLY how the new lump sum came into being with strong evidence(s). Don't tell me you will tell them you sold your properties for visiting either conference or tourism purpose.

Last option... pray that naira should be strengthen back to like 700/$1 so your 4M can have value for your purpose of travel because I am a believer of miracle cool

Shalom!!!

In my opinion, it depends on the number of days you intend staying in Canada and with the way naira has drastically devalued(1800/$1) and devaluing further, I will suggest 12-15M or at least 10M(God help you if naira didn't slide to 2000/$1 after submission with 10M). Cost of flight alone is 3M (excluding hotel, feeding and miscellaneous) and may be more from these airlines with the continuous devaluation of naira. Even with this amount, don't fill in more than 7 days as your intended stay in your application form because the higher your stay, the higher your budget on your POF. Just be strategic!!!

Remember you must also show to the VO your account will not be empty when the cost of travel is deducted. You can't spend about 5-6M (including flight, hotel booking, feeding and miscellaneous) and have 1-2M left. That's silly-(in VO's mind). A wise person would try to have at least more than the amount you spent on your visit in your balance.

Shalom!!!
