Good day Nigerians from different parts of united states. Please did anyone recently changed or adjusted his/her visa status from B1/B2 tourist visa to either green card or F1 student visa since 2018 or since trump became president? Please share your experience on how it went. Thanks.

@Ninab and @MizGene;

"Visa application centres will screen all applications for CAN+ eligibility. Applications that show that the applicant travelled to Canada in the last 10 years or holds a valid U.S. non-immigrant visa will be sent to the visa office for expedited processing."

If going the paper route, call their attention to your qualifications for this at the VFS Office when you go for application submission.

Wow ok! I didn't know that.

Does this apply to nigerian applicants ? I tried looking into CAN+ and I could only find associations between CAN+ and Indian applicants

Thanks

Yes, it does. A search will mostly pop-up India, google the qualifying countries or be "Nigeria-specific" in your search....

Hello guru’s I applied and did my Biometric in Abuja on 19th October, 2018.. I got a letter today that the VO is concerned that my bank statement his fraudulent. I’m told to reply in 10days before final decision is made.
How do I reply to this because my statement of account is genuine.?
The letter was written to me on November 2018 but I got the email today meaning it’s over 10days but final decision hasn’t been made in my application.
Am I going to submit another up to date statement of account or what am I going to do?

Wow. This is new and very surprising as I'm aware they typically confirm bank statements from the bank. Do people still use fake bank statements in this 2019?

I suggest you get your bank to print and stamp your statement and perhaps a covering letter stating the account is yours and is operational

Please assist with a response. Is it necessary to print and sign IMM 5645e for family visit visa application?, thanks.

Thanks, does this apply to imm5645e too. Cos i was told that one has to be printed and signed. The place to sign on it does not allow for you type in a name.

Thanks ! no cause for alarm because why I’m worried is that the bank statement is genuine. And if truly there was confirmation, bank wouldn’t say it’s fraudulent.

Good day All,

I would ask or plead if any one can refer or share their cover letter/statement of purpose sample with me.

I previously applied for a visiting Visa in 2016 but was denied. Now I intend to reapply and wish to attached a cover letter to it addressing the reasons that was given for the denial.

Secondly I just want to confirm if I would be required to do another biometric considering the fact that the Visa was denied in 2016?.

Thank you



Can any one help with this please

Kudos! I quite appreciate your type, you only heard of it and you are down to work already and helping others too instead of “tormenting/bombarding” the whole thread with stuff you could easily do yourself. And by the end of the process, you come out better and much more well informed. Thanks bruv, thumbs up!

I'm guessing you may have responded by now, but let me just give a suggestion for someone who may face this in the future. I think you can get a letter from the bank stating the date account was opened and the current balance (like a reference letter), an updated account statement (showing transactions from when u submitted to date) and then include a cover letter (just write plenty English that the account is genuine as evidenced by d bank reference letter and updated statement, you have been doing transactions since,etc)

I submitted a tourist visa application for my parents and it got approved in about 1 week. I think it's probably due to their extensive travel history. See timeline below:

Submitted January 6
Biometrics request January 7
Biometrics done January 9
Passport request January 14

I stated I was paying for travel tickets. I have PR status but I'm still in Naija presently so I used my Nigerian account statement and stated I'll be in Canada at the time of their trip. Then I kept their budget low at 2000 CAD for both of them so it didn't seem like they wanted to use all the funds in their account for the trip.

Hello all, I need clarification.

I am applying for visa for my wife to give birth in canada. She is the main applicant.

Thinking of the best option to answer for purpose of visit. Should I fill tourism, visit or others.

I have a letter of invitation from a family friend for her.

I also intend attaching my statement of account to hers when uploading. Will that be okay?

She also has a side business aside her job, the company is registered and she uses her personal account for the business.

There's a question about having a business. Can i say yes.

You technically can't do that. She needs to return to Nigeria before going back to Canada. There is a law against going to the US for flagpoling or so- not entirely sure. Research it properly
Re: Canada Visit/tourist Visa Discussion. by better2(m): 11:39am On Jan 17
Tourism is better but you will have to explain in your cover letter the main purpose

you will to attached referral letter from Nigeria doctor and an appointment letter from Canada doctor.

Business account should be funded as well as your account
