Go with your passport, 3 colored photocopies of your passport data page and biometric confirmation letter.
Address is at Lekki phase 1, if you are in a cab you stop at Ikate roundabout bus stop. THE VFS OFFICE IS JUST A STONE THROW FROM THERE.
Just about 60 meters away. Trekable.

Form IMM...E is d one u do on d system and upload directly to d site. What u need to do is make sure u have at Adobe 11 on ur system, then right click on d form link on d application, and save it to ur desktop where u will easily locate it and minimize d browser, now open d saved file with adobe, and then u can fill it. Signature will be exactly d way ur name is on ur passport jst type it. And validate and then upload it. Gaskia...

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.

I will like to invite my Mom to visit me in Canada ( I am a permanent resident), but she does not have her marriage certificate as her marriage to my Dad was a traditional one.

Is it compulsory for her to provide a marriage certificate?

Thanks

Thank you

Gud day house, pls I need ur advice on something .
in 2017 I applied for visitor visa to Canada and my application was ready in december 2017, but unfortunately I was unable to pick it up since then due to a very "pathetic" reason. On Monday I went to VFS for the collection but I was told d application is no longer with them dat I should contact d embassy, wen I contacted the embassy through mail I received a response dat my passport has been sent to Zonal immigration office in Lagos.
My questions:
1. is it possible for me to get it at immigration office?
2 Do I need to pay some amount of money at immigration office nd hw easier or tedious is it to claim it?

pls serious answer or advice is needed.


below is d embassy response to my mail:

Good day,
You did not collect your package from the VAC within 30 days of their receipt of it. The VAC contacted you 3 times indicating that your package was ready for collection.
Your passport has been returned to the following address:

To God be the glory. My mum's TRV application was approved on Friday. I took the risk and reapplied online immediately and submitted more detailed documentation (letter of clarification for the refusal, purpose of travel, letter of invitation, updated bank statements, budget breakdown) this time. I resubmitted some old docs I used before. With God, it turned out well and in less than a month 21st Dec to 18th January (despite the holidays in between), we received passport request. Thanks for the advises. Please don't give up after a refusal. Try and be detailed as possible the first time and hope for the best.

Good morning my people. I am so deflated writing this. I need advice from the house please.

My mum's TRV application was refused yesterday. Let me give background info to enable you understand if there is anything I did wrong. The intention was for her to accompany us as we travel to land as new PRs.

I applied on the 25th of October with the following documents:

1. My bank statement showing balance of 4.5m
2. Mum's Tbill cert maturing this December with value of 1.1m plus another saving account with 600k balance.
3. Introduction letter from her school principal (she is a teacher with Anambra State Government)
4. Employment letter, posting letter, confirmation of appointment letter, promotion letter,payslip, 3 months salary account statement, e-tax card
5. Letter of invitation from me. In the letter, I stated that I am supporting her trip with the sum of 1.2m from the 4.5m balance in my acct. I also stated that she has been employed for 28 years, lives with my dad and siblings and will stay with us for 3 weeks before returning home
6. Her purpose of travel letter that stated that her job role, employer, number of children, activities in Nigeria, total fund available for the trip (total of C$10,340 - combination of the funds listed in 2 and 5 above)
7. Consent letter from my dad
8. My birth docs proving relationship,
9. My immigrant visa, COPR, and international passport
10. Photo
11. Application form, Family info form, marriage cert, educational certificates.
12. I didn't include flight reservation

So to the main reason given on the letter was:
1. insufficient funds, income/assets.
2. Officer was not satisfied that she will come back to Nigeria after her visit because of her travel history (she has never traveled out of Nigeria)

I am so confused, I don't know how to proceed from here. We really needed her to accompany us because I am 4 months pregnant and she wanted to help us with the stress of settling in cos of my active toddler, then come back much later next year when the baby arrives.
I don't know if I should apply again afresh bearing in mind the short time we have to land in Canada (barely 1 month and 1 week) or raise a CSE with my new account balance of 6.2m plus her acct statement to appeal the decision (is this even doable). How do they expect her to leave her job, whole family behind, husband and 4 other children that live with her and abscond to Canada. Aren't those ties enough?
Or is it that $10,340 is not enough for flight ticket and stay of 3 weeks?
Gathering these docs again to reapply plus the stress is doing my head in. What are the chances that it won't get rejected again. Should we just go and land and then reapply when we settle so that she can come in summer next year for omugwo. My problem with this is that I won't be working immediately until my baby grows and I may not have salary or bank acct statement to show and also I would have converted all my funds here in Nigeria before we leave for Canada, so no Naija statement to show.

Help me please. Any one. I am so confused.
Thanks.

Wow! Congrats to her, and to you too of course. Glad your persistence and resilience paid off, worth it.... What budget did you now finally use and was it individual or combined sponsorship this time? Congrats once more.

Good day @OmoBendel24,

i need some clarification on my husband and i TRV application which was denied despite submitting all necessary docs in my view. my question is can i reapply immediately alone or along with my Mom as my purpose is to come have a baby?

my hubbys last trip to the US was for 6 months which i think might have affected my application since it was done jointly?

also,

Comment given is below:

• I am not satisfied that you will leave Canada at the end of your stay as a temporary
resident, as stipulated in paragraph 179(b) of the IRPR, based on your family ties in Canada and
in your country of residence. (My sister is holds a PR card but isnt resident in Canada, so i dont understand the ties mentioned)

• I am not satisfied that you will leave Canada at the end of your stay as a temporary
resident, as stipulated in paragraph 179(b) of the IRPR, based on the purpose of your visit. (i think this is because of my hubby 6 months stay in US in 2016. can i state purpose as Childbirth in my Letter of Intent)

• I am not satisfied that you will leave Canada at the end of your stay as a temporary
resident, as stipulated in paragraph 179(b) of the IRPR, based on your personal assets and
financial status. (i dont know what more to attach... maybe Pension Statement, Employment & Confirmation Letter which i didnt think necessary as my annual pay was stated on my Letter of Introduction)

i will greatly appreciate any suggestion from the house on how to approach this.

thank you very much
