@Bahdmahnspin for paper application, you submit your application,passport,supporting documents and do biometrics same time at VFS. So if you haven't done biometrics, then he haven't submitted anything. I will advise you request for your passport and apply for U.K visa but I don't understand what you mean by your uncle wants to take you. Are you a minor? Be ready to demonstrate your own ties so as to get your U.K visa approved after which you can apply for Canada TRV when you're back.

Not like he wants to take me lol
He’s a pastor and he’s traveling to UK for a church programme so he wants me to tag along
Re: Canada Visit/tourist Visa Discussion. by NothingDoMe: 5:12pm On Sep 10
@Bahdmahnspin, get your passport back from that agent. Do not agree to anything he says. Dont allow him process any application for you. He may use fake documents to process your application. Even use your passport to commit crime. I dey fear agents oh.

You need a PR or citizen to help you get the gcms. Or you can use a third party website to get the gcms.

Bahdmahnspin:
Please house I’m really confused and I don’t know what to do
My dad gave my uncle some money to give to an agent he knows to start processing my TRV and so far he has sent 120k to him, since 20th May o, we first sent 100k and later 20k for medicals and I know there’s nothing like that but my dad waved it Since then till now I’ve not done my biometrics and I’ve been disturbing my dad for that because I don’t have the agent’s number neither does my dad because my uncle is the middle man between the agent and us, last week my dad said the agent said when it’s time for biometrics I’ll come over to Lagos, biko I don’t understand why it’s taking too long for the biometrics and na paper application. I’m not allowing my dad to pay a dime till I go for my biometrics because we are to balance him 680k total of 800k and I warned them not to stamp any rubbish on my passport till I go for my biometrics..

Secondly my dad’s business partner said we should try and collect my passport from them so he can get me a UK visa since he’s traveling to UK in November, he wants to take me along with him,

My Questions now are:

First, my TRV application is a paper application according to the agent, how long does it take to submit biometrics after submitting the application because it’s four months now and nothing yet,

Secondly, should I wait to submit my biometrics or request for my passport back and go ahead with UK visa

My problem no be money it’s time wasted because I’m ready to wait for my TRV till anytime it’s approved because he said it’s gonna be approved we should just give him time but I don’t wanna end up waiting and miss the UK opportunity ���� if I had given my biometrics I’ll be calm

Landers I need una help oooo
If I were you, I will run so fast. Advise your dad not to give him a dime again. It's obvious you can't get what you have paid back. Collect your passport from him. Most of the agents use fake documents...you don't want to lose your future travel opportunities

As per UK, I'm not sure tagging along with your uncle as an adult looks good enough for a strong application though. Just my thoughts.

Hello house,
Please I need your candid advise on this issue.
I have an approved Canada TRV.
I went there spent a month and came back to Nigeria
Because am working here in Nigeria.
I have not travelled back to canada in the last 53 weeks.
Now I intend to travel for vacation, do I need to re-apply for TRV again.
I still have valid visa on my passport till 2021.
Please kindly assist.
Thanks
Re: Canada Visit/tourist Visa Discussion. by FYsol: 9:54pm On Sep 10
Check if your visa is multiple entry which I guess should be. Be ready for lots of questions at POE this time because the purpose for which you got visa has changed. It won't be a walk in the park like your first trip.

Nairalanders I noticed on this travel section we don't have any forum for people that intend to travel to Canada just for visiting or tourism we only got Canada student visa forum and when people try to ask for help on there people don't render any help. I'm not a Visa guru myself. I created this so people can drop there problem and some Nairalanders that knows better can answer them back. Thanks

I went through the first few pages and didn't see any touristy places listed, any recommendations from anyone?



Note:I might have missed those if they're on the thread, it's 317 pages.

They refused even with a valid usa a visa. My advice is go and apply from inside USA
bibiliscious:


Day 73 - Finally got an update
QTE
I am refusing your application on the following grounds:
• 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.
You are welcome to reapply if you feel that you can respond to these concerns and can demonstrate that your situation meets the requirements. All new applications must be accompanied by a new processing fee.
UNQTE

Gave a detailed LOE showing a day to day itinerary breakdown, even purchased Tourist reservation(Toronto City Pass) worth $72.73 , Hotel reservation and flight reservation all in good order. The honest truth is i legit wanted to go for vacation purposes only so i'm irked.

First Application was rejected due to Family ties ,Second Application rejected due to Purpose of visit , I'm officially done with Canada, will focus on my US visa renewal only going forward

Many Thanks for all your help

After submitting online, you will get a biometric instruction letter in your CIC account between 24hrs to a few days. You will have 30 days to submit your biometrics.

You should show enough funds to cover your budget. Your budget depends on what you want to do in Canada. Use Google to search out activities in the particular area you want to visit.

Valid question.....
I want to know about this too
Re: Canada Visit/tourist Visa Discussion. by FYsol: 2:29pm On Sep 11
This question has been asked on Quora and a former U.S visa officer answered. According to Kathryn Berck, chances of getting the visa is zero except it is under a serious emergency situation.
She said visa officer at U.S Embassy in the other country will feel you are trying to hide something that is why you don't want to apply in your place of permanent residence where the visa officer can better assess you.

Hi guys, my cousin who is a Canadian citizen invited me and my mum to his wedding, so I’m asking since he is willing to foot our bills, do we need to show proof of funds? And what documents do I need to submit for my mum, she’s a business woman, her business isn’t registered with CAC yet, apart from her marriage certificate, what other documents does she need to provide.
Another question is can we do biometric same day we submitted because we are coming from outside Lagos, and is online application same as paper route? Please how do I go about the online route if we decide to use it?
