Please brother in the house, I need help from you.
I want to travel using Tourist visa to just apply for study visa, please can I go with one way flight ticket and Just leave from the place to my school in Europe?

Will there be issue at Airport ?

Sure you may get issue at the airport and not allowed board the plane or entry to ur destination because travellimg to a country where you have no resident with a one way ticket on a tourist visa is not accepted practice but your best option is buy a refundable ticket..then when you get to the country where you want to apply visa ,you can apply for refund on your ticket and buy a new ticket to your next destination after you secure your student visa.

tellalexander:

and when exactly did you apply for this visa?

I stated the application date on the original post.

you said you got ur biometric validity letter on February 7,and another one on February 8?? you can’t be sent validity letter twice!

Well, I would have said same thing should i not be following this thread and reading people’s update. You would have been correct if you said this two years ago. Correspondence letter used to be just the final approval letter you received from IRCC after PPR and your profile updates to “Approved”. Back then, you submit biometric for every temporary application.

Hello everyone,
I have been a silent reader of this insightful thread. We are ready to apply for TRV for family vacation during the summer. Due to the long processing time these days we thought to start early. We hope to go the online route.
One of my kids is a U.S citizen, pls do I need to include a copy of her passport to the documents I'm to submit?

Thanks in advance..
Re: Canada Visit/tourist Visa Discussion. by megastu(m): 11:23pm On Feb 09
You don't have to. Just mention his details and that he won't be needing visa because he is an American citizen. I think there is a space for those details on the application form.

Thanks brother, but from my research I got that refunding takes long time before you get back your money.

One of Nairaland brother gave me another option to book multiple flight ticket.to Eygpt after I get my student visa, I should move to my school.

How did you see this option too?
No one is inland of knowledge
Re: Canada Visit/tourist Visa Discussion. by Chibudollar: 11:09am On Feb 10
Please if a passport summited for visa is taking long to being approved is that a good or bad sign

Congratulations.
This biometrics correspondence, is it to confirm that your previous biometrics is ok and accepted or to do another one?
I submitted paper application and chose not to do another biometrics because I did one in 2017.
Re: Canada Visit/tourist Visa Discussion. by tellalexander: 8:27pm On Feb 10
How can I track my Canada visa application..it says no record..and I tried to link it to an online account it says no data available
Re: Canada Visit/tourist Visa Discussion. by burk: 9:52pm On Feb 10
The Biometric letter was to confirm that my biometric is still valid, immediately the passport request letter dropped.

Who is she giving this letter to? My sister or the Visa office center in Lagos
Re: Canada Visit/tourist Visa Discussion. by geotherm: 3:53pm On Feb 11
Your sister. Alternatively check vfs website you can download authorization form.
She will fill it and sign it then your sister can use it to get her passport. That was what we did. Either way is acceptable

Re: Canada Visit/tourist Visa Discussion. by goingforward: 10:30pm On Feb 11
With gratitude to God my mum's visa was approved!!!!!!!!!


Online application submitted on 16th December 2019
Submission confirmation on 16th December 2019
Biometric Correspondence letter on 14th January 2020
Original passport request on 21st January 2020

We submitted every and any document that we could think of that would make her application strong.

There was a mistake on my mum's application, she uploaded the Application for Visit Visa twice ( in the place of travel history).
Thank God we discovered it and the travel history document was sent through the IRCC webform.

In my case, my mum was given a visa up till the time of her passport expiration.

I pray that for everyone trusting God for his or her own God will grant you favor in your application in Jesus name.
God is faithful.

goingforward.
