Anyone can submit passport on behalf of the applicants as long as you have copies; signed and stamped copy of the passport data page issued when you go submit your application.

No individual can retrieve your passport except the applicant; unless you cross a certain age, I think Seniors above the age of 65. Alternatively, you can pay #11,280 to VFS to courier your returned passport to the address of your choice should the applicant not be able to travel back to VFS

Hi guys, my mum just did her biometric yesterday in Lagos. She will be heading back to the east soon and I was wondering if it is allowed for my sister who lives in Lagos to go submit mummy's passport when they approve her. What is required for this to happen pls?

Authorization is not required for passport submission. They also stopped accepting authorizations for passport retrieval couple of years ago. Applicants either go in-person or pay for courier service.

geotherm:
Yes. Your mum can give her authorization letter.

Re: Canada Visit/tourist Visa Discussion. by approvedxxx: 11:30pm On Feb 11
Congratulations...... AMEN. I WILL ALSO TESTIFY!!
goingforward:
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.

Final decision has been made on your application already.
Track your app through VFS site, I'm sure your doc is ready for collection.

Be positive

Standard reasons. Based on our family ties in Nigeria and Canada, there weren't sure we would return to our home country.

Officially? No. I didn't order gcms notes. I just deduced that they are not comfortable with family applications.

Hi...am Zeenat and am new here. My family(my husband, my kids nd) relocated to Canada last year may as pr. In January i filed for my mums super visa online. Submitted on the 1st of jan. Got a biometrics letter on the 2nd, biometrics was completed on the 6th of jan. But her application was rejected today.
Reasons:
1) the v.o wasn't satisfied she would return back to home country because of her travel history.
2) because of family ties in Canada and Nigeria.
I will put to bed in a few weeks/days time. Please how can I reapply as soon as possible, and what documents do I need to prove the stated reasons otherwise ��. Thanks
Re: Canada Visit/tourist Visa Discussion. by Markab: 6:49pm On Feb 13
Sorry to hear about her refusal. Could you let us know what you stated as purpose of visit in your invitation letter?

I clearly stated that she's coming to help take care of me and my new born as she has always been my support system; maybe I shouldn't have ��,and also to tour Canada but didn't list the places she will visit. She is 52years. I uploaded receipt of her house rent and shop and stated that it will be renewed when due. I have two siblings, one has completed his hnd at ibadan poly and the baby of the house is awaiting her admission to MITT here in Canada.

It is very Unfortunate.... I think the Super Visa application is a long shot for someone who has not travel out of the country before ( Reason 1), and for the fact that the visa will allow her stay up to 2 years in Canada nullifies her Tie to Nigeria ( Reason 2).

My 2 cent.. apply again but this time for Visitors Visa. After one or two visits, apply again for the Super Visa.

I hope you are working and your family income is more than the requirement. Congratulations in Advance for the new born.
