@lalavita. Thank you so much bro! I have both paper acceptance letter and invitation letter from the conference organizers and I have my sch doc intact. I even have a reference letter from the foreign company where I work part time and I will do as you suggested for the co-director.
Meanwhile, I was actually planning to use the fixed deposit majorly (which is only a monthly renewed investment) and the foreign bank statement as a back up because my Naija acct is not actively in use.
Finally, Do you have an idea of how long the letter of introduction should be? Once again Thank you and God bless.
|Re: Canada Visit/tourist Visa Discussion. by lalavita: 2:41pm On Jan 31, 2015
What is your primary source of income? the foreign company? Then be sure to include the letter from them and also reference them in your intro letter.
Do you have payslips from them? You can also add 6 months payslip and any income tax docs if available.
Now to your funding of the trip. You need to CLEARLY show you can comfortably afford it. e.g if you only have 2k in your account, that means after buying ticket...no money left. Not logical that your entire income will just go on a trip.
Right now this seems like the weakest point in your app.
I am not 100% sure how your own fixed deposit works but you need to show you have immediate access to the money and you plan on using it to fund the trip. The impression with fixed dep is usually that you do not have immediate access.
Perhaps a letter stating that you have immediate access to the funds.
You can also explain better in your intro letter.
As per length of intro letter, I would say one page. No need for 2 much long story.
Intro Letter. You can use sub-headings and provide details under each and reference docs included in your app package.
- About Me
- Current Occupation - PhD Student
- Current Employment - Job Details
- Reason for and Details of Trip
- Funding for Trip
- Ties to Nigeria
Forgot to ask before, if you are married, you can also add your marriage certificate and a wedding pic. This serves as a home tie
You can also add a flight ticket reservation for your trip (dont buy o)
Above all, be 100% honest and make sure you stick to the terms of your visa and come back.
All the best.

Once again thank you for the info sir! The foreign work is a part time cash payment job in which there is no payment slip, due to my status as a full time student but I have been there for few years and I normally get reference for my trips. The 2m is in Naija fixed deposit which is about 10k usd and that is the major fund I intend to use for the trip. I can get a letter for immediate access to the fund if GTB will give or is it advisable to cancel the fix and have the money in the account and get SOP?
Meanwhile, I was considering the co-director affidavit as a supporting home tie to the Land doc since I'm not married yet..... Finally, I can not over stay or stay in any country illegally for a min, so the issue of coming back is not a problem.

Hey guys, what do you think my chances are for a visitor visa with these documents
1. Completed visa application forms
2. five day tour by a canadian tour agency booked and paid for
3. Round trip air tickets booked and paid for
4. One week hotel booking paid for
5. Two months statement of account with 1.5 million naira, plus a 500, 000 naira fixed deposite account
6. Land and vehicle documents to my name
7. Photocopies of passport with travel history to two countries
8. Recently became unemployed but helps in managing the family business
9. An intro letter stating all the places i intend to visit in detail
reason for the advance payment of round trip air ticket and hotel plus tour is to show willingness to return after my visit
|Re: Canada Visit/tourist Visa Discussion. by bubsykay: 7:56pm On Feb 01, 2015
Are you married?
Did you provide documents for the family business employment? (source of fund)
Anyway! It looks good and pray it comes out well. Kindly let us know when you applied and how it goes.

RetailCity01:Our God is great my brother, it only the people that believe in there efforts and wisdom will not believe in God's miracle. I was denied once but I believe God will give me your type of miracle (2yrs multiple) I claim it . Regarding your question, just find another conference and make a booking ,explain to them at port of entry if they ask about your previous conference ni o ,that you have some urgent business or job issues to attend to .
|Re: Canada Visit/tourist Visa Discussion. by RetailCity01: 1:21pm On Feb 03, 2015
Thank you Brother! Miracle happen every day.
|Re: Canada Visit/tourist Visa Discussion. by cronsberg: 1:25pm On Feb 03, 2015
I ain't married, and unemployed. By helping in managing the family business, i don't mean in any official capacity, as in just goes there once in a while do this and that, so no official papers exist. As to the source of fund, i don't think an embassy will ask a source of fund as long as the money is not monstrous, asking is the job of the E.F.C.C and not the embassy. But even if asked, i can provide a sales agreement document for my land. As to home ties, i can provide my car and land documents, statement of fixed deposit account, family pictures to prove upper middle class background which means i must come back to my family(saw on the embassy site that family pics can be included in the application). and oh, my statement of account is only two months old. so with this explanation, did i improve my chances, or is there any suggestions as to ways of improving my chances.
i don't know why simple visa application has to be this difficult anyway. too much strictness, and documentations. Shouldn't a single person want to go on tourism? so an unemployed person shouldn't want to enjoy vocation even if they got the means?

|Re: Canada Visit/tourist Visa Discussion. by ycoxyng: 5:40pm On Feb 03, 2015
@All, this thread is long overdue. I applied for Canadian Visa last year with my whole family of 5 and we were granted 2 years multiple visa. although I have listed the documents and forms that we filled in the other thread. I will make effort to list it here before the week runs out. cheers to everyone.

RetailCity01:Reasons why you can't get a job in Canada on a visit visa.
Architecture is a regulated profession and Employers would demand for your SIN card/number. You can get a job that might pay cash to hand though but they are usually much lower than minimum wage.
|Re: Canada Visit/tourist Visa Discussion. by justwise(m): 7:49am On Feb 04, 2015
Indeed...God pass VO....did you state in your visa application form that you will be abusing your visiting visa?

You'll be flagged in the system and eventually deported. Working is not even an option.

maternal:i suggest you advice people here not Condemning anyone. You go scare ppl away from this Thread oo ... Better list the options to safe a life .
|Re: Canada Visit/tourist Visa Discussion. by maternal: 10:27pm On Feb 04, 2015
Just telling the truth. All these boys think their ideas are original. Not only does this man think he can stay illegally, he also thinks he can practice being an architect. These ideas are comical.
|Re: Canada Visit/tourist Visa Discussion. by tee12345(m): 10:44pm On Feb 04, 2015
Observe the rules. If you want to work, apply for a Work Visa. Nothing stops you from doing that if you are eligible.
A visitors visa (B or V) is for visit purpose only. You shouldn't seek employment with that.
|Re: Canada Visit/tourist Visa Discussion. by RetailCity01: 8:03am On Feb 05, 2015
Bro! I try not to understand your point of view!cos 90% of pple abroad today irrespective of their status always have a testimony.in any step in life we should allow God to take care of the system.
When God is not yet finished No deportation cos to every achievement we need to take a MOVE, ASK GOD for HElping Hand and have FAITH.
Thanks for your comment well said but Nothing is Impossble.

I just got a Canadian visa today for me, my wife and daughter. And it took less three weeks!
I filled and printed form, then got it sign and straight to VFS Canada Visa center. I applied for the purpose of a tourist.
We really didn't have plenty money but we had enough to cover the trip. We had just N1.5million in our bank statement.
But before I applied I didn't a small research here just to know people's experience. You just need deligence.
See my package documentation:
1. Hotel reservation (used my GTBank mastercard)
2. Statement of acct.
3. Marriage cert.
4. Fixed investment letter
5. Daughter's birth cert.
6. Travel plan: my itinerary (tourist attractions I intend to visit) and breakdown of expense (cost of flight, taxi, local transport etc)
7. Employment letter
6. Copy of Annual leave approval
7. Work ID.
8. ...of course two passport photo! THAT'S ALL!
I let them know I don't have anyone in Canada and I intend to go with my wife and kids. No invitation, so the hotel.
Well, how did I convince them I'll return to Nigeria? I really can't tell. I suspect it's our travel history, been to the US, UK and Switzerland. Still, I'm not too sure. One thing I did was being very meticulous in arranging the above docs.
Multiple entry for one year. That's not bad.
Wish you luck.
