OyiBeeBee:Pls which Lab would you recommend in terms of on time receipt of test results
|Re: Canada Visit/tourist Visa Discussion. by Chirolechick: 3:20pm On Apr 23|
Check the list of approved covid labs on their website, I believe they have one since Emirates and Ethiopian have one

Please Who else requested for authorization letter and yet to get a response ? For those travelling as extended family member.
The wait frustrating.
|Re: Canada Visit/tourist Visa Discussion. by Lexy123: 7:14pm On Apr 23|
My sister hasn't gotten hers also. She submitted April 12, resent with webform this past Monday. When did you submit yours?
|Re: Canada Visit/tourist Visa Discussion. by Beedempsey: 7:24pm On Apr 23|
I first requested for it with my visa prioritization mail in March 23 but visa was approved and I didn't get any authorisation so
I submitted a Web form 19th then I realised I missed a document.
So I resent via email 20th.
|Re: Canada Visit/tourist Visa Discussion. by Lexy123: 7:30pm On Apr 23|
Hopefully they respond soon. She sent a webform on monday and tuesday also after the mail in 12th (she also didnt include a document).
The wait is quite irritating. Please if you get a response, please share.
|Re: Canada Visit/tourist Visa Discussion. by Beedempsey: 7:38pm On Apr 23|

|Re: Canada Visit/tourist Visa Discussion. by Lexy123: 7:59pm On Apr 23|

|Re: Canada Visit/tourist Visa Discussion. by emeldamicheals: 2:28pm On Apr 27|
Pls, which hotel can I book for my mum in Toronto and can I book it from Nigeria here.
uote author=Aro21 post=100528440]I would like to share my experience travelling to Canada with all the new restrictions.
It might help someone cause I learnt one or two things from this forum.
Please note I had my visiting visa since 2019 but never used it.
Firstly I have a family member so I'm be eligible to travel at this time, a family member is either immediate or extended. immediate is a parent, spouse etc. Extended is a sibling, grand child etc ( please refer to the website for further clarifications)
For immediate family members you don't need a statutory form or an authorisation letter but you do for an extended family.
I came in as an extended family member and this was my process
Step 1: Get your family member and yourself to both fill the Application for authorization and statutory declaration
this form is for family member in Canada older than 18 years old there is a different one for a minor. ( check website)
Step 2: Family member goes to a notary/Lawyer to get form signed and pay a fee
Step 3: Email form and other details to IRCC
Step 4: Buy your ticket and prepare to travel
Step 5: Call the Government approved numbers to book a hotel for quarantine
call can only be 48 hrs to departure flight. For this step I paid $1154 which includes hotel, breakfast lunch and dinner for the 3 days and two covid tests one at the airport on arrival and one on day 10 of quarantine). Print your hotel confirmation.
Step. 6: Download the arrive can app and fill in your details, flight, hotel, where you would quaint for the remaining 11 days if your first covid test comes out negative. Print your arrivecan receipt.
Step 7: Do the first covid test in Nigeria before your flight
Step 8: book for the second covid test to be done at the airport in Canada to avoid queues( my advise). you can book on the switch health.ca ( print your appointment)
Step 8: arrive on the day of your flight early because all the things above would be scanned by your airline and sent for approval( not sure who they sent it to. I flew Lufthansa), you have to wait for the approval before you are allowed to board your flight.
Step 9: Get on your flight and arrive Canada( I flew to Toronto, only four international airports are opened at this time)
Step 10: I did immigration twice because they really wanted to confirm I had family and they asked for all the above things mentioned too.
Step 10: grab your bags
Step 11: Do your second covid test at the exit of the airport
Step. 12: Use an airport taxi/shuttle to get to your hotel. All the hotels are around the airport.
Step 13: Start quarantine and wait for your covid test. I came in on a Saturday so didn't get my result till Monday, if you get a negative result earlier you are allowed to check out and go and continue your 14 days quarantine at your preferred location.
I stayed in the hotel for 3 nights, they delivered breakfast, lunch and dinner but they were all oyinbo food so I struggled with that.
Step 14: Checked out on my last day and proceeded to my place of quarantine using an uber.
Step. 15: You have to report on the arrive can for the 14 days so they know if you developed any symptoms or not( quite straight forward)
Step 16: Do your third covid test on day 10, they provide a covid kit at the airport and its picked up at your location. all the instructions are in the kit.
I finished my. quarantine few days ago.
I hope someone finds this overwhelming process helpful. [/quote]

Hi guys, can anyone share with me a format for the prioritization mail sent to IRCC?
Also, while attaching the Authorization and Statutory declaration letter, do I need to attach any other documents in the mail such as international passports, PR cards...?

Pls I need ur candid advice on how to go about the process.... But I don't have anyone in Canada who can invite me ooo... What do I do?
|Re: Canada Visit/tourist Visa Discussion. by Chirolechick: 2:09pm On Apr 29|
You can try double tree, I paid about $1456 for two people
Ethiopian airline is ok though the journey will be long sha, try and book wheelchair for your parents, it’ll ease them of the stress of walking and locating boarding gate etc
|Re: Canada Visit/tourist Visa Discussion. by Chirolechick: 2:12pm On Apr 29|
Don’t stress over things like this, they hardly pay attention. I addressed mine to :
Government of Canada
