kkokoma:
What i do is book Lagos to Toronto (which is the major and cheapest hub) with the major airline, and then separately book from Toronto to my final destination with a local airline like Air Canada or West-jet.

Thank you,I will likely go for this option,but can the local ticket to my final destination be booked one way and it won't raise any brows?and do I book it before leaving nigeria or I can book it there when I am done with my hotel stay?.Thank you.

You can book it (with Expedia or other booking sites) before you leave after taking into consideration the dates and time you would be departing for your final destination. You can reschedule easily if there are any changes

You don’t need to make hotel reservations for visa applications.

Hi.
There is an email you can send use so they prioritise your visa application based on exception (check their website for categories of exempted people.

I sent the mail to them and I got a response in about 10days.

Submitted application 31 Dec 2020
Confirmation of application 8 Feb 2021

I didnt need to do biometrics as I have done few years back.

I sent prioritization email to IRCC 24 March 2021
I got my passport request last week Friday.

IRCC.COVID-TravelExemptions-Exemptionsdevoyage-COVID.IRCC@cic.gc.ca

I hope you find this useful.
Please let's all read their website and follow the instructions before sending a mail as their are strict instructions you should take time out to follow step by step.

All the best

Hello All, I submitted a Visit Visa Application on the 6th March 2020. My passport was returned in December 2020 with a note that my application is still under review and my passport will be requested once that is done. Has anyone here gotten a visa approval within this time frame? Do I really need to follow up on the application? Are they still treating backlog as far back as last year Feb-Mar?

Actually, ignore my previous answer Biko.
She’s your sister.
You can apply for authorization to travel!
I don’t think it matters that she wasn’t the one that invited you.

I have. I submitted my application in April, completed biometrics in October, got my approval in February and receive a request for my passport 2 days ago.
The timeline is super wonky.
If I were you, if you qualify, I’d apply for authorization to travel. That may make them pay attention to your application. Otherwise, maybe just be patient. Eventually, they’ll get around to responding.

Yes bro... Let's assist those that intend to travel on visit... There are ways to package documents and of course applicant's doesn't have to in a rush!

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
