Please through which platform??. Kindly assist. My brother has been there for over 6yrs now. Although not yet PR

Whats your brother status in Canada?
Did he send you an invitation letter?

You will need some documents from him, and his status might determine if you qualify to reapply or maybe you would have to wait it out

You mean someone under IRCC ban can get a U.S visa? I had thought they share info. Please shed more light. Thanks



@FYsol
Let me explain in other not to confuse you. I applied for TRV in 2015 and to be honest,i did'nt know my Tax clearance was fake ( complete fake). I got a PL and i replied . In my reply,i included my financial statement for the year ( and pointed out where there was an expense for tax ) i appealed to the Visa officer by stating the auditing company committed the fraud ( the truth). In the refusal letter,it was stated that i have been refused based on Misinterpretation.
Note: there was nowhere in the letter that states or stated that i have been banned. I simply assumed "that was the penalty for such offense".
I got my US and other visas after my TRV was refused.

If you have an immediate family you can re apply via the portal; https://portal-portail.apps.cic.gc.ca and if not you have to wait. Current processing times still remains around 303 days.

Yes canada has a shortage of tradesmen like a Welder. You should apply as a skilled worker. If you get accepted go back to school and get your red seal. Red seal means you're qualified to work in canada, USA, or some places in Europe. Nobody acknowledges or respects nigerian qualifications here which makes sense.

Please I applied for tourist visa since last year but no response till date? Should I reapply again?

Good day, I have Canada visiting visa since 2019 and I intend traveling to Canada again for a visit by December this year before my visa expires next year. Please is there a way whereby I can stay fully in Canada because I don’t intend coming back to Nigeria again and I want to use the opportunity to look for women to marry over there even if to pay the person to assist me in getting the PR of Canada before looking for job over there because I know with your visiting visa you can’t work. I need people in Canada that can assist me to get accommodation in Toronto because that’s where I want to visit if I travel. Please advise me on this matter. I have my own funds but I want to use my visiting visa to relocate fully to Canada
You can change your visitor visa in Canada now when you find job and have employment letter stiil February 28 2022

Re: Canada Visit/tourist Visa Discussion. by Motheexplorer: 4:57pm On Sep 24
UPDATE:
Ive finally gotten my email to transmit my passport to the VFS. However I must state that I reapplied after the September 7th update. So new timeline:

Fresh application: September 8th, 2021
Response: September 24th, 2021
Timeline: 13 working days.
Might actually be helpful to resubmit your application based on their update. For ease these are the documents I submitted with online my application(I submitted the additional documents via the webform):
1. Application for authorization & statutory declaration for extended family members
2. Biodata page and drivers license of my brother
3. Letter of invitation from my brother
4. Proof of relationship between my brother end I (birth certificates in this case)
5. Proof of change of name (I’m married so I needed to have documents bearing my maiden name)
6. Detailed quarantine plan
7. Biodata page and birth certificate of my daughter, she’s Canadian.

Motheexplorer:
They said a couple of documents were not uploaded “authorization form” & “status of Canadian family member” so my application could not be processed. Which is weird as we used the web form and crossed checked everything. I’ve done a fresh application, submitted via mail this time and hopefully it’s sorted soon. However, my husband got his. His sister has PR & he applied just like me using her as his extended family member.

Entire process & timing:
Submitted 26th July: application authorization to travel + visa expedition
Response August 23rd: Visa approval
Passport delivered august 26th: to the VFS in Abuja via DHL w a return envelope.
Passport pick up September 3rd: DHL Abuja
Total process took about 5 weeks from start to finish.
[What's the update
quote author=Motheexplorer post=103922724]Hi Everyone,

I literally just found out about this request for authorization to travel and a little bit of hope has been restored. I have a pending application since November 2020 and I fall under the extended family exempt category. My brother lives in Canada with his family and my daughter is also Canadian. I’ll be sending in my application this week using all the tips I’ve read here and will update on how it goes. I’ve seen that apart from the notarized statutory declaration, my birth certificate and my brothers & perhaps a quarantine plan will also help my application? Is there anything else I’m missing outside the usual (Biodata page, drivers license etc?) Keeping my fingers crossed and hoping they give a positive response.

Both. GC key was for my visitors visa application (I did another one on the 8th of September). IRCC portal was for uploading all the documents as proof of exemption(also submitted this on the 8th of September) .
