Hello all,

Myself and my two kids have just gotten our visas processed in 6 working days.

Anyone with valuable input should please shed some light to my question for clarity purpose.

A visiting visa is just for VISITING. You won't get a work permit. While I don't think Canada would like to educate your child with tax payers money, I believe by law every child has a right to attend school to the high school level. You may get away with that one.

Thank you maternal. However, it is stated in cic website that a spouse of a full time student can apply for an open work permit.

Where i want clarity is - can i still apply for OWP since the coop duration is a mandatory session towards the completion of my spouse education.

T.

Hello everyone,

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.

Oh please, there is nothing miraculous about getting a visa without letter of invitation. You don't need to know someone in a country before going there for tourism.

Do the right things, have the right documents, have very good home ties and 70% of the time, you will get your visa.

This is how it works bro. As a spouse of a foreign student in Canada, you are eligible for a OWP. However, at time of application, you must demonstrate your spouse is enrolled as a full time student in a designated learning institution.

Now that you have a visit visa, when you get to any Canada POE, do not say you want a work permit. Let the CBSA officer process you and your kids as visitors. If you ask for a work permit, even though you are eligible, you might be suspected as having not expressed true intention when you applied for the visit visa OUTLAND. You don't want that wahala trust me.

when you have been landed in Canada with your kids, you can now apply for an open work permit INLAND without having to leave the country. Its perfectly legal and it will be approved if you can paragraph 1 of this response. INLAND applications arr processed quickly too.

yes your 4yr old will be allowed to attend school without study permit. However, you might require a visitor record for that.

Hello Tee12345,

May God bless you my brother. I was already confused when maternal said it's not possible because I read something like that in CIC website.

Pls how do I go about the visitor's record for my son n daughter and is it adviceable we all do our medicals before leaving so as not to delay my Open work permit when applying inland.

Thanks in anticipation of a positive response.

I am a lady though.Thanks once again.....very relieved.

If you already have a visitors visa, you can travel as a visitor. Once you are in the country as a visitor, apply for your open work permit inland. You will be advised how and where to do your medicals by CIC. Also, write a letter you would want a visitor record for the kids. I know its issued at POE's but you will be advised how to get that.

You really dont have anything to worry about as long as your TRV is valid.

You should have applied for your OPW from Nigeria. It would have saved you all the worries. But you will get it as long as your spouse is enrolled full time in a designated learning institution, has a valid study permit and you can show this.

Hello pals,
As africa all our daily routine centered arround miracle.You might have all what it takes and still not get the required result, Even the unexpecting and low ranking country can still dennied one a visa for a living proof that God is behind every Plan.
Always pray for his miracle even you merit It.like some pple will scare us that getting the visa is one thing and allow you in at the POE is Another. Finally in surpport, you truly don't need any invitation ,even have relation to get a visa , but you purpose of visit count.

Wishing you all Sucess.
Every comment on this forum is important either positive or negative ,they all work together to achived desire result.

Am no guru.

Her getting it depends on a lot of factors. Has she traveled before? Where? For how long? When were the trips made? Is she married? Has she got kids in Nigeria? How long has she been working? How much does she earn? Has she got assets in nigeria? Does she have history as a tourist? What's her itinerary in Canada like? Does she know anyone in Canada? If its first time out of Nigeria, why opt for Canada?

All documents she present must answer the above questions. Questions not exhaustive. Canada visit visa isn't easy to get but its possible. You have to prepare well.

Best of luck.

Thats why i will attach land sale aggreement to my visa application showing i sold a piece of land belonging to me for 1.5 million. I think that will show the source of fund. And for proof of ties to nigeria, i intend to attach my vehicle papers and papers for another piece of land i have. Is that ok, or is there other things i need to change/add. Any further advice will be appreciated please

@phema this people want to see that u have a job even 10million Statement of account might not get you a visa sometimes. You need to show you av a job you need to resume to after your visit. Try and get some ways you could get a company letters if anyone could help and an account that shows how money been coming in. U can't just said u sold a land and u wanna travel. That means once u get there you wanna get settled since u don't even av a job here. So try and see if you could get some one that owns a company to help in that. Don't just lodge money in account trying to prove you can afford your trip. My 1pound

So Justwise, what is your take on the issue. Is it possible to get a tourist visa without having a job? Can't a stronger proof of ties substitute for the unemployed status?
