Are you kidding me? That is CAD 2,799.04, if you want to apply for Canadian visa then this is the website you need http://www.cic.gc.ca/english/visit/tourist.asp

Requirements: http://www.cic.gc.ca/english/visit/apply-who.asp

If you are going with the hope of converting the visiting visa to resident permit then please keep your job in Nigeria because its going to be almost impossible.

It is an enviable aspiration to aim to travel to Canada. However, let me use this forum to appeal to all prospective travellers. Do not travel into a country with a Visitor's Visa and then hope to 'regularise'(?) your stay. I don't know about other countries, but about Canada, it will not work. Visitor's visa is for Visiting.
Travel Agents will tell you anything to collect your money. That is their job. There are some lovely internet forums (NL travel section included) that can aid you in your quest. If you are literate enough to write on NL, you are literate enough to log on to cic.gc.ca and get information. When my family started the Canadian PR application in 2011, the number of agents used was zero, the amount of extraneous money paid out was also zero. There were many confusing moments but thank God for good Nigerians on internet forums.

In all, get the proper information and don't throw away your money on someone who is promising what he can not give.

That is almost impossible, i know people will talk about getting married to Canadian woman but that is easier said than done, How will you survive while waiting to meet that woman who will agree to marry you? Who will accommodate you throughout that period? I wouldn't encourage anybody to do that, forget about asylum because you are not qualify for one, no war going on in Nigeria, no natural disaster etc.

You can't be sponsor for visit/tourism visa, you also need strong home ties. 90days wait after a refusal not to look desperate to travel and get denied again.

I know how frustrating it can be when you try to get information from the Student Visa session, all you see is "Medical hopefuls" and lots. I tried to find information too when I wanted to apply for my Visitor Visa. Anyway, recently I received a Multiple Entry Visa Canada So, the basic requirement are all in the website: Application form, Family information and all that. Now, other document to submit depends on your purpose of visit. You need to prove to the VO that you will return after your visit. When I returned to the country after my first visit most of my friends thought I was stupid to have returned and I even met few people over there who told me what to do to remain in Canada. I'm glad I was smarter and returned even before my visa expired. Believe me, I will never advice anyone to overstay. Plan to return at least for sake of next application. That is why they really want to make sure you have strong reason to return.

Items that will prove that you will return are: Strong tie to Nigeria, regular employment, fat account balance, assets, and previous travel history.
I hope this will be helpful to you.
I wish you success.



Did you use an invitation letter and how many days did they release your application, I have 10million in my account, is that good enough, e, Married with one kid. Pls advise me more, it will be appreciated, I have 6 months uk as a traveling history.
