Hello everybody
I’m a student currently in Canada and my program ends in August. I’m getting married this year. What are the chances of my spouse getting SOWP approval during my one year post graduate work permit?
Is it better to apply for SOWP during my study period?



Yes. It's better to enable him plan for this long time visa processig time by adding the remaining time with study and PGWP since the processing time presently is 52 weeks although things will improve soon Sha , because dis crazy long processing time cannot continue

Why is Nigeria processing time different from all these countries. Kenya and Ghana is even faster. We need help!!! Kenya, Ghana, India (7 weeks processing time as at March 23rd) while Nigeria is 52 weeks.

Hello everybody
I’m a student currently in Canada and my program ends in August. I’m getting married this year. What are the chances of my spouse getting SOWP approval during my one year post graduate work permit?
Is it better to apply for SOWP during my study period?

To be eligible to apply for SOWP for your spouse, you have to be working in either Noc A, O or B and have at least 6 months left on your work permit. You also need a ref letter from your employer & 3 payslips.

So let’s assume you will get the required job soon after you get your work permit; you will have to work for about 2 months to get the 3 payslips. Take away 2 months from 1 year, you have 10months left on your work permit. Who knows how long it’s gonna take ircc to process your application. If by the time they make a decision on your file & you have less than six on your WP, your application would be refused.

So if you have one year work permit and you aren’t 100% sure you will get a job in noc O, A or B immediately after you graduate, you are putting yourself in tight situation.

You can not apply for your spouse now because you guys aren’t married yet. If you aren’t sure of getting the required job soon after graduation, I would suggest you extend your study permit & apply sowp for ur spouse as a student. Sowp is sometimes easier for students than workers

Hello everyone, please I would like to ask these questions. I want clarifications on this please.

I am 28 years old and I currently applied to a few colleges in canada for a post graduate certificate program. I know I would get a good response soon.
It's a one year program, but my questions would be numbered below.

1. I am in the process of getting married, bride price fully paid. We plan to take things slow though, so I don't know if I should apply as a married woman or not. I am thinking of ways he can join me in canada.

2. Is this possible with a post graduate certificate?

3. Won't this disturb my PR application after my pgwp....

4. Will hubby need to show some funds in his account?

5. Should we do a court marriage to show certificate?


Thank you

Congratulations on ur study permit approval

Since u did not apply with them you should be able to do that since it was PhD and it is likely you have grant or scholarship

Anyway I think you have to be in Canada to apply for them because some of the documents you need to attach ( study permit) to there application will be issued at the point of entrance.

Hi, I’m applying for a study permit and I need to know if my statement of account must show my salary for the past 6 months. I’m using a domiciliary account and it doesn’t show my salary.

Also, are there any WhatsApp groups one can join for Canada relocation purposes?
Thank you so much

I copied this from the study permit thread, I have not gotten a PPR yet, so I am not sure, but I hope this helps

You have to go to DHL office
@
Isolo Expressway,
near Toyota Bus-Stop/7 & 8 Bus-stop,
New Airport Rd Junction
Isolo
Lagos

There might be other DHL branches in Lagos though, you can google & check for the one's near you

You can also go for UPS

And take note, the DHL Office @ Nahco ,MMIA , Lagos don't courier this type of documents reason is ,they only deal with documents going overseas ,not documents going to Domestic Locations like VFS, Lekki.

2) Yes you would be charged


When you get to this DHL office at ISOLO, Lagos, the Security man would give you a form to fill.


This is the Address you will mail it to

Canada Visa Application Centre
Ground Floor, The Manor
Plot 110, Admiral Ayinla Way, Lekki Phase 1
Lagos
Nigeria

Documents to go with to the DHL Office

- Two copies of your international passport data page
- Your International Passport itself
- Passport request letter
- Biometric confirmation slip (the document you were given after u did your Biometrics)
-Two copies of signed VFS consent forms

Download the VFS Consent Form Via the link below

Put everything in a Big Brown Envelope,

Write your FULL NAME, ADDRESS, PHONE NO. & Email Address on the Envelope boldly

Hello everyone,
I hope we are all doing well.
I applied for my PR through spousal sponsorship in April 2020 and I am currently in Canada as I have a visitor's Visa.
Recently, I got a job offer in Canada with the condition of getting a work permit and I don't know if there is any way advice on how to go about it.
P.S my husband is a PR.

Thank you for your help.

Congratulations madam, yesterday was ur day of celebration....many more of that
U need ur work permit to apply and that can only be issued at the point of entrance

Since ur class is online would u be allowed in for the work permit to be issued yet? Honestly I don't know that dynamics

But if it is possible that might be good so you can apply on time due to dis crazy processing time of 52 weeks

One thing am sure of is that it would soon go back to the usual 13 weeks because last month Ghana had that crazy processing time of 45 weeks and it just drop to 7 weeks all of a sudden and it has been stable since then

Just work around anything that would enable you apply as soon as possible
