Submitted May 2nd, Biometrics January 7(for a different application). Medical request on 8th December, done on the 11th and passed on the 16th December. [/quovte]

They supposed to have even asked you to come for Medical long before December.
Anyways, hopefully they will get to you in January

Canada is just keeping spouses apart unreasonably

Passed medicals since 6th December and haven’t heard from them. A friend’s wife passed her’s around august and she is in Canada now.
Your friends wife, where's her visa office? What's her timeline like? Seems they stopped giving out Pre-Arrival and DM since October(may applicants)

Hi Olori, My husband's visit visa got refused. I would like to chat with you to hear the steps you are taking for the reapplication
OloriOfMontreal:


Yes ma'am. smiley
How are you? How's the preparation for your spousal application coming up?

I'll recommend you put in the spousal sponsorship application before you submit a new visit visa request. (This is based on my recent understanding of the 2 streams - Outland vs Inland) This will likely help in convincing the visa officer that you don't intend to stay back in Canada to work, until your spousal PR is approved. Especially since one can't get a work permit with the Outland stream. However feel free to go with whichever option works best for you.

Cheers

Sorry! She should reapply. Nevertheless, when did you apply for the visa and how long does it take them to give their final decision?

Re: Canada Spouse Family Sponsorship Visa/appeal Process by iskilayodele: 4:55am On Jan 11, 2022
Na wa for Canada o! Sponsorship in UK and the rest of Europe is an average of 3 months. I wonder why Canada is this wicked! In contrast, Express entry is 6 months while sponsorship is 12months, is Express entry far more important than spouse sponsorship!? Yet they will be saying they need immigrants but are making processing time a long frustrating one- what an irony

I must say, Nigeria's Bureaucracy is 100% efficient than that of Canada

LANDING GIST!

I just landed in Canada few hours ago via Ethopian airlines from Lagos Airport.

I registered on arrive can, switch health, and printed all documents before arriving Lagos airport.
The guy who pushed my trolley attempted to scam me 7500 for yellow card, amongst other scams, but I remembered narrations on nairaland so I didn’t fall for any. I didn’t spend any money during the journey, but you can give tips as the Spirit leads.

After showing my passport, I passed my bags through the machine just near the Lagos airport door. I then went straight to Ethiopian airlines check-in counter admist the crazy queue. Those check-in staff are not smiling, be prepared with your documents make them nor delay you.
My bags didn’t exceed the limit & I suggest you go at least 4-5 hours before the flight just incase.

After about 4 more security checks, I boarded & arrived addis ababa some hours later where I was able to use the free airport wifi to update loved ones. Ethiopian airlines was ok, nothing bad to say. It was a long flight & having to seat for so long in such confined space does a number on the body.

Arrived Toronto Pearson quite early in the morning & I think that plays a role in how relaxed the airport & staff were as I wasn’t subjected to much questioning. Having all documents on hand in paper really helps. Make sure you’re organized & calm, your documents may speak for you & questions were minimal to none in my case. Don’t be afraid to ask polite questions when looking for directions or clarity.

Since I registered with switch health, I was directed to a shorter queue for arrival covid test which was the last stop before finally exiting the airport. I didn’t pay for the test & I wasn’t told anything about quarantine. I am fully vaccinated & wore my mask & sanitized at all times cos I don’t want a positive covid test result. It didn’t really snow much at the time I arrived, however it is cold here.

Medical passed is the last stage of medical process and it simply means one is medically fit to be admitted into Canada.

Medical upfront is not allowed for spouse sponsorship.

I hope your questions are answered.
