Damn!!! The process was a hell of a journey for you! Anyways, thank God it ended in joy.

I'm beginning to dislike Canada over its irrational strictness on spouse sponsorship

My dear! I was in one of the worst mental agony of my life! But life is now so sweet being reunited with my spouse and landing as a permanent resident is awesome. So I would say its worth it and I understand why they have to be strict. Really thank God it has ended in joy as you have said.
Thanks.

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.
Hey kindly respond to your mail
I have some questions regarding arrive can and switch health
Also flying with Ethiopian airways
Thank you

Please house I have a question to ask.

There is an application with a medical status that says : You passed the medical exam

After 5 days it changed to:


You do not need a medical exam. We will send you a message if this changes

Please has anyone experienced this before and what could this mean ?

My case is peculiar. If not that I have a good job and I am not that desperate to leave, I can imagine the frustration it could have brought.

Got married Jan. 2020, we were both widows with kids from our late spouses. After pressure from my wife, I decided to submit application for me and my 2 kids in July 2020.

Application: July 2020
AOR: January 28th 2021
Medicals: April 2021
Medical passed May 3rd 2021
Correspondence 1, interview request.
October 21, interview done at IOM in Ikeja and updated as completed.
Pre arrival: October 28

Till now, nothing. My application page on IRCC remains same. I checked for status on another platform.and I saw decision made probably since October.
We had a new baby since September 1st 2021 and I have not seen her. I don't know what else to do.

Planning to put in for visiting by February if nothing comes up before then.

My V.O is Accra, seems they have lots of backlog there.

Application status on my IRCC online account reads we are processing your application and we will send you a message once final decision has been made.

Background check, we are processing
Review of eligibility- we are reviewing whether you meet the eligibility requirements, this has not changed since like forever.

I don't like the idea of GCMS note that takes almost 3months, it proves nothing to me and I don't like to contact any M.P.

Any other useful suggestions?
