Maybe we should just obey instructions? I don't know, these people don't make mistakes. I 'll go to vfs with the requirements and talk to them. If they say submit, I don't care if it gets stamped on the moon,as long as it comes back to me. Afterall our application was processed in another country aswell. Maybe it has something with this present Accra holdup and India is less busy? I don't know, just thinking out loud.

Congrats. I am also a silent reader. Got PPR today.

My timeline is as follows:
ITA June 25
AOR August 20
Medicals Passed Sept 15
PPR December 6

However, I just noticed that in the Ready for Visa Email I was asked to send my passport and photo to the visa office in New Delhi India. Most Nigerians I know were asked to send theirs to the Visa Office in Accra.

Has this happened to others before?
What do I do?
Do I comply with this instruction?

Congrats to all who received the golden email. It's been emotional. My prayers are with all the hopefuls. You'd get yours. Trust in God and don't worry to much.

All, I will say is this: DONT ALLOW ANYONE STOP YOU ON THIS JOURNEY. I AM NOT SAYING CANADA PROVIDES ALL OUR SOLUTIONS BUT IT IS AN OPTION. HAVING OPTIONS IS PART OF LIFE SO PLEASE GO FOR IT. ANOTHER THING I WOULD SAY IS "DO IT NOW" DONT DELAY. POLICIES CHANGE EVERYDAY AND THE CANADIAN GOVERNMENT CAN CANCEL IT(GOD FORBID). US VISA LOTTERY IS GONE, UK TOO GONE, SCOTLAND GONE. NOW IT AUSTRALIA AND CANADA. QUEBEC IS REDUCING INTAKES BY 20% STARTING 2019. CANADA ELECTIONS TAKES PLACE NEXT YEAR. GINGER GUYS TO AVOID STORIES THAT TOUCH.

IT WILL SURELY END IN PRAISE.

Sister don relax cos I sabi say I get 90 days
Now I go dig for my passports; only to realise it had my wrong place of birth. Had to look for my birth cert to make a new one. Had an affidavit done and new passport issued. My last baby also needed a passport. I spent all day at the passport office cos this pikin won’t take picha. I was so burned I nearly took her out of the application(I was that frustrated). She eventually took it with the help of her nanny.
I relax my body and continued to gather docs
POF: 100% gift deed from my brother in the UK. I added my own money dou and pushed it all to Stanlin Investments. I showed both my last 6months bank statement, bank letters and investment letters. All very easy to get
Proof of Employment: very easy
PCC: another walk over
I do lasi lasi for here sha. I gathered docs to upload on July 13th only to realise I needed upfront medicals����
How did I miss that? My deadline was 25th July 2018.
To make matters worse, hubby is in London and his earliest appt was 6th Aug!!!
See madam sweating!!! Called IRCC severally and couldn’t get through. Wanted to find out if submitting appointment will be enough and then upload the medicals once it’s ready. When I eventually got through agent said I can do that but my application can be considered as incomplete.
No choice but to decline invitation. I was morosed. Was a shadow of my self awaiting next draw. Declined on 18th July and got another ITA on 25th July.
Did medicals on 6th Aug
Hubbys medicals on 10th
Wrote LOE to explain change in passport, POF, Spouse unaccompanying
AOR - 11th Aug
MEP- 13th Sept ( my daughters birthday)
Biometrics submitted -17th Sept
ADR - 18th Oct
Authorization to travel for the kids for my husband. Had 7days to submit. Lawyer disappointed hubby on the last day. It was God who made him get another one without an appointment to notarize them. Uploaded on the 7th day.
ADR- 7th Nov
RPRF. Paid same day
Ghost update - 16th Nov
ADR changed to NA - 27th Nov
Filled a web form to inquire abt application status on 5th Dec as trying to call IRCC proved unsuccessful.
6th Dec- Agent replies that they have made a decision and will communicate in due course
PPR - 7th Dec
Woke up this morning to plenty congratulatory messages on various Cannyland platforms.
I said nothing spoil, make I check my mail too.
Voila..... PPR sitting right there.

My heart is overwhelmed. I have been through some shorty period these past years and God has given me an opportunity to smile again.
It has indeed ended in praise.
Thanks Nairaland. U people are awesome. I chanced on this platform after my AOR though but it is still been super helpful.
May the PPR rain continue for everyone waiting.

But they requested the passports to be sent to India o! I am reading same for all those who got PPR today. Na wa o!

Should we just take to india or request to be brought to Accra

Its PPR my country people. I got the golden email this morning 4am Naija time in my Spam folder. I have been a silent reader and follower of this thread and I must say you guys have been really great and wonderful. I will write my story as short as I can.

I made up my mind to relocate in December 2017, immediately I paid for WES and IELTS and Lautech transcripts before Christma. I had the IELTS in Jan 2018 and God helped me I cleared it in one sitting L.R.W.S. 8,9,7,7 I used youtube videos all through to practice. My UK uni sent the transcripts to WES FOC, then the wait began for Almighty Lautech to send transcripts to WES, there were alot of back and forth, but they eventually sent it in March after sending a very worded mail to the DVC and Registrar, dont ask how I got their email, lol.

WES completed evaluation in May, I entered the pool in June and I got ITA with the round of June 13 with CRS 469. I had to wait till August to submit the PR application as I was out of the country and didnt get back till July ending. I had the medical test at Q-Life, they wasted time, but I just kept cool and got it done with. PCC was done by a police officer in my office for 5k.

I submitted the application on August 11, then the wait began, Medical passed in Sep. 17, did biometrics the next day. I got RPRF in Oct 17th and for a reason the wording of the letter got me confused and I thought PPR was just like days away, ever since then I have been unable to sleep, checking CIC account several times a day to see any movement.

Just yesterday, I decided to get a life and start learning something new which should distract me from checking CIC every hour. And all Glory to God PPR dropped this morning asking me to send passport to New Delhi office.

Thanks all for your valuable contribution, you guys are the best. Wish everyone success all round.

All the recipients seem to be advised to send passports to India. IRCC know they're resident in Nigeria. I suggest you just send passports to India.

Unless VFS has issues with that.

Guys, I am confused as well. Just had a chat with VFS India and below is our conversation. Please let me know if you have any new info.

Thanks


Dear Baba , Welcome to the Live chat support.
Dear Baba ,Now you are chatting with Thristo Titto George Kokkadan and your chat interaction ID is : 103981
Thristo: Thank you for contacting the VFS chat support. How may I assist you today?
Baba : Good Morning
Thristo: Good Afternoon.
Baba : I received a mail from Canada Immigration to send my passport to New Delhi for stamping
Baba : for Visa
Baba : just wondering how to go about this since I reside in Nigeria
Thristo: Sure, I would help you in this regard.
Thristo: You can submit your passport and 2 copies of VFS consent form along with the documents as mentioned in the passport request letter in person or through a representative at any VFS Visa Canada Application Centre in India.You need to pay the fees in Cash at the VFS counter. Package Transmission : - INR. 441/- per applicant
Baba : I understand you but I am based in Nigeria
Baba : I live in Nigeria
Thristo: Ok.'
Thristo: But as you mentioned on your letter it is mentioned New Delhi that is the reason I have mentioned these details.
Baba : Yes it says I should send my passport to VFS new delhi but I live in Nigeria
Baba : can I share the email I received from Canada Immigration?
Thristo: Its not required.
Thristo: So, how may I assist You?
Baba : my question is: How do I get my passports to NewDlhi?
Baba : *Delhi
Thristo: You will have to come in person.
Baba : This is in reference to your application for permanent residence. To finalize your application, we require:



1) Passports

VFS is our trusted partner for safe and secure passport transmission. Using VFS services is the only way to submit your passport. Contact VFS in India (www.vfsglobal.ca/canada/india) or in Nepal (www.vfsglobal.ca/canada/Nepal) and pay the requisite fees for the Passport Transmission Services . A separate envelope is required for each passport.
Baba : This is the part of the email I received
Thristo: Or you may check with the High Commission in Nigeria. If you can submit it over ther.
Baba : So I have to come to India?
Thristo: With the Canadian High Commission in Nigeria.


hachikaru:
Maybe we should just obey instructions? I don't know, these people don't make mistakes. I 'll go to vfs with the requirements and talk to them. If they say submit, I don't care if it gets stamped on the moon,as long as it comes back to me. Afterall our application was processed in another country aswell. Maybe it has something with this present Accra holdup and India is less busy? I don't know, just thinking out loud.

Congrats to all PPR recipeints. Let the rain continue Father! As regards sending to India, i think you guys need to get to VFS Abj or Lag and hear what they have to say. Chances are you will pay there and they courier it to India same way they did when it was sent to Accra for stamping. Please anybody that goes this morning should give us feedback and also update us when they get their passport back so we can have an idea how long it would take to get the passport back. May the maple land favor all of us and I pray for strength and patience for the rest of us as we wait( I have checked my profile a gazillion times this morning lmao).
