I don't see anything wrong with his statement.

If an applicant does not move the spouse's work experience to personal history, he/she will have to submit the spouse' reference letter.

A PA may wish to include the spouse reference letter because the bulk of POF came from the spouse.

Someone structured her application like that and explained in her PPR story on an earlier thread.

Reference letter should come from PA alone. Every other thing can sort themselve out.

You see, I decided to reply you just for the benefit of others.

In trying to stamp your authority on this process, you clearly did not get my advice to Op.

Some months back, someone on an earlier thread reported that she/he got an ADR for spouse work reference and I think even pay stubs, even though the spouse was not the PA and employment was in Personal History.

The VO wanted to ascertain that the spouse could come up with such amount for POF and the only way to do that was to verify his/her work experience that was clearly placed in personal history.

Back to my advice to the Op, and I hope you'll be calm enough to not miss it this time.

If a large chunk of their POF would be from the spouse, it's advisable to include his work reference letter.

Story in Full

I was never a fan of leaving Nigeria until October 2014, when I just relocated to Abuja. I was in one of my paddy's house and heard him discussing with his aunt about FSWP. I picked interest suddenly and then joined him nah so we start. We were mis-informed then that we would have to get a Canadian Immigration lawyer to be able to scale through. So we employed Abrams & krochak and started paying those guys oh. We spent about 1.3m individually and nothing came out of it. Our ECA came out after about 6 months with ICAS Canada. When Abrams started asking for money payment, I just jejely told my fried that I quit, cos for about a year, we were busy completing one single form oh, we will fill it and he will send it back that we have to re-fill. This went on for like 4 times so I got tired and decided to let it go.

Fast forwarded to 2016, I started thinking about leaving this country again and was introduced to the US study VISA thread. I started following the thread, and by April 2016, I had registered to write GRE for PhD study in the US. The result came out but was not enough to get me an admission with funding, a total of 297 (V:150, Q147 & AW: 4.0). At this time I was advised from the forum to write TOEFL (another test of English I had been running away from) as that would boost my chances of getting funding. I wrote and scored 97, but then, it got me admission in 2 schools but no funding. I quit again as I had no means of raising fund to study for PhD degree.

But in January 2017, My new year resolution was to ensure I do everything humanly possible to relocate from this Naija. then I started following this thread but only during my most free periods, so I was not really concentrating. It then made the whole process look too tough for me to complete, though I was not scared of IELTS any longer since I had written TOEFL already. But I could not start.

Then the next month I stumbled on the Canadian Study VISA thread as I was already stylishly eyeing Canadian Schools. I applied to UAlberta, UofT, and two other schools, In short, I got MBA admission into Rotman's Business School but yet no funding.

Then by October 2017, I told wifey I was not interested anymore and came back to this thread oh, she tried convincing me to stick to one plan as it wasn't good the way I have been jumping from one to another without seeing it through. By that time some of the people I was reading their post had gotten COPR and I was still yet to start. I then started with ECA, and the rest was history


ITA
I missed the draw of July 25th Because my ECA report came in that same morning and I was on my way to Lagos from Abuja by road, Nah so network fail me oh. e pain me die as I missed ITA just with 12 mins

POF - Family of 4; I used 100% Gift Deed and also supported it with my Pension Certificate. I fixed the fund for two months and had to roll over three times, the last one being just last Friday and the confirmation mail came in just 20mins before the PPR mail grin I also submitted my six months salary account statements even though shingbain no dey inside. buhahahahahaha


LETTER OF EXPERIENCE
I got letters from my last employer only and didn't bother to include the current employer since I had only spend barely two months at that time. I also did and LOE to explain this part. the LOE also covered name issue on wifey and first son's passport, together with their 'same and one person' affidavit.

Medicals - (My greatest challenge even though I knew many people scaled through this) I had ADR for additional test due to my HBV status and that delayed a bit until 2nd November before I could pass medicals. The request came actually before AOR cos our medicals was upfront at Consultants Practice, but was not ready until after Biometric request as because I was using one very meticulous Gastro from Lagos Island General Hospital.


This is the end of my Story ooooh cool


Oya, Prof Ralph, come and give me my 10/10....I cannot coman go an kee myself

But before I leave, I wish to sincerely appreciate everyone on this thread especially @Newmum, Chai... That lady unknowingly did a lot for me on this journey. At a time, I was only interested in whatever she writes cos they were always addressing my issues directly then. May God in his infinite mercies continue to bless her and everyone on this journey, both the landed seniors, newly approved and the Jambites among us.

We will all have a a reason to laugh last by the special grace of God. I am happy today because God has crowned all my long time effort and it has finally ENDED IN PRAISE. cheesy

Once again I thank God and I am thanking everyone here.

PEACE!!!

Wow, I don join oh!
Thank you Jesus!
You are indeed a faithful God, even in our unfaithfulness!

This whole journey started around September, 2017. Did my first international pp. Started WES registration and didn't continue. Lost the zeal and moved on!
In March 2018, I picked interest and decided to start with ielts. Took 2mths to convince hubby( with prayers o). By May we registered for ielts for a July date cos I needed 1whole mth+ to read and get ready! We took the test and got good scores at one sitting!

The journey to and fro IMSU started for ECA, using WES, we missed the waec palaver by 1wk,(God at work). ECA got ready at the end of September.

Profile was created with crs of 444. We expected ITA at the October 3 draw, but God had other plans, and it was cut at 445. We had booked medicals at IOM, Abuja for October 8. We thought of cancelling and rebooking.
(Those of you who live in Abuja and Lagos don't know what we go through). We went ahead on a journey of faith, to Abuja not knowing what the next draw would be! On the 15th a Monday draw was held and BOOM, ITA landed!

Everything was ready!
2work reference letters in CIC format.
Bank reference letter
Gift deed from my mum
Deed of sale
2FD certificates.
PCC
Medical form
Passports
Affidavit of name change
Education documents!

Payment made and AOR received immediately!
The wait started,
First mail 28days,later an ADR, labelled schedule A, asking for more info on my background for a certain period! ( Didn't know BC had started)! I filled and submitted same day.
3days after MEP &BIL landed.
Another travel to Abuja for biometrics, hmmmm, not easy at all!

85 days after AOR Ghost update showed,
And after 88days came the golden mail!

May HIS name be praised!

My mail did state we should submit to any visa office, hope that is not a problem. I don't know if anybody has submitted via courier. I would like to seek advice and guidance as the info on their website is not very clear.
Thanks

Where did you do your Police Clearance Certificate(PCC)? Abuja or Lagos?

A general question to the house: CIC website only put Algbon as the venue for the PCC. Has anybody used that Police headquarters in Abuja for PCC and got PPR without any issues? Abuja location is closer to me.

HELP!!!!!!!!!!

1. Please, how can I delete an express entry profile which I have submitted

2. Also, I just created my profile and it states ''I am no longer eligible to apply for the express entry'' How do I resolve this??


3. My husband isn't having his cert evaluated or taking an IELTS test because our score is high without him having to do that. Hence under education, do I fill ''No post-secondary study'' and under English test, do I fill ''None''? this is to prevent them including it in his CRS score calculation

I am trying to figure out why d profile suddenly turned ineligible

Thank you guys for your anticipated response

I need your advice concerning proof of work experience.
I already have my letters from my previous places of work which make up over 3 years of experience. However, for the past almost 2 years, I haven't gotten any serious full-time job. I have been into many things: irregular hours on different activities which are mainly cash-on-hand transactions, and the present job descriptions are totally unrelated to the NOC for my previous jobs for which I have letters of experience.

Is it safe to put unemployed for the past 2 years in personal history? Or I should just cook up something(maybe, say business).

In a case like this where I am not going to submit any letter of experience for a current job(I have letters from previous jobs), is a LOE necessary to explain why?

Then he should write them and ask for everyone to submit in the US. That's the best course of action here.
Infact, they may kuku write and ask for extension so they can add baby at once (if baby will be here soon)
IRCC gave someone in part 2 a 90 days extension when she informed them that her edd was in a couple of weeks.
That way, there's no need submitting the passports and getting COPR only to cancel and resubmit when baby comes.
Thank you so much

I wrote BC IELTS first time on 13th of October, 2018. I had LWRS -7.5, 6,6, 7

I braced myself up and rewrote on 1st of December, 2018, LWRS - 8.5, 6.5, 7.5, 8

I applied for remark (writing) on 20th of December, 2018. I went to pick my EOR yesterday and it came back unchanged. Why is BC like this? I only needed 0.5 sad sad

Sorry to bore you guys. Congratulations to those who just got PPR.

2) the letter of indebtedness did not contain the following;
- account number
- the date the account was opened
- the current balance of the account
- the average balance for the past six month

Are the document as they are sufficient? What should I do?

Do you mean letter of reference?
Letter of INDEBTEDNESS means you are owing the bank. Pls check well

This is what zenith called it and i do not owe them. i changed it to non indebtedness in my email to them and they replied with 'indebtedness. maybe it is just a standard name!

So sorry bro. I can feel your pain. But you can make it again. I can feel it. There was a huge upgrade from your first to second attempt. Your third will be better. Practise more of writing. Also you may need to do more of exam-condition kind of practice. Do all LWRS at a go multiple times. It will increase your stamina and freshness during writing, so you can think properly and write better. Give writing samples to people who got above 7 to scrutinize and correct you. You seem okay, for me. You are half-way in Canada. With intensive practice you should be able to do your next IELTS in 6 weeks. Also, a positive and confident mindset helps. Bounce into the hall like a conqueror. It always works for me, especially after I know I have prepared very hard.
