Hello,

The couple just had a new baby and want raise a CSE to include the baby in their application. The baby birth certificate bears the wife new name ( Husband Surname).

The couple application bears the wife maiden name.

Won't it make the application complicated, if wife name on baby birth certificate differs from her name on the application?


The couple is considering Legally changing the wife name and informing IRCC of wife new name .

Is it advisable to change wife name from maiden to husband surname post AOR and after Biometrics. Her international passport bears her maiden name.
If you haven't changed a name to another, you don't use it.

Update: My status was incomplete file(docs required ). I mailed Ices which they replied that no official documents have been sent from unilag. Today, my status changed to Application incomplete. The statement of result and transcripts were processed online on 2 separate days. Av sent another mail to Ices asking which documents are needed to complete the application. The only other option is to wait till April for convocation to collect the original certificate.

12 pages to read in just one day absent! The only time I have to read is on my way back from work.
So, yesterday... that's how I was reading the sister trend, @ aworldcitizen landing gist... So intriguing and captivating.. Then suddenly my phone left my hands. I screamed! Then it fell back somehow. I was in the back seat of a car, alone at the edge, with the glass half up; moving traffic o. On Oshodi bridge, the thief had aimed and slightly missed. With so many goosebumps, after I gave the guy waka.. I put my phone jejely in my bag, nairaland till further notice. Or between 11pm to whenever... sad

May God help us all.

Hello e-family,
Just for those of us still at the ECA stage... i applied for my transcript online since 3rd of December 2018 but etx-ng didn't do anything after i paid them. Had to get help from someone in school (uniben) to help fast track it. Just within a week, transcript is on it's way to canada now. I can imagine how happy I will be when i get ITA, PR if I'm this happy for my transcript.
My advise is to apply for your transcript manually.
Slowly but surely.
It will end in praise!!!

ETX-NG is full of shit. I remembered applying for my Uniben transcript in 2014 through them, it took over a year without them doing anything. I wasted so much money on phone calls and ended up with nothing from them. I eventually got a contact at Uniben that helped me secure my transcript and got it signed within 2 days. I only paid the person what I would have used as transport to Benin. I then realized belatedly that I made free payment to ETX-NG for no reason. Las Las, na me still do the whole work!

Lmao! Very interesting write-up. @Fizzile "only you one is a bad guys". Congratulations bro! May your journey be smooth...


fizzile:
Decision to migrate:
November 2017: At this point, it dawned on me that my stay in the UK was coming to an end. I possibly couldn't believe my eyes until i got a mail from Home Office reminding me that i had some months left on my Visa. I was like na so this people wan thank me for spending millions running a Masters programme? At this point, i pinched myself and i was like..."oboy wetin u wan go do for naija"? To start from the scratch? Mbanu !!! I thought of applying for scholarships in the UK and US but for the UK, i was like never!!!.. not after breaking my back all in d name of warehouse jobs...lolzz omor i huzzle shaaa oooo. Options like residency in Australia and Canada became my best bets but I rather chose the Canada route and came across this thread..the rest is history.

IELTS:
My first IELTS test was in the UK, and i prepared for two weeks. First IELTS was LRWS: 7.5, 7.5, 8.0, 8.5...I was so excited thinking that was gonna fetch me a good CRS not knowing i needed atleast an 8.0 in the listening band. I really appreciate the great guys here who encouraged me to retake the test. Got back to Nigeria in January 2018 and decided to retake IELTS, this time around in March. Had ample time to prepare and was very much relaxed in the hall. My second IELTS test was LRWS: 8.0, 7.0, 7.5, 7.5 which was enough for me. As for the materials i used, i basically used online platforms like ieltliz, ieltsbuddy.com and ielts-up.com.

ECA
This was straightforward as i evaluated just my Masters degree. WES was at my service and did the needful. Being a foreign degree, it was a smooth process for me, and i had my evaluation done within a month or thereabout.

MEDICALS

This was quite straightforward. Had mine at Prime Medicals in Port Harcourt. Unfortunately, they are no longer part of the process.

PROOF OF FUNDS(POF)
Used 100% gift deed from my dad. This was transferred to my savings account and transfer document for that was secured. Many have been of the opinion that notarizing the gift deed isn't necessary. Personally i notarized mine. For the gift deed, i simply followed the format put up by wakanowdotcom. His post was really helpful. Other documents i submitted are:
>6-month bank statement showing inflow of cash and transfer of POF.
>Also got a printout of currency converter (oanda and xe.com) as at day of submission,
>LOE explaining source of funds and bulk sum and,
> bank reference letter.
NO PAYSLIPS WAS INCLUDED. I contemplated including one, but when i got necessary advice from the likes of Tojued and Newmum0615, i had to submit my application without including payslips. Happytbaby, glitteringstar, ugoiyke79e, thanks for all your mails. I so disturbed these guys and trust me, they were of great help.

EMPLOYMENT:
This was the point i needed my God to step into the matter...lolzzzz.. I actually worked in a firm where i was paid in cash, and all i did was to get a reference letter from my boss in CIC format. I also included an LOE stating the reason i was paid in cash. It was indicated on the letter that i was paid in cash. As for online presence, the firm had no online presence like a website, and i had to including a screenshot of the firm's registration page on the CAC's website. Lastly, i included my boss's complimentary card just incase they decide to reach him directly. In all, i committed everything to God. One prayer i kept praying was, God please blind them from all my inadequacies and trust me this prayer worked like magic..hahahahha.

PCC:
I applied for Nigeria and UK PCC. Mr Moshood was of great help when i applied for the Nigeria PCC. Though he made some errors on my PCC, but Lucia was very helpful as she helped me apply for another and scanned it to me.

ADRs:
I recieved my first ADR on Sept 20th and it was to fill Schedule A form, of which i did immediately and submitted.
Second ADR came in October, which was to make payment for RPRF. Made this payment immediately.
Third ADR came in and lo and behold, i thought it was PPR not knowing i had another form to fill up. This time around, it had to do with filling the IMM5406 form (additional family information). As usual, i responded swiftly.

GCMS NOTES:
Ordered first set of gcms notes on the 24th of November, 2018, and for over 60days it wasn't delivered. Mailed them severally and kept getting all sort of excuses. Atlast, gcmsbuddy had to re-order and it arrived on the 9th of Feb, 2019. Everything look cool. The wait continued

In all these, it's been a long wait...some will say long overdue but i must say it is worth the wait. At some point i almost lost it 'cos i was beginning to get fed up with responses from CIC agents. Disturbing CIC agents became a hobby to me, as i kept calling and calling...dats how i spoke to one agent thrice on different occassions..lolz...but shun, this lady's voice is something else...often felt at home each time i got connected to her. Will miss her though...hope we get to meet in Cannyland. Psychologically, this process drained me..imagine friends always wanting to know wats going on in this life of dis dude who just got back from UK...enemies at the gate i must say...but God pass them. I no wan mention all dos "cats" (babes) wey don chop my UK money run....lolzzz.. dey go soon come back to chop Canny money...Chop keee una there...hahahahaha...

Emotionally, it was hard for me...thinking about the whole process and thinking about a sick dad who keeps asking..."my son, when are they gonna send the mail?...are you sure this thing will work out?...it became a regular thing that each time i watched his face and have the thoughts of FSW Express Entry, i simply got weak. One thing is for sure, he gave me a big smile early this morning when i got the golden mail..been a while i saw him smile though. One thing is for sure, i am happy he is strong to see this become a reality....no worry, na canny doctors go treat u las las. Maybe all those great doctors on this thread.

I must say a huge thank you to everyone who chipped in one info or the other, you guys were of great help. Smslive, indeed you are a great oracle. Fresty, we global now !!!! Cheee !!! thanks for being a buddy indeed...God bless you real good.

To my family...u know yourselves, AOR August Whatsapp group and August ITA whatsapp group, you guys rock.. Love y'all.. Mo, u aiit? init?

To the newbies or those in the process, stay strong, stay focused, asked questions, i repeat ask questions.. read...read...read too...this journey is one that requires even the smallest person beside u.. Throw away pride and ego, and be humble enough to seek information. It is key. ABOVE ALL, BE CLOSE TO YOUR GOD...IT MIGHT SOUND FUNNY, BUT TRUST ME NOT EVERYONE WHO SEES YOU GOING TRU DIS PROCESS WISH U WELL...HENCE, BE CLOSE TO YOUR GOD.

TIMELINE:

One funny thing that happened prior to when i got the ghost update yesterday morning was that, i ordered for second GCMS notes in the morning, and after some minutes i got the ghost update, trust igbo guy like me naa.. i hurriedly mailed gcmsbuddy to cancel my order and initiate a refund. Indeed God was ahead of me.

Awestruck I fall to my knees as I humbly proclaim, You are amazing, God!

Ladies and gentlemen and bob_riskys, its PPR!

My application does not have any special twist or turns that makes it spectacular.

The decision to travel was in March 2018.

IELTS (LRSW 9 8.5 7 7) was attempted once. I remember not getting above 35/40 in all the listening practices while preparing for the exam. Nervousness got the better of me during speaking. It was just God's grace.

ECA (Unilag Masters) using WES took 5 months altogether, partly because I was waiting for my certificate to be ready for collection.

POF was 80% gift deed from Iya Kunle. Deed was notorised at Ikeja (Court)

MEP was a huge relief; I was expecting an ADR on that.

Raised an enquiry asking for my VO on Dec 7, 2018. Response came 5 days later that it was CPC, Ottawa.

Tracking September AOR NGR single applicants was the assignment I gave myself to predict when I would likely get PPR. GCMS notes did not raise any red flag, and all was completed except security.

This morning, when I saw an update notification on my profile without any apparent update, I was happy I got a Ghost Update. I opened my Outlook and a Ready for Visa mail dropped. I didn't know when my eyes started waterworks while singing Hillsong's So Will I

So my timeline...

As far as am concerned, there is no issue with WES, it all depends on individual uni, UI gave me zero wahala, ECA was done in 6weeks (plus transcript sending to WES), that of my spouse was just 4weeks (private school). aside the expense of sending O'level to WES, for me they are fast, Naija Universities are just the problem people face when it comes to verification.


We're saying the same thing. Otherwise what's the point of using WES when you graduated from LAUTECH that doesnt know what email is?

Gradually increasing is ok.

The question is how do you define "gradually increasing". Someone in part 1 of this thread said increase should not be more than N250,000 monthly. I don't know how that figure came to be.

You have to define what you are comfortable with and if the increase in balance is high, prepare a good explanation.

Hey guys..please want to clarify about POF.

My pof has not been in my account for 6 months, it has been gradually increasing over the past 6 months..is this a problem?

I just read somwhere that the total money must have been in the account for 6 months consistently.

Please someone should help clarify.

Hello e-family,
Just for those of us still at the ECA stage... i applied for my transcript online since 3rd of December 2018 but etx-ng didn't do anything after i paid them. Had to get help from someone in school (uniben) to help fast track it. Just within a week, transcript is on it's way to canada now. I can imagine how happy I will be when i get ITA, PR if I'm this happy for my transcript.
My advise is to apply for your transcript manually.
Slowly but surely.
It will end in praise!!!

Etx is one chance. Even if they manage to get your transcript, you'll still be on your own for verification.
Folks should only use etx if it's compulsory with their schools.
