I have been a silent reader for 3 weeks now , although I have submitted my application since 8th February 2021. I have learnt so many things here , I read about you putting No if you have been denied visa before , my agent never asked me about that so I asked him after reading it here . He told me he filled No , I have read it can lead to a 5 year ban . He said he filled a web form already and filled one of the forms to correct it . I am sorry about my long write up please gurus in the house , HELP ME PLEASEEEEE what can I do

PPR JUST DROPPED!

My application journey is quite interesting, and I promised to share here if I get a PPR. So firstly, I applied using an agent. As a matter of fact, I got admission using one agent, and got the visa using another agent. My application made me come to the conclusion that using an agent is truly not worth it. Imagine that I paid 300k just to get a PGD admission in University of Winnipeg. Bygone, anyways - lucky agent. After my admission, I switched to another agent because my Dad, who previously didn’t show interest, decided to be involved. The second agent came through my dad (he paid the agent 250k or so) - he was recommended by my uncle. I gave him the LOA I paid 300k for, and he requested me to write my LOE. I was able to write a good LOE with the help of Google, and of course, Nairaland. I am sure you are wondering what exactly this agent was paid to do, if both LOA and LOE came from me. Me sef dey wonder lol.

APPLIED - DECEMBER 7
BIOMETRICS - DECEMBER 8

Na where wahala start be this. The whole journey was mentally exhausting. This agent fit make person crase with obvious lies and pretense. Want to make this as short as possible, so let me just drop one example. The agent was supposed to have applied long before the time he did. So we pressured him till he lied and made a fake medical request letter. In his own letter, the medical has to be done in 90 days, instead of the usual 30 days. Note that biometrics had not been done then oh. He also gave us fake biometrics appointment letter one time, and when the day came, he said IRCC has technical issues, and he would have to book another date. Basically, my whole journey with this agent was filled with altercations and mistrust. It got to a point, all we wanted was access to the portal, but this agent was giving stories like he didn’t know the password offhand, and he would find it. Moving on...

ORDERED GCMS - MARCH 27

Fast forward to April ending, I hadn’t heard anything from this agent. Was checking this thread regularly and seeing even January applicants receive PPR. I decided to message this agent to remind him. This was when the agent logged into my portal and saw that I got medical request 8 days before.

MEDICAL REQUEST - APRIL 14

Finally, he was confident about the application, and dropped the login details even without asking him.

MEDICALS DATE - APRIL 27

I was eager to get the PPR, and was checking my portal like every hour after I did the medicals. On the morning of April 29, I opened my portal, GUESS WHAT I SAW? Booooom! Procedural Fairness Letter - I wanted to faint even before opening the PFL.

PROCEDURAL FAIRNESS - April 29

I opened the PFL, and what I saw was that the VO has concerns that my Dad’s statement of account is not genuine. I am to prove that it is genuine in 15 days, or I get 5 years ban. I was destabilized and scared to the bone. A lot ran through my mind in milliseconds.“ Could it be that this guy used a fake SOA, instead of the one we gave him?” “Could it be that he altered some transactions?” Picked up the phone to call this agent, and for like 2 hours, his number was switched off. I started feeling like he already saw the PFL, and was on the run.

Finally, we reached him, and he assured us that he used the SOA we gave him. He told us to go to the bank for MBS, and give IRCC a SOA that shows transactions till the date of the PFL. We did that immediately, but how could I trust someone who once gave us fake medical request and biometrics appointment letter?

I became restless since that minute I saw the PFL, and even after submitting MBS, I couldn’t still sleep or do anything. I was literally checking my portal uncountable times in a day.

MEDICAL PASSED - MAY 1

This should have been an update that would have made me rest assured of finally leaving this Nigeria, but I remained unhappy and restless because of the PFL.

GCMS NOTE RECEIVED - MAY 3

Finally, GCMS note came in yesterday night before I slept. Saw that everything has been passed. I also saw that instructions have been given that I get a study permit till 2023. Lastly, it was in the GCMS note that IRCC had messaged my Dad’s bank to confirm if the SOA is genuine, and they got response from the bank that it is genuine. This happened since the beginning of April.

THEN WHY ON EARTH DID IRCC GIVE ME PFL ON APRIL 29 Shaey IRCC dey whyne me ni

The more I thought about the whole issue, the more it becomes obscure. I search Google tire to see if anybody don face the same issue before, but I no see anything.

To God be the glory sha, I opened my portal 12pm today, and I saw ORIGINAL PASSPORT REQUEST! Booomshakalaka!!!!

Till now, I can’t explain what happened concerning that PFL thing, but I just thank God. I no even wan understand again sef lol. Thanks to everyone doing a good job here. You all will be forever appreciated.

Good day Nairalanders...

Congratulations to everyone who have gotten PPR this week.

Please I submitted my application on April 20,2021 and did biometrics on April 23, 2021. I observed on my profile that I have been given a biometrics identity number and also d date I did the biometrics was also captured. But on the part of the biometrics it is still showing I have message, instead of it to indicate biometrics updated. Has anybody encountered such pls? I have attached a screenshot

Don't worry, it would eventually be updated to "Biometrics Completed". When you go for biometrics, your fingerprints and iris recognition is captured. The agency also uses this data for the background check they carry out on applicants. It would eventually be updated later.

It would end in praise.
Re: Canadian Student Visa Thread Part 18 by Onweke: 2:39am On May 05
Congrats NwanyiOkpa. God is faithful. I know how it started and finally ended in praise. I am so happy for you. I will testify as you did soonest.

NwanyiOkpa:
It has finally ended in praise for me. God bless Frankrobbn, Justmellow, and the many others that have been giving me hope and answering all my plenty of questions. Note that I used an agent or my application because i was too busy with work to continually study the tips on this thread and apply them. I am a second-time applicant.

Timeline:
January 20th: Medical done
January 27th: Application submitted with all NSE requirements- Sponsor's 1-year Mybankstatement of about 11million, IELTS result with 7.5 band, and Medical result.
February 20th
February 26th: Second ghost update
March 4th: Third ghost update
March 9th: Fourth ghost update
May 4th: PPR and correspondence letter


Reason for the first refusal: They said that my finance wasn't sufficient even after i submitted an account statement of 12million and paid my first-semester tuition.

How i tackled the refusal: I paid the full tuition for the first year, provided the sponsor's account statement of 11million and i also made a notarised affidavit of sponsorship signed by my sponsor. I did not use a notarised affidavit of sponsorship in my first application but i used an affidavit from the high court. A friend advised me to use a notary lawyer for my affidavit and so far, everyone that i know that used a notary lawyer was approved. Notarised documents are recognized worldwide.


Documents submitted:
All IMM forms
Tuition payment receipt CAD$21,000
notarised affidavit of sponsorship
notarised affidavit of good behavior
police report
IELTS result
medical slip
letter of explanation
passport photograph
data page of passport
sponsor's birth certificate (sponsor is my brother)
CAC document for my business
Employment letter
Recommendation letter

NOTE: I used an agent for my application. There are a few agents that knows what they are doing. My agent did not hold back my login details like other complained about.

I got admitted into about 7 schools in the USA also but I decided to go to Canada for reasons best known to me.

God wey do am for me go do am for una.

I am so excited. As i dey type sef, my fingers dey shake. Immediately i logged in and saw that my application has been updated i was like; "these people with their ghost updates again" before i clicked on the application and saw my correspondence letter and PPR. I immediately ran and woke my dad from sleep to break the good news to him. He has always been supportive.

I aw filling the 3 rd imm form for family information. For siblings whose both certificates is not available, should I still include their details, or should I only work with the available ones.

Please gurus and those who have experienced this should help out.


Sorry to ask how many siblings do you have ?. If you must include them pls make sure you include all the supporting documents ( birth certificates/affidavits ) for any family member mentioned in your IMM form.
