I will advice you to come in with less Cash as possible, anything is possible . . . Also, if you come in with 4000$$ cash, they will go thru and count and i think that will be a waste of your time.

However, you are allowed to come in with Nothing more than 10,000$$ . . But does not mean you have to come in with that.

I will advice you only need what you would need on the way . . . Also, be sure that your visa will work in Canada, cos if all your money is on that card, and you are not able to access the funds, that could be rough.
Cheers

I will advice you do all your bookings from Nigeria . . . However,if you are a man that loves to see scenery, i will advice you take a Bus from Toronto to Vancouver and you would be shocked with all you would see, and you would know that the Lord is good.
But if you wanna fly, i will advice you to make all your connecting flight from Nigeria

Yo! Fhems, whaddya recommend for a Masters student with respect to accomodation? Do schools offer accomodation for graduate students or does one need to arrange his own before leaving? Failing that, can one stay in a hotel while sourcing for accomodation? And lastly, what can you say, based on experience - yours or others' - is the time interval between making an offer of interest on an apartment and moving in?
Arigato!
Oh, and how does one furnish his apartment? You know, where to go, what to buy. Bargains?

Checking and going thru your luggage and all that kinda stuff and for other people might be as long as 3 hours, and might be less . . One hour is not enough for you to go thru the customs and immigration.

All depends on your visa, but working is not that easy with your kinda SIN . . . But again, anything is possible.
Summer is holiday and you dont have to be in school.

Chief . . No need to be confused, i thought your question was because you are trying to work in summer instead of being in school.
OK, you are free to study in Summer, as well as work, na your money you go pay now . .
You are able to get work off campus, but such work are limited.
Hope this helps?

You need to give more information . . . Are you a refugee in America or a citizen, or a green card holder?

@ Inoro, I think what you mean is that you're travelling to Canada to study on a Nigerian passport and will be transiting through the US on your way to your final destination in the US. Is that the case? If so, have you checked the website of the US embassy in Nigeria for info? Also, have you had a look at both part 1 and 2 of the main travel to Canada thread in the travel section? They probably already cover this scenario.
Re: Nigerian Students In Canada: How Do You Survive? by Imoro: 10:58am On May 01, 2012
@ifegy - dts xactly wat I mean but the final destination is Canada...

I have chkd their website but frm wat I hear generally dy refuse visas a lot.
Just want to know if anyone has tried it n was successful.

Sorry, I meant to type that your final destination was indeed Canada.
If you haven't already bought a ticket, have you considered searching for flights that transit through Europe (or perhaps even Dubai, etc) and then go directly to Canada?
Otherwise your best bet might be to follow the US visa conditions to the letter.
Also have a look at the other Canada travel threads where people may have already shared their experiences re this issue.
