Yes the Lord has done smth great for me. I applied for spousal open work permit and by God's grace today I have my trv. I promised myself that I will share my testimony in dis room n I appreciate God for making it possible. This will also encourage anyone applying for SOWP.

Application submitted online: 6th of Sept
Biometrics done: 8th of Sept
Medical mail : 30th of Sept
Medical done : 1st of October at consultant practice
Medical passed mail: 14th of October
Passport request mail: 15th of October
Submitted 16th
Dispatch mail: 21st of October( in d morning, n dis got me so scared because I didn't get an approval mail)
Approval mail 21st of October( but came later in the evening).

I'm so thankful to God for this opportunity n helping me to be part of this thread. I joined this thread from page 1 of part 8, though I know I'm not going to Canada thru study but just got addicted. I appreciate everyone who has been immensely helpful to everyone on this thread and also contributed to my success story in one way or d other. God bless you all with yur TRV's. Amen.

Ok.....so I started following this trend recently. I applied for SOWP and I got my TRV. I know most people here are applying for study permit, but just to encourage those that have spouses that would like to apply in the future.
Application.......Aug 12th
Biometrics.........Aug 14th
Medical Request mail.........September 21st
Medical done...........September 22nd
Medical passed.........September 25th
Passport Request.........October 7th
Approval mail.....October 13th

Its not by my power, its all my God's grace.. To all TRV hopefuls, keep holding on to God and let him be the center of it all. Your TRVs will be approved.

Congratulations sis. God bless

Yes it was at IOM Ikeja. They sent me a mail the 2nd working day that my cic account has been updated...and when I checked, they said I passed my medicals.

Oh thank you now I have an idea. God bless

Sorry I applied through paper route, so I really can't answer the first question. However it takes consultant practice about 1 week to send your result to CIC, while I think it takes 24 to 48hrs to update your medical result in ur acct.
My Candid advice, nothing you do now can influence CIC's decision (except prayers). From experience this is about the toughest phase, u'll refresh ur account almost every hour and be forced to think and think. ....pls just get busy, and think less about the application...... If u track from now till God knows when, it won't make it faster. So pls hope for the best while you occupy yourself with something productive.
I wish you Good luck

Oh I'm so grateful for this response. Hopefully by the end of this week it should be updated. I will keep my fingers crossed. Thanks n God bless

Hello house. Can I pay the visa & biometric fee at VAC office in cash or the only option is to make the payment online via CIC website?
I wanna be sure.
Thanks in anticipation. smiley


From my understanding, if you are applying online then you should pay online but if it's through paper route then you would have to pay at vfs in cash. I hope this helps. Cheers

Online applicants are not required to pay any additional charges, but ensure you have your international passport (hard copy) + 2 photocopies and your biometrics instruction letter when you show up @ VFS for your biometrics.

Thank you so much. God bless.

Good morning house. Yes finally I got a dispatch message last week Thursday after I sent them a mail upper Wednesday (thanks to @dudet who gave me a better email address) about my application. So I picked it up yesterday at vfs n was delayed and only purpose of visit was ticked, I'm sure it's because d reason for my application has passed. I still thank God I didn't have to go to the embassy to get my documents. And I pray for all trv hopefuls dat God will grant every one their heart desires. Amen.

[quote author=Supermum post=37150285]Hello my beautiful people.

Here goes my testimony - this is to further encourage anyone applying for a SOWP

Applied Paper route with hubby - July 21st
Medical mail for me- August 3rd
Medical mail for hubby- August 11th
Approval mail for me- August 12th
Approval mail for hubby- August 20th

Baby didn't need to apply (we only submitted a copy of her U.S. Passport and BC)
So we both got approved a month after application. Thanks to Minnietope, Team12 and every other person on this thread who has contributed invaluable information.



Congratulations supermum. Pls I want to ask, did you n yur hubby applied for SOWP together or was d application for visiting? Cos if it was for SOWP , I thot someone should at least have a valid study visa or work permit. Thank you

[quote author=dudet post=36837441]Does anyone else have any updates this week? I wrote to them again last week Wednesday and got a response on Thursday saying they were reviewing applications received on the 9th of June 2015.

Hi, I also wrote them last Wednesday n got d usual automated response. I didn't even get any response like yours. If I had, I would kow they received n read my mail n with that I can inform them when I submitted but since there was no direct mail, then I want to believe they didn't receive mine not to talk of reading it. Pls can you send me d email address you sent your mail to so I can send them another one today. Thanks so much.

good day , bimbo when did u apply ? have u tracked or called vfs to know the status of your application, I understand how frustrating it is to wait for something when u don't even know your stand.

It's so frustrating. It's over 3 months. I don't even know the kind of prayers I'm to pray again. Applied 5th of May. I sent a mail to cic case specific n till date nothing. I don't know what is happening.
