Hello everyone,
How soon does eligibility start after submission using the new portal?

It varies from person to person.

We submitted Feb 27 and eligibility “started”April 20 and then we got BVL and ppr the very next day
Travel / Re: Canada Visit/tourist Visa Discussion. by Fyorgyn: 6:44am On May 01
True… that’s why I put “May not need”. I understand that ours was not the norm and each person’s situation is different.

Thanks for all you do

ami213:
@fyorgyn,

That is not the norm! Your sister was just lucky, between she has 15 years working experience and she is leaving behind her husband and kids (she has strong family ties in Nigeria)

Applications are treated differently depending on the Visa Officer handling it.

Hiya

If your PR sibling will sponsor the trip you may not need to show bank statement. I’m a PR and my sister recently applied to come visit us. I put the details in an earlier post.

We didn’t include her bank statements at all… almost zero travel history (we didn’t mention she’d been to the uk cos it was more than 5years ago)

bcolat21:
Congrats Ameeria, pls what documents did u submit and what is the minimum amount to show as proof of funds.

I am applying to visit my PR sibling and I don't have travel history too,

Thank you in anticipation of a response from you

Congratulations! Your sister’s application is indeed one of a kind.

Abuja VFS takes 1-5 working days.



Hehe.. very mysterious. I was really worried about not putting more things in the application. I’m glad it worked out in the end

Thanks so much.

PPR!

I am a PR and applied for my sister to come visit.

Application submitted: February 26
Biometrics done: March 3
Biometrics updated on portal: March 23
Eligibility and Background check: April 21
BVL and PPR: April 22

So grateful for this thread, I’d never have known about the new portal! Again, nairaland has been a great great resource for me.

My sister has travel history to UK but it was over 5 years ago so we didn’t include it at all- so to all intent and purposes, she’s a new traveller! She also recently renewed her passport and got it just before applying- so basically “no travel history”

We indicated that we would fully sponsor her trip so she put $0 and didn’t include any bank statements of her own.


Documents submitted
I wrote an invitation letter and with the letter, I attached
my employment letter,
3 months Paystubs
3 months bank statement (my closing balance was less than $3k),
my birth certificate and hers (showing our parents names),
my marriage certificate and hers (our father signed both)
A few pictures (just as proof of relationship)
PR cards of myself and family

I had mentioned that my husband and I were sponsoring the trip but I didn’t include any of his financial documents (it was a risk I took jare)

She attached the following documents
Her employment letter (she’s gainfully employed and has been working at the same job for 16 years!)
A letter from her husband giving his consent and saying he will take care of their children whilst she’s visiting me
Her awards as most outstanding staff for 2021

No bank statements, leave letter, landed properties etc etc.

I am so glad.

Please o how long does it take for passport to be stamped and returned when submitting at Abuja VFS- we wan buy ticket

Long time here o, like that bro/sis. Been on this thread since when part 2 was confused as part 1 lol. Too many names i can't recognise.

Anyway AOR May 3rd 2019, still awaiting PPR, Accra VO of course.

Can we have a spot on page 1 for PPRs like other parts please?

Wow! I cannot even imagine how you feel... the wait has been so long but it will end in praise.

Yes... that page1 list of PPR stories was so helpful... It does require a bit of selfless service to do it but it is worth it... if one of the people here can do it, just like it was done on the previous parts, it will be super helpful for those on the journey.

Hi everyone! I recently just got this information and was wondering if anyone could help verify it. I was told that the location for your quarantine arrangement has to be at your point of entry; meaning, let’s assume your final destination is Saskatchewan, and your point of entry is Toronto, you wouldn’t be allowed to board a domestic flight from Toronto to Saskatchewan without having first quarantined for 14 days AT TORONTO (even if you’ve made prior quarantine arrangement already at Saskatchewan). Please is this correct?

I was in Canada in November- POE was Montreal spent the night in a hotel and flew to Calgary the next morning.

Unless things have changed considerably between then and now- you can board a domestic flight without any hassle.

Hope this helps

Hyy. Actually they used to be several of such groups until the PEBC issued out a strict warning against participating in such groups.

Part of the reason why the syllabus was changed, resulting in the low pass rate being witnessed today.

Some of the Facebook grps are active though, but are now a shadow of themselves.

Thanks YoungRx



The strict warning is to those guys who collect thousands of CAD claiming they are "PEBC approved" and should not apply to a Nairaland study group to help each other and share ideas.

This is the disclaimer
"The Pharmacy Examining Board of Canada does not endorse any preparatory course of any kind whatsoever, and any pretence by an individual or group in making such a claim is liable to legal prosecution"




There are many paid tutorial classes that are still thriving and there is nothing wrong with them. PEBC is only saying "Don't claim we gave you approval"

The 47% I posted earlier is the average rate from 2015 to 2018. So no be today.

Apologies if I am derailing this thread o but this is a subset of "Living in Canada".

Canadian Pharmacists biko help us as we start this thread. I will be posting the link to the thread once I start it. Thanks

Pharmacists in the house...

Please is there any thread on PEBC Exams here on Nairaland? I did check but did not find much here. There is just so much to read and with a pass rate of 47% (more than half of those who write the exams fail it) it will be great to have a thread where we (Nigerians) could discuss study tips, resources and ideas.

I am happy to start one but need to be sure there isn't one already that I may have missed in my search.

Hello my great people, pls I need your opinion or any experienced ones..... I'm travelling next month for my second missionary journey and I will be going with my 20months old toddler. Im trying to book our flight on travelstar with delta airline but I'm not allowed to buy him a seat. So here is the question; will delta airline allow me lap him with me at 35weeks gone? And coming back to naija with 2 kids on my lap wont be funny.... pls any suggestions. Thank you.

You are NOT required to buy a seat for your 20Months old BUT you CAN buy a seatfor him if you wish to...He will HAVE to sit in his car seat. Please contact delta airline directly.

I always advise that, especially for missionary journeys, mamas buy from the airline directly. It saves you from a lot of stress especially when trying to add your new born to the ticket.

Education / Re: Nigerians Who Studied Abroad, Do You Have Any Regrets? by Fyorgyn: 9:31am On Nov 11, 2019
DanXplore:
I did masters in the UK and no regrets so far. I doubt there will ever be.

As long as you have genuine hunger for knowledge and money is not your primary motivation, you should have no regrets.

I could not agree more!

@OP I do think it depends on one's outlook and motivation for schooling abroad.

Are you seeking knowledge (academic), exposure to a different and diverse environment, or for the opportunity to migrate I.e. leave Nigeria permanently?

I had my first degree in Nigeria and, after working for a few years, went for a Master's degree in the UK in 2011. I must say that I absolutely have no regrets whatsoever.

It was my first experience outside Nigeria. I enjoyed the academic experience and did learn as much outside as inside the classroom. We were 20 in my class from 10 different countries and I was exposed to diverse cultures and people. I am grateful for the exposure I got and for the life long friendships I made.

I came back to Nigeria immediately after my MSc as I had no intention to migrate at the time. I did go to "Oxbridge" on a full scholarship, which is a different amazing experience on its own, but what has opened numerous doors for me within and outside Nigeria are the networks built whilst I studied in the UK.

I certainly have no regrets whatsoever

Sir,

Sorry I eavesdropped, I heard you say you landed earlier this year. Please, did you stay till you got your card? If not, how did you return to Canada? Did you get a PRTD did someone help you bring it to Nigeria or did you use a courier service?

I can't stay till PR comes and I need to know my options.

Warm Regards.

Hello etrange,

We soft-landed and did not wait for our PR cards. It went to our friend's address, they waited till they found someone coming to Nigeria and sent it through him.

Someone I know got hers couriered down to Nigeria without any issues.

I personally do not know anyone who has applied for a PRTD but when I was in your shoes (wondering about my options), I did check here on NL and saw that one or two NLers had successfully applied for it

I always tell my people the Canadian society is negro proof. Whatever shady/ illegal nonsense you try in naija, don't try in Canada. People who aren't qualified for express entry are using the school route to try to enter canada. The Canadian government isn't stupid.

True!

It really is a serious matter.

Between January and May 2019, 81% of study permit applications from Nigeria were refused! see here. That is, 8 out of 10 applications rejected!

MamaOO:
Good Morning. I have a question and I’d be really glad if someone could help me. I already asked on the UK visa thread but no response and I figured moms on this thread might have an idea.
My family and I have an upcoming trip and we’re gonna be transiting through London Heathrow on long layovers so we decided to explore London for a while before our next flight. Husband and kids are US citizens, I’m a GC holder.

My question is:
1. I decided to apply for a 6 month visa even though I read on the UK.gov website that I might be eligible for Visitor in Transit visa or some other kinds of waiver as a US GC holder. Both legs of our trips are about a month apart so I decided to apply for a visa to stall unforeseen situations. Is that the way to go?

2. While filling out my application online, I got to a point where I was asked to fill in the travel documents for my dependents and family who will be accompanying me. I filled my husband’s passport details but my boys’ passports hasn’t come in the mail yet. Do I need to include them in my application even if they’re not gonna be needing visas? I ask because it can take up to 4 weeks to get their passport back and I need about 3 weeks to get my visa (to be on the safe side.). Our trip is near and it takes the UK Visa office in LA about 3 weeks to process visas

Please help! I apologize for the long story. Just trying to be as concise as possible

Hello MamaOO,

If your flight from the UK leaves on the day you arrive or before midnight on the day after you arrive, i.e. within 24 hours AND you have a valid US visa, or in your case, a green card,are travelling to or from the US, you can very well transit without a visa.

When I went to have my baby in 2016, I transited through London, and, although I had a valid UK Visa, I did ask the CBP officer if he would have let me through if I didn't have a visa and he replied in the affirmative. He did say that as long as I had a valid ticket going to the US, I could go into London. He however added that it is at the discretion of the officer but more often than not, they will let you through.

A few mamas have shared their experience here about being allowed into London (they aren't GC holders like you, and do not live in the US) so I don't think you will have a problem.

On the milk matter.


I did take milk for my toddler AND declared it. The CBP officer actually said that although milk is prohibited, they understand that children can take time to adjust so they (CBP officers) can (at their discretion) sometimes allow some quantity of milk especially for young children.
