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

Hiya there’s a thread for student visa already… please let’s keep this space for visit visas…
|Travel / Re: Canada Visit/tourist Visa Discussion. by Fyorgyn: 10:41pm On Apr 30|
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)
|Travel / Re: Canada Visit/tourist Visa Discussion. by Fyorgyn: 9:45pm On Apr 23|
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.
|Travel / Re: Canada Visit/tourist Visa Discussion. by Fyorgyn: 9:00am On Apr 22|
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.
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

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.
All the best everyone

Hehe... I am a Pharmacist
One of the best decisions of my life was doing Express Entry in 2018! When CRS scores were in the 430s and 440s... I won't have been able to get in with the prohibitively high scores now...
I wish everyone on this journey the very best. It is definitely worth it.

No, you do not need yellow card to travel to Canada.

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

Please does anyone have a contact at nursing and midwifery council in Abuja? I'd really appreciate if I can get through to someone who works there

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
|Travel / Re: Living In Canada/Life As A Canadian Immigrant Part 2 by Fyorgyn: 2:20pm On Jan 05, 2020|
I guess we should start one then!
|Travel / Re: Living In Canada/Life As A Canadian Immigrant Part 2 by Fyorgyn: 9:09am On Jan 05, 2020|
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.

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|
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

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

You apologize here and still use swear words!
You really do need to mind your language young man (or woman). It is not acceptable here.
By the way, many of us here do not mind reading "epistles" and we do prefer them to short posts filled with bad spellings, grammar and profanities
|Travel / Re: Living In Canada/Life As A Canadian Immigrant Part 2 by Fyorgyn: 11:21pm On Oct 08, 2019|
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!
The hustle to leave Nigeria is real!
Unfortunately, genuine students are also affected

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.
