I applied in February but could only link my application on the 17th of May after several mails to CIC.


Thebushboy:
It seems there might just be 2 or 3 people here waiting for approval. Can we make this thread a bit active in order to help each other gain insight into possible processing time.

My Current Challenge..I have applied for the past 4 weeks now and I cannot link the paper application(OWP) to my account. Anyone with similar experience? How long should any OWP be before you can link it?

Yes. It was over 10m.

Evankc:



Congratulations cheesy am happy for you . I wish I can reapply but my sponsore don't have good amount in his account ...

Are you able to show over 10m in your sponsorship account ? I want to be sure if there is no hope for visa approve for people like me with poor fianacial status but good inflow and outflow but no good amount of raw cash in my sponsore account to show as proof..

Hello e-family, I just want to tell us that @Evankc post is so true.

I got my medical call on the 13th of May 2019.

Bio-metrics re-validation mail on the 23rd of May 2019.

Approval and passport returned on the 27th of June.

When I looked at my visa, it was actually stamped in Nairobi on the 23rd of May.

We really need to be truthful in our application.



Evankc:
This advice is for everyone..



Nigerians hope you are aware of what have be going on now even the news is everywhere that 70 percent of Nigerians are submitting Fake documents especially Account Statements . Because of that the Canada immigration as set up a body secretly to ensure there is proper security background check especially in Nigeria and which is the main reason most passport that where sumited for stamp as of April till now as been delay, taken more longer than before just to stamp..

This is what they do now. Once you applied for visa and your application will still go through the normal process and after they have finalize your applications including your documents and if your applications meet the requirement you will be granted approve and ask to sumit your passport for stamp .

Once you sumit your passport for stamp it will be process and the Nigeria immigration here will now do there own local 2nd background check which require more authentic verification on your sumited documents. Contacting your banks including sponsore bank brach head office to confirm if your statement of account that you sumited is legit and other documents as well even to the extend they do ask bank to contact the sponsoreship if truly he or she is the one that stand for you as a sponsore. With all this proper 2nd background check it take them time as they check every documents you sumited and this is done locally within Nigeria not Kenya or Canada so be ready..

After all the proper check up then if they found out you sumit a counterfeit bank statements or fake document. Then they will mail you directly from Lagos immigration officer that you submitted a counterfeit bank statements and give you 10 days or more to defend. So don't think you can scope them because they have done there re-search properly before they contact you to defend it : As for the penalty is 5 years banned or more with red flag .. also it will affect your visa profile and difficult to enter top countries that share the same data base with them like , US, Australia, UK and more of them ....



Please if you are applying through agent that they do grant people Canada visa approve and charge you high .. there is no shortcuts neither the agent is a brother of Canada president ooo. Don't allow the agent to spoil your visa reputation because they don't have anything to lose its you that will face the penalty oo and still lose your money you paid for account package or sponsorship package ...

Canada is not heaven that you must die there , so if you know you are not fianacially strong and you have no good sponsoreship and you tried and no way , you can still try other countries that relate to your purpose of visit... maybe as a step stone

@ Frankrobbn1, I withdrew my Express Entry Profile because in the GCMS note, the reason given by the VO for refusing the third application was that I have an active express entry profile and therefore the Intent to remain in Canada out-ways my leaving. That was the only reason on the GCMS note.



Frankrobbn1:


Nice profile you've got! Congratulations to you and your family. Though, I am curious to why you withdraw an active Express Entry profile for a Temporary resident Visa...

Long Approval Alert!

I just want to thank everyone that contributed to my approval. @wealth360, I will never forget you for all your advice and guidance.

I was refused Visitor's visa three(3) times and it all came as a rude shock because I believed I had a tight application.

Details:

1st Application (Visitors Visa) March 2018 - Refused ( only reason was Socio-economic ties to Nigeria)

2nd Application (Visitors Visa) May 2018 ( Used Canreach) - Refused ( Document not authentic) - Was shocked because all my documents were verifiable.

3rd Application ( Visitors Visa) June 2018 ( Did it myself ) - Refused ( Existing EE profile )

At this point, my spouse was upset. Went to his school immigration and they said we were asking for the wrong visa. I sincerely wanted to only visit because of my work here in Nigeria ( I work with an IOC).

Hello e-family, Please I need the advise of the GURU's in the house. I did paper application for SOWP on the 15th of Feb'19. I got a medical request on the 13th of May. Successfully sent the medical e-copy back to them that same day since I did up-front medical. Got Biometric validation mail on the 23rd of May. I was able to link my application online and saw that Medical was past on the 15th of May. I have not heard from them since then and my status still reads we are processing your application.
My worry now is..how long will it take to hear from them since they have my passport.
We had already planned a trip this summer to the UK for a family event on the 24th of July and we have valid visa.
Today makes the application 17weeks.
Would it be advisable to write or just wait and believe that we will get our passport back before that date.
Thanks for your usual response.

@Nellykuch...
Please don't make the mistake I made. I applied for visitor's visa with my two kids to visit my husband who is also a student in Canada and was refused three times. We got all GCM note and all three implied that since hubby was schooling..that the tendency to remain in Canada was stronger despite my job in IOC.
We were advised to apply for SOWP( for myself) and Study permit for my kids since they are of school age. I applied on the 15th of February 2019 and we were sent Medical request on the 13th of May 2019. Awaiting our passport since I did paper route.
Save yourself the stress and just apply for SOWP.


Nellykuch:
So I applied with my kids on the 12/04/19 to visit my husband who is currently schooling and we got denied yesterday. Now my husband wants to apply on ground Canada. Should I add for 5257 application outside Canada as he want to do it via paper route. Tnx

Good morning e-family, Please I need an urgent Advice. I applied for SOWP on the 15th of February via Paper submssion. I had tried linking it to no avail. Today I got a mail for Medical ( although we had done upfront medical). I called the hospital and they said I should just forward the e-medical information sheet that IOM gave to me.
I don't know where to forward it, since the Mail from Kenya is a Do-Not-Reply email.
Please your urgent advice would be appreciated.
