When reapplying using GCK, am I to enter the UCI from the former application or a new UCI will be generated for me.

Think of your UCI - unique Client Identifier as your id number with IRCC. It is unique to only you. grin Typically each applicant should have only one and this should be used in every application you send to IRCC. Ultimately, your UCI becomes your Permanent Resident card ID number. Hope this helps.

Okay. I am a bit confused because i read somewhere that it may be a 10 year multiple entry visa but with no longer than 6 months of stay per time of visit

mention wat u can afford over there that someone earning 500k cannot afford here

What type of school do you think someone earning 500k can send his kids to?? Definitely not the likes I’d want my kids to attend. And what type of environment would that person live in Alagbole?? Or magboro? And what’s the security like in those areas? electricity? Now with that said, here in Canada, education is free!!!!! Meaning I do not have to overly worry about the standard of school (and all the cost associated with that) I send my kids. Also, security is relatively stable, there is 247 electricity which I would have to pay through my nose to have in naija. Still on the 500k?

The problem with the majority of Nigerians is them thinking it’s all about money. Kindly google what ‘standard of living’ means. With 1million naira, I can’t afford the standard of living I’m currently getting in Canada ! In nigeria I have to consider security, education, job security, savings becos safety nets aren’t existent.

if u are earning 500k n cant give urself some degree of a quality life then something is wrong with u financially

N500k is not a lot of money. Definitely not enough for the type of lifestyle I grew up in and was definitely not going to be enough to care for my family. There are some lows some of us will never settle for without a fight! My fight was to leave my comfort zone and seek a better life! Now I get to choose the life I’ve always dreamt of in Canada ��.

Not everyone will leave naija sha. It worked out for me and mines wink grin

This is d difference, with your dad's 500k he can conveniently take care of more bills than you can with ur 15k in the US or Canada

it’s not only about bills or money. What quality of life can you get in today’s Nigeria with 500k? With $15k monthly abroad, you can do a lot !
Travel / Re: Is Traveling Abroad Worth It? by KlausMike(m): 2:41am On Nov 06, 2022
To be honest, i wonder why people still ask if its worth it..lol

For me, it was more than worth it. I came to Canada in 2018 as a student, leaving behind my wife and son. Before leaving naija, i worked as a consultant earning about 450k per month. Back then, my future seemed bleak and the fear of not being able to provide for my family daunted me since 2016 until i made the move.

Today - I work in IT. I am waayyyyyyyyyy better in my state of mind, finances, future outlook etc. My family and I are permanent residents of Canada and confident in our future.

My little cent, if you've got the opportunity to leave Nigeria, TAKE IT AND RUN!!! grin Any enjoyment you think you've got in nigeria is nothing compared to what is possible abroad. Im guessing this also depends on the country though grin But naija nor be am!

Let's get something straight. It's not any God's grace. You were an exception, which is okay. There are many more people possibly in other countries who were also exceptions like this. It's a good thing, an excellent thing, but don't let it get into your head. It's not any God's grace where you were specifically targeted. Those who are in for longer are just like you and it doesn't make them any worse off or any lacking of God's grace.

Hello Naira landers,

I greet you.

I have done ECA since March 2021 and I'm yet to receive a copy from WES. Although I confirmed the evaluation is completed on my WES account, I'm worried because I thought people submit a copy of it with documents after ITA.

Please advise.

There should be an electronic copy of your assessment in your Wes profile attached once your evaluation is complete. The electronic copy is what is required when submitting your application.

Thank you for your feedback. Pls, did you compile all your family's documents in an envelope and made payment for one way courier? Or each applicant's documents in a different envelope and made payment for one way courier individually?

I sent the passports in one envelope and paid for 1 way courier.

Good afternoon everyone. I am a first timer here. We recently got our ppr, we are a family of 3. We had our biometrics at Lagos VFS and intend sending our docs to Abuja VFS because we heard it's faster than Lagos. Pls, I want to confirm if the package transmission fee is to be paid for each of us or just one payment to cover us all. Thank you

Hello everyone, trust you are fine. I have an issue and I need help on what to do. I applied for canadian FSW permanent residency more than a year ago from my home country and till now my application is still in progress. However, recently, I have moved to another country for studies on a temporary visa for 17 months. Is it necessary to inform IRCC about my new location? All my contact details such as email, phone and mailing address(in my home country) are still valid and functioning even as I am in a different location. I have some of my family members still liviing in my mailing address in my home country. Thanks for your reply.

Since you’ll be in the new country for a while, you should raise a webform to inform IRCC about your change in address.

Thanks a lot for this.

The confusing part is the collection of passport (No 2 above). One-way delivery is to just drop off the passports at Lagos vfs right? So, at what point do we pay for the passports delivery back to me via courier?

Is there like an upfront payment for courier delivery back to the sender before sending the passport to them OR Lagos vfs communicates this on a later date after initial passport submissions.

Really need more clarification on this part please.



In my case, I paid for additional service (1 way courier ~16800 - check VFS Lagos website under additional services) and included the payment slip and the full address where I want the passport returned to. I included this and the other documents earlier stated in the envelope that I mailed to VFS Lagos.

Hello Everyone,

Please, has anyone recently sent their passports to Lagos vfs after PPR?

Kindly share the process please.

Thank you.


Gather all documents required by IRCC and your VFS:

1. International Passport(s)

2. 2 Passport Photographs (see further instructions below in addendum 1)

3. Passport Request Letter (aka ready for visa mail)

4. Duly filled Height and Eye Colour Chart. (A single form containing details for every member of the family)

5. IMM008 for those with a change in family composition (by a birth, death, marriage or divorce, etc)

6. 1 CVAC form. With only page 2 filled in by PA. Do not fill pages 3 & 4. Also advisable to fill in Caps. Ink color doesn't matter.

Put all documents in an envelope and proceed to DHL or any courier of your choice and pay for a one-way delivery to the VFS centre where you reside: Abuja or Lagos. Since I reside in Abuja, I sent mine to Abuja via UPS. You do not have to pay any fee if your submission centre also served as where you did your biometrics. That is: if you are submitting to Abuja and you did your biometrics in Lagos, you'd have to pay the transmission fee.

VFS sends to Accra, who will then submit to the high commission.

Addendum 1.
-2 recent passport photos per person.
-Not older than 6 months
-In Canadian PR dimension (refer to photo chart)
-1 detailed copy with the name and DOB of the person at the back. Below that, write or stamp the Name
& address of photo studio with date photo was taken.
-A second copy for each person is left plain


Other Things to note:

1. Wait for the VFS tracking details— they will give you update on when it will be sent to IRCC and when it will be returned to you
2. Wait for the return of your passport— VFS also uses DHL or any other courier to return.

Oh *dances on you guys behalf*. I just recieved my stamped passport today. I had submitted to VFS Abuja who then transmitted to Accra I suppose. I submitted via UPS on the 10th of November. My Visa was issued on the 12th of December, and I received it today. So give or take you get your passport back 2 weeks after it is stamped. All the best you guys, we are rooting for you all!

Congratulations on your visa!

Are you please able to point me to a link / help with the procedure you followed to send your passport to VAC for stamping? The request letter from IRCC isn’t very specific, plus I did not get much information from VAC Nigeria website.

Thanks
