Kindly advise her properly..getting a Hosp and doctor don’t suffice anymore at least not in recent times..I advise her to get the Regional health authority letter everyone that applied was asked to get..ones inability to get it led to refusals for many people..
How will someone who is in Nigeria get the required Regional Health Authority letter? I had presume getting a doctor or hospital can help facilitate securing the authority letter OR what do you think?
Travel / Re: Giving Birth In Canada by koolkamzzy(m): 9:15am On May 18, 2020
I think the easiest way to get one is through referrals from friends who are based in a particular city where you intend to give birth.
Other option is from fellow landers who have used one in the past but you have to read through the thread for contacts/names that some people were kind enough to drop on the thread.
Also you may lookup via google but this mean you have to streamline your search to a particular city and be prepared to make many calls/ sending a as many mails as possible. If you are going to make a call, to take into consideration the time difference.
Another thing I find out is most hospitals won't accept direct clients, unless they are being referred by an OB/GYN. Also I find out that the OB/GYN first want to know if you are in Canada or have a Visa ready before they can give any positive response. But then again, you just have to try.

Please how do I go about getting the hospital or the OB/GYN? I want try after this lockdown but I am skeptical because of what I am reading here.

Good evening to all

I have gone through the pages and from my findings I understand that getting a visa for birth tourism is almost impossible currently, please correct me if I'm wrong.

I haven't visited any country before but I plan on going to Canada to give birth please what's the best visa to apply for and what chances do I stand. Any information will be helpful

This place is so dry now.

From what I understand, Canada hardly give visit visa without travel history. You may be lucky though.

Also I think first step to child birth waka is to first secure a hospital OR an OB/GYN to work with. Once that's done, then you can then start with the Visa application documentation.

When they stopped individuals and non banking sector from subscribing to the OMO, I knew the TB rate was going to drop.
Government want people to invest in the real sector without providing an enabling environment for business to strive, plus multiple taxes eveywhere.
Anyways let's see what rate they will publish for the Savings Bond next month undecided undecided undecided

Ah Félicitations! The mid/late September theory didn't hold then. Awesome.

If you are in Paris and i am free, we could grab a quick bite at the infamous "African Kitchen". Been a while i ate a local Nigerian meal.

Which arrondissement would you recommend as central for tourist?

Did they give you the tracking number? If yes, I think you can go to the UPS site to track it. or you can call UPS customer center and talk to them
Tel.: +234-1-2713606.

By the way why didn't you opt for self pick-up, or you're outside Lagos?

biffoqboxer:


U r right. It has been sent to VFS and dispatched to the courier agency - UPS. I have been informed to track the processed passport on www.ups.com, but I haven't been lucky with that - error message.

I just want to ask if anyone had experienced such, and I will like to seek how it got solved.
Travel / Re: Securing Visa To France, Applying From Nigeria... by koolkamzzy(m): 8:31am On Aug 29, 2019
I don't really understand what you mean by tracking on UPS. Even if you paid for courier, the passport will first get to the VFS centre before they are dispatched by courier. So it's the same tracking process that applies.

How do you track on UPS?

mobenjackson:


hello anyone, i need help on this.

For LASU, apply for transcript online and make payment online (just google Lasu transcript for the application link). Then take a print out of the payment to EXAM and Records for processing. ENSURE TO TAKE NOTE OF THE TRANSCRIPT TRACKING NUMBER DURING APPLICATION. Go with a copy of your certificate. When I did mine in 2015, the Head of exams and records was Mr Agunbiade (08033526959) don't know if he has been replaced. If not, you can talk to him to help fast track it. Also you have to look for the UPS person that the school uses and talk to him/her also, then the UPS person too can help you follow up. Also once WES sends verification email, you need to return back to school to make payment for them to send the verification back to WES, else, it will not be attended to.

How is ur spain package hope u got the visa... France shakara too much
Yeah, I got one month visa. It was an official trip, so the inviting company sent letter to embassy and a copy to me. I think this made it easy, even though it was my first schengen visa.
My visa expires 29th July, but my trip to France was suppose to be with bae, so we had to shift it to September and we plan to reapply together this week.. Do you think it's too soon? Given that I still have a valid visa?

Good news! From 1st of July, you don't need to book appointment before you can submit your visa application at VFS. All you need to do is get your papers, walk in and submit.

The VAC has turned introduction of prior online appointments into exploitation! I saw how people without appointments were ushered in through the backdoor and they were charged extra costs. I can categorically say that appointment dates were international left closed because of VAC' s exploitative ambition.
Suffice to say, that everything in 9ja is scam...
I hope the info is true because getting VFS appointment to submit one's application has now become the story of the camel and needle

Actually the trip was for three of us.
We're all friends. We're all business owners and 2 of us basically same business, the other one is into transport and logistics.

The first person initiated the trip. He loves traveling. He's been to Dubai 5 times, Ireland twice, Egypt and Kenya. He has a big Pig farm and supplies Pig feeds.

I am in the business of supplying of Pig feeds and I have trucks for supply.

The third person is our transport and logistics person, he does the transporting for us with his trucks before I got my own. He's still in charge of transport for the first person and myself should my truck not be available. Trucking is His business and he's responsible to so many corporate organizations.

This is our first time of applying schengen Visa. The first regular traveler told us to go with him to Netherlands, he plans having his vacation there, we no hv the intention of applying anything visa at moment, we cha agreed and arranged for dates that would be convenient for all, just 1 week. In fact, we can't afford to use more than that.

Documents submitted.
CAC documents for all of us. Mine is the earliest (3yrs ago)

Tax Cert: They both have, me no get. I just dey run my thingz. I'm the youngest of them.

Bank statements. The first person corporate and personal. His corporate 54m turnover four months, 9m balance. Mine 36m turnover four months 1.7m bal (I just approved a 4m transaction before I realized I was going to print my statement) the third person 6m bal.

Assets documents. Land docs 4-6-3, truck ownership docs, ministry of agriculture certified statistics of animals in his Pig farm, business LPOs. The two others are house owners, me in progress.

We're all legallegally married and 3-1-1 formation for child(ren) respectively. Marriage and birth certs submitted.

Travel Insurance 2wks each of us

Flight itinerary Ethiopian Air

Direct Hotel Reservation (Paid)

The trip would cost each of us less than #500k each according to our estimation. Hotel Reservation was a 1 room three bed, still lowers budget.

Now that this visa thing has been ignited, just for that justification that they're not certain we'll leave their country at the end of stay, we don enter am together. Now I go dey apply and reapply the same embassy until they finally have a rethink. No be say I need d visa, na jeje I stay my lane before, I had just thought this would be my first travel experience to the advanced countries aside my Ghana trip in 2016. The one and only stamp on my passport.

I read everything on this forum to apply for 3 of us.

Going by above, there's no justification for them to deny you this visa but las las na we dey rush them and some people have spoilt things for legitimate travellers.

Too Much applicant I assume. The World Cup is starting on Friday, the French Embassy will be filled with lot of applications not just in Nigeria but all over the world.
You should also know how Nigerians want to utilize every opportunity to travel. So they might be overwhelmed with visa applications

Yeah, I thought as much that world cup/ summer holiday is the reason for the rush.
Anyways, I finally got an opening for 14th under short/long stay. However my initial proposed travel date is 12th July, don't know if the one month gap is enough to process the Visa or I should move my travel date by one or two weeks more?

For those still trying to book, the trick is to keep refreshing the page as many times as possible, until the red words disappear then you can chose any of the options under main purpose of travel to get which next date is available.
