Started my course online already and not particularly sure of what to do now sef but God dey sha.

Sorry for the delay. If you have the resources and time you can appeal your case(you have a strong case), but if you don't want to go that route you can reapply again (upon receiving your gcms note) with the same documents.

Thanks xo much for this eye opener, this is very insightful. God bless you

Sequel to your last paragraph, the letter my family friend should write, who should she address it to, IRCC or CBSA ?

Thanks
The letter will only be needed on arrival at the airport, so it doesn't concern IRCC.

Nope, you cant get a PPR before medicals
Actually you can, but very rare. Someone got PPR before medical invitation about a week ago.
Though it is not the normal processing way but with God all protocols can be altered

Please oooo, I want to ask... When someone receives medical request does it mean his/her visa will surely be approved?

I'm asking because when people say they have received a medical request,,,, congratulations up on congratulations will be dropping...
Medical invitation doesn't mean your application has been approved, but from experience it means it is almost approved (about 99.9%).

I seriously want to forgo this nysc and focus to traveling this year! I’m confused
I will strongly advise against abandoning NYSC if you are to serve this year. You can pursue both at the same time, because as it is now the earliest you will start studying will be in September (that is if you have admission already).

When I heard this stuff I thought it was a joke..but I decided to act on it. I stopped and deleted all negative comments on my social media, I even changed my name in some ,since someone told me it's part of the background check they do. But today i confirmed it and I am really shocked... pls see this reason for refusal below...
Some applicants don't know how far these VOs can go and they take things for granted. Nairaland is very popular and some VOs do come here to read people's comments. When I see people saying they will out money in their account and remove it while their application is still active I just laugh.
A WORD IS ENOUGH FOR THE WISE.
Congratulations on your approval

Good morning. I want to ask you something

Are you saying that the fund for Sch fees should be in my sponsors account and not mine that only living expense should be in my account?

Who is your sponsor to you? If it is a 3rd party (not your parents or siblings) then he/she needs to either pay your tuition fee directly to the school before you apply (but please get to know the school's refund policy before making any payment) or transfer the tuition fee and living expenses into your personal account and write a letter of support explaining everything.
If the sponsor is not a 3rd party then they can decide to either transfer funds to you or leave it int their account while you use their SOA to apply.

I made one mistake , I have submitted my Passpoort to VFS already and I guess one of the requirements of Form A is the international passport (although I have the copy) dont know if that will be accepted but the deadline is fast approaching .


I will probably use the Form A if I can’t find anyone here


Thanks
The copy of your passport will be accepted, just tell them you submitted it along with your application, but make sure you show them proof (application slip).

Good Afternoon House

I'm looking to apply for a Master's Programme in Canada. But before I begin the process I'll like to know if Canada does Extensive Immigration/ Background check for Student visa applicants. I don't have a Criminal record in Nigeria. But I had one in the Uk and was also deported a few years ago. If I don't state that I have traveled to the UK. Would Canadian immigration find out about my Criminal record and Deportation?
Yes they do, so it is better you declare it and tell them how the said issue came about.
What kind of criminal activity was it that got you deported? If it is something you can explain then you might be considered, but if not I doubt they will allow you into Canada.
But it is better you declare it and try to explain your reasons behind it and let them know times have changed since then, if you don't declare they will eventually know and that's around 5 years ban and makes your cases even more complicated

Can someone answer question 2 please.
If you are sponsoring yourself then you have to show funds to cover the entire duration of your program because you are not supposed to work while studying (even if you do it won't be enough to cover for your fees as you are only allowed to work around 20hrs/week). But if you have a sponsor then he/she needs to show available fund for at least the first year then show means of getting funds to cover subsequent years.

Good afternoon house,
Please eligibility review started today. Also, they said they are already reviewing my medical result. My concern is that, I didn't Medical request letter neither did I do upfront medical. I was just wondering what medical result they are reviewing. I hope it wont have any negative effect on my application.
Hopefully you will get medical invitation soon. I will advise you book for your medical date ASAP (pending when IRCC officially sends your medical invitation).

I googled2 schools that offer masters in finance - McMaster university and university of Saskatchewan. They require gmat/gre, ielts, toefl. I asked someone and he said I should just write only ielts . I’m confused
Are you going for post graduate program? Most schools exempt Nigerians from taking IELTS or any other English exams since Nigeria is an English speaking country and the language of instruction for schools in Nigeria is English language. I haven't checked McMasters if they exempt Nigerians, but I am sure Saskatchewan does. Read the pages well and you will get the information you seek

Hello everyone,

I am new to this thread. I have applied for admission to 2 schools in Canada (yet to get a decision). In the main time, I wanted to know if there is anything I need to start doing like I read some pages back about building of personal account which I don’t understand. My mum will be my sponsor and her bank statement will be in USD(a US bank statement), will that be a problem during my application?
Your mom's account in whatever currency won't be a problem. Building of account is for people who prior to the interest to study in Canada have account that is not active. In your case you have nothing to worry about since you mom's account has been active and has regular inflow/outflow.

Thanks for your response.
Also, I work in a bank but I intend getting a letter from a friend's company which is about 2years old but the company is doing well. He has agreed to state that he is offering to partner with me after studies in Canada. He agreed to provide all his company's document. I intend to use this as an home tie. Pls any input about this? Is it a welcome idea? I am skeptical abt going ahead or not
Good idea, will be even better if your intended program is related to what the company is into

Hello @Frankrobbn1

I am applying for a study permit but I was denied a tourist visa in 2019 and was in the EE pool but expired now. Do I need to mention both while writing my LOE/SOP?
You don't really have to mention it in your LOE, but MAKE sure you thick "YES" on the application form when asked if you have ever applied or been denied Canada or any other country's visa in the past (also state the reason for the denial). Doing that on the form should be enough.
N.B: To be clear, I said it doesn't really matter if you mention it in your LOE simply because the denied application isn't related to study and the requirement is different from that of studies. The most important place to say it will be on your application form, where you will asked if you have ever applied or been denied visa before. PLEASE MAKE SURE YOU ANSWER "YES" TO THAT

To all those trying to withdraw or return all the money in their account after printing SOA, please be careful so you don't come back here to cry. IRCC can be unpredictable and have the right to ask for another SOA after the first SOA, imagine if they do and there's nothing in your account.

hello sir , can I message you ... I’m planning to go for masters In finance after my nysc service . I don’t know where to start from
Sorry I don't reply DMs for now, but kindly ask all questions here and they will be attended to as fast as possible.
To have an idea on how to start kindly read the first page of this part and you will see the list of documents to submit and also links on very important steps to take. Also compare the information with that of www.cic.gc.ca just to be sure you are doing the right thing.
For admission, check all schools offering your intended course and their requirements to see which fits you ( financially and otherwise).
GOOD LUCK

Let me say this
Im working in a bank and most times, embassies only write the bank to confirm if truly the statement and reference letter are real. They don't ask for sitting balance of account holders.
Once the bank confirm the statement and reference letter to be real, that settles the case.
You didn't address my point, so what happens if the embassy request for updated SOA again during the process? Or you don't know cases like that do happen?
Also, I can tell you for free with my experience I have seen cases where the vo stated in more than one applicant's gcms note the activities in the applicant's bank account after SOA submission because they withdrew the money after applying. That's an argument we have had on this platform some years ago and I don't think I will want to continue that now.
Stay safe

I'm lost .You mean even presently those that their passport were requested for recently also would go through this ? I thought once the passport is stamped that's all or am I wrong ?
The stamp on your passport is a temporary resident visa(TRV) that allows you to travel to Canada, on arrival at the airport the immigration officer will now go through your admission letter to see the duration of your course, it it that duration of your course that will now determine the number of years study/work permit that will be issued to you.
Getting the study permit at the airport doesn't take much time (you might be asked some questions about what's the name of your school, your course or asked nothing).
DO YOU UNDERSTAND IT NOW?

buzzme:


.... Hi @mcobex, so how long would the initial study visa be valid??... I mean, the first visa you would get before getting the study permit at the POE.

It will surely end in praise.
The TRV is just to gain you access to Canada, on arrival you will be given a study/work permit depending on the duration of your program (at least 1 year)

hi please, can i ask a question real quick. Let’s say I get my visa in February, can i travel to Canada the same month when my classes are starting april or is there a certain amount of days before your resumption date you can come cause I want to work a little. I’m 17 sorry, i don’t know much about this
Traveling 2 months to resumption isn't bad, but with the current pandemic and the fact lessons are done online I will advise you travel 1 month to resumption.
Another thing is, if you are going 2 months to resumption it means more expenses (rent, food and other utilities).
So, think about it before making your move

Thank you.
Please she's planning of going through NSE as she already wrote IELTS a year ago with 7.5 bands but as regard the My Bank Statement, will the VO have access to her account activities after application as she might need to return the 3M after application?
If she returns the 3M what will she use on getting to Canada? Let's be careful about removing money from account after applying, the vo has every right to ask for updated SOA at anytime during the processing time. Imagine if that happens and there's no money left in her account.
I won't encourage that

You are right, maternal relative but not so immediate. The sponsor paid her tuition fee which was stated in her previous application. There's plan for the sponsor to send 3M to her account one month to her re application now but we are trying to get what the VO meant by that statement so as to guide in the document to also add.
Great, let the sponsor pay the 3M into her account before she reapplies

Yes, the sponsor submitted his international passport and also paid her tuition fee from his bank. Both the passport and receipt were attached to his initial application.
Then the vo made a mistake. She can appeal the case (if she has the time and resources) or reapply and BOLDLY state her sponsor has showed commitment by paying her fees, so she doesn't know why they delayed her based on her sponsor

Maternal or paternal uncle?
She should provide the corresponding birth certificate (which is a govt issued I.D) of her mum or Dad to show relationship with the uncle. Plus their respective passports, a family tree diagram in the SOP would help, plus family pictures
What he/she meant by distant relative is that they didn't share same surname, that's why she refers to the sponsor as her "uncle"(that's my understanding). In cases like this, showing commitment (paying the applicant's tuition fee and living expenses before application)will convince the vo. Also, if the sponsor has ever assisted the applicant in the past it will be nice to also draw the vo's attention to it
