My sentiments exactly. I want to play it safe with Ethiopian Airlines. My question is, if IRCC is saying they won't give authorization for immediate family, where should family members now get the letter to travel with? Why can't airlines understand this? All this confusion is annoying.
Chirolechick:
I’ll advise to try and avoid Lufthansa, they almost sent back a mother who is an immediate family, they asked her for authorization letter, it was horrible, Ethiopian seems to be the only airline that understands the difference between immediate and extended family.

Lufthansa does not require a transit visa if you are not leaving the airport or flying through any other location other than Frankfurt from Nigeria. The layover I saw for Frankfurt is 3hrs, 10 mins. The longest was 7hrs. ET is usually 2hrs 45mins or so. I am planning for July as well.
maziude:


Nawa.

We are looking at July for mumsy; looking for tickets and trying to avoid transit in countries that requires transit visa. Plus, less layovers especially with the covid test period validity.
Travel / Re: Canada Visit/tourist Visa Discussion. by Newmum0615: 2:55pm On Apr 13, 2021
So far, Lufthansa is cheaper on my mum's intended flight date. My hesitation stems from what happened with my dad's BA ticket last year. The ticket is still on hold because BA is refusing to fly passengers other than citizens and PRs. It was cheaper than ET by almost 100k when I booked it last year but since the start of the pandemic, it has been on hold. Awoof is running my belle right now. I am waiting to rebook when they lift restrictions. At this point, I am tilting towards ET cos come rain, come shine, they will most likely fly

@Lexy123 this and a copy of your PR card and birth cert. That's what others have said. She nailed it.
Chirolechick:
If you write them they’ll tell you she’s an immediate family and doesn’t need the authorization letter, so just print the portion on their website that exempts her as an immediate family, a copy of your PR card and birth certificate, that’s all Ethiopian airline asked for

Hi,

Does anyone have suggestions on good and affordable airlines flying from Lagos to Toronto at the moment please? I am torn between Lufthansa and Ethiopian Airlines but prices are not smiling. I know summer travel dates are crazy but any help on options is appreciated.
PS: The flight is for my mum, so I am particular about shorter layovers.

Thank you.

Hi,

I'd say that the documents you submit for every application will differ for every applicant. Even a particular applicant might need different documents at the time of applying depending on the circumstances. There is also no way to ensure that your application is approved. I will advise you strongly demonstrate her ties to Nigeria as much as you can and also highlight the funds available for the trip. Do what you can to submit a good application and If you believe in prayer, pray and hope for the best.

For me, I submitted the following:

1. Introduction letter from my mum's employer
2. Employment docs
3. Educational docs
4: Tax certificate
5. 3 months payslips
6. Salary account statement
7. Purpose of travel letter (Demonstration of ties & Budget breakdown for the trip was included in this letter)
8. Introduction letter from me and my spouse (we sponsored the trip) I highlighted our funds and her ties back home in these letters too.
9. My mum's saving account statement
10. Bank statement from me and my spouse showing funds
11. Photograph
12. Nigerian Passport
13. Application form IMM5257E
13. Family information form IMM5465
14. Proof of relationship with me
15. PR Cards (Spouse & I)
16. Client Information letter highlighting all the submitted docs
17. Marriage Certificate/Change of name affidavit (Her education & Work docs were in her maiden name)
18. Birth certificates for all my siblings (To demonstrate ties)
19. Flight reservation
20. Employment letters from me and my spouse including payslips

This is all I can remember for now, but I think it pretty much covered it for us.

Cheers.

Whew! Thanks a lot.

There won’t be any update until IRCC receives it. Visa application centre is same as VFS.

When it gets to VFS Abuja, they would send it to IRCC. You should see update on gckey account next week.


And don’t worry about the deadline, like I said earlier it automatically renews for another 30/60/90 days due to covid.

Travel / Re: Canada Visit/tourist Visa Discussion. by Newmum0615: 3:09pm On Mar 26, 2021
Thank you.

On Tuesday I got this email: Your application, tracking ID No. xxxxxxxx is in transit and has been dispatched to the IRCC Office through the Canada Visa Application Centre, Lagos Office, on 3/23/2021 2:26:10 PM for processing

After no update on my account, I sent a mail on Thursday, I got this response this morning: Your application, tracking ID No. xxxxxx has been received at the Canada Visa Application Centre, Abuja OC on 3/26/2021 10:46:57 AM and is in transit to the IRCC Office in Abuja OC for processing.

So I was confused on what both mails meant. Does it mean, they sent the passport from Lagos VFS to Abuja VFS after the initial mail said it has already been sent to IRCC Lagos? I chatted with an agent and the agent said the passport was sent to the Abuja embassy. I don't know which information to go with now. Is Canada Visa Application Centre, Abuja OC the same as IRCC Office in Abuja? There is no update on the GCKey account yet. Is this the type of mail you got?


maziude:


It depends on which office it was sent to. My mum’s passport was sent from VFS Lagos to VFS Abuja then to IRCC. It took roughly 5-7 days for it to get to IRCC Abuja. The same morning it got there was when her cic account was updated as approved. Also the passport was dispatched back to VFS that same day.
Travel / Re: Canada Visit/tourist Visa Discussion. by Newmum0615: 5:01pm On Mar 25, 2021
Hi,

Does anyone have an idea of how long it takes from when VFS Lagos sends you a notification that your passport has been dispatched to the IRCC office to when you actually get an update on your GCKey account please? So, basically, time from VFS dispatch till IRCC gets your passport. Mine was sent on Tuesday, tracking still shows in transit.

Thank you.
Travel / Re: Canada Visit/tourist Visa Discussion. by Newmum0615: 5:03pm On Mar 22, 2021
Hi Omua,

How did you get tracking number from VFS? Was your passport sent to Lagos or Abuja?

Travel / Re: Canada Visit/tourist Visa Discussion. by Newmum0615: 4:19pm On Mar 22, 2021
Hi Maziude,

Did you send your mum's passport via UPS or DHL to VFS Lagos? I sent my mum's own via UPS to VFS Lagos on the 12th and it showed that it was delivered to VFS on the 15th of this month. I have no way of knowing if VFS has sent it out. I am worried cos the 30 days timeline given by the request letter is fast approaching. How many days from when you submitted through courier (if you used one) till when you saw the update on the IRCC account? Thanks.


maziude:
Update:

We sent mumsy PP last week Friday to Lagos VFS.

It got there 2 days ago.

Today we got an email that it arrived at VFS Abuja and another email that it was being sent to IRCC. 1 hour later we got an email that the passport is with IRCC and under processing.

I guess, Lagos is backed up, hence the need for Abuja.


UpDate: I just checked gckey now, there is a document number and expiry date. I guess passport is stamped.

Oh I see. Thank you. NYSC helps a lot of people, they should leave it like that for us abeg.
Mmamaroon:


Newmum, recent brouhaha from GCMS notes where VO said NYSC was an internship programme. The issue (just my view) looks more like an NOC mismatch and missing ref letter problem. Applicant provided LOE instead. Applicants choosing managerial NOCs (starting with 0) for NYSC also seem unpopular with VOs - they may be thinking how can a recent graduate plan, direct and coordinate the affairs of a firm/department?

1. I need contact for transcript in former Anambra State University, now Odimegwu Ojukwu University please. If you attended the school or have a reliable contact, please pm me.

2. What course can someone who studied Public Administration do to earn points for a 2nd degree? Preferably one that can be completed in less than 1 year and would not be subject to ASUU wahala. Is NACETEM still a good option and would a1st degree in Public Admin meet the requirements?

Biko, help me.

@Prettiepearlz I saw your follow up post talking about her going for OINP. In that case, she may be able to use 1114 but also accompanied by an LOE. I am still a little skewed towards 6235 if she can address the loans part.
Newmum0615:
This might be coming late, sorry.
For me, a lot of the duties under her JD fall under both NOCs. She should have been able to use either. It would also have been ok to leave it at 6235, however, the only reservation I have is that the loans aspect of the duties are not detailed. It might be easy for an inexperienced VO to look at the JD and conclude that she did not do enough of loan processing, if you get what I mean. The VO might not even attribute the term 'risk assets' to loans (this is me assuming that an inexperienced VO might actually be reviewing applications). That being said, I think she can use 6235 though, but if I am to advise, I would say she should add an LOE to buttress that part of her JD and her role in creating loans and monitoring default and repayments for customers.

Cheers.

Good morning everyone. Noc gurus, please we need your advice. I am asking for a friend. Her job title in the bank she works with is Relationship officer in Mortgage and stockbroking. Initially she entered the pool with 6235 (Financial sales representative) but now she intends to change it to other financial officers(1114) as she feels it aligns more with her JD than the former. Please see attached the JD for NOC 1114 and the JD listed by her HR. The HR is not willing to tweak anything as we know most banks already have their format as she even had to beg him to tweak and use words that a bit similar to the JD and not the initial letter the unit gave. Kindly advice on this as she wants to be sure that the JD the HR wrote on her reference letter is okay for her to claim NOC 1114

I did not use 1114 o. Lol. I wasn't able to get my past duties to align with it. I used my current role at the time for 0122. I never was fully aligned with using 1114 on its own for FT roles. Your JD must be tailored to that of the NOC.

How una dey o?

Elektra008:


Mama, I am in no way disputing all you put down here, I just made a response to what you said about someone saying ft title was no longer in noc 1114 example titles.

Almost every banker with ft role that got ppr used 1114 including new mum, the onus lies on the applicant to match his/her JD to the ones on the noc website.

It's people that are unhappy that Canada has taken the power to be abusive away from them that will be arguing against this your post. Enuf said.
SixSigma1:


@ oseoji:
Everything you said here is so on point.

I shake my head when I hear people say that the system here is set up to destroy the family. As far as I am concerned, the system is fair, and it is set up to protect everybody irrespective of your gender (male or female). All you need to do is to know the system; do the right things and your family will be intact.

Apart from the potential death of the person being abused (even in situations where the abuse is not physical), what many people fail to understand is the extent of other damages caused by such abuse (physical, psychological, emotional etc.) on the person being abused, the children and the society. The kids see everything going on and they in turn may become abuser or they feel it is okay to be abused in a relationship. You end up bringing up kids that becomes abusers and bully people at school or they keep quiet when being abused or bullied at school because they think it is okay to be abused.

Even if the person being abused refuses to call the police, the neighbors may notice that something is wrong and call the police. When you take your kids to see the doctor, or you take them to the hospital, they always ask them if they feel safe at home or if they are being abused at home. Be rest assured that if the kids do not feel safe at home they will say so and you can expect a child protection agent and or police knocking on your door if it is as a result of being abused at home. So, as you can see no matter how much you try to hide the abuse, it will eventually become open. The only solution is NO ABUSE, and everybody will be happy.

Finally, I repeat, if anybody is being abused in their relationship report the abuse to the police or talk to a lawyer. To the abuser, please STOP IT before you destroy yourself with a criminal record and inability to get a job in Canada (see my earlier comments below about this). Think about this before you start abusing somebody (or before committing any type of crime) and claiming the system is set up to destroy you. The system is not destroying you. You are the one destroying yourself.

Your head is there.
oseoji:


Typical gaslighting.Is it the system that raises hands for a partner to be beaten up? Is it the system that causes a partner to batter a person's mind relentlessly?
The family has already been destroyed by the abuser so why is the government being blamed?

Abuse is abuse,there's no IF ,AND or BUT.

The person benefitting from the police being called is the one who has suffered emotional, physical or psychological damage and rightly so.

A person who is able to get away from an abusive partner should be congratulated for being strong enough to leave.

Children suffer so much damage by watching their parents go at each other constantly, you produce unhappy children who repeat the same cycle thinking it is normal.

If a woman or man decides to use Canada as an opportunity to revenge,it's not anyone's place to chastise them. Do you know what they suffered?

If you treat a whole human being like shit for years and years and they bear it because of being in the Nigerian society,when they move to Canada and see they deserve better,it's only expected that the person will act out.

The guilt does NOT lie at the foot of the abused!

All these una statements are the reason why people die in abusive situations..There is only so much that a human being can take without breaking down.

Anyone who is abused should seek counseling for themselves to gather strength to move on.It is not your job to hold brief for your abuser.

You deserve better,your children deserve to grow up in a healthy happy home.
