Travel / Re: Who Has Applied for international Passport After March 1 New Price? by sunky644(m): 8:25pm On Apr 02
I did last Thursday 28th March. Actually it was not DIY, an Immigration officer called me to ensure I do it before 1st April when the new price will take effect. It actually cost me #30,000 at Akure Immigration office and I did capturing same day.

NB - I was told if you do it yourself they will still charge you administrative charges which may eventually add up to make the #30k they would ve collected.
Travel / Re: What Does One Need To Have To Apply For Nigerian Passport? by sunky644(m): 10:57am On Feb 10
I am aware you will need National ID Card issued by NIMC. As for price I will appreciate if we get right info from those who renewed recently but before this my current one expired it cost me #21,000 but heard it's now about #30,000. It is cheaper if you can DoItYourself but don't know how long the process will take. As for the 10 year validity passport, rumour has it that the cost is about #70,000 and production will commence in June 2019.

Can anyone help me with a contact email or phone number for someone who works with NIPOST?
Please, this is urgent.

I now know why stories of people using IOM facilitated tickets are scarce. Getting a response from those people is more difficult than getting transcript from lautech.
Are you a Ladokite?
My person, transcripts thing na hell for LAUTECH oo, my wife's Masters transcript is yet to be sent since April 2018. Unfortunately we still have to apply for our undergraduate transcripts from same school for eca evaluation. Pls if you know any fastrack means kindly let me know pls. Thanks
Travel / Re: My Monthly Savings In Canada by sunky644(m): 3:16am On Dec 14, 2018
@Atutupoyoyo, you have really inspired quite a number of us. I stayed awake reading from Page 1-9 and I must say your mum's story sealed the encouragement.
I am a lecturer with PhD in view in Naija (Biochemistry field with about 10 publications in well indexed international journals) and my wife is a Masters degree holder (Food Science) also in naija. The dream of becoming a Professor and fear of not getting academic position if we relocate to Canada is withholding me from taking step.
If I blaze the trial to take step in 2019 and we move after my PhD, what degree will I have to go for in Canada to be relevant?
What's the possibility of landing an Academic position?
Is their conversion program for Food Scientists to Dietitian in Canada, if yes, what's the program duration?
My brother, if you could leave a #400k monthly job in Naija to put life in right track and start as a Security in Canada (I am aware there is dignity of labour), then why should I stay glued to just #130k per month job in Naija even when my wife couldn't get a job here despite her Masters.
Guys, help me dissect my case and short bio and let me hear your opinions...pls....

Even though I am officially an intruder in this thread, I hope I will not be discriminated?
I am a Biochemist, specializing in Nutritional Biochemistry in Masters with PhD in view now. I am interested in No. 4 Nutrition and Dietetics, pls do I qualify for the 2.5yrs fastrack program to get qualified as a Dietitian?
Also, could you pls give the degree requirements and job responsibilities of Clinical Researchers?

LMay:
ALTERNATE HEALTH PROGRAMS AVAILABLE TO IMGs IN CANADA

As residency is really competitive in Canada, below are a list of backup alternate opportunities in the health field. Kindly note that these were gleaned from my research & hearsays from landed IMGs. May or may not be 100% correct.

1. Compressed Nursing Program (2 years) at Western, McMaster, UToronto etc

- 2 years to become a RN.

- Then do Masters in Nursing to bcm a Nurse Practitioner

- NP job responsibilities is same as a family doctor's except inability to prescribe Narcotics)

-Salary is about $100k per annum.


2. Physician Assistant Program at UofT and McMaster.

- Do NOT go for this! Limited job positions (about 3 or 4 across Ontario)

- In Canada, the Nurse Practitioners ruled out the need for PA


3. Public Health Masters at McMaster, Western, Waterloo, Brook etc.

-Limited jobs, hard to get Masters admission, Competitive and sometimes requires registered medical professionals

3b. Public Health Bachelors degree at Ryerson U & Conestoga College

- Fast track 2 years rather than 4 years


4. Nutrition and Dietitics

-To graduate as a RD (Registered Dietician)

-Fast track 2.5years at Western and Guelph U.


5. Michener Ultrasound and Windsor Ultrasound

-Very very competitive

- Your chance to get in with only your medical degree is about 10%

- On completion, you'll work as an Ultrasound Technologist


6. Clinical Research Diploma at McMaster (Part time), Humber College (Online), Western

- Quite a number of openings available for Clinical Researchers


8. Masters in eHealth at McMaster

- This is solely for tech savvy medics.

- You've got love for programming? This is for you!

- Admission is NOT competitive as such

- I know nothing about the job opportunities available in this niche.

9. Clinical Assistant jobs in Alberta and Manitoba.

- Heard they're a better route to residency (I don't know how).

- And pay better than Physician Assistant jobs.
Travel / Re: Student visa for Phd Admission Or PR In Canada: Best Option For A Family Of 5 by sunky644(m): 8:19am On Oct 20, 2018
Thanks for your contribution bro, it's true the world doesn't start and end in Canada but I don't think the resources available before me is enough to give my children the kind of life I want for them hence our decision to decide planning on exiting the country.
As for admission, I just started contacting the Profs just last week so I can't say getting supervisor and admission is a herculean task.
As for money matter, it may not be available now but I am optimistic I would have raised reasonable amount from other investment by the time we get ITA.
I am only asking the best path to thread and the easiest to secure visa between the Student visa or PR process taking into consideration that I want to leave with my family (I don't want to leave them behind, they mean the world to me).
Be that as it may, is there any legitimate alternative means apart from the two I ve stated pls?
RealTrump:
1. Admission is not forthcoming.
2. Supervisors are not showing interest.
3. Money troubles to travel.
4. Whether to take family or not.

Well, this whole thing is not stacked in your favour at all. Even if all documents r intact with money in the bank, they might still not give a visa.

If you ask me, I will say don't sell your house. D world does not start n end in Canada alone.
Travel / Student visa for Phd Admission Or PR In Canada: Best Option For A Family Of 5 by sunky644(m): 6:20am On Oct 20, 2018
Morning fellow Nlanders and gurus in the house. To give a short bio, I am in mid-30s, i have a Masters degree (Biochemistry) with PhD in view in Naija, work as a lecturer in a private university with over 3yrs work experience. Wife (also in mid-30s) also has Masters (Food Sceience) and working on part-time currently (one year experience) at school of health technology, she has about three years primary and secondary teaching experience. We just thought of relocating to Canada majorly for better future for our kids (7, 3 and 1 yrs old) and we don't mind starting life afresh. I have read a lot in this section and I am currently contacting some Profs for PhD supervision but no positive response yet. Someone advised applying for PR via express entry is the best bet but proof of fund of #7.5Million for my family size is the challenge (although we ve not done IELTS and certificate evaluation) cos if we decide to sell our three bedroom apartment somewhere in the southwest, it still will not give the amount.
My question is, do I continue with hunting for PhD admission?
If I am privileged to get funding and admission, how easy is securing the visa bearing it in mind that I will want to travel with my family (wife and 3 kids)?
Will my decision to go with family not jeopardize securing visa. I am aware there is the need to have strong ties to my country and convince the VO that I will return to my country, will my university study leave letter and having an aged father be enough?
If we decide to stick to express entry, based on the short bio, who should be the principal applicant. My fear is my university may not give the proof of work letter if we get ITA and need to prepare accompanying documents.
Gurus in the house, pls look into my case and give your candid advise I ve been ruminating on this for over three months while gathering more information and knowledge about Canada immigration. Thanks, expecting your comments...

FrenchyL:


My brother i have come to learn that fine structures does not equal quality teaching! You are very correct Sir!

I totally disagree with you man, my first degree was done in a state university, Masters was completed in a top federal university and PhD in view nearing completion in same federal university. I make bold to say it that i did not receive the type of quality teaching we give students at Elizade university. I just returned from SIWES inspection and I must say I am quite impressed with the comments and reports from their industry supervisors. Private universities is definitely taking over...

NB - I hope you all know that Harvard is a private university ?

If care isn't taken, there will be a time in the future when our federal universities will lose relevance.

Admit it or not, private universities have come to stay and are really giving the govt institutions a run for their money.
Nigeria needs to up his game.

You are very right bro, the Vice President (Prof. Yemi Osinbajo) said the same thing during our maiden convocation few months ago

you have to register the glo sim to enable bis in the host routing table of a blackberry os 7 device.Simply get any blackberry phone,(not os10)
go into settings 'Options', then 'Advanced Options', then
'Host Routing Table', then click the
menu key and click 'register' 3 times.wait for a message that yourdevice has been registered with the handheld network.Try browsing with the sim on the blackberry phone to confirm it,then remove the sim and insert into the andriod phone previously tweaked to use glo bis.It should be working perfectly after doing this.

Hi,
For those of you that won't to rock Glo BIS. download the files below.
Engineering mod.apk
https://drive.google.com/file/d/0BwmQ0ZMuvq4MSG5xUWw0S3Q5ZUU/view?usp=docslist_api



BBGen.apk
https://drive.google.com/file/d/0BwmQ0ZMuvq4MTWlaejdnRU4wUjQ/view?usp=docslist_api


The first one is mtk engineering mode, you'll use it to change your imei number...

How to use...
Download, install and open it.
Select mtk settings
Swipe Left and select CDs information
Select Radio information
You'll see phone 1 and phone 2; phone 1 is sim 1 while phone 2 is sim 2.

For phone one....

AT space +EGMR=1,7,"15 digit imei "
After inputting, send AT command



Example- AT +EGMR=1,7,"862557381537425"

Then send AT command.

For phone 2/sim 2

Same process but slight modification

AT +EGMR=1,10,"864532864275268"

Then send AT command.

For the imei change to take effect,you'll either turn on airplane mode for about for seconds or reboot your phone.


The second link=BBGEN


BBGEN helps you generate blackberry imei numbers without sweating.

use it to get your random Imei for the 15 digit imei you'll input in the AT command line.

GLO BIS code is Comonth to 777 for monthly sub @1k

capped at 3GB

YOUR APN is blackberry.net

Don't know if I missed any crucial info though


Enjoy....

Pls somebody help, I ve followed this step in-to-to and still my Gionee M3 mini failed to connect despite having about 2.5gig data on my glo sim card which will expire on 8th January. Pls I need a rescue...
