Hello people smileySorry I have been MIA (it didn't easy.. grin grin).

Anyway just thought to bring you guys an important info because I know there has been or used to be a lot of debate on the length of PGWP. I speak for Manitoba alone sha o... Anyway.. For those of you looking for a 2 year course just to get 3 year PGWP, that might not be necessary. If you school in Manitoba you would likely get a 3 year work permit for a masters program even if you did coursework only that lasted for minimum of 8 months.

Una know say I no dey talk wet in I no know cheesy:DAnd take it from me, this is not a special case o, that is what is reigning here!

The only people I know that got 2 years after 1 year masters was because their passport would expire soon and they have option to renew the PGWP after they renew their passport.

Manitoba is the place mehn! Plus you only need 6 months work experience to apply for PR....

Congrats to all those who recently got their TRVs and double congrats to those who are still waiting on God!!!

Cheers! God Win!!!

@dreamsoso you need a US visa to transit thru the US. U can either apply for a transit visa or a normal visit visa (B1/B2). We applied for the normal visit visa and got 2 years...I think that's their default visa duration...


I ensured my flight didn't go through the US but you need a US (transit) visa or so if your flight passes through US.

@Team12 will be in a better position to address this issue I think. Her flight passed through Chicago and she obtained her US visa before leaving Nigeria.

Sorry guys for posting this late, being busy trying to settle down and furnish my apartment.

My trip was long (30 hrs plus transit time) but not stressful; Lagos-Dubai-Chicago-Winnipeg.

Transiting thru the USA was very easy, they didn't even check my 32kg Ghana must go of food stuff sef grin They just asked what I had inside and I said food stuff...das all!

Then at the Port of Entry in Canada, I had a trailer load of docs to show them...but the officer was just gisting me how Nigerians in her neighbourhood dress beautifully to church...she nor even ask for POE Intro letter sef, nothing at all. She just dey gist with me as she dey print my Study permit and my daughter's Visitor record (same format as a study permit)

They asked me what type of food stuff I had and I just listed some (I had all sorts of food stuff u can think of ...and yes! I had Zobo leaves and Ofio...lol...my preparation na die!)and one of the officers started telling me how I can get beans and Dry fish in Winnipeg...

It was fun and easy gaining entry and they were very much willing to assist with questions I had.

My Winnipeg goons where una dey? @Supermum, @Sholay2011 et al..we should hook up some time.

To all TRV hopefuls, I declare divine speed and favour on your apps in Jesus name, Amen.

Btw, I applied for a visitor visa for my mum. She has a conference in Halifax and I just got her pp request yesterday..#grateful

Na wa for these people o. I am so sorry for your delay!

It is well dear...I really had hopes...let's chat on whatsapp...

So, this morning, i got a maill from CIC, application refused.

I immediately sent a mail to my school UofM & UBC (though i prefer Uof M) requesting that my admission be deferred till next Fall.

Reasons for Denial:
_ Travel history
_ Purpose of visit

Lots of Love to all the very friendly though unknown faces, I appreciate you guys
especially Team 12 & Midnightparis aka Sholly 2011, you are both my forerunners, I WILL SEE YOU NEXT YEAR & WE SHALL CHOP YOUR GRADUATION chops together.

I"m running back to my legal practice, be right back next year.

I asked for it at consultant practice during my medicals becos I read from cic website that I could do that. Although I was even willing to pay for the extra report, they said they could not give me...

I was in Frankfurt with family and I never smelt anything like racism. We had to use the train a couple of times, and they were all so friendly. In fact, I had people who had to come sit beside us cos they wanted to have a close look at my daughter's hair style (with all the stylish beads and all) and they wie all throwing compliments. There were times we did not get a seat and some had to stand up for my daughter and I to sit. So like I sed, I smelt no racism, just a couple of nice pple here and there...and yes! they were very helpful in pointing us in the right direction. We had a great stay!!!

Oga! Even right from Frankfurt airport sef, there's already racism, speaking from experience. We're not saying everybody is racist but there are some countries that are generally more racist than others. Eg Russia and Germany. There's racism everywhere but it's is very prominent in some places
My opinion: if he's so particular about racism, especially as a minor, he should consider other countries instead

You don't need a study visa for a program that is less than 6 months in duration
Good evening good people of nairaland. I have already got myself into the hand of an Idiot called Agent before I found this thread through Google. Below are the summary of my situation: The so called Agent introduced to me a Three (3) Months Training Program which is schedule to hold in Ontario Canada between 7th of September, 2015 through 11th of December, 2015. Course fee and other charges already paid through him amounted to about 1.3million naira. In short we have submitted Application for Temporary Residence Visa since 30th of June, 2015 still praying and hoping for the TRV. Please I need your assistance in the following area: 1. Is there anything like study Visa in Canada below 6 months? If Yes 2. Can someone work with it? 3. Is it renewable there in Canada? Your prompt response will be appreciated God bless..

Scan as black and white or grey scale
I merged my docs into a file and d file was 4.19MB in MS word, when I converted the file to pdf using doPDF software, the file size was 21.9MB. I tried using the method in richcasey's link to reduce the file, it does reduced the file to 4.12MB but the problem is that the documents are very blurred. Pls who knows a best way to reduce file and also retain or nt affect much the legibility of the docs

I did not get my POE letter attached to an email. I simply downloaded it directly from my cic account. Unless thats what u mean..then I understand
That is what we regard as approval mail. Your POE letter is sent attached to an email. And since the first paragraph of the letter states that the visa is approved, we're simply calling it approval mail. Do you understand? What we're saying is that he/she didn't get that mail

I didnt get an approval mail. My cic account status just changed to "this application has been approved". The POE letter is sufficient

Nah, everyone should get it. The mail comes with an attached letter that introduces you to immigration at the airport. Some people just get it later than normal. If she picks her passport and the visa was approved, then she must request for the letter.

Please stop spreading wrong info. This is d second time u will be posting this...


Doing upfront medical complecate issues. if you go for medical examination whener cic as you to do is always faster.
The analysis is very simple, doing medical whenever medical request pop up on your application takes approximately one week, then what you see next is medical examination result, pass or fail.
Moreover, passport request also takes one week prior dispatched.
Up front medical complicate issues at times, they will have to merge your medical result with your application, i can see lot of peeps on the thread complaining about medical result or passport request.
So choose wisely.

@Godymn please do not lie on your family information form. State the facts, look for a co-sponsor and pray..you will be fine.


Was just thinking....Whats the implication if you only state that your the only child or mayb you state you and one of your sibling?
