Hi All, Hope you are doing well. I am a Canadian PR and will be applying for my mother's visitor visa in September. My mother lives in Bangladesh. She is retired, has properties, some fixed deposits and some savings in account. For family ties, one of my brother lives in another city whom she often visits. She has recent travel history in Russia and India. I could really use your expertise on the following questions: 1. She was refused Canadian Visa in 2016 twice on grounds of travel history and purpose of visit. At that time I was not in Canada, she had no travel history and was invited by her nephew in Canada. Situation has changed as she has travel history now and I am as her son is inviting her now. But will her past refusals create any problem in the next visa decision? 2. On top of the application form, theres a field UCI. Should I use the past UCI to fill it up? 3. Our hope is to get a multiple visa so she can visit me every year for 2-3 months. We are thinking of applying for at least 2 months stay (4 to 5 months preferrable)? Is it more than normal or can it create any negative suspicion? 4. She will be showing about 6500 Canadian dollars in her bank account and proof of fixed deposits (another 10000 canadian dollars). Will it be enough for 2 months stay? 5. In the invitation letter, I will be declaring that all her expenses in Canada will be covered by me which is true. So, in the application form "Funds available for my stay" field...should I mention my available balance or hers? or both combined?? Would appreciate your suggestions. Thanks in advance!
