Culled from the Canadian POE manual...

"13.18 Valid visas in expired passports
Visa officers will not put a visa in an expired document and will not issue a visa for a period surpassing the expiry date of the passport or travel document. Occasionally, documents containing valid visas are cancelled or replaced. If a valid visa inside an expired document is presented at the POE along with a valid passport or travel document, the visa is considered valid."
dear kukus, what about if the airline does not allow you to enter the plane because your passport will soon expire?what will you do?fight and argue with them?prove to them with documents?remember they will just be following orders. note the words: visa is inside an expired passport.
which means (from my point of view), you should have a valid passport plus the expired one

Generally, if you have a valid visa in an expired passport, the visa is still considered valid; the Canadian authorities see to agree with that too, hence the instruction in their POE manual. A close family member has both British and US visas in an expired passport, and she hasn't had a problem traveling.

I was/am in this exact same situation. Do you have the contract for the sale of the property and was the sale made after the request for the POF?

Hi Kuskus,

I had actually put these lands for sale before now in anticipation of the need to raise money for eventual departure of my family after visa issuance. But the pricing was nt encouraging so I was waiting for a good price until now that the Accra letter has come. And I had no choice other than to start calling the intended buyers through a real estate firm. So the sale actually went through this weekend (certainly after the quest for POF). The transfer of ownership & agreement/deeds will be finalised early this week due to the prevailing urgency.

So, Kuskus what are my chances or how best to handle my response to Accra?

What about the Pension account stmt (with 25% withdrawal after resignation from current work place) ?

It`s good you mentioned these parcels of land in your initial application so include all documents showing your ownership and all papers showing the sale so that AVO is convinced that the bulk payment into your account now is truly from the sale of the said plots of land. Your cover letter should tie in the whole transaction from when you used the land in your initial application (assets) till when you sold them towards raising your settlement funds for relocation to Canada. Cheers.

My brother, not to worry at all. I will share my experience/visa officer's concern in this regard with you. I'm about to head out to the airport now to catch a flight out of Accra. Will hit you up with a PM when I get to Lagos by the grace of God.

Now here is my TESTIMONY below that God has been good to me and to encourage especially those who were asked to go for further medical tests

During the course of my medicals at Qlife, The doctor asked me specific questions relating to Tuberculosis, I had to tell him the truth that I had TB in 1998,he asked if I had done done previous X-RAYS to see if there was no scar in my chest area, I told him I had done other chest X-rays but was not in a position to interpret the results. He bluntly told me that AVO might raise issues because I mentioned TB and he then subjected me to further tests (hepatitis B and C) immediately and told me to expect further medical request from AVO. I left feeling very downcast and wished that I had lied, but there was nothing I could do but to wait for the dreaded mail from AVO for further medical test. I did a lot of research online searching for people who had TB in the past and if the had been denied PR visas, I could not find any. I just handed over everything to God and forgot about it. Lo and behold I checked my ECAS two weeks later and saw "Medicals Received". I was surprised that I did not receive any mail from AVO for further medical test, which is a clear evidence of God at work in my life.

In the course of adding my spouse, I had to declare on the Background declaration form question 6k that I was treated of TB and I began to panic about the declaration since I did not declare it in the first application because that question was not explicit enough for me then, I had to send a pm to Pipis Husband concerning my fears, but with the resolve that it was better to say the truth up front than to be subjected to making explanations if I did not declare it. PH encouraged me that it was best to declare the truth since I had already mentioned it to the Doctor during my medicals so there would be consistency. I declared it and sincerely handed over everything to God again. Thank God it did not trigger any further scrutiny. To cut long story short, when I received the Medical Surveillance Undertaking form from AVO that I will visit a Provincial Medical center within 30 days of my landing in Canada for the authorities to put me under medical surveillance since I have a case of inactive TB that was treated, I cried tears of joy,because I knew the race had ended well for me. I am happy because God has answered my prayers and yours truly our PR Visas are here now. For all who have been subjected to further medical tests by AVO, do not be worried, my God who did it for me will surely do it for you. Just Keep the faith, you shall surely get there. I still have some other testimonies to share concerning this process, in all God remains God of everything.Just KEEP FAITH. Special thanks to PIPIS HUSBAND for the guidance at every stage when I had doubts. Thanks to NEYOBASH who made sure of the seamless transmission of our documents to AVO and back, even with that UPS still says I have some change they will give back to me. Thank you all forum members who now are more like family members. ONE LOVE, WE SHALL GET THERE. AMEN

Regarding this pof. Is there any reason one cannot say that a parent or a sibling dashed you money? What if this is actually the case? How would you present this information. And is parents funds not an acceptable source of funds in the first place?
