Hi, when VFS have your passport in Lagos, they will contact you and let you know. That is how the system works, same with DHL. No need to be jumpy, good things come to those who wait, cheers.

Dear Seniors and everyone.

I need your guidance here, my Bank statements, Fixed deposit, Police clearance, Draft for immigration fee and medicals was requested for and all these were sent. I got confirmation from my courier that the package was delivered to Accra, but unfortunately i got below message.

Please help with urgent advice and guidance .

Please note that i included my b ank statement with Balance of about 1.4m, joint account balance of about 1m, Fix deposit of 1m and my infant daughters account of about 150k.








We are now completing the assessment of your application for a permanent resident visa. It appears that you may not meet the requirements for immigration to Canada in the skilled worker category.

We have determined that you may be ineligible to Canada as a foreign national by virtue of the fact that you do not meet the Financials requirements necessary for a family of 3 (CAD$18,260) as outlined in section R76(1)(b) of the Immigration Refugee Protection Act and the Regulations:
The skilled worker must

(i) have in the form of transferable and available funds, unencumbered by debts or other obligations, an amount equal to one half of the minimum necessary income applicable in respect of the group of persons consisting of the skilled worker and their family members, or

(ii) be awarded points under paragraph 82(2)(a), (b) or (d) for arranged employment, as defined in subsection 82(1), in Canada.


Before we make a final decision, you may submit additional information relating to this issue. You must show that you have enough money to support yourself and your family after you get to Canada. You cannot borrow this money from another person. You must be able to use this money to pay the costs of living for your family (even if they are not coming with you). Valuations of current property are not acceptable as proof of available funds. You must have in the form of transferable and available funds, unencumbered by debts or other obligations. Send updated bank statements, fixed deposit certificates, etc. If you have made large deposits into your accounts or fixed term investments, you must provide evidence of where the funds originated.

Funshiba,
please remove all your name and detail from your post.......
i did not copy your post so you can be able to delete / edit your post.

i ll suggest that you consolidate all your money into an account that is solely in your name(principal applicant)......you can then explain how you came about the money(attaching the bank statements from other accounts......if you have more cash please include it and state how you got the additional money(e.g include receipts of sale of car or house or land or evidence that you liquidated your shares.)

I added all the money you documented and you have more than the required just that its not all in your name......some visa officer will take what you have but another wants it in the principal applicant name

May you find favour

Hello Funshiba...sad that you got that mail after sending all Accra requested from you...however if you take time to read through the mail carefully you will notice the constant repetition of two things.."If you have made large deposits into
your accounts or fixed term investments, you must provide evidence of where the funds
originated"
...what it means is that they want to know the source of the Fixed deposit investment...if you took it from your savings account,did you attach savings bank statement showing where the 1m in the fixed term deposit originated from?...Actually having accounts in the name of any member of your family was not the issue because you are allowed to include that of your spouse or jointly held account...the area they are concerned is the source of the staggered money in different form of accounts..viz-a viz...your own personal account,joint account,FD and your kids account...so please if the FD originated from your personal account send a bank statement signifying where it came from...otherwise if it came via sales of any property include the document showing the FD money came from that source. hope this helps.Best of luck,It will surely end in praise.Cheer up man .God never fails.

Thanks alot for the kind words...

I will look into this and attach evidence....

in the case of the large deposit of N900,000 that came into my personal account, I attached a letter i wrote and the company's response to me to refund my investment, but i did not attach the company's statement as i do not have access to that..... (I hope that is ok to clear that?)

Hello house, I have a question regarding Canadian immigration via Visitor Visa and I would like to know if anyone can give me some advise. I would like to know if it is possible for me to get a Canadian visitor visa and then speak to prospective employers within the duration of my stay in Canada. I am interested in immigrating as TFW and I have met some employers who seem very interested however when they find out that I am outside Canada then the interest gradually declines, some employers have suggested that I come over to study and then they would employ me but we all know how expensive the tuition for international students is like in Canada. NOTE that I don't intend to use the visitor visa to work as that would be impossible and a violation of the immigration rules. I intend to physically meet employers, have a job interview with them and then get the employer to apply for an LMIA on my behalf, that way when I return back to Nigeria after the expiration of the visitor visa, I would be sure that my encounter with the employers turned out positive and that an LMIA has been applied for on my behalf. So please guys, take your time to read this and let me know what you think. If you have an alternative method then I would gladly welcome it, do not hesitate to advise me on anything that could be beneficial regarding Canadian immigration.Thanks in advance
