please how can i pay my visa fees. i have tried both access and gtb bank cards transaction declined
Fund a barter card with USD. Avoid using 3rd parties to pay because there has been lots of payments made fraudulently by people for Nigerians paying for visa.

Please Has any June applicant from Nigeria gotten a medical request?... I applied June 23rd and nothing yet. No eligibility and review even started. Are they still processing April applicants or what..
I am in your shoes applied on 10th June and upto now, nothing has started the status still remains submittedd. The darkness surrounding the whole process makes this so frustrating. And btw I am from Kenya

Hello, I applied for a Canadian study permit through an agent and i have some concerns.
I was offered admission into st Clair college for September 2021 intake so I submitted my application for student permit to IRCC late March, did my biometrics in the first week of May, however st Clair college notified me two days after i did my biometrics, that my offer has been revoked due to the suspension of September intake and i was offered another admission for winter term (January 2022). I forwarded the new acceptance letter to my agent and we got no reply from ircc if they've received the documents. Cut to August 20 I got a medical request letter, did the medicals and IRCC received it on September 4, and i passed.
My concern is would they give the study visa based on the September resumption or the January resumption date, and if they give me based on September how do i go about the extension since I'm doing a one year program ?

Hello @Oladimeji2208,

Firstly I must congratulate you for passing your medicals, your passport request is on it's way.

Honestly you don't have any problem.

1. Once you get your visa, you can resume in January for your studies.

2. You can easily extend your visa while in canada, done it for many clients recently and in the past.

3. If you get to the border, and a CBSA agent asks why you are just coming tell them what happened with September intake. Shimples.

Congratulations again.

All the best in Canada.

If approved, you will be granted Study permit as per your revised LOA. TRV in this case S-1 can have different validity from the one obtained at POE. Make sure you present your new LoA for Winter semester
