Hello,

please how do I book my medicals in Lagos? I have tried calling them, no response.
If you have gotten a request letter from IRCC, you can go to any of the recommended institution with your letter and book physically they will consider and give you a closer date.

Positive outcome from the JR doesnt mean automatic PPR and i dont see IRCC is picking on you or intend to frastruate. Its normal to revalidate some of the information and move to the next stage. If you have been requested with some information, please go ahead to submit. You have until Sep 24, i believe sufficient time to request from banks. I have seen cases after JR where they ask more than one documents but in your case, they ask one. Barely seen automatic ppr after JR. I suppose the only doubt left is wrapped around Proof of fund now

So decide what you want to study in Canada since you just graduated from a nursing program and have I assume no work experience. Select a program that builds on your education and gives you career opportunities in your home country. Google the program name with Canadian college. You need to justify spending tens of thousands of dollars and how it will build on your career.

Hello guys. Hello Omofar. I have over the months monitored this thread and wish to commend you and other contributors for the quality of the advice. Unfortunately, I applied to Canadian Immigration before I discovered this thread but I am not new to visa applications so it was not a problem applying for a SP for the first time in Canada. By way of background, I'm 40 years old, male, a lawyer practicing in Lagos, Nigeria. I'm married with 3 kids. My last study was in 2010 in the UK where I obtained a LLM with distinction.

Here is my timeline:

Application submission: May 12
Biometrics: (from previous application. Was issued a 4 years visit visa to expire in mid 2023)
Medical: Upfront approved June 12
Eligibility review: September 13
BVL: September 13
PPR: September 13

I observed that different opinions are expressed on the need to pay deposit or full tuition fees before applying. In my case, I didn't see the need to pay the deposit when my visa application was pending. I just did a good job of explaining why I'm applying for a second masters and how it will positively impact my new law partnership after working for many years in top law firms upon returning to Nigeria after my first LL.M in the UK. The truth is, the course is important for my career aspirations and Ottawa University will help me achieve this.

I wish everyone waiting for decision good luck and remember to do a good job of writing an exemplary Letter of Explanation when the need arise. Please note that I can only give tips and won't share my LoE.

All the best.

Hello everyone,

I finally received PPR & BVL this morning! So excited. When am I supposed to receive the letter of introduction? Do they send this after they’ve received your passport? I’m not too sure how that works.
Please help, thank you
