  2. OMOFAR
    I NEED YOUR URGENT ADVICE AND HELP IN REDRAFTING A STRONG SOP. I APPLIED FOR GRADUATE CERTIFICATE IN ECONOMIC ANALYSIS OF PUBLIC POLICY. I HAVE A MASTERS IN BANKING IN FINANCE. AND A FIRST DEGREE IN ECONOMICS, I AM 40 WITH 13 YEARS EXPERIENCE.
    I GOT A REJECTION LETTER TODAY WITH ONLY ONE REASON AND I WANT TO REAPPLY. I AM TRYING TO GET A PR IN CANADA TO APPLY FOR GCMS NOTE FOR ME. I ATTACHED INTRO LETTER FROM MY ORGANIZATION , MANY LAND DOCUMENTS, STATEMENT OF ACCT WITH 6.5M, MARRIAGAE CERT, 3 CHILDREN BIRTH CERTIFICATES, PICTURE OF MY FAMILY, PENSION FUNDS OF OVER 7M
    BUT IN THE INTERIM, WHAT DO YOU THINK I SHOULD DO.???

    SEE THE ONLY REASON STATED BELOW


    • I am not satisfied that you will leave Canada at the end of your stay, as stipulated in subsection 216(1) of the IRPR, based on the purpose of your visit.

    You are welcome to reapply if you feel that you can respond to these concerns and can demonstrate that your situation meets the requirements. All new applications must be accompanied by a new processing fee.
     
  3. Did you apply online?
    And from Nigeria?
     
  4. Hello Moerariq,

    I hope well. Thank you for visiting this thread.

    I am sorry to hear about the refusal of your application. It is my assumption that you put all these info in your initial application if yes, I am sorry to say there is nothing much I can do at this point. Please try to refer to my post on self assessment for study permit. Your profile is very high risk and you are unlikely to get a study permit approved.

    1. Age: I cannot mention it enough on this thread. Age is a big factor in determining who gets visa approval. If at 40 you were applying for a PhD, your chances would have been much better, but for a graduate certificate, the chances are much slimmer.

    2. Academic Progression: You already have a Masters degree in Economics and now you want to pursue a graduate certificate. The VO will not see any academic progression here and unfortunately would not be convinced that your sole purpose is for study.

    3. Pension funds are not easily accessible as you may already know, until retirement age of 60 or 65. So the VO knows this. The VO is wondering that after 13 years of full time work experience why would you want to go and study for a graduate certificate degree regardless of its relevant to your current or past work experience.

    I would suggest you order for your CAIPS/GCMS notes to see specifically the issues raised against your profile and try to address them accurately. I would also say you should try get into a PhD program, that will give you a better chance. Finally, the socio-economic climate in Nigeria now is very unstable, the growing political tension in the country is at dangerous and alarming levels. 3 of my clients were at VFS Lekki yesterday, and they spent the whole day there, because of the multitude of people who are applying to escape the country. This can only lead to one thing, increased percentages of visa rejections. The VOs are all aware of this, so any application that looks suspicious would be immediately stepped down.

    I sincerely wish you all the best.

    Omofar
     
  5. yes all i went to vfs in Lagos for was bio-metrics (oh and to drop the passport when they requested for it). I did my medicals upfront applied 22nd and the medicals were passed 27th
     
  6. Wow
    That was really fast
     
  7. ************
    Tbvhh when i got the correspondence about bio-metrics I was already crying that it was a rejection because a decision was coming so soon. it was all God!

  10. d
    did you get medical request before passport request
     
  11. I did my medicals upfront. if you're going for a work or study visa you can do your medicals upfront so they already have it and don't have to ask you fro it. It usually takes time to book an appointment with the approved hospitals due to large volume of people applying for visa. so if you wait till the ask for it you will just be making the whole process longer. If you have already submitted you application then you have to wait for them to ask for it.
     
  12. Thanks for all your efforts

    i am 25 years old and already got admitted to study computer science as an undergraduate in a DLI in Canada, i did not start my secondary school early thats why i am getting my bsc at this age. but i learnt programming during this period
    i finished secondary school 2017, i have been working at a tech firm since then and earning an average of 300k monthly, now i have about 8 million in my account, my boss is willing to let me go out to study and when i return my job will be waiting for me with bigger pay, i have assistance from my cousin who lives in Europe and works as an engineer, i own a soap making business and got a full time scholarship from a registered foundation.

    i have never traveled before

    what do i need to do right before applying
     
  13. since you have a business and you claim theres a bigger job waiting for you after you grad, get a letter stating so from your employer

    submit it together with an sop and you should be fine

    what assistance from your cousin? financial? might not be such a good idea. best to find someone closer in relation to you for that
     
  14. so the age is not a problem??
    what if i show proof of relationship with my cousin
     
  15. ofc age is not a problem unless you are say 40 yrs old and applying to college or something. then maybe yes the vo will be highly suspecting of your true intentions

    how old is your cousin? is he married? cause its much less likely that a cousin will be willing to finance someone compared to say a parent.
