Greetings!

If you are interested in hearing the truth, and still ready to proceed despite the challenges, you are welcome here. If you want to be pampered, please go elsewhere.

I am here offer advise to anyone who is Nigerian and needs assistance in navigating the dangerous waters of Canadian study permit application. Identify what the problem might be and how to possibly over come them.

It would be better to come here before you apply, rather than after you have applied, it might be too late to assist you then. Also, never rush to put in an application, if you are rejected once, your chances of being rejected a second time increases by about 60-70%.

Looking forward to assisting anyone with question here.

You are welcome.

Cheers

Good evening
My visa was refused on June 12 and I requested for a gcms on August 7 to know the reason why my visa was denied, i received my gcms last week and my vo said she doesn't see the reason why i can't study my course in my country and that my traveling history is limited, I'm an undergraduate student and I'm to resume on January. Please can you help me by giving advice on what i should do. Thanks

I have done the medicals they requested for, and now i'm seeing this "Visa application, tracking ID No.xxxxxxxxxx – Your processed passport is ready for collection , on 09/09/2019 at the Canada Visa Application Centre. To know more, please call VAC helpline number or visit VAC website", does this mean good? like visa approved?

Hello Wiz99,

I hope and pray so. Ideally, you should get a letter informing you via email that your application has been approved. Its normally a PDF. Keep hope alive.

All the best.

hey omofar, am on fire. though my passport is not yet back to me, the school refused to give me exemption letter for geographic information system to arrive this late due to missed quiz and attendance blah blah. now my course is only available for september. they said i can choose another for january but i chose project management for a year which they said its filled up. can choosing a 2 year programme in business- finance cause a problem at the POE concerning study permit because its a lot different from GIS but the business-finance is more like a dream course tho. i did science in undergraduate. thank you

GIS #5: HAS THE CANADIAN EMBASSY BLACKLISTED NIGERIAN APPLICANTS?

I think so!

Today I got a notification for a client, the application was refused a second time.....:(:(:(:(:(

(I am definitely quitting this business, it's becoming embarrassing!) :mad::mad::mad::mad::mad::mad:

This client wanted to travel for holiday, runs a business with an annual turnover of over N1bn, had over N100M in their account balance, had travelled to several countries... Yet the application was refused a second time.

What the f@#$ is this?!

Take note, it was an online application that was sent to the London Office. The most vindictive, inefficient, slowest in processing applications. Took over two months just to reject a genuine application. I am still investigating.

In the meantime, I strongly suggest you stop online applications that will send your applications to Kenya or London.

Package your application properly, carry yourself to Ghana, and submit at the VFS office there. No GUARANTEES, but at least you might stand a better chance..

We are still observing.

All the best.

OK, but please.... I thought that paper application must process in your own country???

I am not sure. There two different things.

1. TRV- This is what will be stamped on your passport. It is called a temporary resident permit. It allows you to stay in Canada.

2. Study Permit: At the POE, the CBSA (Canadian Border patrol) will issue you a Study permit. The study permit they will issue to you at the POE will be determined by the LOA you present. So if you present an LOA for 1 year, then you will get a study permit for 1-year.

3. Suggestion/Advice: Relax. Get your passport back, tell the school you want your GIS course for September 2020. Then wait in Nigeria till then, get a job if you don't have one already, just buy time till around June/July ending next year, then travel for your program.

What will happen is you will have only 1-year left on your TRV, but the border officer will issue 2-year study permit. They will ask you why you are just resuming, you will tell them the visa came late and you could not meet the original time. So even if your TRV expires is not a big deal, the only thing is that you MUST not travel out of Canada, but you can continue with your studies. If you wish to travel you can apply for a renewal of the TRV. Both permits run parallel to one another.

I hope this helps.

All the best.

Greetings Friends,

Hope well.

I have another success story. It is quite unique because the person and I met on this platform, till today the person and I have never physically met each other, the person's initial application had been rejected, we worked together, in-fact until early hours of this morning we had lost hope because the correspondence letter came in yesterday.

But today, right now we are rejoicing. Glory be to God.

Online Submission: 17th of July
Review of Eligibility: 1st of August
Correspondence Letter: 12th August
Passport Request: 13th August.

Visa Stamping: Awaiting


Congratulations to @Ospinto_1234

To God alone be all the glory.

Let's hear your positive stories too.

All the best.
