    Please I submitted my application July 12,2016. Please today is November 7th and since we’ve been sending mails to the embassy, it says it is still being processed. The extension deadline for my school is November 15, 2016 but my school resumed since September 6th, 2016. I have not been called for medicals. Please is there a possibility I’ll get something this week? I’m from Nigeria. Thank you.

      Hello Adebayo. Sometimes application processing takes longer than what you hoped that it will be. As long as it is being processed, you know it is moving forward.

      Hello Abigail. A study visa is one of the most difficult to obtain because the reviewing officer needs to make 100% certain that you will return home after your studies are complete. Many people who attempt to apply on their own, face delays or problems. I am going to suggest that you contact us to make an appointment to talk with one of our immigration professionals who will be able to see how we can speed up the process for you. You can book an appointment by calling us at 1-855-886-8472 or online at http://goo.gl/JFZqPm

      Hello Andrew. Your medicals are good for up to 12 months from the time that they are prepared.

    I submitted an electronic application for permanent residence in March from Nigeria. I got a letter in MyCic saying that I don’t meet the financial requirements. But I submitted proof of funds in excess of the requirements. No reason was given. I was asked to submit additional documents within 30 days but no provision was made in MyCic profile to upload the document. How and where should I send the document to? I’m not sure if it’s to Accra office or an office in Canada. Also, will it be via courier or email? Please help! Thanks a lot.

        If you want to continue the process on your own, you should contact the office that you have been dealing with to see what is the best way for them to receive what they have asked for. When we work with a case, all of our documents are handled electronically.

      Hello Charles. There is no good news. Many airlines will not even let someone board a flight with documentation that is out of date. She will have to find the closest Canadian Embassy and start the passport approval process there.

      Hello Osondu. The process will take a minimum of six months. As you can imagine, the busier the embassy is, the longer the reply will take.
