Very detailed and informative and easy to follow. Mga questions ko, dito sa blog mo nasagot. Yung days po ba na processing time for VISA stamping is working days or including weekend? I submitted my passport July 30th, then validated na the next day. I was hoping na ready for pick up na sya by Thursday or Friday. Hi, ang alam ko, working days. Pero di ko sure kasi I got mine after 3 working days 5 including weekend , so hindi ko malaman kung paano nila kinount. Submitted all my docs including DTI for my business, Bank Cert, Car ORCR, Employment Cert, invitation letter from my 1st cousin working for Scotiabank and staying in Vancouver since saying she will be shouldering accommodation and living expenses.

A few more days before i get the decision. What do you think are my chances of getting approved? Thanks, Kris! Hirap masabi. Depende kasi yan sa napakaraming factors. But good luck!!! Sana maapprove! Question, would you see it in your account if the process has already started? Like makikita ko ba kung nagstart na yung Review of Eligibility? Planning to go to Canada by January My Brod invited me to visit them and he will shoulder all the expenses.

How abt the flight tickets do I need to reserve it? Or will buy once visa is approve. Upon checking tickets reservations is only 24hrs. You can get this from travel agencies. Applying in person meaning no need to apply online? We will go and submit all docs to VAC office? Is it OK to collate all our docs and submit as one application? My Canada tourist visa will expire on October Please assist on how to renew the said visa. Is it true? Ur info helps a lot but may i ask u any about my situation. I am to apply a visa to canada to file an insurance claim of a dead person we r not related by blood she us my Godmother by heart we r for us two we r like a mother and daughter she made me her benificiary what documents should i hav to submit then aside from the death cert and th docs from insurance company.

In more details i am a single parent and just a part time worker.. How possibly i can v given a visit visa. Hi Nora, I have no idea, sorry. Thanks so mich ivreally appreciate ur quick reply.. I hope u undestand.. Hi Nora, we rarely consult agencies for visa eh unless mandatory. We once asked for help from Gazelle Travel and Tours for our Schengen visa. Schengen yun, hindi Canada. Okay naman ang experience namin sa kanila, naging go-to agency na namin sila pag may kelangan kami from an agency like flight reservation, etc.

Hello, would like to ask if what document to submit ba?

Search form

My boyfriend will be the one to cover my expenses. Do I still need to submit a bank statement or certificate? And does the school needs to write a letter for me too? Hi Jes, it will increase your chances of approval if you could provide bank cert and statement with sufficient funds, even if sponsored yung trip. Hello po! Kailangan pa po bang mag fingerprints and photo biometrics in person o pwd po ba ang online?

CANADA VISA: 12222 REQUIREMENTS & Online Application for Filipinos

However, if you want better chances of approval, we strongly recommend submitting everything that you can provide. Hello po, tanong ko lang paano kung may friend ako dun sa Canada tho canadian na po sya pero currently wala po syang work kasi katatapos lang nya sa course nya last week pero willing syang gumawa ng invitation letter. Pwede po bang instead na mag book ako ng hotel pwede ko bang ilagay yung adress nya? First time ko magtravel overseas. Yes, pwede sya gumawa ng invitation letter if dun sya nakatira.

Pwede ka rin magstay sa kanya. You will need to submit a copy of their citizen card. Pero note na mahihirapan ma-approve if first time mo magtravel abroad kasi travel history is part of the requirements. Question lang po, if my husband is working overseas SG and me and my son here in the philippines pano kayo application process since sya ang principal na mgaapply? And may nwala ako isang passport which is madami din stamps, pwde ko kaya skip na ung passport na un or need kpa ipatrace sa DFA since they have a copy of my old passport and stamps. Thank you in advance! Hi Cherish, naku, di ko alam if makakaapekto ung magkaiba kayo ng country of residence.

Pero I think pwede naman since pare-pareho naman kayo ng nationality. I think same pa rin ang process. If kaya mo makuha yung past copies ng stamps mo, okay yun. If wala, pwede mong iexplain un sa isang letter and samahan mo ng Affidavit of Loss, if may kopya ka pa nun. Meron po akong Uncle dun nagwowork kapatid ng Mother ko pero hindi ko siya sponsor sa trip or hindi ako hihingi ng invitation letter sa kanya kasi ang plan ko sarili kung expense yung trip ko.

Kelangan pa bang ilagay siya sa form or any? Hi Bea, hindi ko na matandaan lahat ng fields sa form, pero if merong field na nag-aask if meron kang non-immediate family member sa Canada, kelangan mo ilagay. If hindi naman sya yung inviter, hindi sya sponsor, and hindi ka naman sa kanya magse-stay, di naman kailangang ilagay sa contact person mo in canada. Thanks for the very informative writeup here.

You are correct with the dates, usually its just 11 days to process. My husband applied 2 years ago and it took him 2 weeks to get his passport with the Canada Visa already. Just last August 8 I applied for our family with a toddler , but I only saw that our visa was approved yesterday! And I had to check the online status daily because they wont email you the status. And our flight is Sept 16! Thanks for sharing, Chris! Yeah, best is 3 months in advance. I know someone who waited for over a month too!

Regarding po dun sa mga Forms, need kasi ng mga signature. Ano po yung ginawa nyo dun? Did you print it out then signed and scanned it? Fill out the forms electronically and leave the signature field blank. Hi Leen can i have your email address? Im also planning to apply din kasi. If pwede magtulungan tayo sa application process.. Hahaha This is my first time to apply a visa since I only travelled asian countries without necessary visa..

Nalilito din kasi talaga ako. Hi Leen naka pag apply kana? Any update? Kung pwede mo ako help sa ginawa mong step by step hehe First time ko kasi mag apply ng Visa. Can i have your email? Everyday ko po bini-VIsit tong site niyo. Sobrang naguguluhan po kasi ako dahil nandito ako ngayon sa Singapore na nag wowork. Iba po ang mga magiging requirements ko dahil ang system ang employment ko dito is very different diyan sa PInas.

So ngayon po, if you can help me.. Please… to send me the type of documents na naisend niyo po kahit samples lang po hindi yung actual documents kasi alam ko na thats private. Please sir, I need assistance. God bless you always Sir! Hi Rish, di ko actually gets kung saan ka naguguluhan sa requirements kasi straightforward naman sya. Yung mga sinubmit ko na docs, basically lahat nung nilista ko sa taas na for employed. Sa Proof of Purpose of Travel, I submitted all of these: — flight reservation departing Canada return or onward ticket — your travel itinerary — hotel booking.

I have a feeling na hindi mo sya nabasa kasi you also missed yung tungkol sa signature field kahit na 3x ko sya minention sa post sa taas, in boldface pa. Sir, one more thing, nag book po kasi ako ng japan trip after po sana ng canada trip ko sa january. Pero po kasi hindi pa ko nag apply ng Visa ko for japan because sabi po 3 months lang ang validity upon approval so balak ko palang po mag apply ng japan visa mga bandang november. Is it okay po kaya na include ko sa cover letter ko and attached ko din yung confirmed return tickets ko?

Thank you so so much again Sir! Pero I think pwede naman kasi it shows na may balak kang bumalik. Pag inuupload ko ung form imm ung preview di ko makita ung file. Lumalabas ung please wait… ganun ba tlga un? Pag finill up lang un using adobe hindi mawawala ung mga ittype ko pag sinave na? Sorry po dami tanong. I just want to thank you for compiling these for public use. It has been a great help! Instructions are very clear and concise.. Via online or in person? Also, Pareho ba chance to get approve ng online and in person? I would like to ask if I will have to submit all my passports expired and valid when they request to submit my passport?

Hi Danica, I brought both my current and expired passports but they took only one, the valid one. Sa may UCI po ano po ilalagay dun?

Thank you po last question na po bago ko isubmit ang application ko tomorrow. Thank you so much po. So okay lang po kayo na yung ginawa kong cover letter and isubmit or explanation letter? Hi Rish, usually may Letter of Explanation under Optional. Pero if wala, pwede mong isama ung cover letter sa Purpose of Travel. Good pm sir! It is stated that effective sept 10, , the world trade center along amorsolo st.

Is this true sir or still in ecoplaza along chino roces? Hi Edward, thanks for bringing this up. It looks like they have moved already to the World Center along Gil Puyat. Very helpful at informative po yung blog nyo! Thank you po ulit!!! Yung mga nakalista po sa taas un lang po ang dadalhin pag issubmit na ung passport?

I have been following this blog for almost a year now and sobra pong laking tulong! Eto po profile ko: yrs old, F, single, licensed pharmacist -working for german logistic company for almost 4 years can provide COE, ITR, Performance bonus, etc -travel fund plane ticket, accomodation, allowance is k with staggered transaction, staying for 20 days only -have 3 cc one is gold -own a house thru pagibig 1 year palang -travel history: Singapore, Hongkong, Macau, Malaysia, South Korea, Japan, Bali Indonesia and then this december I have a confirmed fight for Vietnam, Cambodia and Indonesia -I will purchase travel insurance — I will not purchase a confirmed flight bibili lang pag nakapasa na sa visa -I have a boyfriend in Canada citizen na sya.

My question is: 1. I am applying for tourist visa next year around Feb-March malaki po kaya chance ko na maapprove? My boyfriend will only sponsor our meals and other stuff like entrances sa mga museum, park, etc pero I will shoulder my own accomodation and plane ticket, we are planning to book hotels.

Mas better ba na ideclare upon application na sakanila ako titira they own a house or okay lang po na mag hotel? Mas better po ba na ideclare ko yung relationship namin ng bf ko for 2 years with pictures or as a friend lang? For the cover letter it should be address to Embassy of Canada here in the Philippines? Sorry ang dami ko pong tanong 1 year ko na po itong pinaplano at kinakabahan pa din ako : Thank you po sa reply. Godbless :. Pag ganitong outside our experience na, mahirap na sa amin na mag-assess. Pawang opinyon lang namin ito, so take it at your own risk. Sa tingin ko, based sa profile mo, ok naman yung chance na maapprove kasi okay naman rootedness mo, which is yung pinakamalaking issue ng embassies sa applicants.

However, madalas, declaring na you know someone sa destination country affects your chances negatively kasi it shows na you have more reasons to overstay. No problem, Jonalyn! Balitaan mo kami para makatulong din sa ibang nasa similar situation in the future. I want to know if ano balita sa iyo? Hi Lorna, ano po ba yung nakalagay dun sa personal checklist sa account nyo? Kung ano po yung naka-indicate, yun po. Yung sa akin kasi, nakalagay Form , so yun ung inupload ko. Hi Yoshke, Ive been meaning to thank you for this blog. Then 6 days later I received a passport request. And thanks for coming back to this blog just to share this.

It made our day kahit maaga pa, haha. Im here in Canada right now and Im planning to invite my cousin to come visit us here. Can I apply here online for her? In theory, yes, since the application is done online. As long as you have all the details and the required documents, it could work. Ang husband ko ang primary applicant and I noticed in the submission of the documents portion na yung part lang ni primary applicant ang may mga attachments ng docs while doon sa other members of the family yung forms at lang plus yung current passports lang ang nakalagay na isa submit?

Hi mam eileen just. Want to ask you what you did about the submission of the documents. We are planning to apply also as a family and my husband will be the primary applicant. Hi, Do I need to download the IMM form Use of a family member representative for online application and have the other members joining the applicant in one submission to sign the forms? Then after signing have them scanned and uploaded? Hi Eileen, naku pasensya na, hindi ko pa kasi naranasan mag-apply with family so hindi ko alam talaga sagot.

Hi Yoshke! I will be applying for a Canadian visitor visa. However, I am travelling for a week this Nov. I remember reading somewhere that you have to be in the Philippines when you receive the decision. Have you heard of that ruling before or have you come across it in your past research? Hi MT, ang alam ko lang, you have 30 days to submit your passport from the moment they send you the notice. Sorry additional unrelated question… when you submitted bank certificates or statements, did you redact the numbers? Good day po. What other documents can I attach to the Client Information?

Do I still need to make an explanation letter along with those other documents? Yung travel history dapat ma gumawa ka ng excel file to specify lahat including date and country visited or yung passport stamp sapat na? Hi Andy, yes, we use flight reservation from Gazelle too when we apply for visas. Mas ok though if valid sya at the time na nagsubmit ka kahit na nag-expire sya during processing or while waiting for results.

Actually Yoshke, grabe parang bumuhos na yung kaba ko hahaha but at the same time optimistic pa din ako. They need alternatives and I will be most grateful if you can lend me your opinion kasi pangarap ko talaga makita ang Niagara :. The last time in Japan though, I was granted a 6-month Cultural Activities visa along with a resident card I attended some kind course in Tenri. Never overstayed, and no matter the length of stay I am granted anywhere I always leave way too early. Leaning on 7. Travel fund is CAD. Then I decided to travel Japan and Macau at the latter part of since I had the money saved up and my mum and I do real estate , then I went back to Japan March for said course.

How to Get a Job in Canada in A Filipino's Ultimate Guide

After that, I found work August By the time I apply for a visa I would be employed for 9 months. Will be able to provide contract details, invoices, bank statements, etc. By the way, do they also offer assistance in conjuring up an itinerary? I tried googling their website but for the life of me I cannot find it. Since I am working remotely. The alternative I thought of was this. My mum has 3 land titles, and as her sole living child, and since she never married my dad, they automatically pass down to me.

I have 4 from my dad. I am not in touch with them, I have no idea what they are up to. Basically we just share a dad. What do you suggest is the best way to go by that? Where do you think I will take the biggest hit, and what can you suggest to help me strengthen my case? Thank you so much and more power!!! About ITR. Freelancers can still have an ITR. You just need to register and pay taxes. Especially because…. Marami namang naaapprove na walang land titles pero may regular office job sila. This is not an expert advice ha, haha.

Di ko kasi naexperience ito. Hopefully by early next year. It will have a sample itinerary din. I think your biggest concern is employment. I can relate to that because I used to be a freelancer too, working online, so you should try to submit as many supporting docs as you can to strengthen your case.

ITR will be helpful and you can still do something about it. Last year na deny po ako ng US visa, then i ireapply last month, and nag grant po ako ng visa…do i have declare na deny ako dati? Di ko alam if ano dapat gawin kasi di ko alam if nasa record mo un or may access ba sila dun. Pero honesty is the best policy. Thanks for the reply… Nilagay ko sya sa application Got my passport today multiple entry visa valid for 3 years… 1 week din ung waiting…. Napakalaking tulong po ng article na ito.

Just follow the instructions by the book and wala kayong magiging problema. Share ko na lang din siguro, I dunno lang kung dahil security feature ng website ng Canadian government, make sure to double check the version of IMM form na active sa website.. I downloaded here version 7 and filled it up, but apparently, sa mismong website nila, nagrelease sila ng version I had trouble at first kasi version 7 sinasubmit ko but version 10 pala ang gamit sa website, so I have to fill up version 10 then pumasok.

Then for some wierd reason, problem naman dun sa mother ko, by the time na nagsubmit ako ng version 10, ang active version sa website is version 7 HAHAHA :D, so I have to submit version 7 kasi nageerror yung version 10 na form. Since I applied here in Singapore, I waited too long I submitted my Application last October 17 and I received an automated message that they received my application. Nag aalala po kasi ako kung scam yung email. Sinabi din po kasi nila sobrang tagal na daw po naka pending ang application ko. And did they tell you before po b sa email nila sir na they will contact you? Wala naman po ako narereceive na calls from them.

And true, sobrang tagal na nga po ng application ko pero inisip ko nalang na kailangan iconsider kapag masyado marami ang applicants na nagka sabay saby. Pease sir help me. Hi Rish, when you said you applied in SG, online application pa rin or via agency ka? Sa experience ko and sa mga friends ko na tinulungan ko mag-apply online, walang ganung email and walang tumatawag. Lahat ng correspondence ay andun sa GCkey account. Yung sa email, mga notifications lang na meron nang message sa account ko. Tama na yung website na pinag-applyan mo? Check mo kung anong website ka nag-apply.

Hi Sir, online po. After I submit naman po ng application ko i received 2 emails na i have new messages sa GCkey account and i checked meron nga po. Yes Sir tama po kayo scam yun. Question nalang po is it really possible na abutin ng almost a month ang pag receive ng confirmation po from Canada Immig? Nag submit po kasi ako October And until now wala po update.

Hi Rish, yes, possible yun na umabot ng 1 month. Kasi yung average right now is 16 days. Average yun, so pwedeng shorter, pwede ring longer than that. Depende kasi sya sa volume din ng nag-apply. Okay Sir. Maraming Salamat po. Nakatulong po talaga ito ng malaki sa part ko. I want to thank you for creating this page. Super helpful siya sa pag apply namin ng friend ko online although at first she insisted to apply in person haha! It seems easier na to apply online when I read your page : We applied last Oct. We are now waiting for our passports to be delivered and hoping for a multiple entry visa.

Thank you so much again and God bless you more! Hi Yoshke, I want to thank you very much for this step by step visa application to Canada. I googled which one is easier. Luckily, I saw your post. I followed it. I applied online this Nov. That was so fast and hassle free!! Thanks again and God Bless you! Hi jeline, if close relative, pwedeng birth certificates. If hindi, pwedeng pictures or any other record. Just so curious kasi hindi ko alam san ko iuupload ung docs nato. Though ako lang naman bibisita sa tita ko and not with my husband.

Siguro may field where u can upload Proof of Relationship, but I dunno for sure. I need your help po, I wanna hear your thoughts thank you po!!! Your trip will be sponsoring your trip or ikaw yung gagastos? Yoshke, odd question. I dont know if naexperience nyo na pero when you send the passport thru VFS, how do you deal with the small slip of paper from HK na parang immig slip?

Sorry kung weird yung question haha. Did you staple it para di mawala? Hi MT, this immig slip is the one that replaces the stamp, right? Then ask the VFS staff if you really must include that slip. My hunch is, no need for it. I decided to keep it. Thanks for everything. Your blogs are well-written and your responses are professional and helpful. Thanks so much for this excellent resource. I am going to place a link to you at my web site. Di ko po alam kapag ganyan po. Nag apply po ako online. Nabayaran na ang VISA fee.

Paano po ang mode of payment if by mailing po ipapadala ang original passport? Hi Irish, di ko alam if different yung handling fee pag by mail. Follow mo na lang yung link that I included sa post to see the details kung paano mag-apply by mail. Ang mode of payment lang na tinatanggap nila ay thru Managers Cheque. Tapos yun na ang pinadala ko sa VAC with my passport, yung letter of passport submission, and personal information kung saan nila ipapadala pabalik yung passport. For Almost 2 mos. Meaning po nun approved na? Nandito po kasi ako sa Singapore nag wowork so hindi ko pa po alam saan ko isusubmit.

Pero ang question ko po is okay na po kapag ganun? Canadian embassy is asking us to submit our passport, do we also need to submit a copy of the documents we submitted online? Hi Angela, no po. Only yung hinihingi nila for passport submission. Nakalista un sa email nila. Finally approved po ang application ko!

And worth it po lahat ng makulit na tanong ko. Dapat iprepare mo muna talaga lahat documents na kakailangan. Thank you Sir! Almost 2 mos. God bless.. Ang laking tipid nito sa mga kuripot na tulad ko.. Yes Sir no worries! God bless Sir! If its not much of a bother can I ask help I am unable to download the form. I tried seeking a travel agency help but it seems it all boils down to the form. Would really appreciate some help. Hi, finollow ko lang po yung sinabi ni SIr Yoshke open niyo po sa Internet explorer yung site wag po sa Chrome.

Hindi na po talaga kailangan ng travel agency as a first timer na gaya ko basta lahat po ng documents na kailangan niyo iready niyo po pwede niyo naman po balik balikan ang GC key Acct para sa pag complete ng mga documents na kailangan. Iba iba po kasi ang hihingin na documents sa laha ng applicant depende po kung paano niyo sasagutin mga questions nila.

Like kung may kamag anak ka na nag invite may iba ibang documents sila kukunin. Where does my letter of explanation go? And is that the same as the cover letter? When I applied, there was a separate field where I could upload the Explanation Letter. If your checklist has it, then upload there.

If none, you can include it in your Purpose of Travel file. While staying there, I would like to visit too the relatives of my husband in Toronto , Canada, Could I possibly apply for a Canadian Tourist Visa since it is only 6 hrs travel to Toronto, Canada from U. Good day! Di ko alam if pwede ung deed of donation. Di ko rin alam if oks lang ang travel insurance. Feeling ko okay lang naman, although hindi ako nag-submit nun. Pwede ka kumuha from Pacific Cross. Mas nagiging complicated kasi pag meron pang nag-invite.

Ok po.. Hi Dawn, hmmm, yung saken kasi 1 page lang so di ko sure kung ano ung laman ng ibang pages nung sayo.

Travel Requirements

Pero isend mo na lang lahat. I am planning to apply for a Canadian tourist visa. Would the salary matter a lot in the application? I have a relative who is a permanent resident in Canda, btw. The long answer is, it matters pero depende talaga yan sa maraming factors. Combination yan ng finances, rootedness and employment. If mababa ang sweldo pero strong ang rootedness, pwede pa rin maapprove. If malaki ang sweldo pero mahina ang rootedness, pwede pa ring madeny. Hi po, sana matulungan niyo ako. Enjoy Canada! Sayang 2 years lang yung validity ng sayo. I applied when my passport was renewed nung June Luckily, I was approved till No plans of visiting Canada pa talaga.

I just applied for the visa since till the end of the Passport validity naman. Anyway, I ended up visiting Toronto for a week. Just finished my trip as of this writing.

FILIPINOS IN CANADA - Perfect Immigrants?

Enjoy Toronto! I submitted my application yesterday but I have not received any email until now. You mentioned on this blog that after a few hours an email will be sent with regards to the application. Is this normal? Thanks for this. I see that the title is for Do we need to apply for a Biometric or something?

Hi Robert, not everyone. They will tell you in a letter if you need to or not. Bakit di na lang po yung totoong plan nyo ang isubmit nyo? May problem po ba sa totoong itinerary nyo? Hello, My Aunt in Canada sent me an invitation for 6mos visit. She will sponsor all the expenses during my stay. Can I apply for 3 mos visit visa kahit naka-indicate sa invitation that she will accommodate me for 6mos.? Also, do i have to make itineraries for that long visit? Is it required? Hi Dane, baka makalito ung 6 months na nasa invitation letter tapos 3 months ung applyan.

Iwasan mo na lang yung mga inconsistencies kasi red flag yung ganyan. Thanks sir, additional concern po. Ano po ang magiging effect nun sa visa application? May I know if it is important that the documents esp. May tanong po ako, mag travel na po kasi ako sa March papunta ng canada. Ano po mga kailangan ko ipakita sa phil. Ang ETA is only for visa-exempt foreign nationals po diba?

Pa help naman po sir! Thank you and God bless. Hi, bukod sa visa, make sure you have return ticket and proof of accommodation. If invited ka ng someone in Canada, get a letter of invitation.

MORE TIPS:

Thank you po! Pero siguro po mas okay nalang na dito nako sa Singapore mag exit? SInce dito naman po ako nagwowork? Sa tingin niyo po ba Sir? Sir, one more thing. Mag papa approve po kasi ako ng bagong leave form since na move yung pag punta ko sa canada due to late approval nadin po na natanggap ko sa canada. Saan ko po kaya pwede i address yung Certification ko Sir? Last nalang Sir. Thank you po in advance. Magtravel na po kasi ako ng End of March. Learned a lot from this blog. My brother and I applied visitor visa and got approved after 13 days processing.

Thank you so much for posting useful information. More power to you and God bless! I am on the process of applying a canadian visitor visa. All I got was the list of forms and supporting documents needed. No upload button on the right side. Can you help me regarding this matter? Thanks you! Hello po. This is very helpful and I followed the instructions.

I submitted it yesterday and now I received a letter that I need to have my fingerprint scanned and photograph taken. It says I only have 30days to comply. Do I need to go to Manila to do that? Hi Belle, yes, I think so. Hope this helps! Where did you view this post? What browser? Thanks for the big help. It really really made everything easier. From start to finish, this was my guide. Submitted my online application Jan 8, … got biometrics request and additional info Jan 9. Thats Thursday afternoon. Feb 1, Friday morning submit agad … And today, got 3 updates… checked my cic account, its multiple entry, valid till mar !!!!

Maraming salamat tlga… btw, been following your blogs way way back then pa…yun mga DIY local tours!!! God bless you more and more power!! You can email the screenshot to yoshke thepoortraveler. It will be a huge help top others. Hi po, I have a friend from Canada, hes 74 years old, and weve been trying to get my tourist visa. Nadeny ung application last due to my no travel history, current employment COE , and Purpose of stay since they didnt really helped us at all how to create one.

Now we just applied again, and Im still unemployed, but a freelancer low income.. Nagbigay na rin ako ng biometrics. Then ung travel po and everything will be sponsored by my friend literal friend. Hes been helping me every month and he treats me like a daughter. U think ok naman po ung application ko? Or will they ask for more? I also sent my bank cert and monthly statement.

Hi Chinny, malaking bagay yung employment. If freelancer ka, nakapagbigay ka ba ng proof of income? And yes po, naex plain naman ng maayos. Warn lang din kita na baka mahirapan ka rin sa Immigration nyan ha. Pero hintay mo muna yung visa result before mo asikasuhin yung for immigration.

Pero heads up lang. Medyo unusual kasi yung situation mo so they might take a closer look. Make sure you have all the documents needed like affidavit of support and proof of relationship photos, etc. Hi po, I was denied last dahil sa agency na pinag applyan ko, 3 days lang binalik na agad ung application and was denied! Hndi nla ako tinulungan kung anong requirements dapat and all, as long as nakabayad na ako nun, wla na. I got denied due to this 3 reasons: 1. Purpose of stay since ndi ako tinulungan ng agency ko how to create one and it was very short 2.

Travel history 3. Current employment COE Then now po, i applied again, may travel history na ako sa Hongkong ok lng po ba un if isa pa lng travel history ko? Tanong ko lng po, ok lng po ba ung req. Syempre titingnan pa rin nila yung bawat document. Malaking factor din yung employment.

If unemployed ka sa ngayon, tatagilid ka sa rootedness, which is something na kino-consider talaga nila. Hi po. Hi PJ, di ko po alam kung makakaapekto yun, pero kung ako yung nasa posisyon nyo, ganun din po gagawin ko, i-eexplain ko na lang sa letter. Hi sir! Ask ko lang po if okay lang ba na different ang of days naka indicate sa invitation letter and sa application letter ko? Ginawa ko nalang 8 days na matatama ang date to the birthdate of my husband. Second question, do I need to put a cover letter?

Where ko siya i-uupload? If I were in your shoes, okay lang yun since shorter ung nasa application form and within the dates na indicated sa invitation letter. When I applied, there was a separate section for Letter of Explanation. Not sure if they still have it now. You can also download here Thank you!!! Thank you, good Sir, for such an in-depth how-to! Just a quick question: When I applied, I indicated a seven-day trip.

Now that the embassy gave its green light, do you think a three-day or four-day extension will be an issue? However, I noticed there is a biometrics portion already and the form is quite different. When do we schedule the Biometrics appointment for her? Can I apply and submit online for her? The one who got the visa approved last year was thru a lawyer in Canada but we want to do it personally this time since their rate is quite expensive.

After you submit your application, you will receive an email with instructions on how to submit biometrics. But you can create an account under her name and just guide her through the whole process. Dear Applicant, This letter refers to your application for temporary residence. On December 31st, , biometrics fingerprints and a photograph became a requirement for some IRCC applicants.

Your application was received on or after December 31st, After a summary review of your application, it was determined that this requirement applies to you. Select the fee that applies to your application. Note: You only need to pay biometric fees at this time. When your payment is received, you will receive further instructions within 24 hours on when and how to give your biometrics.

My question is how did you do step 6? I could not figure out where to upload in both options. Thank you for the help. I just want to ask if need pa magschedule sa VFS kapag magsubmit ng passport personally sa office nila sa Makati? I received a message na po kasi regarding Original Passport Request. Thanks po :. Waaah oo nga pala, nag-walk in lang din ako.

Nacoconfuse ko na ung passport submission and biometrics submission. Thank you so much for this post. I have shared it to friends who are also applying for a visa like myself to attend a conference in Vancouver. I turned in my application last Friday, Feb. Fingers and toes crossed, that my application is successful. Keep on travelling and keep on telling your story. We will be accompanied by my sister living in the US for a 4-day trip in Toronto.

I have a few questions regarding our application. Thus, I need to apply for both of them and make separate CIC accounts , correct? Do you still recommend to include one in my submission of documents? For the proof of financial support, my Father is already retired thus no more source of income and my niece is still a student. Can I just upload a sponsorship letter from my sister living in the US , stating she will cover their expenses in Canada? What I suggest is that you post this on The Poor Traveler Support Group on Facebook because maybe some of our members have experienced it.

Hi Mr. Yoshke, thanks for the prompt response! Hi Sir! We have the same situation. My sister who is a resident in PA, USA naman ang kasama ng reried mother ko pa Canada pero we have relatives kasi sa Canada so ang hiningi ko is invitation letter from them, sa case niyo since hindi kayo magstay sa kanila just provide a hotel reservation siguro plus the invitation letter. Then for the proof of financial resouce of supporter ganun din ginawa ko, letter and supporting docs from my sister in USA. It does not refer to the ones who are already in Canada? Thanks for attention. Which is better for the application submission, should I do it online or in person?

Because online, you can create an account for them and work with them through the whole process. Hello, sobrang thank you po sa blog na to super detailed, sobrang bilis intindihan. Ask ko lang po kasi nirequesy ako ng biometrics pinapaiwan po ba passport kasi kasi may trip din ako for a week.

Or better pagbalik ko nalang po..? Hi Maya, ang alam ko, pag biometrics pa lang, hindi pa yun ipapaiwan. Dun lang sya hihingin pag passport submission na. Hi Mam! Hindi pa po iniiwan passport for biometrics but you need to have an appointment. For Passport submission naman, upon receipt of letter you have 30 days to accomplish it.
