Easiest way to Relocate to Canada from Nigeria

1. Check your Eligibility

Before you go forward with your plans to move to Canada, you should check your eligibility. You may not be allowed to immigrate for one of many reasons. These reasons include:

i. human or international rights violations

ii. criminal record

iii. health

iv. financial reasons

v. misrepresentation

vi. non-compliance with IRPA (Immigration Refugee Protection Act)

vii. having an inadmissible family member

 2. Gather Important Documents before you Move

When you move, you will need to have certain official documents with you in order to gain entry to Canada. You’ll need:

a. A Canadian immigrant visa and Confirmation of Permanent Residence for each family member traveling with you

b. A valid passport or other travel documents for each family member traveling with you

c. Two (2) copies of a detailed list of all the personal or household items you are bringing with you

d. Two (2) copies of a list of items that are arriving later and their money value.


3. Complete the Appropriate Application

Choose the application that is most relevant to your situation to apply for your visa.

For example, if you are self-employed and planning to move to Canada, then you would need to fill out a different application than someone who is planning to move to Canada as a caregiver for someone else.

i. Skilled workers can complete an Express Entry profile online if they want to speed up moving to Canada.

This profile includes information about yourself, your language skills, and your credentials. After you complete your Express Entry profile, you will also need to register with the Government of Canada’s Job Bank (unless you already have a job offer).

ii. If you are applying for a self-employed, start-up visa, Quebec-selected skilled worker, family-sponsored visa, or a provincial visa, then you will have to mail in your application.

4. Pay the Application Fee

The application fees can be quite high, especially if you will request entry for a spouse and other dependents as well. For example, the application fee for an Express Entry application for an individual would be $550 Canadian dollars.

However, if you are bringing a husband or wife and child as well, then the total application fee would be $1,250 Canadian dollars.

Make sure that you pay your application fee in full or your application may not be processed.


5. Wait for your Visa to Arrive

Keep in mind that it can take a while to get a response to your application. Even if you apply using the Express Entry form, you may have to wait for up to six months to get a response.

Therefore, make sure that you apply as soon as you know that you want to move to Canada. Don’t wait until a month or a week before you want to go. Get the application in right away.

If your application is denied, then you will have to reapply and you should only do so if your situation changes in a significant way. You cannot appeal the decision.

6. Purchase Private Health Insurance

Although Canada offers free health insurance to residents and citizens, you will need to purchase private health insurance to ensure coverage for up to three months after you first arrive in Canada.

The providers will vary depending on your province.

If you are a refugee coming to Canada, then you may be protected by the Interim Federal Health Program (IFHP) and no need to purchase private insurance.
