If you are looking for a way to travel to Canada, then you need to read this article to know the documents you would be needing to process your Visa. Below are some of the important things you would need to leave Nigeria and move to Canada.
(1): If You’ve Had COVID-19 In The Past Year.
If you’ve had COVID-19 within the past years or if you’ve recovered from COVID-2019, you still need at least two doses of an approved COVID-2019 vaccine, a mixture of two approved vaccines, or one dose of the Johnson & Johnsons vaccine to enter Canada for non-essential (discretionary) reasons. If you’ve only had one dose of another vaccine other than Janssens (Johnson & Johnson), then you do not meet the full vaccination requirement.
Children aged 12 to 16 years old must follow the rules for travelers requiring vaccination before entry into Canada. Unvaccinated or partially vaccinated children aged 12 years old and over must be quarantined for a period of 14 days after entering Canada unless they meet one of three criteria:
- 1) They have a medical contraindication against receiving a COVID-19 vaccination.
- They were born after 4/11/2020 (the date the World Health Organization declared COVID-19 a pandemic); and
- They traveled to an area where no case has been reported within the last 14 days.
Unvaccinated asymptomatic travelers aged 12 years old and older are not required to quarantine if they meet the following conditions:
- They show symptoms consistent with COVID-19; and
- They are traveling with at least one traveler who meets the abovementioned requirements.
(2): Your Passport
All passports currently valid and all previously issued passport copies must be intact and scanned. Scan the below-mentioned pages preferably using your mobile phone application or a laptop/desktop computer at home:
- Front page showing your photo.
- Last page showing your address.
- All entries into your passport (including visas).
- Any exit stamps from countries visited.
In order to get your passport ready for travel, please visit the nearest Canadian Embassy or Consulate in person. We’ll also email you an application form if you’d like one. You can download the application form (PDF).
(3): Current Details Of Employment
A letter from your employer on the company letterhead, with the contact details, stating that the leave of absence has been approved, the purpose and duration of the travel, and that you will return to your current position.
(4): Current Bank Statement

(6): Current Country Valid Status
You must show proof of your current visa if you’re applying for a visa extension or change of status within Canada. For example, if you’re currently overseas on a work visa (e.g., H1B) and apply for a permanent resident card (PRC), you’ll need to submit your current visa document(s). In addition, we may ask for references or proof to support your claim that you’ve lived in Canada continuously for six months prior to your application.
Valid status can be considered a legal term used in immigration law. It means that you have the right to work in a given country. You do not need any special permission from the government of the country. For example, if you are living in Canada and planning to travel to India then you must obtain a valid status as per Immigration Law.
