CANADA WRITES NIGERIA, EXPLAINS THE CONDITION REFUGEE APPLICATIONS CANT’ BE GRANTED
Canadian government has written Nigeria over immigration programs and conditions for accepting refugee applications.
The message in the letter was made public on Canada in Nigeria, @CanHCNigeria Twitter thread.
The letter reads, “Canada works with the United Nations Refugee Agency (UNHCR), other designated referral organizations and private sponsors to identify individuals in need of resettlement, and who are outside their home country.”
“You cannot apply directly for resettlement. You must be referred to Canada by a designated referral organization or a private sponsor.”
“Don’t be fooled by rumours or false information online.”
“No one can guarantee that your immigration application will be fast-tracked or approved. Only a Canadian migration officer can decide if you can come to Canada.”
“All the information you need to apply to visit or immigrate to Canada is available free on the official Government of Canada website: cic.gc.ca .”
“For information about other immigration programs you might be eligible for, use the Come to Canada tool: Canada.ca/come-to-canada .”
