Nicaraguan Citizen visiting Canada - requirements
Some extended family's - family - wants to come to Canada for a fairly serious event (Mother attending bedside for open heart surgery of her son)
Surprise surprise, the initial request for visa was denied with the following statements.
1) Not providing proof of sufficient funds and assets to support themselves on the visit and ensure their return.
2) Not providing sufficient information on the support for them while in Canada (e.g. the hosting family)
For point #1 - Has any one had experience for what the magic number is for being able to support yourself and to prove it?
Guess - $5000 in the bank and a Credit card of the same value with both notarized.. They did supply a "deed" for some land they hold but the deed does not show any value
For point #2 - Anyone know what the host family has to prove WRT assets?
Guess that the tax returns from the past 2 yrs and some sort of bank statement.
Any one had recent experience with Canadian immigration on this?
We did about 8 yrs ago and the person was technically better off than this applicant, but we / She was denied back then... I hold out little hope for this Mother to get up here to see her Son.
