Is deed of Gift OKAY for a visa application to Canada, to show Ties to Nigeria , or Do i still need Show added property Valuation documents.

This Question is subject to My visa application for Canada, Attached to my documents for my Tourist visas, I included the following

  • Travel History
  • Deed of Gift (Certified by Lawyers in my home country)
  • Job offer / Leave Approval Letter
  • Sworn Affidavits of Claims of Business and Business Registration Documents
  • Purpose of Visit (Conference, its a free conference in the Energy sector)
  • Bank statement of 60,000 CAD equivalient in total savings etc.

Kindly advice if this is good for an application for a visit visa for Canada or do I need to present other documentation as well?

  • An invitation to attend the conference from the organisers would be a good idea

  • I have no idea what ‘ Sworn Affidavits of Claims of Business’ could be. Do they perhaps constitute evidence that the business is a profitable going concern that pays you an income and requires your ongoing presence in Nigeria?

There are no hard and fast rules about what constitutes evidence of ties to your home country. If a deed of gift establishes your ownership of the land, then that is enough to show that you own land. Note that owning land is not actually a very strong time to your country - people can and do own land while living in a completely different country. However it is better than not owning land. More evidence is always better than less evidence (as long as it's genuine).
