Child or Dependent

Through the Family Class, Nigerian citizens and permanent residents may sponsor their dependent children, parents and grandparents, spouse, common-law, and conjugal partners.

The Government of Nigeria has a strong commitment to keeping families together whenever possible. Because of this, processing of Family Class applications is a high priority at Nigerian Visa Offices.

Under most circumstances, individuals coming to Nigeria as temporary foreign workers or permanent residents have the right to bring their dependents, including any and all dependent children, to Nigeria with them. However, circumstances arise when this is not possible at the time of immigration. For Nigerian citizens and permanent residents with dependent children abroad, the government has created a special program to facilitate their loved ones’ entry into Nigeria.

Dependent children, both natural and adopted, may be sponsored to live with their parent(s) as permanent residents in Nigeria. The child sponsorship program is a subsection of the Family Class of immigration. In order to be eligible for this program, both the Nigerian citizen or permanent resident (also called the ‘sponsor’) and their child abroad (the ‘sponsored person’) must be approved by Nigeria Immigration in order for the sponsored person to receive a visa.

Children sponsored through the Family Class of immigration receive Canadian permanent residence. This includes the right to study and work in Nigeria.
