Why a family of four was deported from Canada on arrival
They were asked if they would stay permanently if they found a job during the visit, and they answered in the affirmative.
The family was told by the agent who did the visa for them that even at the point of entry, they could change their visitor visa to a work permit.
Adaeze said this response necessitated their deportation. The immigration officials understood it to mean they were entering Canada on a visit but without the aim of returning to their country.
When contacted, Ahmodu Akinwale, a travel agent and visa expert based in Ibadan said the family's statement of intent to stay despite possessing a visit visa necessitated their deportation.

Ahmodu, who works with the Modian Consulting Firm, Ibadan, told Legit.ng:
"It's unfortunate that the family was not properly educated on their class of visa. As holders of Canadian visit visa, they are expected to come to Canada for a short stay, and return to their home country within the short period.
"The intent of returning to home country must have been evidenced by the provision of some documents by the "agent" or whoever assisted the family with the application for a visit visa to Canada.
"However, the declaration to the immigration authority by the family that they would like to stay permanently if they get a job sharply negates the intent to return to home country, hence the deportation."
