Immigration Consulting Service
Canada is one of the most popular countries to immigrate. Renown for its stable economy, best education system, multiculturalism and diversity, Canada has welcomed over 300,000 immigrants per year in the past few years.
Although many of the Canadian visa application process are straight forward, some are much more complex and requires up-to-date, in-depth knowledge of the immigration system. This can be quite an overwhelming and time consuming procedure, especially for non-English speakers. That is where a professional immigration consultant comes in.
Who are immigration consultants?
Simply put, an immigration consultant is a qualified professional who supports all immigration matters. Immigration consultants possess a wide range of knowledge on immigration laws and visa applications, and make sure your application is full-proof before submission.
To become a certified immigration consultant, one must pass the examimation accredited by The Immigration Consultants of Canada Regulatory Council (ICCRC) and continue to update knowledge relating to immigration.
There are currently more than 60 different visa categories in Canada, and regulations are revised on a weekly basis. A regulated immigration consultant will guide you through this complex and rapidly changing immigration system, and increase your chance of successfully immigrating to Canada.
What are the benefits of immigration consultants?
Hiring an immigration consultant is not a prerequisite to apply for immigration. However, there are genuine reasons why choosing to do so will make your immigration process much easier and quicker.
Thorough and up-to-date knowledge
One of the most important benefits for seeking immigration consultancy is that they have abundant knowledge of all the immigration options available to you. Every applicant is unique, and not all applicants qualify for the most common or simplest immigration programs.
Consultants have extensive experience from past cases, and taken together with the current laws, they can guide you through the newest 60+ immigration programs so you understand what options are available, and ensure you qualify for the program you choose to apply for.
Save time and money
Immigration consultants can also save your time and money. Just because you are applying for a simple immigration category, doesn’t mean the application process will be simple either. No immigration application is easy.
Slightest errors in your document can end up in instant rejection or processing delay, or even worse, penalties that will deter you from entering the country. Experts know where common mistakes occur and are familiar with filling out complex paperwork. Your documents will be ensured that they are consistent and accurate to avoid delay, and to save valuable time.
Navigate throughout the entire immigration process
A professional immigration consultant will navigate you through the immigration process right from the first consultation and review every information to ensure you fulfill all the requirements.
Even after the application is submitted, the immigration consultant may continue to track the application status, and assist you with any correspondence you receive from the government. They will be ready to handle any error that occurs or question that arises and prevent your application from being refused.
Work with other agencies and employers on your behalf
Some visa applications require documents from your employer. As experts, immigration consultants can contact and advise these employers to provide specific documents.
Furthermore, they liaise with government agencies such as the Government of Canada, provincial and territorial governments, Department of Labour, and Department of Immigration and Citizenship Services on behalf of you or the employers.
