The Process

Immigration ProcessThe process passes through a number of stages. Broadly, here is an outline of the steps:

Step 1. Once clients decide to retain our services, we jointly agree and sign off on a Retainer Agreement. The agreement consists, very broadly, of our mutual obligations to each other towards meeting the client’s objective, the scope of work we commit to and the fee and disbursements that would apply for acting on the client’s behalf.

Step 2. Immediately after, we ship out a package to the client containing immigration forms along with a guidance letter and a checklist of other supporting documents, together with formats for affidavits required from the client for the preparation of the case.

Step 3. Entails a diligent review and scrutiny of the client’s application and developing a submission strategy to best ‘market’ your profile.

Step 4. Launch the application process on your behalf. This stage entails the following sub-processes/documentation:

  • Preparing and submitting a comprehensive submission report to the Immigration Officers at Citizenship and Immigration Canada to emphasize why your application should be considered favourably. The submission would also make a compelling argument for the officer to exercise his discretion in your favour should your situation be borderline.  The Canada Visa Office will acknowledge receipt of the Canada Immigration Application and may request more documents.
  • Our submissions are based on the immigration legislative and regulatory frameworks and are developed solely to indicate to the visa officer as to how our client meets / or would meet the requirements for permanent resident status. Selection Criteria factors are then translated per requirements in a way that best matches the client’s qualifications and prior experience to the available immigration programs /streams based on the eligibility factors and occupational classifications. What this does is to assure best point scores thereby optimizing success. We cannot underscore enough the contribution of the submission report towards the success of an application.
  • If relevant, we will attach a copy of our Assessment of your Skills and Qualifications outlining to Citizenship and Immigration Canada the number of points you scored and the reasons why you should be accepted as a Landed Immigrant.
  • Provide expert counselling on documentation of application and supporting information together with scrutinizing and itemizing all the required documents with appropriate translations wherever required. We may, as we often do, request you for supplementary documents and submit them to strengthen your case.
  • Ensure that we submit your application to the processing center in a time efficient manner.
  • Advise you of the correct Landing Fee and the Processing Fee’s and ensure the same is properly completed and enclosed. Ensure that the photographs submitted are of correct size as specified by Citizenship and Immigration Canada.
  • Direct you to the accredited Language Testing institutions per immigration eligibility requirements.

Step 5. After you application is ‘locked-in’, we track the status of the approvals process and remain prepared to expeditiously respond to and address, on your behalf, any Citizenship and Immigration Canada questions/ clarifications. We will represent your best interests when communicating and monitoring your application with Immigration Officers as and when required.

Step 6. Intimation from Citizenship and Immigration Canada about your interview triggers this step in the process. At this time, we shall:

  • Keep you informed about your interview dates and other pertinent information
  • Invite you over for interview guidance. Visa Officers, by law, are authorized to make the final decision and issue immigration visas. In the exercise of their authority, they are required to determine and validate:
    • your eligibility for the specific immigration program;
    • Your ability and your readiness for successfully establishing in Canada;
    • transferability of your educational qualification/skills/ training to the Canadian Job market/business environment;
    • results from professional bodies and/or educational institutions in Canada;
    • The shortfall in your qualifications, skills and training as per the Canadian standards and your efforts to overcome them;
    • Licensing and registration requirements for working in your profession in Canada;
    • Your knowledge about job market in Canada;
    • Whether or not you are resourceful, motivated and adaptable and if you have taken the initiative to ensure successful establishment in Canada; and,
    • If you are a Business category applicant, preparation for an exploratory visit to Canada. We prepare our clients thoroughly for the interview with the Immigration authorities, since we have complete knowledge about the subject.

Step 7. Citizenship and Immigration Canada’s green light to take the Medical Examination usually signifies an ‘approval in principle’, pending the result of the examination and background/security checks. We work with you to provide all relevant information and next steps.

Step 8. Upon receipt of your visa/landing papers, we assist you with complying with the conditions of landing imposed on your landing papers and visas. The immigrant visa will bear an expiration date and the client must arrive in Canada prior to the expiration date to become landed.  We are always available to answer your questions or address your concerns both during and after the immigration process. However, should the application be refused, we will work with you to appeal the refusal at the appropriate level.

Our goal is to provide each client with a successful outcome by determining the most appropriate solution. If you would like to know whether you could be eligible to immigrate to Canada, we invite you to complete our online assessment questionnaire.

VISITOR VISA: Hello Ramesh, I applied for my mother's visit Visa online on my own. However, due to some shortcomings in my application it got rejected without possibility of a follow up. I got disappointed as it is going to be my mother's first ever visit in 25 years to my home and I could not get the visa approved. Having left with no ideas, I contacted you. You took time to explain me with the requirements and procedures to obtain the visa. You also helped me with all required documents in right format and advised me on other necessary attachments to be submitted with my application. It proved so invaluable for me as the visa got approved right away, and that too for 10 years multiple entry. I strongly recommend any one your services and Advenure Immigration for all their immigration and visa needs.
