|| What Are My Options? Refusal Letter or Email and How to Appeal ||

Every refusal letter or email from IRCC, comes with untold frustration to the applicants. It is important to know what your options are and if you have the option to appeal a refusal.

The Covid-19 pandemic caused many countries to close their borders and Canada was not exempted. Non-essential travel was stopped and anyone who applied during the pandemic might have been subjected to a refusal or no response due to backlogs of immigration applications. The Canadian Government under certain structures have opened its borders to accepting International students, foreign workers, permanent residents, and citizens.

|| Why Did My Canadian Immigration Application Get Refused? ||

Immigration officers review all submitted immigration application and have the full discretion to approve or deny the application, using specific guidelines to make decisions on immigration cases. Applications that do not meet the  standards and criteria set out in the Immigration Regulations and Manuals, most often result in a refusal. However, there are times that these Canadian immigration officers make mistakes in their decisions, usually when they may fail to review all documents and information in the application or in their interpretation of the guidelines  information in an application. If an officer has questions regarding your application, you might be invited for a personal interview.  It is important to take note of the reason for the refusal. It is even more important to respond very quickly once the refusal notification gets to you. Your best shot in dealing with these kind of situations is to seek out a licensed, qualified and experienced Canadian immigration professional. An Immigration appeal should be considered only after understanding the case’s merit.
