When A Canadian Visa Application is Denied

Despite the fact that thousands of hopefuls apply for Canadian visas every single year, many of these people are severely disappointed when their application is denied. Canadian visa applications are denied all of the time, and for many different reasons. The applicant may not have been qualified for the type of immigration path they chose, there may have been something wrong with their supporting documents, the applicant may have left something out when filling out their application or, in some cases, the visa officer made a mistake. immigration application help

No matter what the reason for the denial of your Canadian visa application, you may benefit significantly from speaking with a licensed immigration lawyer. Not only can they help you quickly understand if you are eligible to appeal, they can also guide you through the appeals process which is very difficult and complex.

Options to appealing a Canadian Visa application denial

Someone who has received notice that their Canadian visa application has been denied could be entitled to appeal the decision. This can be done one of two ways, either by appealing to the Federal Court of Canada or by appealing at the Immigration Adjudication Division. Coincidentally, an appeal that fails at the Immigration Adjudication Division can be tried at the Federal Court of Canada.

One can also make a request to have their application restored to the Case Processing Centre for an additional review.
