It is crucial that in complicated cases where it is not clear whether or not you may qualify, we complete a detailed assessment of your circumstances by way of a consultation in order to consider your options and provide you with an informed opinion as to your prospects of being successful before proceeding with a full application service.

      If you do not wish to engage a legal representative to prepare and submit your application, but have a number of questions to ask about your specific circumstances, or would like to discuss a number of specific documents, then a personal consultation may be the best option for you.

      In certain circumstances we may be able to offer an Application Checking Service to help reduce the risk of refusal or a common scenario of an application being returned as incomplete.

      Having your application checked by Registered Canadian Immigration Consultant prior to submission usually eliminates unnecessary mistakes and omissions whilst helping to identify more serious issues or possible refusal. Normally if your application is rejected you will forfeit your IRCC processing fees. If your application is not likely to be accepted (i.e. not meeting the basic criteria for the immigration class you are applying under) it is much better to know in advance.

      If you have made an omission, however minor, this will normally result in your application being returned which effectively means you have wasted several months and have to resubmit your application and end up at the back of the queue!

      Omissions and minor errors are common because as it isn’t always easy to understand what the questions on the application forms mean or to decipher the often conflicting and outdated information available on the internet.

      What this service includes:

      Your completed application will be reviewed and scrutinised by Balvinder Pahl a Registered Canadian Immigration Consultant with 15 years of experience in managing Canadian visa applications.

      We will list any items that need to be corrected and provide instructions on what changes or additions you should make to both your application forms and supporting documents.

      Where necessary we will provide a further review of the corrected application before you submit your application

      What this service does NOT include:

      We will not make changes to your application forms or prepare any of your application – we will only review what you have prepared and advise you on what needs to be corrected.

      We will not become your appointed representatives or deal with the Canadian immigration authorities on your behalf.

      We will not review a partly completed application.
