Denied Visa

Denied Visa

Canada is the most sought country amongst people across the globe interested in migrating to Canada to fulfil their dreams. It is because of its popularity that the visa process is stringent and may result a denial to the applied visa in case if the information that was submitted at the time of application was not satisfactory as per the requirements.

If the embassy refuses an application to come to Canada, re-application can be done again at any time, unless thedecision letter specifically restricts the eligibility for re-application. An applicant can only apply again if the applicant can include information that was not included in earlier application.

Below is a non-exhaustive list of reasons for visa denial:

  • Failure to meet international security standards
  • Misrepresentation of facts
  • Non-disclosure of criminal background
  • Lack of adequate documentation
  • Lack of financial viability to sustain in Canada
  • Non submission of records of medical examination
  • The visa officer has reservations regarding the purpose of the applicant or his application or
  • Lack of explanation or evidence to support the basic purpose of visa application

If your application was refused, applying again with the same information, even with an immigration or travel agent, will not change this decision.

It is also a good idea to consider your eligibility for an appeal (as every case is different), either with the IAD or the Federal Court of Canada; however, that this appeal is only valid within a specific period of time and should be acted on urgently. If this applies to your case, it may be a good idea to enlist the help of a lawyer who specializes in Canadian visa applications in order to increase your chances of getting approved.
