Our Goal

We know these days, Canadian and U.S. governments have created complicated barriers to entry. Immigration rules and regulations are becoming more and more complex. In order to qualify to relocate to Canada or to the U.S., you must present your case properly to an immigration officer who has the authority to grant or deny your admission.

We have made it our primary goal to assist you towards getting your visa to Canada or to the U.S. And if you are facing removal, we are here to help you resolve your immigration problems.  Our job is to help open the door so that you, your relative, friend or employee can live, work or study in Canada or the US.

VisaPlace knew exactly what kind of legal team could help where other's couldn't. The fees were reasonable and everything went smoothly. Thank you for everything! I would highly recommend VisaPlace and the immigration attorneys they work with to anyone wishing to move to Canada or to the US."
