How I became a Canadian citizen on July 1, 2016, on Canada Day

immigrant-refugee-program“I was looking for a quality immigration lawyer for some time, to help me with my application for renewal of Permanent Residency and Citizenship Application. I had a unique case due to my professional obligations outside the country. Although I knew most of the immigration rules and thought to do it myself but came to know during the preparation process that it is going to be not easy to present the case myself although I am presenting 110% verifiable facts.

I was referred by a friend of mine to the team of Niren and Associates (Visa Place)saying this team is well respected in this profession, particularly with Canadian Immigration department due high ethical and professional values. I was looking for exactly the same type of people to represent me.

Starting from my first meeting I started to feel to be supported and guided in the right direction to prepare the information to present my applications, particularly my citizenship application. I was helped by young but well qualified and experienced person Ms. Zahra Fadhlaoui. I found Ms. Fadhlaoui not only a strong professional but very caring and respectful which helped me to my trust in the team.

I strongly believe that it is due to presentation of facts by the quality lawyer which resulted in my residency renewal processed only in three months period which usually takes way more than three months.

In respect to my citizenship application, I was expecting it to take over two years but the actual results were way better than my expectations. Although my case was not a straightforward, I was called for the citizenship test within 8 months and the final decision i.e. call for Citizenship Oath taking was received within three minutes from the test and that too ON JULY 1 THE CANADA DAY. This was an honor for me and I will never be able to forget this moment i.e. becoming Canadian citizen on the Canada Day which happens rarely.

In short and honestly it was the professional touch of the qualified team of the Niren and Associates which made my application to be successful in such a respectable manner.

I will have no hesitation t recommend the firm, particularly the people who helped me in this process among them Ms. Zahra Falloundi is on the top of the list”—Saeed A
