How to Appeal Against a Canadian Visa Refusal

If you’ve received notification of a Canadian visa refusal from Citizenship and Immigration Canada, it can be extremely distressing. Note that you do have options when it comes to appealing a Canadian visa refusal, however time is not on your side. You may only have a very short window of time in which to appeal your Canadian visa refusal, even as little as 30 days.

What are the ways to appeal a Canadian visa refusal?

The appeal options for a Canadian visa refusal are:

  • Making a request for restoration to the Case Processing Centre or CPC.
  • Appealing your Canadian visa refusal to the Immigration Adjudication Division, or IAD.
  • Appealing your Canadian visa refusal to the Federal Court of Canada.

Which option is right for me?

Which option for appealing against a Canadian visa refusal is right for you depends on many things, including what type of visa application it was. Did you apply for permanent residency, or did you apply for a Canadian visitor visa or study visa? Different avenues of appeal are better suited for different types of visas and personal circumstances.

You may only have as few as thirty days to appeal your Canadian visa refusal. This is a very short deadline and you must act quickly.

Appealing a Canadian visa refusal is an extremely complicated and delicate process. You will have to effectively demonstrate why your application should not have been denied and why you deserve a second chance. A licensed immigration lawyer can be your biggest asset and advantage during an appeal against a Canadian visa refusal! Contact our immigration law firm using the form on the right or at the telephone number above for an assessment of your case.

    Hi.
    Thank you so far for all the useful info provided here. I applied to visit my wife in DEC 2016, (we have been married for two years now and are caught up in the eternal wait for a PR application) Today, our visitor TRV application was refused on 1. Travel history, 2. Purpose of visit.
    We have a very strong case to appeal this as my wife is slated for breast cancer surgery in late April which isn’t very far from now. I need to be beside my wife during this surgery and recovery period as there’s no one else that can be by her side. My question is: what is the wait time for an appeal? Do we have to wait another 74 days to get a response from the CIC?? Waiting would totally negate the purpose of my visit.
    Pls reply. We are so very distraught.

    Hi,
    My name is Jeny and i am a canadian citizen. Recently my brother, sister inlaw and nephew applied for TRV( temporary resident visa), but only my brother got visa. They are all from Nepal. The reason for their visa denial is that they don’t have travel history and that they don’t have sufficient funds.Infact my brother and sisterinlaw had travelled to Europe before and they have shown around 50,000 CAD as funds.
    I invited them particularly because i am expecting my baby soon and they will be visiting here for only a month. They have included my pregnancy letter and also the letter from MLA here.Since only my brother got visa i was wondering how can i appeal for my sisterinlaw and nephew.
    Thanks

    Hi,
    Sir i have applied for Canada business visa, but they refused it, they check on only two reasons, please read two reason below they checked cross (X) on them, and write me back is is good for me to appeal for visa?
    Also my sponsor was a club holder not a shop holder is this a cause of refusal?
    1. You have not satisfied me that you would leave Canada at the end of your stay as a temporary resident. In reaching this decision, i consider several factors, including.
    2. Having a legitimate business purpose in Canada.

    I got accepted by a reputed university. I will have to apply for a study permit from Bangladesh. My problem is I have an 8 year old daughter and I want to take her with me. Everybody is saying that applying for my daughter’s visa along with my one will decrease the chances of getting the study permit. Can anyone provide me any good suggestion?

    I got refusal and i didnt understand the reasons::
    Thank you for your interest in studying in Canada. After a careful review of your study permit application and
    supporting documentation, I have determined that your application does not meet the requirements of the
    Immigration and Refugee Protection Act and Regulations. Iam refusing your application.
    In making a decision on an application, a number of factors are considered. These may include but are not
    limited to:
    whether the person has been accepted to study at a Canadian educational institution;
    the information in the travel and identity documents;
    the person’s ability to pay for the trip, to pay tuition fees and to support himself or herself while in
    Canada;
    whether the person is likely to respect the conditions of his or her admission to Canada;
    whether the person is inadmissible to Canada; and
    whether the person would be likely to leave Canada at the end of his/her authorized stay.

      Hello Sunny. A study visa is one of the most difficult to obtain because the reviewing officer needs to make 100% certain that you will return home after your studies are complete.

    To whomever it may concern,

    I have applied to a visitor visa recently and it got rejected.

    The reasons for rejection were:

    1) travel history
    2) immigration status in country of residence
    3) employment prospects in country of residence.

    Im not sure what exactly is required especially for the second and third points. For the first point 1) i beleive I shall give my old passport along with the application as it has all my old visas. For points 2) and 3) I can’t seem to understand the problem. I have attached a proof of my immigration status and letter of employment from the company both of which are issued under the company I am working for. It is an open contract so I still do not understand what is needed. Please help me out and clarify.

Unfortunately, that denial now appears on your permanent record, and must be addressed with every application that you submit from now on. Study visas are one of the most difficult to obtain. Immigration officers need to be 100% certain that you plan on returning home when you studies are completed.

      Hello Marvin. It must be very frustrating when you think that you have completed everything that IRCC has requested, and you still find yourself with a denial. Your situation is not uncommon; we actually see it a lot. The study visa is one of the most complex immigration visas that is because the immigration officer is going to make sure that it is not being used as a means to get into the country and stay. If there is a single mistake or omission in your application, it will be refused. Do not attempt to re-apply on your own. Make an appointment to talk with one of our immigration professionals who will be able to fix the previous denial, and re-apply for a study visit.

    Hello,
    My Canadian study permit application was refused after exactly a month of making an application online through CIC application portal and doing biometrics at a VAC in USA. I made the application in December 2015 and did my biometrics a week after. I was denied on a number of reasons:

    **Insufficient financial resources, without working in Canada, to maintain myself and pay the costs of transporting myself to Canada
    –>despite providing loads of financial documents telling them my parents are my sponsors, providing their pay slips and overall annual salaries plus bank accounts statements.

    ** Travel history
    –>detailed all of the countries I have gone to in my application documents, provided visa seals plus entry/exit stamps.

    ** Family ties in Canada and in country of residence
    –>indicated that I have no family both in Canada and in my present country of residence USA.

    **Length of proposed stay
    –>which I find this to be ridiculous since I am applying for a study permit and a letter of acceptance was given to them indicating start and end dates of the program.

    **Purpose of Visit
    –> obviously I am applying for studies.

    **Employment prospects in country of residence
    –> I am on a visit to the country and I decided to apply for a study permit since it takes long months to process a permit back in my home country.

    **Current employment situation
    –>I told them my employment history with an additional document provided to continue listing.

    **personal assets and financial status
    –> I didn’t provide these because I told them I am being sponsored for education and all stipends and fees will be paid by my sponsor.

    Please advise me on how you could be of help and my chances of getting a study permit after an appeal is made.
    Your urgent response will be very much appreciated. Thank you so much in advance for a prompt response.

      Thank you for taking the time to write to us Seyi. It is very frustrating when you think that you have provided all the information that you think you need, and you get a refusal for your study permit. The study permit is one that most people have the hardest time applying for themselves. The concern of the immigration officer who is reviewing your case, is to make sure that it does not seem that you are using the study visa to come to Canada to either work or stay permanently. We have been helping people successfully apply for study permits for over 18 years. I suggest that you contact us immediately to make an appointment for a consultation with one of our immigration professionals who will be able to get your application back on track. Delays will cause you to lose your window of opportunity with the educational institution that you have acceptance from.

      Thank you for reaching out to us Ibrar. Our experience is that an appeal rarely gives you the result that you want. An appeal will just look at the reasons for the refusal and make sure that they are consistent with the laws. I am guessing that you prepared and submitted your visa application on your own.
      If you are interested in having a professional immigration legal team re-apply for you, making sure that your refusal is addressed, and that a proper application is submitted, then please contact us at 1-855-886-8472, or go to http://www.visaplace.com/bookonline to book a consultation as quickly as possible.

      Thank you for taking the time to write to us Olusola. It must be very frustrating having to deal with the visa rejections when you are trying to help your son come to Canada to further his education.
      The Canadian immigration system can be very difficult to navigate at times. For even the smallest error or omission in the application, the immigration officer will refuse the request.
      Our law firm has been helping people with immigration issues for the past 18 years. We handle thousands of Study Visas, with tremendous success.
      One of our immigration staff will be in contact with you shortly to see how we can be of assistance to you and your son.

    I have applied three times for a study permit, providing the embassy all the requirements they asked for and even more such as an acceptance letter explains that i am accepted in the college and paid my fees plus a bank statement explains that i will cover my living expenses during my stay till the end of my program.
    how do i appeal or what should i do to be accepted?

    My friend’s restoration TRV was sent back after 3 months because one of the two online payment receipts had mistakenly been used before. So they received $100 instead of $200. Instead of asking for a replacement receipt, they returned the application today and said that it’s too late for another restoration case. Does the friend have any options? Seems really unfair.

    Dear Mr Niren :
    I am writing for a friend whose study visa just got rejected.And the reason by the case officer was the PURPOSE OF VISIT.He wasnt satisfied that my friend would leave Canada at the end of his chosen studies which according to the officer were not compatible with his past qualifications.He is a Plumber back home and got accepted in a HVAC program at a prominent publicly funded Canadian post secondary college. But the visa officer failed to see the connection.
    Can you help us?

    Looking forward to your response.

      Hi Sanat,

      Hello Tolulope,

      Thank you for your inquiry. One of the most common reasons as to why Visas get refused is due to the Travel History…but not many applicants know how to correct this or have a negative decision on a Visa be overturned. You definitely came to the right place for this issue though! Kindly complete this form for me http://www.visaplace.com/immigration-assessment/ as it will give me all the details of your application, and once it has been reviewed, you will be contacted so that we can reapply for you right away!

    I just recently applied for a study permit to Canada so I can finish my master degree in civil engineering, I got an academic acceptance and also a CAQ acceptance, because they request that in Quebec province. I applied online and I provided all the documents they requested on the online application, after I submitted and paid for my application I had to do a bio-metrics, in less than week after doing my bio-metrics, I got refused for two reasons! first one was “purpose of visit”
    and the second one was “I am not satisfied that you have demonstrated a credible study plan nor compelling reasons to pursue this course of study at this time”. What is really confusing is that there is no section or a request to upload a study plan nor purpose of visit and I find that those two reasons are quite ridiculous, because the purpose of visit is obviously for studying! And what do they mean by a study plan?

    I went to Canada in the summer of 2008. I started studying at Fraser International College. In the Summer of 2009 I transferred to Simon Fraser University. Everything went well after that. There were semesters where I didn’t get the courses I wanted so I took a semester or two off. In Decemeber, 2012 my grandmother passed away and things took a turn for the worse. I became very absent minded and my gardes started falling. My study permit expired in July, 2013 and I applied for restoration in October. My restoration got rejected as my passport had expired. After a lot of pleadings my passport got renewed in Vancouver. I talked to a few counselors and professors and based on their advise I hired legal services but in vain. Then I decided to leave Canada and went to The United States of America. I applied for a new study permit from there which again for rejected and was told to serve a ban for six months. I came to India right away. I stayed patient for the six months and after the ban got lifted I re applied and got rejected again yesterday. I am almost done my course with a semester or two to go. I am almost done my course and if you could please find me a way to finish my degree. That is all I want.

      Hello Pari,

      It is sad to hear that your sponsorship was refused. In order to see how to proceed further, we need to check the reasons why it was refused. However, since you had submitted outside Canada application you can appeal the decision. The only thing is you have to check the refusal date first and make sure you are submitting your appeal within the time frame. Please contact us if you wish our highly experienced professional lawyers and consultants will assist you with your appeal.
