How do I appeal an immigration refusal?
Receiving an immigration refusal can be one of the most upsetting components of the immigration process. But just because you have been notified of a refusal does not mean that is the end of your immigration journey in Canada. In fact, there are several different options available to you if you have been denied to come to Canada.
Appeal options for immigration refusals in Canada
The most important thing when you have been refused for immigration or had an application denied is that you act immediately. In some cases, there are deadlines that must be met to appeal and you may only have days or weeks in order to do so.
One option is that you can appeal your immigration application refusal to the Federal Court of Canada. Another option is that you can appeal your immigration application refusal to the Immigration Adjudication Division, which is also known as the IAD. You may also be able to make a request to restoration to the Case Processing Centre, or CPC.
It is not always easy to determine which of these options is the right one for you, particularly because it depends on several factors.
To begin the appeals process, speak with a licensed immigration lawyer. The immigration appeals process is very difficult, and you may only have days or weeks to begin your appeal – that’s why an immigration lawyer can be so helpful. They know exactly what to do and how to do it, saving you a lot of time and making sure that everything is done properly.
