My immigration application was refused, can you help me?
Immigration applications are refused frequently. While it is not an uncommon thing, it can have serious ramifications on your immigration progress in Canada. There are a number of different reasons why someone’s application can be refused, and what to do next depends on why it was refused. For example, are you ineligible to come to Canada under the stream you have chosen, or did you make a mistake on your immigration application?
The reason why your immigration application was denied, whether you are in Canada or not and what type of application it was all have an effect on which appeal option is right for you.
Appealing an immigration refusal
Before you appeal your immigration application denial, it’s important that you realize you may only have a short amount of time in which to do so. There are very specific requirements with regards to this, and you may only have a few weeks or days to appeal.
Your appeal options may include appealing to the Federal Court of Canada, appealing to the Immigration Adjudication Division, or making a request to restore your case to the Case Processing Centre. But not all of these options will apply in your case. That is why it is so important to speak with a licensed immigration lawyer as soon as you receive notification that your case has been denied.
