Canada has a strong community of people of about 400,000 originating from the Philippines.

Should You Contact a Lawyer First…?

It is important to remember that when applying for Canadian Immigration, you are required to submit your application to the Canadian Embassy of your nationality. However, there are some exceptions to this rule. You should always contact an immigration lawyer to assist you with the procedures associated with the Canadian Embassy of your region because the Canadian Embassy in the Philippines may have its own set of special rules and procedures.

    Hello!

    I currently have an appeal hearing scheduled with the Immigration Appeal Division towards reinstating my Permanent Resident status. The arrangement is that I will be attending over the telephone. I wanted to ask, would it make…for a better appeal if I were to appear in person for the hearing?

    Also, according to the documentation, a legal counsel is optional. However, would it be advisable to have a lawyer?

    Any advice would be most helpful!

      Hi Albertyn,

      There are many benefits to having an attorney present. The number one reason why visa applications are denied is because people attempt to go through the immigration process on their own. We would love to help you during your hearing process, but first, we need to take a closer look at your case. Please, complete this form for me http://www.visaplace.com/immigration-assessment/ it is just a quick and easy way for me to learn more details about you and your situation so that I will be able to advise you accurately and determine the best avenue for us to take to give you the best legal advice.

      Hello Dhang. Unfortunately there is no way to expedite Canadian immigration processing. What you can do is call the consulate or embassy from where you applied, and tell them your Unique Client Identification (UCI) and ask them for an update.

      Thank you for your inquiry Jenny. I am really glad that you contacted us.

      Depending on what type of visa you have applied for this will dictate the timeline. Sometimes when the visa office has a lot of backlog it may be delayed.

    just one question, i already gathered all the requirements needed for temporary resident visa application for canada, i got really confused on how or where to submit my application packet. i’ve read almost all the forums regarding this, but didn’t even get closer to the information i really needed. in short, where will I mail my application packet, or do i have to call someone or a courier to pick it up here, because that’s what i’ve read. thanks, need answer asap.

      Hello Junrey

      Thank you for your question.

      It looks like you have carefully prepared for your TRV application but there are no guarantees of success. You can hire a lawyer to help who has experience with TRVs from Manila. You do not have to hire a lawyer. That is up to you. In any case, you seem to have done your homework and are on the right track.

      Best of Luck
      Michael
