The demand for many to immigrate to Canada for either temporary residence or permanent residence is greater than ever. Therefore, it is only natural that there would be a long list of frequently asked questions about immigration to Canada.

Frequently Asked Questions About Immigration to Canada

Here are a few of the most frequently asked questions about immigration to Canada:

How does someone immigrate to Canada?

The first step to immigrating to Canada is to speak to an immigration lawyer, or an immigration attorney as they are referred to in the United States. This is a wise first step because the immigration lawyer will assess your case, determine if additional information is needed and let you know through their experience and expertise whether or not your chances of successfully immigration to Canada are good.

After you hire your lawyer, they will let you know what documents you need and prepare your application forms. In addition, they will keep an eye on your application throughout the process and keep your informed.

What should someone expect from their immigration lawyer?

When first consulting an immigration lawyer to immigrate to Canada, your lawyer should let you know whether or not they think the likelihood of a successful application is possible based on your situation. Despite their knowledge and experience, no immigration lawyer should ever guarantee your application’s acceptance or say that they can get you into Canada for sure, as long as you pay them a fee.

If your experience with an immigration lawyer or immigration consultant sounds similar to this, it’s best to shop around for a new immigration lawyer. Your immigration lawyer should be in constant contact with you and never more than a phone call away – easy to reach and easy to speak to when you need to.

Why use an immigration lawyer?  

An immigration application to immigrate to Canada is much more than filling out paperwork. It can be a time-consuming and expensive process if you go it alone and make any mistakes – which can also result in the denial of your application. An immigration lawyer will give you the best chance for success when you apply to immigrate to Canada, and if your application is denied, help you through the appeals process.

I could not have asked for more! The VisaPlace team are extremely professional, they know their stuff. They gave me great information, prepared my work visa application and then prepared me for the submission process. I was successful. Got my visa. 5 stars! I would give them 6 if I could.

This is not an exaggeration!!! I was truly impressed with the way VisaPlace consultants handled my case. The consultants- Emily, Lauren, Takunda and Lisa, took their time to explain to me in great deal how they were going to approach my case and how they would handle setbacks, if any. Their professionalism and knowledge of the law were superb. The minor setback that came up was quickly addressed by the team. The team constantly kept me updated on the progress/status of my application; they quickly responded to my questions/concerns. They had predicated my permanent residency to be processed within 6 -12, and Indeed it was processed and completed within 6 months. Based on my personal experience, Emily and Lauren's team are the best! They deserve 5 stars!!!!!!!!!!!

VisaPlace helped me sponsor my husband to become a Permanent Resident of Canada. They were extremely professional. Every step along the way was explained fully and expertly taken care of. The staff responded immediately to any questions and always handled our concerns fully, taking as much time as we needed to understand where we were at in the immigration process and what to expect next. I would recommend VisaPlace with no hesitation at all. I'm sure if we had tried to navigate the immigration process ourselves, it would have been much harder.
