How To Appeal an Immigration Decision
Was your immigration application refused? Appealing may be an option
From time to time – and for many different reasons – an immigration application is denied. But that doesn’t mean that your chance of immigration to Canada is gone forever. You have several options and can appeal an immigration decision. Immigration officers use a set series of guidelines to determine whether your application meets the requirements to immigrate to Canada. Sometimes, the officers make mistakes or don’t take everything into consideration.
Depending on the case you can:
- Appeal your Canadian immigration application refusal at the Federal Court of Canada.
- Appeal the immigration decision to the Immigration Adjudication Division (IAD).
- Make a request for restoration to the case processing centre.
How Can I Appeal An Immigration Decision?
How you appeal an immigration decision depends greatly on several different factors. It depends on what type of immigration application it is, as well as where it was filed – in Canada or at a Canadian Embassy outside of Canada, for example.
What to know when Appealing an Immigration Decision
The most important thing to know when you need to appeal an immigration decision, is that you only have so much time to appeal. Depending on the application, you may only have as little as 15 days to appeal. A licensed immigration lawyer can help you determine the best avenue for your appeal to give you the best chance for success! Remember, if you get a refusal, do NOT delay!

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.
