How to Reapply for a Canadian Tourist Visa After Being Rejected
Canadian tourist visas can be very difficult to get. If you apply for one, you could find that your application has been rejected. So, what can you do?
Reapplying after any Canadian visa denial is always an option. Don’t forget this option, even though being denied a Canadian visa can be very frustrating and upsetting. One of your options for dealing with a Canadian visa denial is reapplying, but you could also appeal.
Should I Reapply or Appeal for a Denied Tourist Visa?
Whether you should choose to reapply for a Canadian tourist visa or go ahead with the appeals process depends on your personal situation. In addition, it really depends on why your Canadian visa application was denied in the first place. For example, do you feel that the visa officer who processed your case made an error in denying your application, and there wasn’t a mistake in the application on your own part? If this is the case, you should appeal your Canadian tourist visa denial to the Federal Court of Canada.
Note that this is a very difficult process and you will benefit greatly by having a licensed immigration lawyer on your side when you need effective arguments on your behalf in court.
If you have made a mistake on your original application, you could reapply with the proper information on the application. For example, you may have made a mistake on your initial application or forgotten to include a piece of the important documentation necessary for the application to be accepted (e.g. proof of ties to your home country and proof that you can support yourself while in Canada). You will have to explain on your application why you all of a sudden have new information that can get you accepted.
If you reapply for a tourist visa on your own, you may be denied the same as you were before. Make sure you discuss your options with a licensed immigration lawyer and have your case completely assessed.

I cannot thank VisaPlace enough for their help. I had an issue with my immigration work that I needed professional help with. The team did a stellar job in making my case and I am greatly indebted to them. I worked directly with Alicea. She was extremely professional and responsive! Even after building my case and submitting my application, she was always available to answer any questions or concerns I had for several months after. I highly recommend the team and would come back in future if I have to. Thank you!
