Success Story: Student to Permanent Resident Canada

Success Story

I came to Canada for my first time in 2005 from Syria on a student visa with hopes of one day becoming a permanent resident of Canada. After I graduated university, I reached out to VisaPlace to help with my permanent resident application. They were able to successfully help me obtain my PR and in the future, they will help me become a Canadian citizen.




Name: Houman

Date of Consultation: January 2013

Turnaround: 6 months

Type of Visa: Canadian Permanent Residency


Permanent Resident Success Story



In June 2005, Houman, a Syrian native, was granted a Canadian student visa to finish his studies in Canada. Shortly after receiving his Canadian student visa he flew to Canada and settled in Vancouver, Canada. He finished his Doctorate in 2013 and has continued to stay in Canada with hopes of becoming a Canadian citizen

Immigration Situation

Houmam arrived in Canada in 2005 on a Canadian student visa but once he graduated college he was supposed to return to Syria. Abeo was overwhelmed with the thought of having to go back to Syria instead of staying in Canada where he has called his home for the last 8 years. Houmam reached out to VisaPlace after seeing our advertisement on the Metro. VisaPlace wanted to help Houmam achieve his goals with ease since being a student is stressful enough.


While still in school, Houmam, applied for Canadian Permanent Residency through the British Columbia Provincial Nominee Program so that he could begin working as a doctor in Canada. VisaPlace helped Houmam receive Canadian Permanent Residency in 2013. It was not an easy task as Houmam did not have any financial means since he was just a student. VisaPlace was able to use his work experience and education to leverage him for permanent residency. It took about 6 months for Houmam to obtain his Permanent Resident status in Canada.


Although VisaPlace helped Houmam with his initial goal of staying in Canada after graduation, he wants to expand that even more. Houmam wants to become a Canadian citizen so, with a few more years of working and living in Canada, VisaPlace will be helping Houmam achieve his long term goal.
