Canada is a beautiful country with the world’s most welcoming immigration policies. Canada has a lot to offer to every individual who desires to make a move. From picturesque surroundings and culturally diverse communities to more than 80 economic immigration pathways and high visa approval rates, Canada is indeed one of the best immigration destinations in the world.
But, before jumping to any conclusion, ensure to be fully prepared and avoid committing possible mistakes leading to application rejection at the initial stage.
To help you tackle the situation, we have come up with a list of 10 do’s and don’ts you must keep in mind during the Canadian immigration process.
Do’s While Immigrating to Canada
- Gather all the supporting documents ahead of time, especially your educational documents that need to be assessed to prove equivalent to Canadian standards and your medical examination certificate. The overall process of obtaining an Educational Credential Assessment report may take longer.
- Before applying, know about the minimum selection requirements for your chosen economic immigration pathway like Express Entry or PNP. You may take a free profile assessment and find out if you qualify or not. If not, you may work upon improvising those factors where you are lacking. For instance, you may score low points for language skills, for which you may take up IELTS training or gain more experience to qualify if you are not meeting the minimum requirement.
- Ensure that all the forms are complete, including the online forms. If you skip any minor detail, you may face delay or refusal.
- If you hire a visa and immigration consultancy company for immigration assistance, make sure that the consultant is ICCRC registered.
- If you miss out on any information or document, you must provide a Letter Of Explanation along with your application. It is required to explain why you missed out on the particular information or document and by what date you are expected to get it.
- Ever submit an incomplete application, or the IRCC will return it to your account with the underlying reason.
- Never provide misleading information or false documents, like passports, visas, police certificates, medical certificates, work or education documents, birth certificates, marriage or divorce certificates, etc. It is considered an act of misinterpretation and a serious crime for which the IRCC will refuse your application.
- Never overstay on your existing visa on illegal grounds. Even if you are waiting for your application to get processed and your existing visa will expire soon before the final decision, you must apply for a bridging visa.
- Never fail to inform the Canada immigration department about any changes in your personal information and circumstances. Always update the information in case of changes in your marital status, address, contact details, employment status, etc.
- Never ignore the deadlines for the final application, documents and fee submission, and quickly respond to any request by the immigration department for additional documents or information.
