Don’t be scared of the Permanent Residency Questionnaire.

The Permanent Residency Questionnaire is a valuable tool used by Canadian Immigration Authorities to correctly assess the genuineness and extract detailed information from applicants seeking to renew their Permanent Residence visas or applications for Canadian Citizenship.

When an immigration officer feels that the presented information is inadequate, he requests for this 8 to 10-page document to be filled up. The document is cleverly drafted, it’s questions help bring out the truth behind any application and enable a correct assessment.

Nowadays, receiving a Permanent Residency Questionnaire is quite common due to an increase in fraud cases and misrepresentations. Those who frequently fly in and out of the Canada are served with this form since Immigration Officials wish to assess the correctness of dates and period of stay in Canada.

The questionnaire itself, asks exhaustive details about the applicant’s work history, current and previous addresses, educational qualifications and other details of the applicant and other family members.

How to submit the Permanent Residency Questionnaire

Answering this document needs careful deliberation and close scrutiny. The integrity of your application depends on this. Always be as accurate as possible. Many applicants have their facts in order but are not skilled at presenting the evidence clearly, in a smart effective way. Immigration firms like Jet Immigration have the required skills and knowledge to ensure effective presentation of your case. As this document has become quite common nowadays, immigration firms have helped numerous individuals avoid visa rejections or refusals after submission of this document.

Ways to avoid receiving a Permanent Residency Questionnaire

This document is requested mostly whenever there is a question of application integrity. A common issue is a mismatch or lack of supporting documents. You may also be flagged on the basis of having more than one valid passport, not spending enough days in Canada within the last 5 years or you are Self-Employed and also a National of a high risk nation. This can be avoided by seeking professional help at the initial application stage. When supporting documents are correctly presented upfront chances of receiving the questionnaire are minimized.

Want to be an International Student in Canada? Here’s the Strategy

The PR strategy for an international student

Want to be an International Student in Canada? Here’s the Strategy…

Every year thousands of international students join Canadian Colleges and Universities. The thrill of being an international student is an exciting and enriching experience but once completed, many dreams are shattered when students want to stay on and permanently immigrate to Canada. Here’s the catch. Many students find great difficulty in securing permanent immigration once their work permit expires. Add to this the mounting debt in the form of student loans. Sounds scary? It won’t be, if you plan out your immigration strategy well in advance…

3 Steps to ensure your residence in Canada as an International Student

Choose your courses wisely

As an international student, the courses and college you select will ultimately make or break your career and employment opportunities in Canada. If you wish to ultimately immigrate to Canada and avoid unemployment do your due diligence regarding the course:

  • Is your course in line with high demand occupations in Canada?
  • Is it in line with your past studies?
  • Does the chosen course belong to an occupation which will be in demand in the long term future as well?
  • How competitive is the profession you wish to get in to? Greater competition could spell lower paying jobs with less chances of employment

DO NOT rely on overseas student recruiters and/or ghost consultants. Their interests lie in filling up course seats, not in securing your future. Do your own research and actively participate in the course selection process. It is your future which is at stake, not theirs.

Do Volunteer Work while you study

Volunteer work may be paid or unpaid but counts as valuable experience. It also gives you a view in to what your future profession will be like. Employers value volunteer work. It counts more if you can volunteer at an organization which fits your targeted occupation.
Engage in volunteer work during your studies in your free time, weekends, study breaks and vacations. Avoid taking up odd jobs which do not align with your overall employment plan. Remember, self-employment does not count as valid experience!

Seek professional help from a licensed immigration professional

Trusted advice from an immigration professional will go a long way in helping you in securing permanent immigration. They will advise you not only about the best course of action regarding your selection of courses and future job opportunities but will also provide sound advice regarding your options for permanent immigration – how to do it smoothly, error-free and with correct procedures. Good immigration professionals help getting it right the first time itself, thus avoiding delays and costly appeals.

The best time to contact a licensed immigration professional is during your studies. Planning in advance is always smart. If you have already completed your course, aim to contact an immigration professional just before your open work permit runs out. After all, they specialize in making a smooth transition from your work visa/student visa to your Permanent Residence (PR) Visa.

business-investor-canada-main-final

As a self-employed businessperson outside Canada, setting up a business within Canada and immigrating can be an equally challenging and fulfilling scenario. There are many immigration streams across various Canadian Provinces which facilitate an applicant’s Canadian Immigration as result of an investment or business start-up under the prescribed criteria and guidelines. Listed below are the key guidelines for the business investment route.

8 Important Guidelines to help strengthen your Investor Class Application

  1. Have a clear distinction between your business intentions and actual ability to invest. They are not one and the same.
  2. Get your net worth evaluated as per the current valuations in Canadian Dollars
  3. Ensure that your business investment proposal is completely in line with your past experience. Attempting to immigrate on the basis of a new venture with no previous experience will face stiff resistance
  4. The more past business experience you have, the more solid is your case
  5. Your English and French proficiency do aid your application process even though they may not be mandatory for a specific immigration investment stream
  6. If you are conducting or have conducted an exploratory visit, your formal research and detailed reports will go a long way to strengthen your application
  7. You must be able to prove that your net worth or investment funds have been legally earned from a legitimate source
  8. If you have any relatives with existing vested interests in that particular province or destination this will add an advantage to your application

Complexities in the Business Investment route

Investment Immigration Programs are complex in nature and professional representation is recommended for an effective attempt. To ensure sound advice, correct representation and smooth, error-free processing use a trusted Immigration Consultant to help you with your application.

STOP! Don’t let your Work Experience stall your Canada Express Entry Application

Express Entry Work Experience
Work Experience can make or break your Visa Application

STOP! Don’t let your Work Experience stall your Express Entry Application

 

It is often seen that incorrect Work Experience is the single-most mistake committed by many applicants for Visa Programs within the Express Entry System for Canada. Applicants are unable to prove their work experience correctly to Immigration Authorities. Not doing this right the first time round leads to return or denial of your application, ultimately ending up in delays, rejection or even reaching the application intake cap before you can appeal or reply.

 

6 Ways to get your work experience submission right the first time round

 

1. Understand the work experience criteria mentioned on the form

If you have the slightest confusion or are unable to interpret what something means – seek professional help. Letting your ‘I will do it myself’ ego go, will only help you in the long run. Immigration Consultants have handled hundreds of cases like yours, they know what is being sought within the application form. Misinterpretation of criteria will only lead to delays or rejection depending upon the situation.

 

2. Follow the checklist in its true sense

Do not assume that skipping a few documents here and there will lead to a favorable outcome. Canadian immigration is very strict. If they have asked for a documents, it has been asked for a reason.

 

3. Any substitutes/alternative docs may not work

Unless otherwise mentioned, do not substitute your documents. If you have trouble in obtaining a particular document, a good Immigration Consultant will help guide you on getting it.

 

4. Self-declarations do not work

As the headline says, do not rely on self-declarations. Ensure a competent authority has validated your documents as per the instructions by the Canadian Government on the form.

 

5. If you are Self – Employed – Be extra careful

If you are Self-Employed, it becomes very tricky to prove that you have in fact, performed all the duties and tasks you have mentioned. There have been cases where a very well established dental surgeon in a metropolitan city got rejected due to lack of adequate proof of experience working as a ‘hands on’ as a dentist. Seek professional help to draft suitable replies experience related questions.

 

6. In case of Supporting Documents – More is always less!

Never shy away from attaching supporting documents. When in doubt,  more the better. In the quest for greater supporting documentation, ensure what you submit is relevant and certified as required by law.

Submitting your work experience correctly the first time round will definitely help ensure smooth processing of your application. When in doubt, an Immigration Expert will definitely provide correct, trusted advice as compared to doing it yourself or seeking help from friends and family.

Immigration Forum or Immigration Consultant – Who gives the right advice?

Immigration Forum

Should I take Immigration advice from an Immigration Forum or an Immigration Consultant?

When filling out your Canadian immigration application forms, we commonly seek out advice from Immigration Forums, trying to bypass going to an immigration consultancy and speaking to an Immigration Consultant. Of course this methodology may work for some but for others it may lead to utter confusion. Here are some key issues with taking advice from a forum.

5 Reasons why an Immigration Forum is not the answer. An Immigration Consultant is!

1. Skills,experience & qualifications of the advisor

Anyone can write anything in an Immigration Forum, irrespective of whether he is qualified or not. Unsuspecting individuals have had their cases delayed and rejected because they trusted a forum and not an expert. An Immigration Consultant is trained in the profession of immigration consultancy hence speaks from experience and acquired knowledge.

2. Each case is different

Most people offer advice based on their personal experiences. What they have gone through may not be what you are going through or needs to be done in your case even if it sounds similar. Immigration does not follow a standard template – each person is reviewed differently. A good immigration consultant will understand the merits of your case and put forward your available options.

3. Honest and Reliable Advice

A lot of advice on an immigration forum may be quick fixes and might be outside the boundaries of the law. A professional immigration consultant is licensed and bound by law to provide honest, truthful and genuine legal counsel to help you with your immigration.

4. Missing or Incomplete Advice

Many a time, the example presented in an immigration forum might be the same as yours. Unfortunately, the writer might have hidden some facts or skipped writing a few steps in his solution. When you try it you may soon realize multiple issues with the presented solution.

5. Dated Advice

Immigration Forums are mostly open for years. Advice given at some point may be valid for that particular time period and case. If rules and regulations have changed since the post, an individual may unknowingly attempt to use that advice and do something which might not be valid or is no longer required. An Immigration Consultant is always updated with the latest legalities regarding immigration. He will always offer trusted advice specific the merits of your case.

Forums should only be consulted for casual information. They may provide an idea, guidelines or a path but treating them as the final solution with matters concerning immigration is not only risky but dangerous. Always seek professional advice from a trusted immigration consultant to help ensure complete documentation and a smooth immigration.

Immigration Investigation and Fraud – Seek help from the experts

Seek legal counsel during an investigation

 

Need help with an Immigration Investigation? Don’t panic, here’s what you can do

 

Speak of Canada and you hear about polite citizens, fresh air, all-round greenery and a structured way of life. Canada is definitely a beautiful place to live and the Liberal Canadian Government is making many attempts to bring in maximum newcomers to live the Canadian way of life each year.

Unfortunately, the sudden influx of immigration cases has led to many trying to take shortcuts to enter Canada. This has led to many cases are being put under investigation as result of lack of genuine relationships, fraudulent documents, misrepresentations, divorces happening soon after the landing of the sponsored spouse etc. Most these cases are caught under the careful lens of immigration officials.

In light of using and abusing the immigration gateway for improper purposes, many genuine cases are also getting caught in this whirlwind. Immigration authorities have now started immigration investigation proceedings against those cases of honest, genuine, hard-working applicants, leaving them in utter confusion with how to go about avoiding being penalized.

Being a tricky situation, these cases demand a greater sense of caution and knowledge about immigration laws and proceedings of this nature. The best advice – get a knowledgeable immigration consultant. A good immigration consultant will spend the required amount of time, energy and effort to understand the complexities and merits of your case, the reasons for an ongoing immigration investigation and whether you are in the clear or not. He will then proceed to give a sound legal opinion as to the options you have and the best course of action. If you agree to his services, he will act as your defense counsel and proceed to give suitable reply regarding the genuineness of your case to the Immigration Officials. He will also represent you in case of further investigative interviews and work on appeals, if required.

Most individuals do not have in-depth knowledge of the immigration process and seek guidance. In case of an investigation, it is always recommended that individuals seek professional help to avoid being misrepresented and penalized for no fault of theirs

Individuals must realize that an immigration investigation or fraud is not only illegal but may attract criminal proceedings. Committing fraud not only attracts severe penalties but also maligns the overall impression of a particular ethnicity and/or nationality group. This would ultimately affect the immigration of your near and dear ones as well. It is best to have solid legal counsel to avoid this.

Has an Immigration Consultant promised you a too good to be true Canada Job Offer? Beware!

Canada Job Offer - Too good to be true
Beware of false promises

 

Is your Immigration Consultant promising a too good to be true Canada Job Offer? It probably is.

Each one of us works hard at getting a better job and achieving a better lifestyle. We are even willing to change countries to make our dreams come true. Every year thousands hire the services of immigration firms promising quick visas and a lucrative Canada Job Offer. Most sign up without any due diligence, later repenting on messed up dreams, empty promises and burnt savings in the form of fees to these immigration firms.

Developing nations like India offer ample scope for these overseas/ghost consultants and/or manpower recruitment consultants who actively sell a Canada Job Offer with visa packages. The market is still unregulated and this lets them say whatever they want to trap unsuspecting individuals into their fold. They offer extremely attractive salaries, guaranteed jobs, guaranteed visas and even free accommodation etc. to lure clients.

5 Signs that your Canada Job offer and Visa might be a fraud

1. You are promised quick entry in to a temporary foreign worker program

Be aware that these types of offers under the current Temporary Foreign Worker Program of Canada have extremely strict qualifying criteria for employers. Ensure that you know the criteria and meet the same before parting with your money.

2. You are guaranteed a basic entry-level job

In Canada, almost all basic positions are generally reserved for locals. They are not approved for foreign workers. If offered a basic position, be alert.

3. The job offers presented mention departure within a few days/weeks

Immigration/Work Permits/Scrutiny are not an immediate process. There is considerable time between accepting an offer and actually reaching Canada. Beware of fast processing schemes. They may not be genuine.

4. The job description is sketchy and incomplete

Promises of a ‘Bank Job’ do not represent what you are actually getting. Canadian employers have very distinct job descriptions and eligibility criteria. If you’re agent/consultant is not clear about the job, this may indicate future trouble.

5. Your pay is out of the world

Your salary is always evaluated by a prospective employer based on your skills, experience and qualifications. If you feel a consultant is offering much more than you’re worth or the position is worth, the offer may be fraudulent.

5 Ways to avoid being scammed by Immigration Consultants

Avoiding immigration and job fraud is not easy but due diligence must always be exercised.

  1. Research the Company online. Ensure that the website, Google, Linkedin, Facebook, Twitter all add up. No jobs are given out without a job interview. No interview means no job.
  2. Talk to your prospective employer is possible. Ensure they are for real.
  3. If you have friends/relatives in Canada, ask them to check out the employer’s address
  4. Take a second opinion from an immigration consultant within Canada. They can verify whether the offer is genuine or if the company exists or not. Many Immigration Firms offer this verification service.
  5. Verify the correspondence. Large employers have their own company email ID. They don’t send email through free accounts (yahoo, gmail, hotmail etc.). Emails offering jobs from large organizations will not have grammar and spelling mistakes. Poorly worded emails come from developing nations where English is not a first language.

 

Jet Immigration Ltd. offers honest and proficient Canadian Immigration Consultancy tailored to the needs of every client. We provide Employer Verification Services as well sound advice on procuring jobs and necessary work visas. Securing your trust and offering you professional, quality service is our primary aim. With a team of highly seasoned professionals, we strive to provide a one-stop package of professional services at very reasonable fees than that one may expect from any High-Quality Canadian Immigration Law Firm. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Immigration Referral Schemes – Good Money with little effort

Immigration Referral Schemes
Referral Schemes offer multiple benefits

Immigration Referral Schemes – Good Money with little effort

After having gone through the complex maze of immigrating to Canada or are still being in the process, you will quickly realize that having a trusted, professional Immigration Consultant really helps. Once your immigration is complete, you may be tempted to provide  leads through the firm’s immigration referral schemes and allow others to benefit from your experiences. Now, what if an Immigration Firm sweetened the deal a bit in your favor?

In today’s immigration scenario, referrals for business is common practice. Some may view it as a quick, money making scheme but referrals do provide a host of benefits, not only to the person referring but to the person referred and Immigration Firm as well.

Benefits to the person referring

Money!

Yes, each referral on conversion provides a monetary incentive. Think of it as some additional pocket money, with little effort from your end.

Benefits to the referred person

An idea about the process

It is normally seen that when you agree to be referred, your friend has previously briefed you about what the process is, documents required are and time it will take etc. This helps you start your immigration with some background about the firm or consultant already in place.

 Completed Background Check

When referred, you will not need to worry about the Immigration Firm’s reputation, it’s success ratios and charges. Since your friend has already gone through the process and recommends it, the firm will have already proved itself as a good consultancy provider.

Benefits to the Immigration Firm

Immigration referral schemes tremendously help reduce barriers of resistance towards accepting a service. The referred person is normally high on confidence regarding the firm’s abilities. This helps the firm focus their energy on solving or process his case more freely and not wasting time haggling and proving themselves.

What are good Immigration Referral Schemes

Good Canadian Immigration Referral Schemes are those where no extra costs are passed on to the referred client. Instead, referrals are paid out of the regular fees which are charged.  The idea of a referral scheme is to not only grow the business but to develop a greater level of understanding and long lasting relationship between the firm, their existing clients and new referrals, thus enhancing service levels. Payments to the individual referring most also be prompt and money transferred in a convenient way.

How do I choose the right Canadian Immigration Consultant?

Canadian Immigration Consultant
Choose your Canadian Immigration Consultant carefully

Immigrating to Canada can be both exciting and challenging at the same time. Having made up your mind to settle down in Canada, the first step which many of us take is to access the official Canadian Government Immigration website and learn about the process of immigration. We then proceed to download relevant application forms. Many of us try to do it on our own but soon realize that a Canadian Immigration Consultant can definitely help us through the immense jungle of paperwork and documentation.

7 Steps for selecting the right Canadian Immigration Consultant

1. Lowest Price might compromise quality of service

Be careful when it comes to what you are paying for. A lower than average price may not include many services or may reflect inexperience. Find out the average cost for your service and stay within the range. Remember, complexity of cases handled in the past, experience and success rates are reflected in a consultant’s charges.

2. Shop Around

Never settle with the first Immigration Consultant you are introduced to. Talk to various consultants, undergo free consultations, understand the simplicity or complexity of your case better. Every consultant brings something different to the table. You need to identify their area of expertise.

3. Use known sources or referrals

If you get a reference or hear about a Canadian Immigration Consultant from a known source your level of comfort and trust automatically increases.

4. Interview your final set of Immigration Consultants

After having narrowed down on a potential shortlist, make use of free consultations to assess the skills and knowledge of the Immigration Consultant. There may be a huge difference between what’s on a website and the actual service offered. As an example, at Jet Immigration Ltd. the Consultants allow for a free consult and spend a good amount of time making you comfortable with what they are willing to offer. It may be face-to-face or via telephone.

5. Ask for References

If you have narrowed on an Immigration firm and have no past background or history, ask for references. Good Immigration Consultants will happily provide you with references of past clients to help you gauge their experience.

6. Use a Consultant who is comfortable in your local language

Many immigration cases are from those nations where English is not a first language. Having a lawyer who understands you and your language (reading and writing) helps you to communicate your case more clearly. He also understand implications of options presented.

7. Verify your Canadian Immigration Consultants’s credentials

Take time to check out any awards the firm has won, any associations, recognition, past affiliations, current contacts, registrations and certifications undertaken. This will help give an idea of the quality of work which one may expect.

Remember, good consultants are those who are willing to invest time with you. They will make an effort to know you and your case to the best of their abilities. They will not speak about fees all the time and leave the onus on you to get things done.

 

 

Canada Visa rejected? Seek proper legal help and guidance

Immigration Visa Rejected or Visa Denied
Visa Rejected? Seek proper guidance

Visa denied? There are many times where in spite of our best efforts, due diligence and genuineness, our immigration visa application to Canada gets rejected or denied. It may be an earth-shattering moment but as I just said, it could be just a moment and nothing more. There are several steps which you can take to bring your application back to life…

Visa Rejections, Refusals and Denials (Know your options)

Analyze the Refusal Letter in Detail

First and foremost, carefully study the Refusal Letter. Understand what are the reasons for refusal of your application. If the reasons for refusal are vague or unclear, you can get a detailed reason for refusal by filing as Access to Information Request (If you are outside Canada) or a Privacy Act Request (If you are inside Canada). These requests can be made online. Citizenship and Immigration Canada must provide details within 30 days of receipt of the request. They normally reply by email.

Check your initial submission

Regardless of the fact whether the reasons for a rejected visa are justified or not as per your opinion, go through everything you submitted. Many a time, there is a document which has been missed or unintentionally a detail was wrongly filled, leading up to a rejection. For instance, something as simple as your Bank Statement not having your name on it can lead to a visa denial.

Seek Legal Counsel

Once you have made an initial assessment of what you think led to the Visa rejection, seek help from a trusted Immigration Lawyer. Get his professional opinion. Allow him to value your case based on its merits and explain your legal options.

Weigh your options

Carefully assess the options available to you. Understand whether your case merits legal recourse such reapplying versus appealing the existing case. Be clear on time, energy, effort and monetary expenses involved with the course of action you choose.

An Appeal is not always the best option

Amidst our high-flying emotions, we tend to think that appealing is always the best way to clear a case. Let your your immigration counsel advise you on the best route available. Many times an appeal may not be the best recourse and you might be better off reapplying for a certain immigration stream

Visa Rejected? We can help

As a leading expert in handling complex immigration cases involving visa denials and rejections, we at Jet Immigration Ltd. might be able to help, both in terms of identifying you legal recourse available as well as representing you.
