Visa Refusal and Immigration Appeals

Has your Visa been refused or rejected? We can help you appeal

If your Canada Visa application for Spousal Sponsorship, Parental Sponsorship or Permanent Residence has been refused, we can help. Before any course of action is undertaken, it is best to understand which authority will be dealing with after a refusal.

Which Authorities looks into my Visa Refusal?

If an application is refused by an Immigration or Visa Officer, the Immigration and Refugee Protection Act of Canada provides for certain legal recourse for specific classes. The said recourse is mainly categorized at 2 levels i.e. Immigration Appeal Division (IAD) and the Federal Court Judicial Reviews.

Below are the jurisdictions of these two authorities. They are Visa specific:

Immigration Appeal Division (IAD)

  • Sponsorship Appeals: Spousal Sponsorship Refusals, Parents Sponsorship Refusals (Income Requirement, Medical Inadmissibility etc.)
  • Remover Order Appeals
  • Residency Obligation Appeals

Judicial Review/Federal Court Judicial Review

  • Economic Class Refusals – Skilled Worker, Business Class Applicants
  • Temporary Visa Refusals
  • Failed IAD Appeals
  • Failed Refugee Claim Appeals

It is mentionable here that while there are plenty of legal recourses in place, it is important to understand your case and analyze whether there is sufficient merit to appeal. If your case is less likely to succeed in and Appeals/Judicial Review, other options are available. An experienced Immigration Consultant will help determine your best course of action.

As an example, in some cases it is more time effective, less costly and successful to re-apply with a corrected fresh Immigration Application.
