8 Biggest Security Questions Asked & Answered

Your trust and security are a top priority to us. The immigration process entails having to handle many sensitive documents, like birth certificates and financial statements. Here we have compiled the 8 Biggest Security Questions Asked & Answered to ease your mind and ensure your Canadian visa application process is worry-free.

1. Do you have a privacy policy?

Our privacy policy ensures that your information is kept protected. Trusting others with personal details and banking information can be worrisome. However, when you become a client, you become protected under our privacy policy. It explains what information we require from you, why we need it and what we do with that information to assist you with your Canadian visa application.

2. How do you ensure that my payments are secure?

We use the SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) protocol to secure your protection. Microsoft created this technology exclusively for internet payments. During your evaluation, we’ll ask you to make payment to our company for the services provided.

After you've completed your payment, the SSL system will encrypt and then destroy your credit card information. It’s a trusted system that is used by some of the world's largest online businesses like Amazon, eBay, PayPal, and online banking.

Over and above that, you will be asked to make a payment with your VISA or MasterCard debit/credit card before we can begin processing your application. These card services provide the safest payments in the world and allow you to trace your payments in real-time.

We always ask for your CVV number when completing a payment over the phone. This three-digit number on the back of your card serves as an "electronic signature," which is required in order to complete your transaction.

3. What is your refund policy?

It’s important to note that Canadianvisa.org will give all refunds at our exclusive discretion. In no case will reimbursements exceed the amount that consumers have actually paid for the credit that is still owed to them. Because certain services would have already been provided, the paid fees will not be refunded after 10 days have passed from the time of purchase.

You could always take a look at our terms and conditions to ensure you are well-informed.

4. Are Canada Immigration Services safe?

Many Canada Immigration Services are indeed safe. There are several ways you can tell if you’re using a scam site. A big indicator is whether they use RCICs or Regulated Canadian Immigration Consultants. Another huge indicator is active media presence. A good way to find out is to read reviews and personal experiences with an immigration service. Positive internet reviews are a big sign of a reliable organization.

Furthermore, the information on their website should be current and helpful to potential applicants. It should clearly state the company's offerings as well as the availability of important web documents such as the privacy policy and terms and conditions. A trustworthy company's social media will be updated on a regular basis and will contain material related to immigration.

5. Why is using an RCIC safer than applying myself?

Regulated Canadian Immigration Consultants, or RCICs, are legally recognized representatives. The consultants with whom we collaborate are highly trained and competent and are well-versed in Canadian immigration regulations.

Having an RCIC helps you with your Canadian visa application. They not only make the process much easier but they will make sure you have all the correct documentation. That way you know your chances of a successful application are higher.

6. How can I trust an RCIC with my personal information?

This is a must to include in our 8 Biggest Security Questions Asked & Answered. RCICs are professionally trained and vetted. Part of their training shows them how to interact with clients to ensure a trusting relationship is established. Over and above this, you’ll sign a retainer agreement that is set up to protect both the company helping you on your journey to Canada and yourself. Your personal information will be safe from a legal standpoint, but it will also be in trusted hands that have your best interests in mind.

7. What is Security Screening?

Any foreign individual who wishes to become a permanent resident of Canada must first get a Canadian visa. To acquire a visa, a foreign national must fulfill all of the standards set out in the Immigration and Refugee Protection Act (IRPA) for the category for which they are seeking, as well as be found admissible.

To assess a foreign individual's admissibility, it must be determined that the foreign national does not pose a threat to the health, safety, or security of Canadians. Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) and the Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) are in charge of enforcing the Act's different sections. An IRCC employee must decide that the applicant is eligible for Canada before issuing a visa.

8. What happens if I don't have my documents when I enter Canada?

You have to ensure you have all your documents when you enter the country. With a few exceptions, all travellers entering Canada by air, land, rail, or sea must utilize ArriveCAN: an app the Canadian Authorities use to track who’s coming in and out of the country. Your information must be submitted 72 hours prior to your arrival in Canada.

If you don’t do this, you could risk being denied entry into the country. The app will ask you to fill in personal and contact information as well as your vaccination records, quarantine plan, travel history and more. It does not use GPS tracking and your information is secure.
