Visa Application Process to Move to Canada in 2020
Do you want to know why your chances of getting a visa to move to Canada increases when you use a paid regulated consultant?
In these uncertain times, wouldn’t you want to place your future plans to immigrate to Canada in the hands of seasoned professionals, some of whom have not only gone through the process personally but understand the Canadian immigration system through and through?
So “Why do I need a professional consultant to do something that I can do for free?”, you may be asking yourself. The answer is simple. A free service will never give you a personally tailored strategy based on an in-depth analysis of your particular case. You will get a generic evaluation for free.
You will never get full-time support and guidance throughout the entire application process from a free service. A bot response at best.
You could absolutely apply for a Canadian visa on your own, but then you won’t be able to optimize your Canada visa application by using a company that has a 97% success rate.
But before we delve into why you should use our services let's take a look at why you should be using a paid regulated immigration service. Period.
Why You Should Use a Paid Rather than Free Immigration Service to Move to Canada
Applying for a Canadian visa application on your own to move to Canada is definitely possible but risky if you don’t have experience in how to navigate the Canadian immigration system and website. Immigration is a big decision, the details of which should remain in the hands of experienced professionals, after all, would you allow an inexperienced doctor the chance to operate without the necessary credentials or experience? So why would you risk your chance of starting a new life to save a couple of dollars? Here are some of the top 3 reasons why you won’t regret using a paid service to apply for your visa to Canada.
1. Receive a Thorough Evaluation of Your Immigration/Visa Profile
Quite simply put. You get what you pay for.
So your immigration agency claims to offer a free eligibility evaluation. Is anything in life really free? Let's face it, most companies will work on their costs for freebie evaluations into their service price somehow. What is an eligibility evaluation/assessment? It’s basically a way of telling whether or not you can apply for a Canada visa and which options are best suited to your specific needs. A free eligibility evaluation will offer you nothing but a generic version of a paid assessment, a one size fits all version of the evaluation. Paid evaluations are tailored to your specific needs and circumstances, which is something that a free evaluation simply can’t provide. You will also receive a detailed CRS (Comprehensive Ranking System) score to show you which areas could use improving.

2. It’s Less Likely That You’ll Be Scammed
As the number of immigration companies increases to meet the needs of the current Canadian Labour market, so does the influx of fraudulent immigration companies. The first red flag in immigration scams is if a company wants to charge you money but do not have at least one government registered and Regulated Canadian Immigration Consultant (RCIC). The easiest way to check this is by entering the RCIC’s registration number onto the ICCRC website. By using a reputable company that is in good standing with the Canadian government will reduce your chances of getting scammed and tell the real from the fake. Remember only consultancies that have RCICs or a registered immigration lawyer are legally permitted to assist you with your visa application in exchange for a fee.

3. Your Chances of Success Increase Immensely
Although the Canadian government treats all cases with the same level of urgency and professionalism, it cannot be argued that your chances of success are improved simply by using a paid immigration service. Firstly the RCICs or legal representatives know their way around the Canadian Immigration service and will reduce uncertainty as to whether you have made the most informed choice or whether you have completed your submission correctly. Either way, you can rest assured that your Canadian visa application is in great hands: in the hands of those who are regulated by the Canadian government., in the hands of those with a 97% success rate.
How Does the Visa Application Process Work?
With words such as Express Entry, PR points, PNPs, eligibility evaluations and EE draws circulating in the Canadian immigration sphere, it’s no wonder that the process can become quite confusing, especially since certain programs have their own application requirements, deadlines, as well as methods of applications, which means that there’s no real one size, fits all answer to this question, at least if you don’t want a generic one.
The truth is that the only way that you can get one answer is if you use the services of the government-approved immigration consultants who only have one standard application process. That’s right, one process.
Step 1: Eligibility Evaluation
The eligibility evaluation is the way that the Canadian government determines whether you are eligible to study in, work in travel or move to Canada. It does 2 main things:
- offers an in-depth assessment of your immigration profile based on information such as your age, nationality, education qualifications, work experience, ability to settle in Canada, language ability etc.
- Tells you which visa options you qualify for and which will be best suited to your specific needs and circumstances.
Once you have made the wise choice of choosing your government trusted immigration consultancy, you will then be required to complete your payment for your eligibility assessment stage of your application.
It is important to note that this is not a part of our actual visa application. It serves to confirm if you qualify to apply for a Canadian visa.
After payment has been made, you will receive email confirmation and will be contacted by one of our agents within 48 hours.
You will then need to complete an in-depth questionnaire about your personal and professional details. For this paid service you will receive:
- CRS points results;
- Guidance and support regarding which visa option would be best for you.
- A detailed timeline regarding visa options processing times
At this point, you have the option to choose which visa option you would like to proceed with and can then move on to the Canadian visa application stage.
Knowing which visa option is best for you boosts your chances of getting a visa to move to Canada. It's just that simple
Step 2: The Visa Application Process Begins
With over 70 different visa and immigration options available to you, this is usually where you would begin to feel overwhelmed. But because you’ve already done your assessment you already know exactly which visa you will be applying for and will give you the best chances to move to Canada.
At this point, you will receive a document checklist which you will need to supply to your immigration consultancy. Once you have decided to move forward with your application you will be required to make a new payment for the visa application stage of the application process.
Why do we do separate transactions? One, it's unfair to expect you to pay for a full package without knowing if you will qualify for your chosen immigration visa, program or stream. Two, once you have had your evaluation done you have the freedom of choice to opt-out or continue with us on your amazing journey to Canada. And three, we believe that you should know all your options before committing to such a life-changing event let alone part with your hard-earned savings.
Once your payment has been confirmed our dedicated team of legal professionals and RCICs will be able to tackle your case head-on and give you the desired and optimized results that you’ve been dreaming of your entire life and complete and submit your application to the Canadian government on your behalf.
A fresh start, in a new city, in a new home with new opportunities in a country that thrives on freedom, diversity and innovation.
Step 3: Book That Flight!
Once your Canadian visa application has been processed by the Canadian government, who have sole responsibility for granting or rejecting visa applications, they will notify your legal representative or immigration agent to let them know if you have been successful or not. It is important to bear in mind that no consultancy or immigration firm can ever guarantee a visa or job. If your current consultancy is making these kinds of promises we recommend proceeding with caution as this is a possible sign of fraud or scam activity.
Once you receive confirmation from your agency there’s nothing left to do other than start to make plans to wrap up life in your home country and make the necessary plans for your new life in Canada!
