Why Choose Us
Choosing Crightney Immigration Inc. an Immigration Consultant Firm or Other Immigration Lawyer Firms?
When submitting an immigration application, you can attempt to do it yourself or hire a licensed and trained professional to assist you.
Although the Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) formally Citizenship and Immigration Canada (CIC) website allows you to moderately apply for temporary or permanent residence, the reality is fairly different.
For example, did you know that Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada website only provides the most basic list of required supporting evidence? More often than not, the list provided by IRCC is insufficient to convey the elements of evidence needed to support an application. In addition, the application forms must be completed in an explicit way. With the slightest of errors an application can be delayed for months, or even rejected.
Often times, significant documents such as affidavits and supplementary documents, are unquestionably required for a successful application. However, you will only discover this when your application is rejected.
A submission letter is another important document to provide to IRCC when submitting your application. A well drafted submission letter can significantly assist in making an application compelling, as a submission letter assists the visa officer in knowing the issues at hand and the resolution to those issues in a particular application. Do you know how to draft a compelling submission letter?
You may also encounter frustration contacting the IRCC Call Centre for assistance. Many individuals have experienced extensive waiting periods on the phone, and received answers from a Call Centre employee who does not properly provide answers to issues. At Crightney Immigration Inc. we have access to contact information for managers in each visa office around the world.
