Why You Shouldn’t DIY Applying For Immigration To Canada
While Canada’s demand for immigrants is high, the government has strict requirements when it comes to approving applicants in its immigration programs. Many aspirants applying for Canadian immigration on their own often misjudge that the forms are not what matters; the process matters the most. And if the process is not managed correctly, it can result in frustrations and delays.
Although it’s not mandatory that you should hire a consultant or lawyer to represent you in your Canadian immigration application, it is preferable that you do. However, if you choose to go the DIY way, you will need to become the expert in a complex system of programs, deadlines, forms, and more.
At Springwind Immigration Consulting Service Inc., we know about an average person’s challenges when approaching the ever-evolving Canadian immigration process. This is why we have come up with a few points to emphasize why you shouldn’t attempt to DIY immigration.
1. You may misunderstand important legal terms
First of all, there is so much information about immigration, including different programs, various requirements, and all kinds of regulations. As a layman, you may misunderstand such important information that your application should provide or simply stress over it. What’s more, when you commit mistakes, omissions, or wrong judgment, it could cause misrepresentation, resulting in a disastrous consequence.
Secondly, if mistakes are found on immigration applications, the officer may sometimes ask for more information about the concerned. In this case, you are lucky to “fix” negligence. However, most of the time, your incomplete application will be denied. When that happens, you may have the chance to re-apply if you are still eligible to do it. But if the mistakes are severe enough, you may be judged to be misrepresentative and will be banned from re-apply for several years.
2. It can cost you more time and money
By not hiring a professional, you may think you’re saving on some legal consulting fees for your application. However, the risk is much more than that. An incomplete application will be returned or refused, and the mistakes may lead to undesirable results or even cause misrepresentation. Can money fix these mistakes? Most of the time, no.
Do the right thing - Hire a professional
A professional immigration consultant can help find the most suitable immigration program for you. They can help you interpret the relevant regulations and requirements and, most importantly, help you avoid mistakes. As a result, your application will be complete and with strong document support.
Just remember to hire a Regulated Canadian Immigration Consultants (RCICs) who is regulated by the Immigration Consultants of Canada Regulatory Council (ICCRC). In case you have a complex matter, make sure you hire an experienced RCIC who is trustworthy and easy to communicate with.
Generally, the cost of an Immigration Consultant’s services depends on the type of the application and how complex the case is. It may vary from a few hundred to a few thousand dollars.
