When you hire lawyers and accountants for respective matters, immigration consultant provides you with professional assistance you require for migrating into another country. It isn’t like every other journey but a new beginning of your career ‘which requires professional guidance’.
Let’s look at the prospects of hiring the right consultant for immigration into Canada:
Choosing from the best option
When it comes to Canadian immigration there are more than 60 different immigration programs. What if you may be eligible for multiple programs at once? What if you want to migrate with your entire family? For example, a work visa can be applied in many ways. A ‘Registered Canadian Immigration Consultant’ who is an expert understands and assists you to choose the ‘best option’ which otherwise isn’t possible while choosing free online assessment forms. The role of an immigration consultant is not just filling out forms but imparting education on the country’s laws and regulations, different kinds of visas, their duration, and many others. The candidate is provided with a dedicated case officer by the consultancy who guides the entire process.
The communication barrier
Prospective applicants while applying on their own face multiple hardships one of which is the communication barrier. For Canada, English or French is the preferred mode of communication which might be hard while understanding the legalities. But a professional’s job is to liaise with the concerned IRCC (Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada) official which saves a lot of time for a candidate.
Forms and corrections
When you invest a lot of time and money you expect the right returns but what if a minor mistake might cost you dearly? The whole immigration process is not just a serious matter but a strenuous process. Did you know that filling in wrong information or leaving unanswered questions will lead to your application being rejected or sent back for re-application? A rejected application creates a permanent record in their database. A registered ICCRC consultant has all the resources at their disposal and makes sure your application process is done right, free of mistakes, well organized before being submitted to the immigration officials.
The very first step into Canadian immigration is the ‘Educational Credential Assessment’, which requires multiple educational documents and transcripts of the candidate. With the help of the consultant, you’ll be able to get these in order and on time. This helps you get your CRS (Comprehensive Ranking System) score.
