What to do after your application for a Canadian TRV is refused?
Many applicants experience disappointment because even after submitting all the required documentation, it still ended in a refusal. More than likely, you made the mistake of only providing the documents being asked. Remember that each applicant’s situation is different, so what is sufficient documentation or proof for one applicant may not be the same for another applicant.
Do you reapply? Unless you have new information for the officer to consider, you will receive the same result. It is very hard to get a visa officer to overturn the decision of a previous officer. This is why when you apply for the first time, you have to give it your best try.
At this point, you may want to seek the help of an immigration consultant to look at your case and represent your application before IRCC. We will request for the notes made on your visa application by assessing officers. This will provide valuable insights on why your application was refused. An immigration consultant can assess your chances of success and provide advice on how you can come up with a stronger application.
The visa officer assessing your application must be convinced of the following:
- You are a genuine visitor.
- You will leave Canada by choice on or before the end of your allowed stay.
- You are admissible to Canada.
