Temporary Resident Visa Refusal


Has your Temporary Resident Visa (Visitor Visa) been refused because of the following reasons:

  • Travel history;
  • Establishment to home country;
  • Family ties;
  • Personal assets and financial status; and
  • Purpose of Visit.

Then you are not alone Temporary Resident Visa refusals from India are on a rise. This is due to the excessive fraudulent applications being received by Immigration Refugee and Citizenship India (IRCC)  from India by Ghost Consultants. This problem is rising on an alarming rate and the public continues to be unaware. It is very important for the public to know that only a registered ICCRC member or a Canadian Barrister and Solicitor can represent you.

If a representative have charged you money to represent or advise you on Canadian Immigration Law, you are bound to disclose the representatives names paid or unpaid on the Use of Representative form. This is what a Use of Representative Form looks like. If your representative did not provide a Use of Representative form he is more than likely not allowed to represent.

Refusals on visitor visa applications from India due to fraud and misrepresentation are soaring, which Ottawa and immigration experts say is in part due to unscrupulous ‘ghost consultants.’

While the number of Indian visitor visa applications has increased significantly, refusals are growing at an even faster clip. Data provided by the federal government show that the percentage of refusals due to an applicant misrepresenting themselves – through fraudulent submissions, for instance – has nearly tripled. In 2017, 0.9 per cent of all Indian visitor visa rejections were for misrepresentation; from January to May this year, the number jumped to 2.5 per cent.

Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) refused 1,477 applications due to misrepresentation in 2017. Between January and May of this year, that number had already reached 3,709. The department could see close to a 500-per-cent increase in fraud refusals by year’s end compared with 2017 if current trends hold.

In response to the increasing number of refusals for Indian applications, in June the federal government rolled out an information campaign targeting Indians applying for visas. The effort includes resources on identifying and reporting fraud throughout the process, including by ghost consultants – unscrupulous, unlicensed immigration consultants.

“We anticipate that this campaign will help address some of the spinoff effects of circulating misinformation, such as high refusal rates and abuse of the asylum system,” Mathieu Genest, a spokesperson for Immigration Minister Ahmed Hussen, said in an e-mailed statement. Mr. Genest said the problem of ghost consultants is “particularly acute” in India.
