A client from China approached us to handle her elderly father Mr. Q’s visitor visa application after it was refused back in early 2022 due to various reasons. We started the application by making an Access to Information request (ATIP) for the officer(s) notes from Immigration Refugee and Citizenship Canada (IRCC).
Mr. Q plans to visit his daughter’s family who are permanent residents in Canada. As a 58-year-old retired applicant with no other travel history, the officer(s) is not satisfied that Mr. Q is socio-economic established and would leave Canada at the end of the period of authorized stay.
We did extensive research on Mr. Q’s family background, financial establishment, and relatives in his home of origin. In our submission, we comprehensively addressed the previous issues in his refused applications in a persuasive and clear way. After a few weeks of processing time, Mr. Q received the visitor visa. Both he and the whole family are super delighted after hearing this exciting news, as he finally can visit his daughter and grandchildren in Canada to enjoy their precious family time.
