Annually, thousands of people migrate from one country to another in pursuit of better jobs and the promise of a better future. However, the process of immigration is not an easy one with a lot of challenges along the way. Most applicants try to handle the process themselves but end up hitting a wall, which is one of the main reasons why it makes sense to work with an immigration service.
Immigration services can get their clients through the immigration process in a heartbeat as they have gone through the application process multiple times. They can save them a lot of time, figure out the right steps, and make sure all the submitted documentation is accepted.
To make the process of immigration easier for you, the experts at Apex Migration Legal Services Inc. have revealed the truth about working with immigration consultants.
They simplify the immigration process for applicants who sign the contract
This is not entirely true, although they do simplify the process to an extent, people should read the details, and know what they are signing up for. The truth about signing a contract with an immigration service agency or company is that they will assist with a lot of the process, be able to tell you what needs to be improved and worded better, and why some documents work better than others, but they cannot guarantee that their clients will receive the visa. However, they are significantly increasing the odds. People signing the contracts are advised to read what they are signing and not only follow verbal promises made by the company.
The immigration agency will provide information about category and best possible fees
While the immigration agency has and provides the necessary information, it is in the applicant's best interest to get these details clarified before taking the process forward. There have been instances where a person who is not a business owner, signed a contract to immigrate to Canada under a provincial entrepreneur nomination program, which he wasn't qualified for.
The immigration agency misrepresented and misled the individual as there are higher charges for the program he applied under. The same person could have immigrated under a regular work permit while paying a much smaller fee and applied for a permanent residence status at a later stage. This shows that misinformed clients will find themselves in difficult situations if they do not handle a bit of research at their end.
Applicants do not have to do much at their end
Applicants ideally do not have to do much at their end but are needed to handle the bare minimum. People should examine their qualifications to see if they match the services they sign up for in the contract. Additionally, they should look through the potential consequences resulting from this as well.
While there have been clients who went through their contracts in detail, paid, and signed for one specific visa category, when receiving their visa found that they received a visa that they had not signed up for. This should not be brushed off as an error as the fee structure for the different visa programs varies.
