Have you previously been refused a visa to come to Canada? Are you aware of all the possible options available to you when you had the refusal? Refusal of a visa can be very painful especially when you have put all possible effort you should into making sure you got it right. This article will discuss the available options you have when your application for a visa to Canada is refused.
- Reconsideration: You can make a request for a reconsideration of your application, especially if you think the immigration officer made an error which you feel may be corrected if you point it out politely.
- Judicial Review: Depending on the application, you may be eligible to apply for judicial review of the application. In this instance if your request is granted, a judge may allow or reject your request. If it is allowed, your file will be sent to a new immigration officer who will review and give a new decision on your application.
- Submit a new application: You can also decide to submit a new application, especially if you have new documents to back up your application or to address the issues raised by the immigration officer
- Appeal: In certain instances, you may have the right to appeal a visa refusal. If this is allowed, there will be specified number of days after the refusal within which you can file an appeal. You have to ensure the appeal is filed within this period.
