Student visa refusal

If you apply for a student visa without help, the chances are IRCC will refuse your application. You need an expert to help you design a powerful application that can convince visa offices to allow you to enter and study in Canada.

Here are some of the possible reasons why your student visa was refused:

If you’re coming from a visa-required country, you need to submit a strong application to convince visa officers that you are among the best applicant for the student visa. Applicants from visa-required countries often go through a more rigorous screening compare to persons from visa-exempt Nations. A temporary resident (TRV) visa is mandatory for workers, students, and visitors from visa-required countries.

When an international student applies for a study visa in Canada, and the application is successful, a TRV will also be issued.

It takes time and effort to apply for a Canadian student visa. The candidate will be required to submit volumes of information that are often personal, including personal family information. The visa application process in many countries, for example, the United States, involves a one-on-one interview with a Visa officer. The process is slightly different in Canada. The success of the Canadian visa application majorly relies on the submitted papers.

It is best to prepare thoroughly and submit a strong application since Canadian visa officers base their decisions of whether to accept the application mainly on the information applicants provide in the documents submitted; they rarely ask for extra information.

Most people whose applications are refused don’t understand the application process well. It would help to know why you were refused to study in Canada.

If the application has been refused, visa offices will flag you, and any of your subsequent applications will need to be stronger to be considered. Fortunately, the Rameh law firm can help you apply or reapply for a Canadian study Visa.

Possible reasons for student visa refusal

Study permit: you need to convince the visa officer that you intend to enter Canada solely to study. It is easier to convince them if you have a logical and detailed study plan. If you have previous work experience or postgraduate education, you must have a logical study progression. You will need to choose a study course that is sensical. You may also need to convince the visa officer how your degree, diploma, or certificate will help you after completing your studies in Canada. Most people get a refusal for lack of a study plan.

  • No travel history: if you have never moved beyond the boundaries of your home country, your visa is likely to be refused, especially if you are applying without expert help. Rameh law firm can help you maneuver through such hurdles by making sound legal arguments and drawing references from various Federal Court Cases that apply to your circumstances.
  • Proof of finances: most learning institutions in Canada charge at least $15000 tuition fee annually. The government wants to ensure an international student has inadequate finances to pay for tuition and the leaving expenses. A person looking to study in Canada must produce a bank statement equivalent to at least 30000 Canadian Dollars.
  • Family ties to Canada: it is surprising that if you have many family members already living in Canada, your student visa application is likely to be refused, especially if you apply on your own. However, get in touch with immigration experts. They can help you overcome such reasons for refusal by referencing relevant Federal Court cases and presenting strong legal arguments supporting your student visa application.

  • Personal assets
  • Illegal status in the nation you are currently residing in
  • if a student is old and lacks job prospects in their country, it can be grounds for student visa refusal.
  • Submissions of papers that seem unauthentic
  • If you have ever overstayed your status in your previous visits to Canada
  • Absence of evidentiary documents

Grounds for visa refusal that applies to any visitor in Canada include:

  • Criminality-having a criminal record
  • Misrepresentation: having been banned from entering Canada¬† because of submitting false information or¬† fraudulently obtained documents
  • The previous deportation especially having overstayed your previous visits illegally.
  • Medical inadmissibility: especially if you’re likely to be a public health threat to people living in Canada
  • Human rights violations: For countries that Canada deems as violators of Human Rights, any citizen who served in the army for such a country may be refused entry to Canada.
