Super Visa Refusal

It can frustrate you when IRCC refuses your Special Visa application. However, you have to understand that there other thousands of applicants in the same predicament. While Canada’s immigration departments often taut it as the most straightforward way to enter Canada, many applicants still have their Super Visas not approved.

​All foreigners looking to enter Canada needs travel authorization (in the form of a TRV (temporary resident visa) or eTA (electronic travel authorization) to board any plane destined for Canada. It’s the most vital component of the Canadian visa application process.  If you fail to get your TRV or eTA approved, you may be denied entry to Canada, whether on a student visa, visitor visa, work permit, or super visa.

A person from a Visa-exempt country only requires an eTA, which usually is easy to get. However, if you come from a non-visa exempt country, you need a TRV(whose screening process is more thorough). Moreover, the probability of IRCC refusing a TRV is significantly high. 

Common Reasons for Temporary Resident Visa Refusal

Without a TRV, you may not board any place headed to Canada if you are a citizen of a non-visa exempt country. Thus, a TRV serves as the passport that allows you to enter Canada. IRCC has put many states on its list of non-visa exempt countries to ensure thorough screening before entering Canada.

The application process for a TRV visa is often long.  It calls for the submission of volumes of documents containing family and personal details. Moreover, not just any paper submitted is accepted; IRCC must approve them before such documents can serve as proof and support of your application.

 Unlike the US and many other countries’ visas application process that calls for personal interviews, Canada is different. Your paper application will the primary process: no interview. It will help well if you prepare exceptionally well and submit a robust TRV visa application. IRCC officers often make decisions based exclusively on your application papers’ contents and may not ask you for any interview or extra information.
