Getting permanent resident status in Canada can be a daunting task for many people. There are certain factors that can delay a decision on your application, and there are certain things you can do to expedite the process. Here are some tips for a successful permanent resident application:
1. Be fully prepared
Before filing your application, you must do your research and be fully prepared for the undertaking. Be sure to use the CIC application guide available on the CIC website for reliable and valid information. Have your candidacy assessed and take a look at the checklist of requirements.
2. Know the cost
The financial aspect of your application can delay your application if you don’t completely understand it. Be sure to know all the fees involved in the application and pay them in the mode recommended by the CIC. The fees often change over time, so you should know the latest application fee, the medical expenses, visa issuance fees, and every other fee involved.
3. Use recent forms
Many people use old and obsolete forms. Keep in mind that the application forms often change over time and the CIC does not send out any notification in this regard. Be sure to use the latest forms and double-check the forms on the website before submitting your application. Always download the forms from the CIC website.
4. Seek professional help
Many people try to do everything involved in the application process themselves. If you are not an immigration attorney or advisor, chances are you may end up making mistakes in your application. It is always wise to use professional service when applying for permanent resident. You can discuss your case with an immigration advisor or attorney. Doing so will increase your chances of success with your permanent resident application.
