Canada Visitor's Visa

Travel the world with Expedite Travel Services

How can we help you get your Canadian Visa approved?

A Canadian visitor visa is one of the easiest applications to be approved. Canada wants to bring family and friends together; as such, they are lenient in issuing visas. When you apply for a Canadian visa, you are not required to do an interview; you will however need to submit a list of supporting documents to the Embassy in order to get your visa approved. At Expedite Travel Services, we provide you access to expert and accredited Canadian Immigration Consultants to assist you in getting your Canadian visitor visa approved.

Though the process of applying for a Canadian visitor visa may seem easy to some, the process can prove to be rather confusing and lengthy- including several important forms that must be accurately completed and submitted to the Canadian Embassy along with the stipulated supporting documents. One mistake can lead to your immediate denial. But guess what? With our experienced and professional Immigration Consultants, your application will be accurately completed and all supporting documents submitted to the Canadian Embassy. It is important to note that using a well-established immigration consultant not only gives you the best possible chance of getting your study permit approved, but it also makes the entire process simple and stress-free. This is why Expedite Travel Services has recorded an unprecedented 98% success rate in Jamaica! With this excellent record, our clients continue to refer their friends and family members to apply with Expedite Travel Services.

Finance

Bank statement/ 4-months bank printout

Bank Statement is a common concern among applicants. Everyone wants to know the amount of money they should have in their bank account before applying for a Canadian Visa. It is important to note that visa application approval is not solely dependent on the amount of money in your bank account. A person with JMD 50,000 in their account can get their visa approved; while a person with JMD $100,000 in their account gets denied. The recommended amount to have on your bank statement should be approximately JMD $80,000. If you do not have any money in your account, you can get a four (4) months transactional history of your bank account once you have money going into your account monthly. Most applicants that get a Canadian visa application approved have less than JMD $100,000 in their accounts. The recommended amount to have on your bank statement is approximately JMD $80,000.

You don’t need to have a bank statement if your family or friends in Canada is paying for your trip. They will be required to send you a bank statement or a four (4) months transactional history of their bank account along with their job letter.

Visa Granted V.S. Visa Denied

This is a scenario demonstrating two(2) applicant, one being granted the visa V.S. the other being denied based on ties to home country

Mr. Blake was granted a Canadian visa by demonstrating strong ties to his home country.

Mr. Blake is currently living with his common-law spouse and 3 children for six (6) years. Mr. Blake is self-employed for over seven (7) years. When Mr. Blake applied for a Canadian visa, he submitted the following supporting documents:

Mr. Blake was granted a Canadian visa because of his strong ties to Jamaica based on the information provided on his application along with his supporting documents. These ties include: living with his common-law spouse and his kids for over six years and working as a vendor for three years. With these ties and being able to finance his trip independently, Mr. Blake was able to convince the visa officer that he would return to his home country at the end of his trip.

Mr. Morgan was denied a Canadian visa based on the fact that his ties were weak.

Mr. Morgan is single, currently living with his parents, and currently employed as a school teacher for one (1) month. When Mr. Morgan applied for a Canadian visa, he submitted the following documents:

Mr. Morgan was denied a Canadian visa because he did not demonstrate to the visa officer that he has strong ties to Jamaica based on the information provided on his application. In reality, a visitor visa is not difficult to attain, however, a lot of people overstayed their visit resulting in the thorough scrutiny of visa applications by visa officers to ensure that there are enough ties to compel you to return home at the end of your short stay. Although Mr. Morgan is a teacher, he did not have as strong family ties as Mr. Blake. Mr. Morgan is single (no strong family ties) and living with his parents.

Reasons for denial

MOST COMMON REASONS FOR DENIAL

I was denied a Canadian visa and I would like to know why; my application was done properly, and I provided all the required documents that were requested by IRCC?

We know how disappointing it can be when someone is denied a Canadian visitor visa. Just so you know, when you apply for a Canadian visa several factors are taken into consideration before your Canadian visa is approved. The visa officer carefully reviews your visa application to ensure that you have sufficient ties to your home country based on the supporting documents you submit to Immigration Refugees and Citizenship Canada.

You did not provide enough evidence that demonstrate that you are able to pay for your trip.

Having sufficient funds available to pay for your trip is the most crucial factor when applying for a Canadian visa. The visa officer wants to know that you can finance your trip to Canada based on the amount of money you are earning from your job and the money in your bank account. However, it is not solely dependent on the amount of money that is in your bank account. A person with one million dollars ($1,000,000) in their bank account may be denied; while a person with $100,000 in their account gets approved a visa. This is because the person with one million dollars ($1,000,000) in their bank account may not be able to prove how they accumulate the funds. While, at the same time, the person with $100,000 in their account can substantiate how they acquired the funds in their account. Though the visa officer wants to know that you can pay for your trip to Canada, they still want to see how you acquired the funds in your account. Notably, if they suspect that you borrowed the funds in your account to obtain a visa, they will deny you.

You have not provided enough evidence to prove that you will leave Canada at the end of your stay.

The visa officer wants to know that you will leave Canada at the end of your stay. As such, they will thoroughly review your visa application and the circumstances surrounding your travel plans, as well as other ties to your home country. Strong ties may vary from person to person; they generally include your job, house, family, and assets. Various aspects of your life bind you to the country within which you reside, such as employment, children, and spouse. If you fail to convince the visa officer that you will leave Canada at the end of your stay, they will deny you under the pretense that your ties to your home country are weak. The visa officer wants to know that you have your job, children, or spouse to return to after a short stay in Canada.

Failure to provide all relevant supporting documents

Many applicants who choose to complete their Canadian visa application independently end up ruining their application, as well as failing to submit all the required documents. Resultantly contributing to their Canadian visitor visa application denial. Let’s say you did not fill out your application correctly and/or failed to submit all the supporting documents-for instance, if you were arrested in the past and didn’t provide a police record, they will deny you, for the fact that you did not provide all the relevant documents to support your visa application. Hire a professional immigration consultant if you do not understand the entire process and the primary documents needed submission to the Canadian Embassy.

You haven’t provided enough proof to support your reasons for visiting Canada.

When you apply for a visa to travel to Canada, the invitation letter should state your reason for travel whether for: a family visit, tourism, funeral, wedding, or graduation. If you are attending a funeral, you must provide evidence of the death certificate. In the event that you fail to submit the right documents to indicate your main intention in traveling to Canada, the visa officer might deny you due to unclear reasons for traveling to Canada. Hire a professional immigration consultant if you do not understand the entire process and the primary documents needed submission to the Canadian Embassy.

Limited Employment and Job Stability

Being employed or working at a previous establishment for less than one (1) year indicates inconsistency and inability to settle in a job. The visa officer wants to know that you are stable working in a job for at least (1) one to one (2) years. The longer you are employed in an organization, the better are your chances of being granted a visa.

We have helped a lot of persons in the same position as you and they got through, anyone can be granted a visa, even persons who are not working apply and they got through. Even though a VISA IS NOT A GUARANTEE, we’ll ensure that you are fully prepared by filling out your application properly and by ensuring that you have all the relevant documents to get your visa approved.

Yes, once someone can present a bank statement on your behalf, whether it’s the person you’re visiting in Canada or in Jamaica.

One common concern among applicants is how much they should have on their bank statement before they apply for a Canadian Visa. It’s not all about the amount in your account. A person with one million in the bank may be denied, while a person with $20,000 – or even a bank printout that shows regular transactions –was granted the Canadian visa.

Yes, however someone that is unemployed stands a lesser chance of getting a visa than someone that is employed. However, it’s not impossible for someone that is unemployed to get a visa.

If you don’t have anyone in Canada we can schedule a hotel reservation for 40 USD or $5,000 JMD. With the hotel reservation, you don’t need an invitation letter. The hotel reservation has to be scheduled before your appointment.

Yes, you can still apply if your spouse lives in Canada.

You should try to apply at least 2 months ahead of your intended date of travel.

Yes you can, but it depends on your purpose of travel. An emergency appointment is considered when you’re visiting Canada to:

  • Attend a funeral
  • Attend a ceremony
  • Attend a sporting event 

Be sure to have some physical proof to satisfy you wanting to visit Canada for any of the intended purpose stated above.

I know how disappointing it can be when you’re denied a visa. Just so you know, you can reapply the same day. However, it’s best to wait for 6 months to 1 year to try your luck again. In most cases, visa refusal is caused by the ineligibility of the applicant, poor documentation, improper structuring of the application. The visa officer can deny you because he thinks that you don’t have a lot of ties to your country of residence. A person can have all the requirements and are still denied a visa. Some persons will get their visa the first time they apply, while some persons will visit the embassy 4 times before they are eventually granted a visa.

They took the time to review my documents in depth, made recommendations where necessary and go above and beyond to make sure my documents are well put together.
