Immigration fraud costs students… permanently

Visas of over 50 students permanently rejected due to immigration fraud

According to this article in The Times of India, more than 50 students have had their visas to Canada and the United Kingdom permanently denied after being tied to immigration fraud in India.

According to one student, the fraudulent immigration consultants promised study loans for international students and then used fake documents to try and secure Canadian visas, but because the documents were found to be fake their visas were rejected permanently.

The company has 39 different franchises located throughout northern India. A previous article states that another company took people’s money while promising to send them to Western countries on work permits that never materialized. While this costs visa applicants their money, the aforementioned students are in a much worse situation because now their visas to Canada have been rejected permanently due to their ties to immigration fraud.

No matter where you are in the world, when you decide to come to Canada you must choose who you work with very carefully to avoid being cheated or disappointed. Hiring a licensed and properly regulated immigration lawyer is a great first step.
