For most people seeking immigration, the process involves accurate interpretation of the requirements and error-free submission of paperwork. Unfortunately, the chances of being rejected are much higher due to avoidable mistakes made by applicants unaware of the right procedures, which makes working with a professional very important.
As an experienced immigration consultant in Calgary, AB, I have seen a fair amount of immigration application mishaps. Poorly filed immigration applications are usually the result of DIY efforts, which often lead to rejection from the Canadian authorities and the loss of thousands of dollars. Some of the errors DIYers usually do include filing the wrong application, forgetting to provide detailed information, not including the right processing fees, forgetting to sign their application, forgetting to date the application, use the wrong forms, etc.
