Our Recent Immigration Success Stories

At Bellissimo Immigration Law Group PC, we are privileged to work on behalf of many wonderful people, companies and associations. We represent immigration applicants from far outside Canada, from the time they step foot into the country’s airport waiting rooms all the way to the Supreme Court of Canada.

Our immigration clients often tell us after their case is concluded that it would have helped to know of similar stories that are real and not just what you hear on the street. So every month, we post a few stories to celebrate our immigration success stories and offer some comfort to those who will soon embark on a similar journey…

PR Granted in 2 Months under Express Entry!

We are receiving an increased number of inquiries from people who are currently on a student or working visa in the USA. They want to apply for permanent residence in Canada for one reason or another.

In the past few months, we’ve successfully helped two clients apply for permanent residency through the Federal Skilled Worker program under Express Entry. Both clients are from India who had completed their master’s degree in the USA and were working in the States on the H1b working visa. Once they received an Invitation to Apply (ITA), we asked for their personal history for the past 10 years and all the supporting documents, helped amend the employment reference letters to ensure they included all the required elements, and submitted the applications within the allotted 60 days. Both applications were approved in just two months. Our clients have landed in Canada and one received his PR card last month. We wish them all the best!

Successful Citizenship Application Despite Inadmissibility

Our office was recently retained for a Proof of Canadian Citizenship Application, where the client had a US DUI in the past and wanted to visit a sick family member in Canada. The client’s parent was a British Subject of Canada and had been living in U.S. since the 70’s. We crafted our legal submissions, including making arguments regarding the DUI charges and need for urgent processing as the client’s relative’s condition was serious.

We are thrilled that IRCC sent our client their electronic citizenship certificate within two weeks of submission. We wish our client all the best!

Successful Sponsorship Application Despite Misrepresentation Concerns in the Past

Our client came to us to assist with spousal sponsorship when the representative they initially retained discovered that the applicant had previously provided incorrect information on their earlier applications to Canada. With this complication and significant concerns that the applicant may be found inadmissible for misrepresentation, the representative referred this couple to our office.

We diligently and thoroughly worked with our client to ensure that the information on the sponsorship application was complete and accurate, and that the genuineness of the relationship was well documented. Given the misrepresentation concerns, we also made a request for an exemption from potential inadmissibility finding based on humanitarian and compassionate considerations, including the applicant’s establishment in Canada, the hardship he would face if forced to return to his country of citizenship, and the best interests of his minor child. We are pleased to report that the applicant was not found inadmissible, and the sponsorship application was approved. We are very happy we were able to assist this couple and keep the family together, in Canada!

Visitor Visa Approved Despite Previous TRV Refusal

Our office was recently retained to assist our client with the refusal of his application for a temporary resident visa (TRV).  Upon review of the refusal letter, we suggested that our client challenge the decision to the Federal Court of Canada, as it appeared procedurally unfair and unreasonable. Once we received the Rule 9 (reasons for the decision), we crafted our legal arguments, including making submissions on undisclosed use of assistive technology and filed all materials with the Court.

Shortly thereafter, we received a letter from the Department of Justice on behalf of Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) offering a settlement to our client. Upon accepting the settlement offer, we were thrilled that IRCC sent the client a passport request letter and the client received their visitor visa within two weeks. We wish our client all the best!
