What a Canadian Visa refusal means to you

Reapplying is justified only if new information is available

According to the official recommendation of CIC, if your application to come to Canada is refused, you can send a new application at any time, unless your decision letter says otherwise. However, every Applicant should do so only if he or she can include new or additional information that was not sent with any previous application. On the other hand, on multiple occasions, we see cases when people completely change their stories, background data, even educational and employment records.

Every Applicant must be aware of the following:

  • Refusals for Canadian immigration applications do not just happen. The CIC officer will not believe every word in the application, and it’s up to them to decide if the Applicant is credible and trustworthy.
  • The actual Visa application is considered a sworn affidavit and there are legal consequences for providing false information.
  • All information provided with the application is saved in the CIC archive for future references.
