A leading immigration consultant, Mr. Taiwo Roluga, has explained why the Canadian consular office rejects certain visa applications of Nigerians who wish to study in the country.

Roluga, who has spent years in Canada, said there were visa application tips and relevant immigration guidelines that would be necessary for individuals who desire to study in Canada. He stated, “Under Canadian Immigration laws, applicants who wish to study in Canada are viewed as intending immigrants until they can convince the consular officer that they are not. You must, therefore, be able to show that you have reasons to return to your home country. If you are a prospective undergraduate, you need to write about your specific intentions or promise of future employment, family or other relationships, educational objectives, grades, long-range plans and career prospects in your home country. Each person’s situation is different and there is no magic explanation or single document, which can guarantee visa issuance.”

The immigration expert urged students to have a good knowledge of their programs and how they would fit into their career plans, insisting, “If you are not able to articulate the reasons you decided to study a particular program in Canada, you may not succeed in convincing the consular officer that you are indeed planning to study, rather than to immigrate.”
