Immigration Appeal Processes Published By Battista Smith Migration Law Group On Their New Blog Post
Toronto-based Battista Smith Migration Law Group offers a new blog post mapping out processes for immigration appeals in Canada.

BattistaSmith Migration Law Group is pleased to announce a new blog post titled “How Do I Appeal An Immigration Refusal Decision to Canada?” The article, containing the most recent information about the process of an immigration appeal, is detailed and descriptive about terms, categories, and steps to take for each of the categories involved. Several types of immigration applications are discussed, along with the process for each type of appeal. Appeals may be conducted in-country or out-of-country.

The Federal Court of Canada is the body to pursue judicial reviews for application refusals for visitor visas, student visas, work permits, inadmissibility decisions (including medical and criminal inadmissibility), and Humanitarian and Compassionate Grounds denials. Visitor visa and student visa refusals are often disseminated in a general decision letter. In this case, the applicant should request specific written reasons from the Visa Officer before preparing and filing a new application. This allows specific concerns to be addressed in a new application.

In the case of refusal for immigration due to overseas sponsorship or residency obligation, appeals can be made to the Immigration Appeal Division (IAD). The Federal Court of Canada handles in-Canada sponsorship challenges. 

Rejected refugee claims may be appealed to the Refugee Appeal Division (RAD) of the Immigration and Refugee Board. The RAD can grant protection or can order a new hearing. Denial of the RAD’s appeal can be challenged on judicial review by the Federal Court of Canada. The blog post defines the timeframe for filing for an appeal, as well as the time involved before final adjudication is made.
