Filipinos in UAE warned against immigration visa fraud

One of the goals that many Filipinos have as they work in the UAE is the opportunity to migrate towards other countries like Canada and Australia. However, they are also very wary of possible attempts of scrupulous individuals and companies who might take advantage of their hopes and dreams.

Here are several tips to keep in mind when you begin your steps in processing your immigration visa:

Check Authorizations

Immigration consultants you approach should be authorized by bodies like ICCRC (Canada), MARA (Australia), OISC (UK), etc. for the respective country that you wish to migrate to. Even if they claim they are ICCRC certified, visit the official ICCRC website and check on the list if they are registered. It is absolutely mandatory for your own safety and security that you choose the consultancies that are certified. ICCRC is a national regulatory body of Canada that serves and protects the public by overseeing licensed immigration consultants.

Immigration Advisors at Vision report directly to Ms. Shanaz Lakhani – ICCRC Immigration Lawyer. We are indemnified solicitors which means our clients are protected from any malpractices or fraud.

Eligibility

The first step in immigration is eligibility and not everyone qualifies. If your consultant is making a promise of Permanent Residency (PR) regardless of your profile, then it is a scam. Every candidate must meet minimum requirements to be deemed eligible to apply. Age, Education, Work Experience, Language Proficiency, and Adaptability are the core areas where you must meet the standards set by the Canadian Govt.

If your consultant is giving you 100% guarantee in the approval of your profile, you can be sure it is a scam. The approval of your application is up to the govt.

Are You Being Promised Job Offers or Work Permits?

Immigration consultants claiming to get you ready-made jobs are most probably a scam. A legitimate immigration consultant may be able to set you up with recruitment agencies in Canada or give you training in attending interviews and other soft skills, but it is almost impossible to give you a guaranteed offer letter in your hand in return for signing up with them.

It is also important to note that you do not need a job offer from Canada to apply for PR. You will get your PR based on the points of your profile scores. Be alert and do not fall for these tall claims.

Check the Contract

If the consultant asks to be paid to him/her personally without any kind of contract or agreement, it is 100% fraud. All consultancies require to provide a retainer agreement signed and sealed by the ICCRC lawyer.

Visit the Consultancy

Visit and meet the team. Go through the certifications and testimonials. Check the legitimacy and make an informed decision.
