Are you trying to know specific Canada Immigration refusal reasons?
Generally, when applications do not meet the various criteria set out in the Regulatory Framework, Policies, Manual as set by the Canadian High Commissions and consulates, the applicant faces visa rejection. The rejection letter holds crucial information about the reasons why the application gets rejected, but it is mentioned in a general format that does not cover detailed and specific information on refusal reasons.
In such scenarios, you can refer to your CAIPS/FOSS/GCMS notes which specify detailed and specific information on visa refusal reasons including the visa officer’s comments. This kind of specification on visa refusal reasons can help you to know the exact specific things that went wrong when you had applied for the visa.
The most common Canada Immigration refusal reasons can be as follows:
1. Omission of certain supporting documents:
Canada immigration visa can be rejected due to negligence of required documents. With the help of GCMS notes, you can know specifically which of the documents are omitted or neglected and accordingly you can proceed further for the re-application process, making sure that you have attached all the required documents.
2. Health-related discrepancies:
All applicants for Canadian immigration and their dependents are required to take a medical examination with a doctor recognized by Citizenship and Immigration Canada (CIC). Certain health issues may result in refusal.
For example, applicants for immigration who require medication for Diabetes or Hepatitis A could be deemed to be a potential burden on Canada’s universal healthcare system, and CIC reserves the right to refuse an otherwise eligible application for immigration on health grounds. The Visa officer will issue the rejection letter based on health grounds, but the detailed comments of the visa officers would not be covered in the rejection letter. However, with the help of GCMS notes you can know what specific medical related issues the Visa Officers noticed while assessing your profile.
You can review those comments and other related information on your visa refusal from GCMS Notes and accordingly you can prepare for the visa re-application process.
3. Any missing financial support document:
While assessing your visa application, the visa officer also verifies all kinds of required documents that are important for applying for that particular type of Canadian Visa. Citizenship and Immigration Canada (CIC) can refuse the application if any of the financial documents are missing. The rejection letter will only give you a hint that you were refused due to financial reasons. The applicants can order GCMS notes to know specifically which of the financial documents were missing. The applicant can take care that all the missing financial documents that are mentioned in his/her GCMS Notes are submitted properly at the time of reapplication for Canada Immigration.
4. Missing documents:
Citizenship and Immigration Canada (CIC) provides a neat list of the documents that are required for applying for any particular type of Canadian Visas. CIC attempts to make the immigration process faster for applicants by imposing deadlines for the submission of certain forms and documents. The applicants are required to cross-check the required documents checklist while applying for any type of Canadian Visas and also to make sure that they submit the right documents before the deadline specified by the CIC to ensure a successful visa grant.
If the applicants fail to submit any documents, the visa officers put their applications on hold and ask them to submit the missing documents by specifying the deadlines. Sometimes it happens that the applicants do not receive this information due to certain reasons. In this case, as their application is put on hold, the application process gets delayed more than required.
At this stage, applicants can order GCMS Notes to know why it is taking more time to process the application. GCMS Notes will give applicants the stage-by-stage status of their application process and will also mention the current status of the application along with its reason. Applicants can know these facts with the help of GCMS Notes and can submit the required documents if the deadline has not passed away.
In case the deadline is passed away, the visa officers reject the visa applications. The visa rejection letter will inform you that you were rejected due to missing documents. But the GCMS Notes will tell you specific details on which documents you missed to submit. Based on this information, you can re-apply by making sure that you have attached those missing documents.
5. Applying without checking the eligibility criteria:
There are more than 60 immigration programs offered by Canada. Depending on several factors, such as a person’s age, education, net worth, occupation and work experience, he or she may be eligible for one, more than once, or none of these programs. A superficial glance at the criteria for a given program might lead to an applicant believing that he or she is eligible, but it may be the case that he or she is not, in fact, eligible for that program. Some applicants see their applications being refused because they are not eligible for the program for which they have applied, even though they may have been eligible for another Canadian immigration program. With the help of a rejection letter, you can know that you were refused because you were not eligible for that particular type of Canada Immigration program.
Further to know exactly what criteria you didn’t meet; you can check out your GCMS Notes. It includes detailed comments of the visa officers on your ineligibility which will give you more idea on why you are not eligible for that program.
Based on this information, you can make sure that if you cannot satisfy that requirement in any form, then you should go for another program rather than re-applying for the same program. GCMS Notes will act as a genuine guide for you when you re-apply in case a visa is refused due to missing documents.
These are the general reasons but with help of GCMS Notes, you will know more specific reasons related to your application refusal. GCMS is a system used by the Canadian Immigration and Citizenship (CIC) department of Canada to store and access the follow-ups and processing information related to your visa application. You can check the GCMS Notes to know about what is happening with your visa application file.
In the GCMS notes, you can get to know your entire file history including the visa officer’s complete comments on the reason why your Canadian immigration was rejected. If you are very well aware of the problems that resulted in your Canada Immigration Visa refusal, you can re-apply for Canada after fixing all those problems. Thus, make sure that you do not leave any chance for the visa officer to refuse your visa when you re-apply. And GCMS Notes can help you to know about the problems in detailed scope.
