Permanent Residence via an Asylum Application
Applying to immigrate to Canada through any of the provincial nominee programs or Express Entry is not as easy as one would expect. Unfortunately, there are so many candidates waiting for their turn that many applicants just ended up giving up. Others have searched for other options, one of those options being the Asylum application.
Please note that at the Canadian Immigration Counseling Center, we can help you submit an application for asylum. This process requires extensive planning and knowledge, therefore, it is important to seek professional advice before initiating any proceeding in this matter.
Applying for a permanent residence visa via an asylum application could be a very interesting option. However, before taking into consideration this particular option, please note that the applicant must first apply for a tourist visa to visit Canada. Once the applicant has been approved to visit Canada, he or she will then be able to initiate an asylum application.
Asylum applications in Canada can also be initiated by those who hold a US tourist Visa, through the US/Canada border. If you are a holder of a US tourist visa and are interested in initiating a refugee claim in Canada, we will be more than glad to assist you.
