Parents and Grandparents Sponsorship Appeal


Overseas Immigration Visa Posts assess applications submitted by sponsors on the behalf of their parents/grandparents and render decisions: positive or negative. If a visa officer is not satisfied based on the information provided by the sponsor and his/her parents/grandparents, (s)he refuses the application based on various reasons e.g. lack of income (MNI), criminality grounds; for further information on section 36 of IRPA, medical grounds; for further information on section 38 of IRPA, and misrepresentation; for further information on section 40 of IRPA, etc. According to section 63(1) of the Immigration and Refugee Protection Act (IRPA) a sponsor has a right to appeal to the Immigration Refugee Board (IRB) when a visa officer refuses a parents/grandparents application.

To refute the decision of the visa officer, the sponsor must file the Notice of Appeal within thirty (30) days of receiving the decision. For further information regarding the Appeals process, you can contact our office. Our firm has a great deal of experience before the Immigration and Appeal Division (IAD) of Immigration and Refugee Board. We are highly capable of evaluating your situation to determine your chances before the Immigration Appeal Division.
