Professional Visa Consultation
We offer our services to both individuals and businesses. From visitor to Canadian business visas, we cover the entire range of Canadian visa categories. We help you navigate the various legal, regulatory, and government requirements surrounding the process of working and immigrating to Canada.
We advise individuals who plan to live, work, or study in Canada and give support to businesses looking to expand their activities to Canada or who require visas and/or permits for their employees.
The first step in our process is always a personal consultation with an experienced and licensed Canadian immigration consultant. We specifically address your individual situation, clarify open questions, and discuss together which visa categories can be considered based on your personal requirements and what will work best for your needs.
If there are several options to choose from, we will discuss the advantages and disadvantages of each. You will receive a well-rounded individual assessment, an initial timetable for further action, and a summary of service and government fees.
Once all relevant points have been clarified, the visa process can begin. As licensed immigration consultants, we can offer comprehensive assistance, tailored to your needs – from work permit applications to submitting Permanent Resident applications.

is electronically linked to the traveller’s passport. It is valid for a period of up to five years, or until the expiry date of the traveller’s passport, whichever is earlier.
With a valid eTA, travellers can visit Canada for stays that are up to six months each.
