Rejections details

Sep 2017 1st Visa Rejection- Visa officer Comments

You have not satisfied me that you would leave Canada at the end of your stay as a temporary
resident. In reaching this decision, I considered several factors, including:
-immigration status in country of residence
-Current employment situation

I didn't attach any invitation letter while applying for first time and also didn't attach any documents from my employer

I made covering letter while applying 2nd Time in response of above rejection points
- for immigration status I responded that in UAE we are getting 2 yrs resident visa as per UAE law and my contract with current employer is permanent. I have attached all the visa copies of 2 yrs with continue renewal.
- I have attached the invitation letter from my friend who is Canadian resident( Pakistani national and now Canadian national after immigration)
-In response to Current employment status I have attached my current permanent employment contact). After submitting above all documents I got the 2nd rejection as follow

Do you have family in Canada?

I would speak to a RCIC (immigration consultant) or a lawyer about this. They may be able to help you to put forward a better application. Once the border has re-opened, of course.

Thanks Riley for your response.

No, I don't have any relatives in canada. As I mentioned earlier while applying 2nd time I attached the invitation letter received from my friend who recently almost 2 yrs ago got immigration.

As soon you let me where I am lacking and TRV visa opens again, I will reapply. As I really wants to visit Canada, it's kind of dream of mine.

Thanks again. Stay blessed stay safe

Well I'm just the forum admin, so I don't know myself. An RCIC or lawyer who has helped many people get visitor visas may be able to help you figure it out.

You should wait until the border re-opens, though.
