VIKING IMMIGRATION CONSULTANCY SERVICES
Immigration to Canada is more difficult and nuanced as one might think. Especially now with COVID-19 and the different public policies. We at Viking Immigration are on top of all the changes in immigration policies and believe it is important to have a comprehensive immigration plan in place BEFORE submitting your first application to IRCC.
Viking Immigration represents Canadian immigration clients inside Canada and all over the world.

WHAT IS THE STORY BEHIND VIKING IMMIGRATION?
Seven years ago, Eline Mets was where you are, after coming to Canada from Estonia under the Working Holiday Program.
"While exploring my options for Permanent Residency, the first consultation with a lawyer ended up with them outlining all of the things that I do not qualify for and promising to send me a follow-up e-mail that never came," says Eline Mets, founder of Viking Immigration.
Another lawyer who she eventually ended up hiring was so busy they did not include a submission letter with her work permit extension application. This resulted in a refusal letter where Ms. Mets was instructed to leave Canada immediately, which she did.
At the same time she was researching and studying the IRPA, IRPR and regulations as much as she could to try to help herself, since she was not hearing back from the lawyer.
Eline Mets: "I felt so alone in this process and started thinking that if I was a Regulated Canadian Immigration Consultant..
What would I do differently?"
After returning to Canada and receiving her Permanent Residency, Eline Mets studied Immigration: Laws, Policies and Procedures at University of British Columbia.
She received her RCIC license in February 2019 and has been practicing ever since - making sure to make clients' peace of mind her company's priority. And this is how Viking Immigration was born.
WE'VE GOT YOUR BACK
Applying for any permit to immigrate to Canada can be very frustrating.
Especially the waits - and the decision can be a life-changing one.
We are with you every step of the way.
After all, the entire reason we got into this business is because we never want anybody to have such a stressful experience with immigrating to Canada as Eline Mets did.
DO YOU WANT TO SAVE MONEY BY APPLYING BY YOURSELF?
HIRING AN EXPERIENCED CONSULTANT IS ACTUALLY MORE COST-EFFECTIVE
IN THE LONG RUN
The most common mistake we have seen people making over the years is not taking the process of Canadian Immigration seriously (mostly due to lack of information and knowledge regarding the various nuances of the application process).
A typical scenario we encounter from individual applicants - they use any means necessary to come to Canada (sometimes even knowingly or unknowingly committing misrepresentation to be eligible for a program), then they work at jobs or take school programs that will not help them extend their stay. After getting themselves in an even bigger pickle by following advice from internet forums, they finally find their way to us. This usually happens when their status has already expired or is about to expire. Helping them at this point is possible, but it is going to be more complicated and costly.
This is why we recommend getting a consultation with a licensed and regulated immigration consultant as soon as you have a plan on either coming to Canada or you are already here and decide to explore options to stay longer or want to make your stay permanent by becoming a Canadian Permanent Resident.
