Visitor Visa Refusals

Three most important reasons for visitor visa application refusals:

Based on my experience through years of working and processing dozens of visitor visa applications, there are three main reasons for visitor visa refusals:

1. Lack of ties to Canada or home country:

“Tie” means family members. For married persons “tie” means “wife”, “husband” and “children”. For single persons “tie” means “father”, “mother”, “brother”, or “sister”. Therefore, the applicant should leave a family member behind while applying for a visitor visa. For example, a married person should apply alone if he, she send an application for all members of the family at once they will get refused. A single person should do the same and apply alone. So the officer could be convinced that the applicant has enough ties back home to return.
