Another Client Success Story, Thanks to Ackah Law's All-Inclusive Application Packet

What's at risk if you DON'T hire a business immigration lawyer? Canada's border is closed to all but essential workers, and some family members and students. It is left to the discretion of the border agents to determine if someone is an essential worker and should be allowed to enter Canada during the COVID pandemic. We're proud to share another Ackah Law Success Story!

Our client messaged us:

I got in successfully!! Yeay!!!!

he customs agent did question me thoroughly for about an hour and your specific and “all inclusive” application packet was the key to my successful TWO YEAR permit being granted.

Our dedicated team of highly experienced immigration lawyers and legal professionals provide proactive immigration legal advice for businesses and individuals who want to move or travel for work, education or personal reasons. In this case, we helped our client create a full, customized all-inclusive immigration application package including all documents she would need to cross the border into Canada. We prepped her on the questions they would be asking at the airport in order to board the plane, and in Canada after deplaning.

Canada Immigration Minister Marco Mendicino has said that immigration is vital to Canada’s economic recovery during and after the pandemic.

The Canada border agent told our client she was not technically an “essential worker” and due to COVID, they are issuing very few work permits. However, after reviewing the application packet Ackah Law prepared for our client, the customs agent realized she is an asset to Canada at this critical time of economic recovery, and not a liability, and granted a 2-year work permit.

IRCC Is Open and Processing Immigration Applications

Throughout the pandemic, Canada's IRCC (Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada) has remained open and continued to process immigration applications, but at a slower pace than normal. Wait times on immigration applications are long enough now - but they're only going to get longer! Beat the backlog, and start your immigration application today!

Have an Immigration Lawyer On Your Side
Don't attempt to cross the border into Canada without making sure your paperwork is in order. Immigration law is becoming more complex and challenging every day. Immigration applications can be refused due to minor oversights and omissions that delay or negatively impact your business plans. By not using a lawyer you put your business at risk.

COVID's impact on Canada immigration has affected individuals, families, big corporations and small business owners, and there can be confusion at the border or when trying to board a flight to Canada. An experienced immigration professional can help qualified travelers cross the border into Canada, and help prepare your immigration application.
