5 Reasons Why Visitor Visas Are Refused

There are various reasons why an application for a visitor visa may be refused. The most common reason for a refusal is failing to establish to the immigration officer that you will leave Canada at the end of your stay. An acceptance or refusal depends on how the officer perceives your application. Immigration officers will refuse a visa if they have grounds to believe the applicant will not leave Canada at the end of their authorized stay. The burden of proof is on the applicant to establish they meet all the requirements for a visitor visa.
