The standard fee for a consultation is USD $90 which covers a consultation up to 45 minutes in length either online or in person. Consultations are included with the purchase of any Uimmigrate service. If you purchase a consultation before you decide to use our services, the consultation fee, in most cases, can be credited to your service fees (see the individual application forms for exceptions).
Uimmigrate guarantees all its work. If you have reason to believe that we did not submit the best possible application on your behalf, you may request the contact information of the General Manager at Uimmigrate who will review your case. You are also offered the opportunity to give feedback at the conclusion of your application so that we can improve our service in the future.
Granting of a visa or status and the time required for processing this application is at the sole discretion of the government and not the RCIC. The Client(s) pay fees for accomplished services which are indicated in the retainer agreement. In case of rejection, the client does not have to pay for not accomplished services.
We appreciate any and all referrals. If you know someone who would benefit from our help, you will receive 15% off your next service. Discounts provided in relation to referrals are not valid in conjunction with any other discounts. Discounts in relation to referrals are only given when the referee has been confirmed to have retained Uimmigrate for a full-price service.
Retaining Uimmigrate commits you to using Uimmigrate as your representative for the service purchased and for communication with the Canadian government authority in relation to the service purchased. A signed retainer agreement must be provided to Uimmigrate prior to any work being completed on a file.
