Moving to a different country to work or study requires you to undergo a tedious procedure of immigration application. However, as a layperson who is not familiar with the immigration application procedure, the intricacies and challenges of the immigration process can throw you off guard and, worse even, sabotage your chances of success. 

Hiring the services of a reliable immigration consultant certainly takes some weight off the applicant’s shoulders. A professional immigration consultant will ensure that your application is submitted correctly in the first attempt and improve your chance of success. They will help you with the entire process and provide help if you’re stuck in a complicated situation. However, picking the right immigration consultant can be challenging with a range of options to choose from. 

To help sift through your options and make the best selection, here’s a list of the top five things to look for in an immigration consultant.

1. Knowledge of Canadian Immigration Law
When researching immigration consultants, you should never make payments in a rush. Before proceeding further with the visa process, it is vital to verify the consultant’s expertise. Find out if they have adequate knowledge of Canadian Immigration Law. You should preferably ask them about the legalities, timeline, documentation, and costs of the process. Additionally, please ensure you are open about your requirements.

2. Outstanding Communication Skills
Look for an immigration consultant who establishes a friendly and interpersonal connection with you when you interact with them. These professionals will actively listen and understand your unique situation and offer an accessible communication channel to convey the necessary procedures that you may need to follow. Good communication skills are paramount.

3. Proficiency in Second Languages
To be a professional immigration consultant, individuals must be fluent in English and should preferably be comfortable communicating in another language to be able to help clients from various backgrounds. The ability to speak a second language is an important asset for any immigration consultant. 

4. Credentials
Whether you believe it or not, the process of migrating to another country is going to be complicated.

RCIC are consultants who have completed an immigration consultant diploma program. Finally, To find out if the Canadian immigration consultant you are thinking of hiring has completed the educational requirement and is a regulated immigration consultant, visit the CICC website and look them up.
