Planning to Immigrate to the U.S. or Canada in 2022? Read This!

If you’re planning to immigrate to the United States or Canada in 2022, you want to be as prepared as you can possibly be.

When you’re on the verge of achieving your immigration dream, you want to make sure nothing stands in your way. Therefore, you must seek out help from experienced professionals who have successfully helped others achieve the goal of living and working legally in the U.S. and Canada and can do the same for you. Relying on qualified professionals will ensure that you consider, and prepare for, any and all potential obstacles that you may encounter along the way.

Here are three of the most important steps to take if you are planning to immigrate to the United States or Canada in the upcoming year.

Hire an Immigration Attorney (if Canada is your destination, you can also consider hiring an Immigration Consultant)

One of the best things you can do if you are planning to immigrate to the United States or Canada is to hire an immigration attorney (if immigrating to either), or an immigration consultant (if immigrating to Canada).

These professionals provide you peace of mind, and even more importantly, expert capabilities to make your immigration process easier to navigate and more likely to be successful. Furthermore, an attorney or consultant (if immigrating to Canada) will save you time and energy.

Attorneys can provide sound professional advice, help ensure you accurately complete all necessary documents, protect your rights, catch potential trouble early, and help you navigate any complex situation, such as previous refusals or other concerns.

At Visa Business Plans we are big fans of working with qualified attorneys and immigration consultants (in the case of Canada) and discourage any client that intends not to. Why? Because for 13+ years we have seen first-hand the difference a knowledgeable professional in law can make in our clients’ cases. Additionally, because we have seen many horror stories of clients that did not use an attorney for the sake of “saving money”. Not only have these clients spent more money in the end, but their immigration cases have been denied, with some losing the ability to enter the U.S. or Canada permanently due to a mishandling of their visa petition.

Get the Best Advice You Can Afford

Another important step to take before immigrating to the United States or Canada is to hire the best advice that you can pay for.

Remember, you don’t know what you don’t know. And, no matter how well-versed you are, there’s always going to be things out there that you don’t think of when it comes to immigration matters: contracts, taxes, licenses, labor laws, and so on. Therefore, it’s vital to get the best help you can so you can rest assured knowing that experienced professionals are thinking of the things you won’t think of.

At Visa Business Plans, we use a holistic approach that goes beyond writing plans; we focus on our client’s success and connect them with the right professionals for their specific needs at no cost to them.

Plan, Plan, Plan

When it comes to immigration, there is no such thing as too much planning. Careful planning and a commitment to following the plan can make all of the difference in successfully completing the immigration process or not.

Make sure you create a timeline and stick to it. Carefully plan for every possible contingency along the way and plan for ways to navigate the unexpected curveballs. Commit to your plan. And be sure to seek out professional help in your planning process.
