Personal Consultation

Prior to pursuing any Canadian immigration application on your behalf, we recommend an initial assessment. The initial assessment is undertaken by way of face to face personal consultation at our office or via Skype.

Benefits of a Consultation

The consultation service we provide is based upon specialist knowledge of the immigration rules and procedures, which we use to assist our clients through simple and complex cases. If you need help with your Canadian immigration matters, we look forward to advising you on the options available to you under all categories of the immigration laws and giving you an honest and complete assessment on the merits and weaknesses of your case. 


A consultation with Pahl and Associates will allow us to check eligibility and legal merits based on information provided by the prospective client relating to the case. We will confirm whether a person should be eligible based on information provided by the individual bearing in mind the current law relevant to proposed visa application or immigration appeal. 


Once we have carried out an initial assessment, we will advise you on the chances of your success. You can then make an informed decision whether or not to instruct us to proceed with the application or service. We will not advise you to proceed with an application or appeal unless we believe you will have a reasonable chance of being successful.


Typical scenarios for which a personal consultation is recommended.

Complicated Cases

Every person's circumstances are different. It is crucial that in complicated cases where it is not clear whether or not you may qualify, we complete a more detailed assessment of your circumstances by way of a consultation in order to provide you with correct advice and the correct options that may be successful, before proceeding with a full application or service.

Clients who are not sure

If you think you may wish to proceed with a full application or service but you are not completely sure, you may prefer to have a personal consultation before committing to a more detailed and lengthy process.

Clients that only need to have a number of questions answered 

If do not wish to engage a specialist to prepare your application, but have a number of questions to ask about your specific circumstances, or would like to discuss a number of specific documents, then a personal consultation may be the best option for you.

Skype Consultation

If you live outside London or are unable to schedule a personal consultation, our detailed and confidential Skype consultation is ideal  option to discuss your immigration to Canada.


Our Skype consultation will get you the answers you need quickly. Our telephone consultation usually lasts 45 - 60 minutes. 


During the Skype Consultation will receive instant, personal attention from Mr. Pahl regarding all of your immigration questions. Mr. Pahl is a registered certified Immigration Consultant and is based in London  U. K.  

You will be able to discuss your particular situation to ensure that you understand the Canadian immigration requirements and allow Mr. Pahl to assess the legal merits of your proposed application. You will be able to raise any concerns that you may have about entering Canada and the process that Citizenship and Immigration Canada (CIC) uses for reviewing applications. We will give you the necessary advice on exactly how to proceed with your application.


The SKYPE method of initial consultation is the preferred choice for more than half our clients!

FEE: £125 payable before the consultation takes place and is paid via bank transfer.


Application Checking Service


Reduce the risk of refusal or of your applications being returned!

If you wish to prepare your own immigration applications without our full representation, we are happy to provide an Application Checking Service to help reduce the risk of refusal or of your applications being returned.


Consider the following statistics:


•At the Centralized Intake Office (CIO) Sydney 25% of applications are returned to applicants because they are incomplete and have to be resubmited (to the back of the queue)


•Once processed at CIO Sydney around 28% of applications are rejected. In many cases, the applications would have been approved if they had been better prepared.


•At the London visa office the application refusal rate averages around 30%. Again many of these refusals could have been avoided if the applications were better prepared


•Refusal by a visa office almost always results in the loss of the applicant's processing fees.


Having your applications checked by an expert prior to submission usually eliminates unnecessary mistakes and omissions and helps to identify more serious issues or possible refusal. Normally if your application is rejected you will forfeit your IRCC processing fees so if your application is not likely to be accepted (i.e. not meeting the basic criteria for the immigration class you are applying under) it is much better to know in advance.

If you have made an omission, however minor, this will normally result in your application being returned which effectively means you have wasted several months and have to resubmit your application and end up at the back of the queue!


Omissions and minor errors are common because as it isn’t always easy to understand what the questions on the application forms mean or to decipher the often conflicting and outdated information available on the internet.
