Can you have a study permit refusal decision repealed if you applied from NYC in 2012?

If you apply for a study permit in Canada and are refused, you do have options. There are several reasons why a Canadian study permit might be refused, and when you receive notification from Citizenship and Immigration Canada that your application was refused the reasons should be explained to you. However, you may have made an error on your application or not included enough information for the visa officers to make a fair decision based on your application. If so, read on: Study permit

Options for appealing an immigration refusal

There are three main options when attempting to have an immigration refusal repealed. They include:

1. You may be able to make a request for restoration to the CPC, or case processing centre.

2. You may be eligible to appeal your application refusal to the IAD or Immigration Adjudication Division.

3. You may be eligible to appeal your application refusal to the Federal Court of Canada.

Which option works best in your situation can depend on your personal circumstances and the reasons for your application being denied. Either way, you could only have as few as 30 days between being notified and no longer being able to appeal your immigration refusal. Appealing an immigration refusal is complicated, and strong arguments will need to be made on your behalf to convince immigration officials that your application needs a second chance.
