Nairobi agent has left me jobless, broke and banned from Canada for 5 years

Co-Op post

A Kenyan who recently got banned from Canada for 5 years has come out to share how he landed himself in trouble.

This Kenyan says that although he was jobless, he thought it would be a good idea to use all his savings to pay one of the agents Nairobi who have been promising Canadian visit visas.

His intention was to seek for asylum once he landed in Canada in order to access the benefits that come with seeking asylum before his claims would be heard and determined.

“I’m so stressed considering the fact I put my all into this and I don’t have a job  I’m really torn between giving up and pursuing further,” he said.

He revealed that in response to his application, the Canadian visa office in Nairobi had slapped him with a ban and declared that he would be ineligible to enter Canada for a period of five years.

“I am not satisfied that you have truthfully answered all questions in the documents you have submitted in support of your application, as required by subsection 16(1) of the IRPA,” the visa officer had stated.

“Specifically, I am not satisfied that the following information is truthful: you failed to declare the use of a representative for your application.”

This failure, the visa officer went on, was what resulted in the applicant getting banned from Canada for 5 years.

“You have been found inadmissible to Canada in accordance with paragraph 40(1)(a) of the Immigration and Refugee Protection Act (IRPA) for directly or indirectly misrepresenting or withholding material facts relating to a relevant matter that induces or could induce an error in the administration of the IRPA,” the visa officer stated.

“In accordance with paragraph A40(2)(a), you will remain inadmissible to Canada for a period of five years from the date of this letter or from the date a previous removal order was enforced.”

In Kenya, there are no immigration consultants or lawyers who have been authorized by the IRCC to conduct immigration representation or applications on behalf of applicants. This means that using an unlicensed agent in Nairobi is a risk that get you banned from Canada for 5 years.

However, there are two Kenyan Canadian citizens living in Canada who are licensed Regulated Canadian Immigration Consultants (RCIC). The two are Loise Githiga of Milele Immigration Services and Mbula Kalorina of Makland Canadian Immigration Services.

Other than the two, there are also many other licensed representatives in Canada whose license credentials and firms can be verified by applicants on the CICC register of licensed RCICs online for free.
