Hi,

My husband citizen and I am PR (soon to be citizen gave the test now waiting for the citizen process to move forward).

I am pregnant and want to have my niece (in Pakistan - age 20) come help with me during my pregnancy. I have the following questions

1. How can I have my niece come to Canada? What's the best method? Visit visa?

2. Can I have her come on nany visa? If yes then what's the process?

3.any other advice?

Thanks

Hi there,

According to Settlement.Org's article on the types of legal help you can get on an immigration application, an immigration consultant can help you with:
  • Immigration applications, such as sponsorship applications, refugee claims, and humanitarian and compassionate applications
  • Removal orders
  • Other cases that involve immigration law, processes or procedures
If you want a paid consultant to represent you to Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC), the Immigration and Refugee Board (IRB) or the Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA), the consultant must be in good standing with the College of Immigration and Citizenship Consultants (CICC).

For more information on the comparison, read Should I get help with my immigration application from an immigration consultant or lawyer?

We hope this information is helpful, and wish you the best luck.

Sincerely,

Your Settlement.Org team
