Why Do We Migrate?

People migrate for various diverse reasons. Most people migrate for economic, social, political, environmental, and educational or for health related reasons.

People moving for economic migration move to find better work, higher salaries or to follow a particular career path of their choice, while raising their quality of life standards.

Social migration is considered when you make a choice to move somewhere for a better quality of social life such as to be closer to a spouse, family member or a loved one.

People moving for political migration usually make this choice to escape political persecution, escape a war zone area, and move away from political instability which contributes to a harsh economy, higher unemployment rate, absence of human rights, and a high rate of crime and lack of security for you and for your loved ones.

Environmental causes of migration include natural disasters such as disastrous flooding, earth quakes, tsunami and other natural disasters.

Some people choose to migrate, to enhance their educational or career outlook and to explore other educational or personal development and career opportunities.

Some of the other common reasons people choose to migrate or are forced to migrate are for health reasons such as avoiding to live in a country that has a high rate of pollution, poor health infrastructure, poor medical, and health facilities. People want to move out of countries that are suffering from shortage in electricity, clean water, and from countries with a high rate of poverty or famine.

No matter what your reason may be, we at MigrationWest will be your guide at every step of the process.

How To Avoid Being A Victim Of Fraud?

While there have been many cases of immigration consultants providing services they are not qualified to offer, there are also many legitimate immigration consultants who provide valuable services; you just need to be a savvy consumer when shopping for an immigration consultant.

Here are some points you need to look in to before, during and after hiring a consultant:

If the consultant is offering long list of guarantees and the deal sounds too good to be true, steer clear right away until you have an eagles view on the consultants group that you are going to select.

Remember No one can guarantee results or a faster processing except for what is offered by the actual immigration justice department in writing.

Ask about qualifications. If the consultants claims to be qualified and licensed please do not hesitate to see hard copies of their accreditation letter or certificate.

Always ask for the license number associated to the services they are offering.

Get a written contract in English or if applicable, in your own language as well.

Look out and question for any hidden charges.

Request for a clear picture of the charges, all associated fees including postage fees related administrative charges, any legal or governmental charges and any unexpected charges that may be applied to your entire procedures.

Make sure you are clearly explained in details of the charges and the costs that will be charged by the government for any application, forms, documents and reports, including the consultant’s personal service fees.

Avoid paying full payments in advance.

Avoid Paying in cash, request for bank transfer and get a receipt.

Never sign a blank form or application. Make sure you understand what you are signing.

Always read the small prints and don’t be caught fooled by the large prints.

Do not be forced to make decisions on the spot, take the time to read the agreement and take the time to read and fully understand all terms and conditions including the procedures, process time frame and their refund policy.

Do not be afraid to ask as many questions you may have. Try to make a list of question before even visiting a consultant. It is even wiser to meet with the consultant several times before committing to a contract.

At the end of the day it is the job and the responsibility of a legitimate consultant to take the time and to advise you to make the right decision; this is the single strength that a consultant is appraised on.

Applicants are advised of this requirement when they apply. Most administrative processing is resolved within 60 days of the visa interview. When administrative processing is required, the timing will vary based on individual circumstances of each case. Visa applicants are reminded to apply early for their visa, well in advance of the anticipated travel date.
