DOHA OVER 100 visa-seekers, including investors, businessmen and skilled professionals, received landing papers /visas for the US, Canada and Australia at a one-day awareness seminar organised by World Wide Immigration Consultancy Services (WWICS) on Monday.
The WWICS clients will begin journey to the destination of their choice soon.
“I have always dreamt of settling in Canada ever since I was a teenager. I thank WWICS for helping me to realise my dreams and making immigration such a hassle-free experience.
The staff were always available for queries. They really rendered satisfactory assistance,” said Himoda Chandralochan Jaykanth, one of the recipients of landing papers.
Another client Priyantha Nuwan Goonsekara said, “I was apprehensive of settling down in Australia before I approached WWICS. The officials did not only provide immigration services but also guided us to which programme and country would be suitable for individuals. I am very happy with the services I received for WWICS.” To Ahmed, another beneficiary of WWICS’ services, the visa would pave the way for him to set up his private business in the US.
“I always wanted to invest in the US and now I have got a chance to run my own business of my dream and I thank WWICS for helping me to make a good choice that would make my business prosper and help my family get the US Green Card. I will now settle in the US with my entire family,” Ahmed said.
Prior to the investiture ceremony in which the applicants were handed the landing papers, a high-level team of immigration and resettlement experts from the WWICS enlightened the audience about the opportunities available in developed countries like Canada, the USA, Australia, the UK and other parts of Europe.
The experts provided customised solutions for work permit and information on various avenues on employment and career opportunities, attractive job offers for aspirant and their spouses as well as other resettlement options.
Immigration and resettlement panel from the WWICS at the event comprised Assistant Director for Global Placement Services, Canada Brandon Miller, Australian Consultant and MARA agent Gurpreet Sandhu, WWICS Vice-President Deepak Kochhar, WWICS Qatar Branch Manager Anwar Karim and Sandeep Chauhan, a business immigration expert from WWICS.
Kochhar said, “Canada is the most sought-after destination for immigration and the Provincial Nominee Programmes have made resettling in the country a fast-track and relaxed process. These programmes help investors, skilled workers and professionals to reach prosperous provinces such as Saskatchewan, Ontario, Alberta, Nova Scotia, New Brunswick and Manitoba and get permanent residency status easily.” Talking about the business immigration programmes, Chauhan said, “Apart from various business programmes in Canada, Australia and the US, we have recently launched a new programme for Georgia, a promising destination for farmers, businessmen and investors. The US EB-5 Investor visa is a top-notch business programme, which is ideal for those who wish to settle in the US. This programme is an easy and fast pathway to a US Green Card.” On his part, Miller highlighted the demand for international students in Canada, the USA, Australia and New Zealand.
He said the students have the option of applying for permanent residency upon completion of their courses.
Talking about immigration prospects in Australia, Sandhu said that the lowering of pass marks from 65 to 60 points and introduction of the SkillSelect Program has brightened the prospects of those wanting to settle in the country.
