Sub: Application in response to visitor visa refused on 09/05/2022 (W306502373)

Dear Sir/Madam,

I am Jatin Mahal, an Indian national bearing passport number T8954847, thank you for allowing me to represent my case one more time. Through this application, I intend to bring to your kind notice that I want to visit my beloved wife in Canada who is pursuing a Graduate Certificate in Healthcare Management from Cape Breton University which will conclude by <add year>. Since she left for Canada in <add year>, we have been living apart and filling the emotional gap through voice-over calls, video conferencing, chats, emails, or messages. However, at the end of each day, we find each other physically distant which is emotionally draining. Although I am equally thankful to the technology for providing us with the privilege to at least see or talk to each other over VOIP. With a heavy heart, I admit that I have been missing her so dearly and vice versa. We never thought that it would be so emotionally exhausting for both of us. Hence, to comfort her and do equal justice to my feelings, I have decided to visit her in person and stay by her side while she continues her study program and other endeavours. Unfortunately, my previous visa application was rejected due to the following reasons:

  • I am not satisfied that you will leave Canada at the end of your stay, as stipulated in subsection 200(1) of the IRPR, based on your family ties in Canada and in your country of residence.
  • I am not satisfied that you will leave Canada at the end of your stay, as stipulated in subsection 200(1) of the IRPR, based on the purpose of your visit.
  • I am not satisfied that you will leave Canada at the end of your stay, as stipulated in subsection 200(1) of the IRPR, based on your immigration status.

Purpose of visit

I am a qualified mechanical engineer who is also MBA qualified and possess great working exposure in engineering products, product management and sales and marketing. I am temporarily residing in the UAE for the fulfillment of my professional duties. My work visa will expire in November 2022 which gives me the impetus to utilize my time and spend it with my beloved wife who is homesick in a foreign land. However, due to my esteemed qualifications and work experience, I am sure that I would not pose any liability either to my wife or Canada. I will be able to find myself a decent part-time opportunity to keep myself busy as well as earn my living expenses, rather liberate my wife so she can purely focus on her studies and not have to do any part-time job. However, I am aiming to visit Canada only to support my wife and I do not see my future in this country due to having the joint goal of settling with my wife in India permanently.

As far as our relationship is concerned, I lost my heart to my wife in the second year of my college in 2010. She was such a heart-throbbing diva that I couldn’t take my eyes off her beautiful face. Slowly and gradually, we started coming close and we didn’t realize when our chit-chat through occasional phone calls converted to romantic conversion. This is when we smelled love brewing and confessed to each other. With the consent of our parents, our long-term love affair was solemnized into holy nuptials in 2020 in the presence of our near and dear ones. I was so happy to welcome her as a wife that I cannot thank the universe enough for this blessing. I felt like the luckiest man on earth. However, slowly as we adjusted to our married life, my wife revealed her intentions to study further and contribute to the Indian healthcare sector. I have always been her biggest motivator and supporter. Hence, I backed her with all my courage though it wasn’t easy for me to let her go for even a second. But I knew I cannot also hold her back from growth and progression, especially when it is going to elevate our social status as a couple. Hence, with all my support and encouragement, she flew to Canada to fulfill her education goals. Now when I see her disappointed, depressed, and homesick, it irks me a lot because I can feel her, being in the same boat. We carry immense love for each other yet being unable to see, touch, and feel one another makes us weak in our knees and all we do a lot of the time is cry on the phone. Hence, being a sorted person, I made a wiser decision to why not visit my wife and give her the most comfortable living that I can create through my presence by her side until her study program completes. As a result, I am devoted to bringing subtle change to her foreign life and adding a personal touch by giving her a homelike environment as I shift with her.

Family ties in Canada

I do not have any family ties in Canada except my wife. Hence, we will make the most of our time together while we are in Canada. We will especially explore the Canadian outskirts during our spare time. I am also excited about visiting places like Stanley Park, and VanDusen Botanical Garden to unleash the beauty of Canada. I am sure that she will love all of this because she has lost touch with normal family life for quite some time. It will be a perfect breather for her and act as a therapy to sustain herself well in her studies and fulfill her educational objectives. Likewise, for me, it will be the most cherished time to support my wife and garner equal love and respect from her.

Incentives to return to India

Soon as she completes her studies, we will return home, no matter what. We have our revered parents and extended families to support. Both of our parents are growing old and they will need our physical presence in future. Moreover, we have planned to increase our family as a couple after coming to India so we can celebrate our happiness with our family members and give our children on board a fulfilled life in the presence of their grandparents. I foresee my professional future in India due to already having enormous exposure while part-time exposure in Canada will add to my professional profile which will give me a thriving comeback home. Hence, I am secure in the way I anticipate employment opportunities for myself in India. Therefore, I do not find a single reason to stay back in Canada, especially when my wife’s and my goals are neatly aligned towards returning home and we do not share any family ties in Canada, too. Moreover, having voluminous assets lying with both of our families/in-laws, we are bound to return home to take care of the family riches that our older generations have nurtured so far.

Financial status

Having expressed my intentions to visit Canada, I also find myself equally accountable to furnish all legitimate documentation and evidence to support my financial status. With this, I assure you that neither my wife nor I will become a liability to Canada. We have enough funds and properties to cater to our financial freedom. As per the bank statements and GIC, my living expenses are well covered while I possess decent savings amounting to CAD<add figure> generated from my income. My family’s total assets values up to CAD 3,19,265.39. Moreover, my father has assured me to provide financial support as and when required by me/us throughout my stay in Canada. Hence, I am sure that my financial status qualifies me for staying with my wife without financially draining her at any given cost.

Immigration status

I am temporarily residing in the UAE until my work visa expires in November 2022. Post this, I would leave this country and return to my homeland, all in the hope to pack my bags and reunite with my wife making the best utilization of the lean period in my professional life.


I, hereby, reiterate that I have fulfilled all the formalities concerning my candidacy as a genuine temporary entrant. Also, I have read the Canadian Immigration Rules and I promise to abide by the same. I have vaccinated myself against Covid-19 to make myself an eligible fit for flying across international borders. I, therefore, put before you my earnest request for allowing me a valid visa grant so I can reunite with my wife and support her in my full capacity. Thank you in advance.

Yours Sincerely,

Jatin Mahal
