Travel and Tours accredted to ensure applicants fulfill all travel requirements and even those with rich travel track record, mostly owners of businesses with good finacial standings had their applications turned down for no aparent reasons.
So far, over 36 applicants from these Travel and Tours have been denied entry clearnace despite meeting all requirements.
Copies of the refusal letters sighted gave resaons as your travel history, length of proposed stay in Canada, purpose of visit, personal assets and finacial status, low finacncial standings to travel have been cited as resaons for the refusal.
A spokesperson of one of the Travel company hinted that “ It is clear that based on the reasons for refusal, the visa section did not even look at the applications, documents and passports to determine whether they are financially sound or have travel experience. They just attach the refusal letters to the applications.
“In fact, what is happening is worrying. The visa section of the Embassy must be up and recall all those they have denied indiscriminately and allow them to travel to support our national team.
“As far as we know, countries who bid to host FIFA World Cups are obliged to issue Visas to applicants who meet the requirements and not to deny without any just reason, she added.”
