Choose Your Agent Wisely
Have you ever faced the situation where your visa was denied and you couldn’t accurately point out the reason for the refusal? Have you ever felt cheated or duped by your visa agent on whom you placed your unconditional trust? Have you ever felt looted by the visa professionals to whom you paid lacs of money in the hopes of getting a visa? Have you ever felt like you were a part of scamming the authorities because your visa agents forged the documents?
If yes, then my dear reader you must know that you are not alone in this racket as many before you have suffered the same fate due to which their visa was denied and many have even faced the humiliation of being named as a threat to the destination country.

Why Do You Need to Tread With Caution?
When applying for a visa and preparing yourself for the interviews it is extremely important that you tread with caution. Let us understand why.
1. Negative Entry
It is important that you are aware of the consequences of visa rejection. Once your visa has been denied, you automatically have a negative entry in the immigration records which further reduces your chances of getting a visa in the future.
2. A Threat to National Security
When your visa has been refused and the stamp of denied has been put on your application, there are chances that you might be named or more accurately put, shamed as a threat to national security of the destination country. This humiliation can be a lot to bear.
3. Deceiving Agents
There have many instances in the past where the applicant was denied the visa because the visa agents who filled the applications were inexperienced and did not understand the requirements of the applications correctly. The applicant was thus deceived by these agents and failed to get a visa.
4. Sunk Cost
The fee paid towards the visa applications is non-refundable whether your application has been accepted or rejected because the fee includes the money paid towards processing the applications. Thus, if you are denied the visa, then the money that you pay to the agents and for the applications is all lost.
5. Excruciating Appeals
Once your visa is denied you have only two options to remedy the refusal. You can either appeal the decision or apply for a fresh application. The process of appealing is not easy and is time-consuming which can take a psychological toll on some of the applicants.
It is thus very important that you choose your agent wisely after thorough scrutiny into the qualification and authentication of the agent.
