Immigration Law Firm

Every day, people from all over the world take a step towards fulfilling what, for some, is a life-long dream: Citizenship. Being a Citizen of Australia/Canada or any other country is often seen as the pinnacle of freedom and people have gone to great lengths to achieve their life goal. Achieving these citizenship grants the rights and privileges on an individual as though they were native-born.

Not all are successful. Even being in those countries for a while doesn’t guarantee the ability to get the naturalization certificate. There are people who must return to their homeland after working contracts have expired. Some people marry their resident to claim citizenship and others who seek employment. The law is clear about the pathway to citizenship and the government is strict in seeing that only those who are deserving receive the coveted status. But not everyone that immigrants choose Australia/Canada as their destination. Regardless of your country of origin, or destination, Martin & Mir can assist in making the change easier.

Why You Need an Investor Visa

Investor visas are usually needed when you’re planning to go to another country and invest your money in a business already residing there. The decision to invest your money in a foreign business in a foreign land is a big one, and you should think about all the pros and cons before you make the decision.

Once you’ve decided that you are going to invest, you need to set up an amount. To be able to obtain most investor visas, you must be willing to invest a certain amount of money into the business. This amount makes you eligible for the visa. Our attorneys at Martin & Mir can help you decide if this is what you want and offer you a variety of services. 

Residence Visa

When making the decision to relocate to a new country, the first step is to get a visa for travel to that nation. The application for a visa needs some thought and some questions answered. Will you be applying for a immigration visa or non-immigration visa?

Types of Residence Visas

Residence visas comes in two types, permanent and temporary. A permanent visa, also called an immigration visa, allows a person to settle in a country on a permanent basis. It also is the first step on the path to eventual citizenship. The attorneys at Martin & Mir assist individuals and families each year in applying for visas to over 100 countries.

A temporary visa (also known as non-immigration visa) will allow a person to live in a foreign country for a prescribed number of months/ years before the visa expires. Although a visiting visa is an option that will not allow you to eventually take up permanent status. Martin & Mir have years of experience in working with citizens in over 100 countries and can help in the application process.

To qualify for a residence visa, the first step is to obtain the forms. Martin & Mir can aid in obtaining the applications, completing the forms and having them send to the consulate in your country. Then the waiting, while your paperwork is processed, will begin. When the forms are processed you will be called for an interview.
