The point of view of an immigration officer must be taken into consideration when he is analyzing the case of an applicant who is a professional or a competent businessman, and is taking the help an authorized body. In such a situation, the obvious question that crops up is that if a person is educated and capable- “why does not he/she apply on their own”. Added to it, if the application reflect no complex in the nature and there is no ground to reject it, the case becomes all the more complex that why this individual is seeking the help of representative. This is one reason that makes the immigration officers skeptical about such cases, and they are always vigilant when there is case of authorized representatives in picture. The immigration officers have also shared their opinion that applicants who apply on their own, holds a better position of getting immigration without even attending the interview.
As a matter of fact, most of the applicants are well educated and knowledgeable enough to apply for the immigration status on their own. So, the thought process of immigration officers is not at all wrong to give preference to those who apply on their own. Moreover, after coming through so many fraud cases of applicants, they have all the logic to suspect those applicants who take the help of any authorized representative service. And if there is a case wherein the immigration lawyer represents the candidate throughout, immigration officers are no way in favour of such cases. The notion that presence of established immigration representatives or lawyers favours the immigration process is not correct. The current picture in front of immigration officers is such that they question the eligibility of applications that are taking the help, because they feel that if the applicant is eligible, he/she would be granted the immigration status.
