Subject: Review for refused Emergency Visiting Visa application for Funeral RAMANDEEP BAINS (Application N0; V302045032) UCI:89703318
This letter refers to refusal of my temporary visa to Canada to attend my only sister’s funeral which is on 1 september 2012. I was really disappointed and devastated by the decision made by consulate general of Canada in Australia.
Furthermore, my 24 years old sister Ramandeep Kaur Bains, D.O.B 14/03/1988 resided in 7884 132 Street, Surrey,BC Canada as a Permanent resident has been passed away on 21 August 2012 Unexpectedly. All my family as stated in family information form has been granted visa and expected to be there tomorrow morning. I am her only sister and I really would like to attend religious prayers and pay her my final respects on her funeral.
In addition, I am not getting any sort of further assistance from Canadian consulate in Australia. I was happy to provide furthermore document but they refused to talk to me furthermore. I attach the refusal letter, sponsor letters from my brother in law and death certificate of my sister.
It would be really appreciated if you can personally look into this matter. I can assure you that I will leave Canada before the expire date of my visa as I am well settled and no reason to leave from Australia.
