AMD Immigration is a Canadian Immigration consultancy agency operating from Quebec. According to their site, they have helped many people immigrate to Canada via appropriate immigration visa programs they offer. AMD Immigration’s consultants are prepared to support you in the immigration process and to advise you on what best suits you and your family’s needs.

Headed by Mr Driss Amsoul, an approved member of the RCIC (#R406849), you can be confident that AMD Immigration is qualified to handle your immigration needs. As stated on their website, Amsoul completed a Bachelor’s in Political Sciences and human rights at the University of Padua (Italy), studied at the University of Versailles and L’Institut d’Etudes Politiques de Paris (IEP Paris), as well as higher studies in foreign policy, cooperation and development at the University of Quebec at Montreal (UQAM). He graduated in Canadian immigration law. During his career, he has participated in several seminars in France, Italy and Canada relating to human rights, juvenile law, international security and migration.

This immigration agency claims to strive to provide quality services and leadership, differentiating themselves from other immigration agencies, though “professionalism, transparency, confidentiality and speed.”

The website is available in both French and English. We were pleased to find terms and conditions and a privacy policy at the bottom of the page as it lends credibility to their reputation. However, it should be noted that in their terms and conditions, there is a clause that states that AMD aren’t liable for any losses due to the use of their services – which implies that they do not have a refund policy. The site is user-friendly and explains all of their services clearly. They link to a completely separate service, unrelated to Canadian immigration, in their main menu called EB-5 Visa. This EB-5 Visa page is a US investor green card program which requires an ‘investment’ to be eligible for a green card.

About EB-5 Visa 

EB5According to the information on the EB-5 Visa page:
“The immigrant investor, or EB-5, program is a highly beneficial permanent residence option for the wealthy individual. It enables a foreign national to obtain permanent residence status more expeditiously than with most other options.”

According to them, this unique visa program does not require any experience, language proficiency and does not even have a minimum education requirement. Permanent residence is conditional for two years. Applicants can become permanent upon satisfying United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) after the two years, provided that the investment proceeds have not been withdrawn and the requisite jobs have been created.

What is an EB-5 Visa?

In accordance with US federal law:

“USCIS administers the EB-5 Program. Under this program, entrepreneurs (and their spouses and unmarried

children under 21) are eligible to apply for a green card (permanent residence) if they make the necessary investment in a commercial enterprise in the United States; and plan to create or preserve 10 permanent full-time jobs for qualified U.S. workers.”

What this means is that the emigrant is likely expected to invest at least $1,000,000 into a new commercial enterprise to qualify for this visa.

The Service

AMD Immigration offers a free assessment to determine whether you are eligible for any of the programs. They have a wealth of resources on the various immigration programs, including family sponsorship, business immigration and programs in Quebec. They also have a Canadian news section.

We appreciate that AMD Immigration are transparent about the fact that they charge for a consultation. Found on their payment page, they have provided different packaged options based on how much the client is willing to spend.

Social Media

fbWe noted that they do not appear to be placing very much emphasis on developing their presence on social media, as their Facebook page only has 104 followers, and has not been updated in over two years. Where have they gone? Mr Amsoul’s personal account is used as the social media link for EB-5 Visa and it seems that he is still allied with AMD as his profile picture is still set as the AMD logo, but there is no official EB-5 Visa business page on Facebook.

Conclusion

This site’s reputation checks out most of our criteria and we commend their transparency on the payment page. We do have our issues though, such as their not-so-obvious affiliation with EB-5. We were disappointed that they don’t have any active social media portals because we would have also liked to see actual user interaction and feedback on their services.
