A pretty website with no relevant information.
When looking for agents to help you immigrate to Canada (or any other country), it is important to try establish the legitimacy of the company behind the website. While Migrate Worldwide does has an attractive website, do they deliver on their promises, or are they just a pretty face?
Migrate Worldwide is a newly established immigration agency located in Cape Town South Africa, which promises to help with recruitment, relocation and immigration. Sounds amazing right? Kill three birds with one stone!
When a website offers immigration to several different countries, but only seems to have accredited and qualified immigration advisers in two of those countries, then something isn’t right. The company only has licensed immigration advisers for Australia and New Zealand, with nobody representing South Africa, Canada, U.S.A or the U.K.
Migrate Worldwide offers assistance in immigrating to Canada (and other countries), helping you find a job in Canada (and other countries) and also helps you with your relocating.
According to the immigrations section on the website, the company is affiliated with worldwide immigration professionals that keep them updated with what is happening in the world of immigration. The recruitment side helps you find a job and the relocation side helps you find the correct bank and cost budgets that will suit your needs.
One Question…who are these affiliations that assist with the immigration and how do we know that they are qualified and recognized by any government?
The website, although professional and beautiful, is a little difficult to read with the light grey wording on the white background. It is easy to navigate and takes you to all the right pages.
According to their Google+ page, they have immigration attorneys, yet on the website it says the consultants/staff are trained daily on the latest immigration news and laws. So what are they? Consultants or attorneys? If they are consultants, then how are they qualified to assist you in immigrating to Canada or anywhere for that matter? If they are attorneys then do they know all the laws for the different countries?
One of the consultant agents, Denis Otto is registered and Licensed by Immigration Advisers Authority, while Karl Walder is said to be registered by the Migration Institute of Australia. However, we cannot find him on the website when we search for his name or immigration agent number. So what about Canada? Who is processing applications for Canadian Visas?
Although they have two licensed advisers, we do not know if we are dealing with consultants or lawyers. They do not have any consultant that is registered with the Immigration Consultants of Canada Regulatory Council (ICCRC) or Regulated Canadian Immigration Consultant (RCIC).
Because Migrate Worldwide’s website was only registered in 2014, there are few reviews about their services on the web and none on their website which makes it difficult to know about the level of service that they provide. Fortunately, there are two positive reviews found on Facebook, stating that their services are good.
The Social Media engagement seems to be good and they respond to people, except for Google + (there has been no form of engagement or posts). The blog is updated constantly and has good articles. There is no information on the website about the steps involved in immigrating or what the entire process entails for the various countries. You will have to sign up to learn more about their services.
