Can Mumtaz Immigration Services Be Trusted?
Mumtaz Immigration Services is a law firm based in Karachi, Pakistan that was founded in 1983 by Mumtaz Ahmed Shaikh.
The main website deals with their primary services which include insurance, family and finance law, which means that they are not solely dedicated to immigration. If you click on”immigration lawyer” on the home page menu, you’ll be sent to the immigration part of the website. This can be a little confusing, as this part of the website looks completely different.
Under immigration, Mumtaz Immigration claims to provide immigration services to Australia, Canada, the U.S., Austria, the UK, Europe, Malaysia and Denmark. Unfortunately, there is no evidence of their company being registered with any regulatory board for any of these countries.
While easy to navigate, it does not look very professional and is a little chaotic, especially for mobile users. The content is also lacking and does not provide very much information on the different visas.
This part of the website also gives no indication who handles the immigration, and no lawyers are mentioned in this part of the site. We did note that the main part of their website does list their law team, but this is confusing as there is no way to directly access this information from the immigration services page, and can give the impression that this information is not available. It is also not clear if these lawyers are even involved with the immigration part of the firm at all.
For those looking to go to Canada, their content on Canadian Visas is outdated and does not even mention the Express Entry program. Worse, the existing content does not even exist, because clicking on it gets you a page “Not Found” error.
No listed dedicated immigration professionals, plus the lack of correct content means one should be sceptical of the level of services provided by them.
Another concerning point is the number of countries they claim to do immigration to. In order to provide immigration services to so many countries, they would require a very large team of immigration professionals, and is often used as a tactic to look more impressive, but comes at the cost of ineffective services.
There are social media links on the website for Mumtaz Immigration Services for both Facebook and Twitter. The Facebook page was created in 2011 and has 1875 likes. There are regular posts on the page and the posts are relevant to immigration and studying abroad.
It is worth noting that there is a post that tells people that their Lahore office has been closed since 2012. However, their website still lists an address for the Lahore office.
The link to the Twitter account does not work.
From Bad to Worse
Unfortunately, hee errors in the immigration side of their website leave little reason to remain confident in their services, both legal and for immigration.
There are also no testimonials for Mumtaz Immigration Services, but considering the lack of effort that has been put into their website, we are not surprised. We would advise staying far away from Mumtaz Immigration Services and Mumtaz & Associates.
