The Lazy Website
Overseas Immigration is an immigration company that provides immigration services to Canada. However, Overseas Immigration not only deals with immigration but recruitment too and they claim to be the elite suppliers of workers to their clients. Sounds a bit like a cattle service but that may just be us.
Overseas Immigration claims to have over 10 years of experience but when we read their About Us page they say that they are in the eighth year of business. This seems a little strange and misleading. We found out that the CEO and the RCIC agent is Kuldeep Bansal.
On the Contact Us page there is also a list of Overseas Immigration staff members. Kuldeep’s RCIC number is not listed on the website but we found it on the ICCRC’s website, R407527. We also found out that Cynthia is the Marketing Manager as well as a paralegal. No surname or credentials are provided for Cynthia.

The website for Overseas Immigration is nicely laid out and it is easy to use. With this being said, when you are wanting to look for information about their immigration services and you click on the option, you are either directed to the CIC’s website or to a specific province’s website. It is a very lazy way of doing things and if Overseas Immigration claims to have the years of experience that they do, then surely they can provide their own information?
On the website they also claim that they have the expertise to provide their clients with FREE advice. We are unsure whether they mean that they give their services for free or that they have a free online form, which they do.
Something that we found strange is the fact that they claim to be members of a few organisations like the ICCRC (this is true), CAPIC, Canadian Restaurant and Food Services Provider, Retail Council of Canada and the Law Society of British Columbia. You are unable to click on any of these organisation’s seals and we really do not know who the lawyer is at this company.
On the website Overseas Immigration claims to provide their clients with services in the following languages:
However, there is no option for the Overseas Immigration website to be translated to another language.
When we were going through the website we found a few pages that did not work or were not found. There is an option to look at a Gallery but when we click on the option you see Page Not Found. This also happens when you look at the Provincial Nomination option and provinces like Alberta and British Columbia do not work.
There are two social media links from the website for Facebook and Twitter. The Facebook page is a personal account for Kuldeep Bansal and as we aren’t friends with him on Facebook what we can see is limited. There are posts to the account saying that truck drivers are wanted. When people comment on the posts Kuldeep replies saying that the individual should either add him on WhatsApp or message him and he provides his personal number.
The link for Twitter does not work and we were redirected to the page that we were on. We did find a personal Twitter account for Kuldeep Bansal with over 200 followers but no posts.
The website for Overseas Immigration is laid out nicely and is easy to navigate but it lacks important information and the information that is provided is not their own. The fact that Overseas Immigration has put organisation’s seals on their website with no indication of how they are linked is worrying. Who is the lawyer that is registered with the Law Society of British Colombia?
