About BAL Immigration Services Inc.

BAL Immigration Services Inc. is a Canadian immigration company based in Canada and India that works with clients in Canada and abroad. The company is supposedly run by RCIC agents recognized by the ICCRC and the CMI. Kalvinder Bal is the company's president, and his RCIC number is (R407447). However, you wouldn’t know this based on their website, as there is no clear reference to Kavinder Bal on any of their website’s main pages.

This is strange as Kavinder Bal is registered on The College of Immigration and Citizenship Consultants (CICC) website. Generally, it’s a major asset for immigration consultancies to have a registered RCIC as they legitimize the content and services offered on their website.

The Website

The website for BAL Immigration is well-designed, and we can see they had good intentions when designing it. There is information on some Canadian visa applications, but the information could be more extensive and specific and concentrates more on Canada than the actual visa application requirements. However, they do have a clear privacy policy, disclaimer, and terms of service. On top of this, they have a CRS calculator and a specific calculator for the British Columbia Provincial Nominee Program draw to help their customers know where they stand before applying for services.

The website is easy to navigate and has a clear breakdown of the services they provide. While it could do with some work, particularly discussing their RCICs, it does help further their legitimacy.

Social Media

Bal has social media platforms for their India and Canada offices. Each office has respective Facebook, Instagram, and LinkedIn accounts.

Their Canadian Facebook, Linkedin, and Instagram accounts are broadly similar, with well-produced, professional video and written content, often hosted by Kavinder Bal himself, further showing their legitimacy. Each page has multiple weekly updates and engages in multiple media styles, including reels, images, and text posts. This shows the company's constant and consistent effort to maintain its legitimacy and engage with its audience. Overall, this content clearly shows the culture and attitude of the business while also imparting knowledge in a highly engaging manner.

Their Facebook, LinkedIn, and Instagram accounts for their India office are slightly less sophisticated, relying less on video content and more on traditional image and text content. However, this content is very clearly angled towards an Indian customer base as it consistently references aspects of Indian life like religious or public holidays. This is also a great example of how simple content can go a long way when angled correctly.

Our Conclusion

BAL Immigration Services is a highly legitimate immigration agency with a good quality, professional website, stellar social media, and certified RCICs. However, they face drawbacks with their site, like a lack of content discussing their RCICs and a lot of their visa content needing more research and greater depth. Overall, Bal is, clearly legitimate despite needing a few minor improvements.
