Website and Services


The website for CVIC is very basic and looks a bit bare, due to a lack of information. Carmela has failed to include essential online documentation like terms and conditions, privacy policy, and refund policy. These are extremely important documents because they help clients know exactly what they are getting into before signing up with a company. If you look at the “Services” page you will see that there is a list of Canadian visa application options, but there is no information about any of them. The website does not bother to explain these immigration services. We found this very disappointing because people visit the website for help and information about visa applications. In this review we have found that the company provides the following Canadian immigration services:

  • Visitors Visa;
  • Study Visa;
  • Citizenship; and
  • Live-In-Caregiver Program


Social Media


Links to the social media platforms of Carmela Valles Immigration Consulting can be found in the header and footer of the website. The Facebook page has a small following of only 362 people. However, the posts are very regular which is important to build a following. The Twitter link on the website leads to a non-existent page, which is concerning. 

Our Conclusion


Our CVIC Carmela Valles Immigration Consulting Review has found that Carmela Valles is a registered and recognized RCIC agent. Although her website lacks information, she definitely has experience in the immigration field. We also felt that Carmela would benefit from improving her company’s social media presence.
