About Global Migration Services


Global Migration Services is located in the United Arab Emirates, Dubai and have been operating since 1997. They claim to have more than 45,000 successful clients and have processed over 3000 immigration cases each year. They also claim a 100% rate for preparation time, case submission ratio and client bonding and follow up with a 99% client satisfaction rate. This all seems very impressive however is difficult to prove. They state that they offer skilled immigration services to:

  • New Zealand;
  • Canada; and 
  • Australia

They also offer citizenship by investment to:

  • New Zealand;
  • Bulgaria;
  • Cyprus;
  • Hungary;

  • St. Lucia
  • Canada; and 
  • Australia

The Website

After claiming that they deliver so many services across the world we found the company’s website to be highly disappointing. Not only is there a lack of useful information, but the site also seems to have many spelling and grammar errors on their main pages.  When looking for information about Canadian immigration, we found no mention of any program names or concrete information about the process. The website has an option we have never seen before. The Refer a Friend feature, which encourages you to give out a friend’s contact details and interest to the company for a voucher. This seems a bit like an invasion of privacy. The website is secure which is good as clients make payments online and submit personal information via the website. It also offers free assessment as a value-added service. We noticed that they include a Privacy Policy, Terms and Conditions, and Refund Policy. This does make them appear more credible as a company since these documents are there to help protect both the user and the company. Unfortunately, we noticed that these documents are very short and do not cover a very large selection of cases. In their Terms and Conditions, for example, they state that any “50% retainer fees of (contract value)” are not refundable, no matter the circumstance of the client.


It seems that the company has an RCIC (Regulated Canadian Immigration Consultant). Mr. Farooq Imran, R410607, is registered with the ICCRC (Immigration Consultants of Canada Regulatory Council). Mr. Farooq works for two companies, Premier Management, and Consultancy and Global Migration Services.  We are worried about these complaints seeing as both companies hire the same RCIC. All the complaints seem to have the same underlying issue - misinformation. We continue our review by looking at what other services Global Migration Services offer. The company says they can help with applications for:
  • Students visas;
  • Citizenship by investment;
  • Skilled immigrants;
  • Work permit visa;
  • Family visas; and
  • Visit visas

We cannot find any real information for Canadian immigration programs like Express Entry, Provincial Nomination Programs or any other immigration program on their site. The website also does not have a blog or links to social media platforms.

Social Media Reviews

We could not find any social media platforms for Global Migration Services. We did, however, find a mix of positive and negative reviews online. We found 3 positive google reviews and negative reviews including complaints about tax avoidance, not delivering service promised and no refunds being issued as well as withholding documents to retrieve the money. This puts serious doubts on the company’s ability to deliver real immigration services. Overall, according to Trust Pilot, Global Migrate Service has a 4-star rating with 75 % of its reviews being excellent, however, we are concerned about the 19% that has rated them as bad as well as the reasons for the rating, as mentioned above.


We would suggest extreme caution when you hire their services. Although they have an RCIC that does belong to the ICCRC, there seem to be many issues with Global Migration Services and Premiers Consultancy. Furthermore, the website of Global Migration Services contains very little information that is useful, and there is no mention of the most popular immigration programs like Express Entry. There also seems to be a great deal of trouble around miscommunication between the company and its clients. One of the common complaints is that customers are told that they can qualify for programs, but then their applications fail afterward. We are also seriously worried about the outdated content we found, as well as the non-existent social media presence.
