About World Immigration Service (WIS)

World Immigration Service goes on to say that it handled more than 25,000 immigration cases during the year to help their clients with business migration, spouse visas, work permits, study, and tourist visas and more. The company's head office is in Dubai and offers skilled migration to Australia and Canada as well as citizenship by investment Malta, Cyprus, Cayman Island, Antigua and Barbuda, St. Lucia, Grenada, St. Kitts, Dominica, Portugal, Greece, and Bulgaria. They also offer investment immigration to Canada, UK, USA, UAE, and Australia.

The Website

Firstly, we are concerned by the fact that we were warned that we were being directed to an unsafe website yet continued to the website, which is not secure, in order to conduct the review of their services. This is particularly concerning as they take online payments, which could be vulnerable to cyber-attacks. Our World Immigration Service review examined the company’s website, which is easy to navigate with a really simple design. Unfortunately, the pages take really long to load, which is ironic seeing as the first thing that you read on the “residency and citizenship programs” page is “fast track citizenship”. There is a sad amount of actual information about the different visas and the application process of the company. As we continued our World Immigration Service review, we were happy to notice that the company has both a Terms and Conditions and Privacy Policy on their site. These documents cover all of the basic legal requirements to help protect the consumer and the business from misuse. A refund clause is also found in the Terms and Conditions and says that refunds generally take around 10 to 45 days to process if you qualify of course. We found that the site also has some very short news blogs about immigration topics from New Zealand to Express Entry. We are unsure if these posts are recent as there is no year or date to the blog. Older articles are also not accessible, which is a bit frustrating. Strangely when we clicked on the Australian article and clicked “read more” we were redirected to the Australian Government website where it said that the page could not be found. This post dealt with a change that was announced on 18 April 2017, which leads us to believe that the blog in fact only has 3 posts and that it was last updated over 2 years ago. The website also has a testimonials page with 2 positive reviews, which honestly looks like they’ve used stock images and added the testimonial, however it is nearly impossible to validate whether testimonials are in fact genuine or not.

Their Services


We continued our World Immigration Service review by looking at the services they offer. WIS services include:

  • Business visas;
  • Visit visas;
  • Spouse visas;
  • Study permits; and
  • Work permits

Canadian immigration programs used by the company seem to be linked mostly to Express Entry or Provincial Nominee Programs. These are the only programs that are described in any detail. This section of the website sadly does not include the requirements of the program or talk about any of the major visa programs that use the Express Entry system like the Skilled Trade Worker Program or Canadian Experience Class. The company also mentioned that they hire consultants to “guide you through the application and screening period, up to the time you arrive and settle in Canada.” Unfortunately for WIS, we could not find any RCICs (Regulated Canadian Immigration Consultants) linked to their company. Whether the company has not updated their RCICs’ information on their site or if they have not registered the company’s RCICs with the ICCRC (Immigration Consultants of Canada Regulatory Council), it is still an issue that should be looked into. They also offer a free eligibility check as well as an online chat option.


Social Review World Immigration Service

Our World Immigration Service review examined how people reacted to the company on social media. We found that although the website has a link to Facebook the account was no longer available. The only other social media link was their LinkedIn page, which has a dismal 69 followers and seemed to have regular posts up until about 10 months ago when the post just stopped. Needless to say, their social media presence is in need of some serious attention.



To round up our review, we found that the main website could have had more information about the visa requirements since it was sadly lacking in that area. We did like that WIS has a free assessment to see if you could qualify. They site Terms and Conditions as well as a Privacy Policy that covers most of the basic legal issues. We were also a bit let down with the latest news section of the site where we could not access any other title other than the three headlines displayed on the site. Another issue we had was that we could not find the company’s RCIC or immigration lawyer. This is a serious issue that the company needs to address, as no one but a legal representative can actually offer paid immigration services. We were also not happy about the company’s lack of social media presence with no Facebook page and a Linkedin page which was last updated over 10 months ago. The site appears to be a skeleton at the moment and we could not comfortably recommend this company’s immigration services. Have you had any experience with this company? Please leave a review below.
