What is a procedural fairness letter
When there are potential eligibility and/or admissibility issues with your immigration application, and before the immigration/visa officer makes a final decision, they will send you a letter to ask you to address their concerns. This letter is called a procedural fairness letter.
The letter will outline the potential issues and ask that you respond before a deadline.
What does a procedural fairness letter mean to you
When you receive this letter, it means at least one of the following issues may have occurred during the processing of your application:
2. Inadmissibility such as criminality, financial ability, medical conditions, etc.,
4. Lack of supporting documentation,
5. Genuineness of relationship.
What you should do
You shall follow the instructions outlined in the letter to provide your response. If you miss the deadline to respond, or your response does not properly address the issues, the immigration/visa offer may eventually refuse your application.
Sometimes, a refusal decision may have a more profound impact. For example, a finding of misrepresentation will result in a 5-year ban.
