From Student to Citizen
Many of our clients come back to use our services more than once. They see how difficult applying for visas and work permits can be so, when they want to take the next step in their journey, they come back to us. Sometimes our clients are so in love with the country that they are visiting that they decide to live there and James was one such person:
“My original plan was just to go to Canada on my gap year before uni with some friends. We organised everything through IXP and had such an amazing time! When I got back to the UK, I had to think long and hard about my future. In truth, I hadn’t thought much before applying to university and wasn’t sure whether I still wanted to go. After talking it over with my parents, I decided not to commit to something I couldn’t finish and I arranged to travel back to Canada, this time to get some work experience. The time flew by and before I knew it I was back on the phone to IXP again! A year out of education had done me the world of good and now I had a hunger for it again which is why I applied to a Canadian university. Luckily, I was accepted. That was seven years ago now and I’ve since become a Canadian citizen. IXP were there for me every step of the way and made all of the difficult paperwork so easy to understand.”
