People warned of fake education/visa consultants in Pakistan 67


Myra Imran
Representatives of renowned educational institutions of Australia, United Kingdom and United States have warned aspiring candidate against fake consultants that actually make big majority of the total number of consultants working in the country.

They said that according to a rough estimate, there are more than 2,000 consultants in the country and among them only 20 are reliable and affiliated with the international institutions. They were talking to ‘The News’ at a two-day International Education Expo organised by HR Consultants on Sunday. “There is severe lack of good guidance in this regard and it is largely up to the student to judge the consultant’s reliability,” said Adeel Saeed Mir, Navitas Country Manager for Pakistan. He deals with admissions in colleges and universities in Australia and Canada.

Giving some hints about the identification of fake agencies, he said that they work on ‘done basis.’ “This term means that they ensure students about admission that is not possible. Many give false hopes to innocent students just to extract money and often tell them that the agency will manage admission even with low grades or false documents,” he added. He said that all these offers clearly indicate that the consultant is fraud. “A genuine consultant just guides and facilitates the client and clearly tells them that the last decision is in the hand of high commission or relevant authority,” he said.

Adeel said that students, who succeed in going abroad through such elements are never able to settle there and in majority of cases, they are caught and deported in the end. “Such youngsters are also vulnerable to abuse and often work in terrible conditions,” he added. He said that there are many fake colleges and universities in developed world and such consultants are usually attached with these institutions. “Even if a student gets a degree from such institution, it will be of no use,” he pointed out. He said that recently, the UK government has closed down around 300 such colleges and universities. “Now, the degrees issued by those institutions have become invalid worldwide.”

Rejecting the impression that the number of students applying for education abroad has decreased after change in the international politics, he said that the situation on the ground is just the opposite. “The number of students seeking this opportunity has actually increased.” He said that unstable political situation and increasing inflation is making more and more youngsters to apply for foreign degrees.

Amer Malik, Manager International Office Holmesglen, Australia, said that all information regarding the reliable consultants is usually available on the websites of relevant institutes. “Every university has got its own websites and students can double check whether the process they are following through consultants match the process mentioned on the website,” he said while giving another tip for checking the consultant.

Highlighting a changing trend, Malik said that more and more students are now applying for diploma courses that extend from one to two year. “There is increased realisation among youth that diploma courses make them more employable as market for such qualification is expanding,” he said appreciating the fact that Pakistani students are also keeping in mind the international market trends while applying for such courses.

The representatives said that that Australian government offers scholarships for students twice in a year that is in July and March.

“To apply for that, first a student needs to seek admission in Australia,” said Jennet from Melbourne Institute of Technology. As far as the conditions for admission is concerned, she said that along with India, Bangladesh, China, Sri Lanka and Afghanistan, Pakistan falls in the level 4. “Students of these countries have to do some extra work to show their financial position back home,” she said adding that it is actually for the benefit of students themselves. Jennet said that these restrictions are only for bachelors and masters degree student. “For research work, Pakistan falls in level 2,” she said.

    Application Fees
    The application handling expense is $550 and the Right of Permanent Residence Fee (RPRF) is $490, making a sum of $1,040 for a solitary candidate.
    In the event that you incorporate a companion/accomplice, you should pay similar expenses, a sum of $1,040, which makes it an aggregate of $2,080 for a couple.
    In the event that you incorporate a kid, you need to include $150 for every tyke.
    Biometrics charges ($85 for one individual, or most extreme $170 for a group of more than two) could be added to your aggregate.

    I am a senior citizen. I have50 years experience both in Pakistan and abroad. Abroad I worked for 35 years in “uniform”. One of my main job was arranging Visas for high top echelon both official visas as well holiday family visas or their children’s study visas for US/UK/Canada/Australia etc for these ruling and high class. Most of my time remained outside with Embassies for such jobs. I always felt home visiting Embassies there like US Embassy, Italian Embassy, French Embassy etc. I always felt discomfort with the thought of going to Pakistan Embassy for a visa for my top executive though this rarely was needed. Based on my experience I would give one advice to my “today’s young” and that is “Don’t go on big and alluring advertisements” of consultants and immigration advisers majority of whom are cheaters. Based on my long experience I can say without any hesitation that no one whosoever big-office holder consultant he/she may be, they have Zero influence inside the European embassies. Your work is done there on merit and as soon as your application reaches near maturity, these people started conveying you “their good work” similarly as one see every one barking from each political party in the evening talking show and every anchor claim “I gave first this news”. Do your work yourself. For example, if you feel, honestly you fit for immigration to Canada, fill up online Immigration Form, attach every required document, give true and factual position and wait for a year or so. Don’t let any consultant come in you. It will take time but if you are on merit you will be successful

    kindly any body knows about WSL consultant is it fraud or not because im going to Pay him 300 usd dollar for admision fee in advance and i am going to study in canada without IELTS kindly guide me..

    • A victim of Awan Links Services

      Mostly consultants are frauds and bastards. Just research yourself on google before paying them. I am also a victim of one bastard person situated in Lahore (Awan links services). He looted 8 lac + money from me. Then he closed his office, ran away from Pakistan and now in canada. Many FIA officials are also with these types of consultants. Firslty you have to do IELTS. Then google universities and courses in canada according to your profile. After getting a lot of information then go to only registered consultants like HR, AEO.

    • Aamir Mehmood Advocate

      Firstly confirm the university, in which you are applying. Never paid even a single penny before confirmation of university

    • Qamar Naveed

      Dear IEC Pakistan totally fraud and they are making money and playing with people. as I have applied. first they take admission fees which is about 30,000/- and then 80,000/- for statement (fake statement) and then demand for admission fees $3000. Visa 100% refused as they did not submit strong case then they deduct 1000$ from fees and give you 2000$ back after 03 month.

      However, as you wish.
