Q:Is the application for SUV immigrant visa guaranteed to be passed?

    As long as the applicant meets the SUV qualifications and completes the online course. There is basically a 99% chance of passing it, unless it is due to personal factors such as language proficiency that does not meet CLB 5, unqualified medical examination, inability to obtain a good citizen certificate, or insufficient settlement allowance.

Q:Better language ability, the more beneficial to apply?

    No, the level of language proficiency will not affect the approval of the application, as long as it reaches CLB 5.

Q:Whether business failure will affect the immigration status?

  No, entrepreneurship may succeed or fail in the possible, and it will not affect the permanent immigrant status that has been issued.
