Dubai is still the hub of commerce, trade, business and a favourite destination for international investors. We have noticed there is a pent-up desire in Middle Eastern investors to expand and capitalize on Canadian and North America markets.”

“Here comes the Ace to put each case and application on right track so that the investors do not face rejections due to the improper handling of the immigration case file, missing documents and lack of knowledge about business migration processes. We have seen 90 per cent of case rejections are due the improper submission by applicants or their representatives. Ace will be the only immigration company in the UAE which will be headed by a team of three expert Canadian national lawyers and has the highest success rate in the UAE.,” Shahrukh concluded. — business@khaleejtimes.com
