Immigration On-Line (IOL) is a powerful tool that business owners and HR professionals can use to efficiently manage their immigration needs.

The new technology will allow you to use a meetings calendar to monitor applications scheduled to be heard by various Immigration Boards. Users will be able to “drill-down” to see the full details of each application, including: status history, meeting & decision detail, financial transactions and dependants. Comprehensive search, filter and sort functionality will allow instant access to current or historical applications. IOL also makes available business staffing plans, details of mail received by the Immigration Department, and cancelled permit information. In addition content can be exported to your own spreadsheets, reducing the amount of paper generated by each transaction.
