The immigration process is complex and anxiety-filled for most candidates. Here at the BRZEE Academy as the best IELTS coaching centre in Gurugram, we do our best to explain the process applicants will undergo. It is important that prospective IELTS students understand the procedures that needs to be taken up and the law that applies to it.

The immigration law, like many other complex areas, has its own language and abbreviations. Sometimes the government uses these abbreviations to make the process seem stringent. Sometimes, it is just easier for us to use “shorthand,” instead of a long phrase. Either way, it is sometimes very confusing to people. We have put together the above comprehensive list of the most commonly used abbreviations.

BRZEE Academy as the premier institute in IELTS / PTE coaching and immigration guidance wishes that your immigration procedure will proceed smoothly and you are able to reach to your preferred destination. We welcome you to reach out to us in case of any doubts.
