I would like to buy a property in India, solely for the purpose of having my mother get a visitor visa to canada successfully. (She doesn't have any property in her name at present)

I have a few questions regarding this.

1. Can I buy a land for this purpose?
When canadian high commission officers are looking at property papers of visitir visa applicants, do they take only houses into account? If it is a land /resi. plot, will that be considered by visa officers as a strong tieup similar to a house?

2. Can the property title holders be my mother and my wife? or Do the visa officers prefer that the property should be in the name of applicant only (my mother)?

You can buy land other than \" agricultural land\".

I can tell you with the experience of several of my friends that having ties does not necessarily mean owning property, but any tie such as your siblings / her siblings staying in India which can be a reason for her to go back to India.

It is worth trying for visitor visa for her even before you buy any property in India- in worst case scenario you will only lose the application fees. Next time you make the application, it goes to a different visa officer and his view could be different.

If you decide to go for buying property anyways, joint name should not be a problem .
