Submission of your Canadian Immigation Application

  1. Where do I submit my skilled worker application?

    You can submit your application to the visa office responsible for your country of nationality or permanent residence. If you have been legally admitted to a different country for a period of one year or more, then you may also submit your application to the visa office responsible for the jurisdiction of that country. For example, a citizen of Ukraine who is residing in the USA on H1B status is able to submit a Canadian immigration application to either Kiev in Ukraine, or Buffalo in the USA.


  2. Do I have to submit any fees?

    Yes, the following fees are required as part of the Canadian immigration process for a skilled worker applicant:

    Government Processing Fee
    Principal applicant $550
    A family member of the principal applicant who is 22 years of age or older, or is less than 22 years of age and is a spouse or common-law partner $550
    A family member of the principal applicant who is less than 22 years of age and is not a spouse or common-law partner $150

    Right Of Permanent Residence (Right of Landing) Fee
    For the acquisition of permanent resident status $975
    This fee is payable by principal applicants (with some exceptions) and accompanying spouses and common-law partners. It must be paid before the immigrant visa is issued overseas or before the applicant becomes a permanent resident in Canada.

    The following applicants are not required to pay this fee:

    • dependent children of a principal applicant or sponsor, a child to be adopted, or an orphaned brother, sister, niece, nephew or grandchild; and
    • protected persons, including Convention refugees.


  3. What is the best time to submit the Canadian immigration application?

    The processing of applications submitted to a visa office is not affected by the time during the calendar year at which the case is submitted. Given the normal delays in processing applications worldwide, it is generally best to submit your case as early as is feasible.


  4. Is there a quota for applications from any given country?

    No, Canada's immigration system does not contain any provisions for a quota by which a maximum number of applicants from any given region are allowable. Applications are treated on a first-come-first-serve basis.


  5. Is it better if someone else submits my case for me?

    No, not necessarily. You, the applicant, have the greatest vested interest in ensuring the integrity of your application and in ensuring that follow-up of your case is done in a fashion which reflects the importance of this matter. With the right tools, the individual applicant is the best qualified person to prepare, submit, and track his or her own application for Canadian immigration.
