Find out if you are selected to apply to sponsor your parent and grandparent

Second round of invitations

On September 6, 2017, we started inviting a second round of potential sponsors to submit an application. The newly selected confirmation numbers are available below.

The first step toward becoming a sponsor is to submit an online Interest to Sponsor form. This form was available between January 3, 2017, and February 2, 2017. If you didn’t submit this form, you can’t participate in the 2017 selection process.

Earlier this year, we invited 10,000 individuals to submit an application to sponsor their parents and grandparents by August 4, 2017. Since we didn’t receive 10,000 complete applications, we invited a second round of potential sponsors to submit an application.

We randomly selected individuals from the list of people who submitted the Interest to Sponsor form at the beginning of the year. If you were already selected during the first round of invitations, you were not invited again.

We removed the confirmation numbers for the first round of invitations from this page.

To check if you are one of the potential sponsors selected during the second round, follow these steps:

Step 1: Find your confirmation number

Your confirmation number was on the screen that confirmed your submission of the Interest to Sponsor form.

It has seven characters and includes numbers and letters in this order:

If you lost or forgot your confirmation number: check your invitation status through our online form. We’ll respond within 10 business days to confirm whether you were selected or not.

Step 2: Select the first number in your confirmation number

Select the number from the drop-down list below, then click on the button Show confirmation numbers.

Step 3: Search for your confirmation number

A list of all the confirmation numbers starting with the number you selected will appear.

To find your confirmation number, type your number in the Filter items field.
