What is a complete application package?
Your application package is complete once you:
- answer all the questions on the application form
- submit proof you paid the fees that apply to your application and
- submit all needed forms and documents
If you forget to send a document and/or pay the fees that apply
- we may return your application to you
- your processing time may be delayed, or
- we may refuse your application
To find out what you need to include so your application is complete:
- read the instruction guide and the application package that includes the application forms you need to fill out and shows the fees you need to pay, or
- use the Come to Canada tool to
- find out if you’re eligible to apply
- get a personalized document checklist with a list of documents you need to submit, based on your specific situation
- If what you’re applying for involves travel to Canada
- check the COVID-19 travel restrictions and exemptions to find out about any other documents you may need to include
