I can’t pay the new fees for Express Entry. How do I pay my new fees in full?

On April 30, 2020, the fees increased for most economic immigration programs and the Right of permanent residence. The Express Entry online application isn’t updated with the new fees. This will only happen on June 2.

From now until June 2, 2020, you must pay your application fees in 2 payments.

Payment 1: pay the difference in the fee amount in our ePayment portal

  1. Calculate the total fee difference you need to pay
    • Add up all the “payable difference” in the table below that applies to your situation
    • For example, the payable difference for you, your spouse and 1 dependent child (including the right of permanent residence) is $CAN 645.
  2. Go to the Make an additional payment or pay other fees page in the ePayment portal
  3. Under “Quantity”, enter the payable difference amount
    • Each payment generates 1 receipt. You can pay as a single payment or repeat this step to make multiple payments.
    • The receipt will be sent to the e-mail address you entered in the ePayment portal.

Payment 2: pay the rest of your fees in your secure account

  1. Return to your application in your IRCC secure account
  2. From the Document checklist page, upload the receipt(s) for the fee difference under “Optional Documents: Client Information”
  3. Proceed to pay the rest of your application fees
