Help Centre what do you need help with?

I received a letter asking me to pay additional fees for my Express Entry application. How do I pay the additional fees?

On April 30, 2020, the fees increased for most economic immigration programs and the right of permanent residence.

If you received a letter from us asking you to pay additional fees, you should:

  1. Calculate the total fee difference you need to pay
    • Add up all the “payable difference(s)” in the table below that apply to your situation
    • For example, the payable difference for you, your spouse and 1 dependent child (including the right of permanent residence fee) would be $645 CAN.
  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.
