Processing fees change for Canadian Immigration

Canada’s immigration department is increasing processing fees for foreign nationals attempting to become permanent residents by the end of the month.

The fees that foreign nationals pay include operational, processing and service delivery costs related to all permanent residence immigration programs.

The new rules come into effect on April 30, at 9 a.m. EDT. Completed requests submitted prior to this date will be handled according to the existing fee schedule. Applications submitted on or after that time which do not contain the required fees will be returned as incomplete to the applicants.

Permanent resident processing fees for economic class applicants are generally being increased by 50 percent as follows:

  • Principal applicants of the Economic business class (self-employed, start-up visa, Quebec investor, Quebec entrepreneur, and Quebec self-employed) will increase from $1,050 to $1,575;
  • Principal applicants in the economic non-business class will go up from $550 to $825. This increase will not apply to principal applicants and their families in the Caregivers programs, which will remain unchanged;
  • Fees for spouses or common-law partners of all economic classes will go up from $550 to $825;
  • Fees for dependent children of all economic classes will go up from $150 to $225;
  • The right of permanent resident fee will increase from $490 to $500, which is an increase of two per cent.

Fees are projected to rise every two year, rounded to the nearest $5 depending on the relevant Consumer Price Index. New fee rates are set for publication in 2022.

Fees for permanent resident cards, permanent resident travel documents and certification or replacement immigration documents will not increase.

Immigration, Refugees, and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) state there has been no raise in permanent residency fees since 2002.

Fees for applications for permanent residency will again adjust in 2022 according to the Consumer Price Index.

Canada is still accepting spousal immigration applications despite Corona virus. If you plan to sponsor your partner for permanent residence in Canada, you can still begin the process with special measures for Corona virus.

The Canadian government has announced that they will still be accepting and processing spousal and common law sponsorship applications for partners in Canada as well as abroad.

It is good news for applicants, both within and outside Canada, who have not yet had a chance to send their applications to the Canadian Immigration authorities.

As the Government of Canada continues to refine COVID-19 initiatives, Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) has ironed out some of the questions couples might have about sponsorship during the crisis.
