You need to give your biometrics

In most cases, you now need to give your fingerprints and photo (biometrics) after you apply.

You can now apply online

We’re testing a new online immigration application. You can use it to apply (opens in a new tab)

If the CIO finds your application complete, the CIO will forward it to an office to be processed. If you do not include all of the documents and forms set out in the checklist with your application, we will return it to you. Do not provide documents that are not listed in the checklist.

Want to live in Quebec?
