Forms for you (principal applicant) to fill out

Use the instruction guide to fill out your application forms.

  • Make sure you have Adobe Reader 10 or higher and Javascript is turned on. If you have trouble downloading, right-click the link and choose “Save Target As…”
  • Fill out the form on your computer instead of by hand. It’s easier and reduces mistakes that can cause delays.

IMM 0008 is a barcode form. Make sure you validate it and submit all the pages:

  • Click the “Validate” button at the top or bottom of the form. Validating the form before printing makes sure that you have answered all the questions. This will help you to avoid delays in processing your application.
  • One or more pages with barcodes and a signature line will automatically be created.
  • Print, sign and date the form.
    • Use white, high-quality and non-glossy paper.
    • Use a laser printer if you can.
  • Place the IMM 0008 form, including the barcode page(s), on the top of your application package.
