Canada Visa Fee

Citizenship and Immigration Canada (CIC) charges a visa fee for processing of applications from potential migrants.

Besides the visa processing fee, immigration related expenses could include:

  • Medical examinations
  • Police certificates and
  • Language assessments

The visa fee can be paid in Canadian dollars or Indian rupees. This can only be paid as valid demand (bank) drafts, money order or certified cheques. Since these may have limited validity, checking the expiry date is a must. Cash is not an acceptable mode of payment. Credit cards (Visa®, MasterCard®, American Express®) can also be used.

Processing fee is payable for the principal applicant and other accompanying family members.

As per the current fee schedule, the skilled workers need to pay the following for permanent residence along with their applications:

Skilled Worker, Provincial Nominee, Family Class CANADIAN DOLLARS INR
Principal Applicant 550 30,000
Spouse/Partner 550 30,000
Dependant 19 years and over 550 30,000
Dependant under 19 years 150 8,200

Once the application has been approved the right of permanent residence fee will be requested by the Visa Office based on the following table. This fee isn’t applicable for dependent children.

Right of Permanent Residence Fee Number of persons Amount per person Amount Due
Principal applicant 1 x $490 $ 490
