Canada Visa Cost

Canada Visa Cost

A standard set by Immigration, Refugees, and Citizenship Canada (IRCC), government processing fees must be submitted along with most visa applications. These fees are the same regardless of your nationality or country of origin.

The government processing fees for a permanent or temporary resident visa will depend on the number family of members that are accompanying the principal applicant and are separate from any fees paid to an authorized representative, such as an attorney.

Please note these fees are subject to change by IRCC without notice.

You need to pay a fee for most of the applications. You can find information on fees in the application guides.
