The bar code pages (Generic Application Form IMM0008)

  1. Hi guys,

    I was just wondering what you guys actually did, or plan to do with the auto-generated bar-code pages from the Generic Application Form IMM0008 form.

    After reading the instruction:
    "Place the barcode pages on top of your application (forms and supporting documents) when you will submit it."

    Off I went to print out the pages, the barcode pages are on Page 4 of 5 (containing eight blobs of barcodes) and Page 5 of 5 (last two blobs of barcodes and the consent/declaration/signature of the application)

    Now, according to the instruction above, I guess I'm supposed to rip out Page 4 and Page 5 from the IMM0008 form, and place it on top of all my forms, passport copies, T4 .... I have two concerns regarding this:
    1. My IMM0008 only has Pages 1, 2 and 3 stapled together, while pages 4 and 5 are separate. It just feels more right to have all these pages together, especially the signature part on page 5.
    2. I thought of photocopying so that I would have a complete 5-page IMM0008 document, plus the 2 pages "on top" as suggested. This approach has its own disadvantage having an extra duplicate of the signature page.

    Please let me know your thoughts.


  2. You can put the pages in this order : 5,4,1,2,3 and staple...
  3. Hey may i know where did you find these instruction ?
  4. From the guide Page 28, point# 3, 4.

    "If you do not sign and date, the application will be returned to you." -

    The last page with two bar codes will ave our signature, so this will be on top, to say that the info we have provided is complete, truthful, and correct.

    following the above page, next comes the remaining bar code page and then the application forms and supporting documents.
  5. I wouldn't staple forms. CIC don't like that.
  6. I used Jump clips...
  7. Hey Sai

    Can you please paste the link to guide ?
