If you pay in advance, you'll get the biometric letter directly. If you don't, you'll get a fee request and then the biometric letter sometime after paying.

I think most prefer to just pay the modest amount together with application to avoid the slight delay of request-fee-letter, but probably doesn't matter much.

Hi. I paid biometric fee together with my husband's application fee. Then they sent an email asking for us to pay, so we did pay again. However, when submitting the webform, I accidentally entered my date of birth instead of my husband (applicant). I have not heard from them yet, it is more than a month now. I am starting to worry, we already did link his online application online but nothing is showing. HELP :confused:

Please help, can the sponsor pay for Biometric when applying or should the principal Applicant pay when ask for biometric back home?

You probably want to pay at the time when you are filing the application, in order to avoid having to wait for the payment request at a later stage. But if you don't mind waiting a bit, then it doesn't matter, you could do either. In our case Sponsor paid at the start, when we were filing the paperwork.

You paid IRCC already.....any of you can pay so send them the confirmation number of the second and first and ask for a refund.....it's not their money and they will pay you back....send them another email again and override the first one.....this time, use the correct date if birth

I hope somebody can answer our question, what is the next step now if we received the following details about our application?


Applied for inland family class in December 2019
Medical done on September 2020
Biological done on October 2020
Open work permit application has been submitted together with the inland application, but have not received it yet.


  • IRCC confirms that your file is being reviewed by the local office
  • Security has passed
  • Eligibility has passed

what will be the next steps then? We have been waiting for so long and are very frustrated.

Thank you for for your attention to my post.

a friend of mine sponsors her husband within Canada, but they had their documents returned from
Mississauga due to missing signature after 6 months. Long story short, it is not clear what they need to do next:

1. Do they need to fill out new forms dated in October, or they can just sign and send back the ones from March? If they need to fill out new ones, do they need to send the original forms as well, along with the cover letter that CIC sent them?
2. Do they need to pay the fees again or they will get refund and will have to make a new payment?
3. His visitor status has lapsed, can he still apply for extension online explaining the situation?

thanks

Just write a letter and thank IRCC for returning the letter and fill in a new form, since it may have been updated, print a sign...!! Just do what they asked you for and why they returned it....That is so not good....they returned my wife's own from Sydney to BC because she also failed to sign within a month and I guess Mississauga population is why...because Nova Scotia is far from Mississauga to BC
