Current applications: If you are paying additional fees for an application currently being processed at this office, the payment must be attached to the letter from our office requesting the additional payment. 

Family class applications: All applications for sponsored family class members must be submitted to the Case Processing Centre (CPC) in Canada. For more information on how to pay and where to submit your application, please refer to the Citizenship and Immigration Canada (CIC) website.

Payment instructions

The processing fees can be paid only by direct deposit in Brazilian real.

You can pay the fees at any HSBC Bank in Brazil. Your payment should be deposited in cash into the account of the Consulate General of Canada in Sao Paulo. The branch number is: 1888 and the Consulate's account number is: 00116-05. Do not use ATMs or Internet bank transfers as these forms of payment are not accepted by the Consulate.

The bank will give you a deposit slip which you must include with your application. We will issue you a receipt when we receive your application with your deposit slip.

If you are submitting your permanent resident application at the Centralized Intake Office in Canada, you should see the application guide.
