Current Fees

Fees fluctuate with the changing exchange rate, which is monitored on a regular basis, and will be updated accordingly

Methods of payment      

If you pay by credit card, you must complete a Credit Card Authorization form. This form authorizes the Government of Canada to charge your credit card for payment of services. A service fee will be added to all credit card transactions at Government of Canada offices abroad (of $1.50 per $50 increment). This fee is charged by the payment service provider.

The form must reflect the exact charges for services requested and be completed in Canadian dollars. Failure to complete the form in full or authorize the correct fees may result in delays to your application. See below for a list of services and associated fees*
