Please note that submitting a completed application and necessary supporting documents does not guarantee that you will receive a visa.

If you answer "Yes" to any one of questions 3 to 7 in the section "Background Information", you may be required to complete an IMM 5257 SCHEDULE 1 form.

In addition to these application forms you must submit the following forms:

Passport photocopy: Be sure to retain, for yourself, at least one clear, good quality photocopy of your passport ID page (and of any pages recording amendments) before submitting your application. Colour is preferred, but a good black & white copy is also acceptable. You will require this copy in the event you are required to undergo a medical examination as passports will not be returned for this purpose.
