The Canadian Immigration Service announced that it would raise immigration fees. The new fee rules will take effect as of 9 a.m. (EST) April 30th, and applications received prior to that will be charged at pre-increase fees. However, this fee increase is important for all prospective permanent residency applicants, as the increased exact fee must be paid for applications after April 30th, and the documents will be returned as incomplete if they are not paid.

The fee increase is federal expenses that have also been applied to state applicants and accompanying families.

The increased types of permanent residency were largely divided into business classes where self-employed and investment immigrants belong, Express Entry, which immigrates with experience and technology, and non-business classes where PNP immigrants belong. The increased fees for applying for permanent residency generally increase by 50%.

• Main Applicant: Business Class (self-employed, investment, etc.) $1,050-> $1,575 (50% increase)
• Main applicant: non-business class (Express Entry, PNP – Skilled Imigration, Family Invited Immigration, etc.) $550 -> $825 (50% increase)
• Companion spouse: $550 - $ $825 (50% increase)
• Companion children: $150 -> $225 (50% increase)
• Landing cost (RPRF: Right of Permanent Resident Fee): $490 -> $500 (a 2% increase)

PNP state fees, Biometric costs and PR card extension costs have been frozen.

For example, before April 30, express entry to pay if the denizenship applications for a family of the total cost of immigration, which soared past 1,040 per $ ($ 550 (your listener with the denizenship applications.) + cost $ 490 (Cost : rprf raending)) The total cost of immigration after this April 30, compared with $ 1,325 (cost of celadon with the denizenship applications (which you have $ 835) + (Cost : rprf raending)) increased to $ 500.To pay costs. In addition to this, you also need to pay $85 Biometric.

If you apply for Express Entry as a four-member family, you would have previously paid $2,380 (two adults ($550+550+490 (RPRF) + two underage children ($150 + $150) plus an additional $7,220 (US$250+ $100) to pay $2,100 (US$225) after April 30.
According to the Immigration Bureau, the increase was the first since 2002, reflecting the rise in the Canadian price index. In addition, the next increase is expected in 2022.

We hope that applicants who can prepare for immigration will be able to apply as soon as possible and acquire permanent residency not only for the cost reduction but also for the immigration policy to change in the future.
