Immigration Form Tips

1. Follow the instructions on your immigration papers exactly. This means using the pen colour and writing style that the form’s instructions ask you to – this is required for a reason, and will ensure the immigration officer can read your application easily during processing.

2. Do not miss any fields or sections on the immigration papers. If something does not apply to you or you cannot answer it, write “not applicable” or “n/a” for short in the field. This will assure the immigration officer processing your paperwork that you didn’t skip something important.

3. Make sure you understand the supporting documentation you need for your immigration application and ensure it is ready to be included in your application package. Supporting documents differ based on the type of application needed: you will need to know exactly what is required. Some examples of supporting documentation include proof of current citizenship (such as a passport or birth certificate), resumes, educational transcripts and financial statements.

4. Include the relevant supporting documents with your immigration application. If you cannot include something for any reason, include a cover letter with your application to explain this to the immigration officer processing your application.

5. Photocopy your immigration application and all of your supporting documentation.

6. Have a licensed immigration lawyer review your immigration application. This will help ensure that you did not make any mistakes and everything is in proper order – it can be the difference between being approved or denied!
