How to get started with immigration forms
Posted On August 1, 2021
The first thing you need to know is that the government has introduced a new immigration form to help you get your family members to Canada.
The new form will be on hand at the Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) offices at 6:00 a.m. on June 30, 2020.
If you’re arriving at the border by air or sea, you’ll need to fill out the form.
Once you’ve filled it out, you can then contact the CBSA to get your name, date of birth and a photograph of yourself and your family member.
If you’re returning from a holiday or business trip, the form will ask for the date and time of your return.
The CBSA has said that this form is meant to be used in situations where you have family members coming to Canada to stay for at least 72 hours, such as if you’re visiting your relatives for a holiday, you are planning to come back and you have no other family members in Canada.
If the border services agency is unable to provide you with the information you need, they will contact you to arrange for a border crossing.
There are some exceptions, though, if you are returning from business or travel and have a partner who is also travelling to Canada with you.
If that partner is travelling with you, you must provide the information required under the Immigration and Refugee Protection Act.
You can use the form to contact the border crossing to apply for asylum, which means that your partner must come with you on your journey.
The form can be filled out at the CBPA offices at either 6:30 a., 7:00 p.m., 7:30 p.p.m..
and 9:00 am.
It is also available on the CBIS website.
The form can also be used to apply to enter Canada on a work permit, if your employer or a foreign partner wants you to do so.
The border services are still looking into whether the form is mandatory, and if so, whether it’s a good idea to use it.
In the meantime, if there are issues with the form, you might want to try calling ahead to see if you can get it sent to you.
