Video Tutorial: Fees for Immigration Services IMM53102012-11-29
This tutorial is on the Fees for Immigration Services form IMM5310. Although the form appears fairly straightforward, it is important to get the fee correct. The $200 fee is for less serious offences, and the $1000 fee is for more serious offences (where the equivalent in Canada is 10 years in prison).
Although CIC states that you can pay the $200 fee and they will request additional funds if needed, in my experience, that is not the case. CIC will simply return the file and you’ll have to start again.
Like all of our videos, this video contains only general guidance and not legal advice. You should complete forms using the instructions provided by CIC and with the advice of a lawyer.
