Canadian Immigration Refunds Explained

Understanding Refunds for Canadian Immigration Applications: Your Guide to Eligibility

March 30, 20242 min read

Dreaming of migrating to Canada? Navigating the immigration application process can be complex, and there may come a time when you need to consider a refund. Whether it's due to refusal of your application, withdrawal from consideration, or an overpayment, understanding the refund eligibility criteria is crucial. Let's break it down:

Refusal of Application: If your application is refused by Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC), refunds are generally not provided once processing begins. However, exceptions exist for certain fees like the right of permanent residence fee, the right of citizenship fee, open work permit fee (for eligible cases), employer compliance fee, and International Experience Canada (IEC) fees.


Withdrawn Application: If you decide to withdraw your application before IRCC begins processing it, you may be eligible for a refund. Similar to refused applications, refunds are available for specific fees like the right of permanent residence fee, the right of citizenship fee, open work permit fee (for eligible cases), employer compliance fee, and IEC fees.

Application Returned by IRCC: If IRCC returns your application due to reasons like incompleteness, submission before program re-opening, or a full program, you'll receive a refund.


Fees Paid but Application Not Submitted: If you pay your application fees online but choose not to submit your immigration application, you can request a refund from IRCC.

Overpayment of Application Fees: If you accidentally overpay your application fees, IRCC will process your application, confirm the overpaid amount, and refund the difference.


Biometrics Fee Refund: Biometrics fees are treated differently from other application fees. While they're not refunded if your application is refused, they must be refunded if biometrics collection doesn't occur or if it happens in error (e.g., when not required or exempted).

Remember, each case is unique, and it's essential to review IRCC's guidelines carefully to determine your eligibility for a refund. If you believe you're eligible, you can request a refund online, but keep in mind that processing may take up to eight weeks. For more detailed information, visit IRCC's official website or seek guidance from reputable immigration consultants.
