Questions on the Citizenship and Immigration Canada application forms for Canadian visas include the applicant’s first name and surname as they appear on his passport or other travel or identity document. Also included is a three-part History section that asks for information about the applicant’s address history, education history and work history.
Other questions on a CIC application vary depending on the type of visa requested; types of visas include an electronic travel authorization, visitor visa, work permit or study permit. The CIC also handles permanent resident and citizenship applications. For assistance with a form, use the appropriate instruction guide published on the CIC website.
Applicants must answer every question on the application form. If any of the questions on the application do not apply to the applicant, he should write “not applicable” or “N/A” in the space. If an answer does not fit on the space allotted on the form, the applicant must attach a separate sheet of paper and reference the letter and number of the question it pertains to.
Applicants must answer all questions on CIC visa application forms in English or French. Applications in other languages must include an English or French translation with a certified photocopy of the original application and an affidavit form the translator.
