Post ATTN: Mr. Andrew Miller (Skilled Worker Class Fee )

I had submitted my application for immigration to canada under skilled worker class last month. I am married and have One nine months old baby boy.
In my application all of the details of my family is given as required, but now at this monent I am not willing to apply for my wife and son due to some financial problems. I am planning to apply for them from Canada after my case processing.
The problem is this the full application package of forms and my document's photocopies were returned to me with the objection that "Amount of fee paid is incorrect". I wrote them a letter describing that for one applicant the amount of fee is correct. It was again returned with the same and additional objection that "Method of payment is incorrect."
I had paid the fee in the designated branch of Standared Chartered Bank and the receipt was attached mentioning 550 CAD as paid Fee.

According to their attached fee schedule the method of payment and fee for one single applicant are correct.


The fee was paid to standared chartered bank, and on their special form of fee payment for immigration.
I also had asked one consultant he told me that may be they need "Power of attorny" from my wife that he can go without me?????

Your reply will be much appriciated.

It is strange - if you did exactly as instructed (paid through one of 13 designated banks in Pakistan and included receipt) then I don't really understand why they still have a problem.

Did you mark your spouse and child as non-accompanying dependants in your application form? What you wrote in the letter accompanying application is irrelevant.

Yes Sir, I have clearly mentioned "One [1]" on the form IMM0008, where there is a question asking "How many family members (including your self) are including in this application for permanent residence in canada?"

But what did you select in each dependant's column on the second page of the same form? This is where you should select "No" checkbox in the question "Will accompany you to Canada".

If you didn't check "No" and/or you checked "Yes" then you obviously applied for them too and fees are due for them as well.

Glad to be of help.

Please note that even if you select them as non-accompanying now they will have to undergo medicals with you as well and if any of your dependants (regardless non accompanying you) is found inadmissible then your application will be refused anyway.

Just a reminder as some applicants are mistakenly thinking that by having potentially inadmissible dependant as non-accompanying they will be approved and later will be able to sponsor such dependant. It is impossible.

Just a comment: Have you calculated the cost difference to leaving them behind initially, taking into account the cost of medical and later sponsorship. All in all you will be paying more plus the grief and cost of a transcontinental family. It may make more sense to wait and save until you have the required funds to meet the requirement for the whole family.
