Default Form IMM008 generic - what's with those three spaces for passport pix?

Hi everyone.

Regarding form IMM008 Generic, the second page asks me to list details of family members.

I have listed my wife - who is a Canadian citizen by birth and who is sponsoring my application for permanent residency.

I've listed also both of our nine-month-old twin children, who are of course Canadian citizens by birth. (The consular here in London, UK has advised us to apply for temp' passports for them so they can enter Canada with us - then apply for citizenship certificates).

My query: The bottom of this page features space for passport photos of all three family members.

Do I need to go to the trouble of securing passport pix of my wife and children? She is a Canadian by birth and they are also.

If so, and if I put one of these in each of the three spaces provided, do I then need to file with our application an additional eight examples of the same picture - as is the case with me (the applicant)?

Is it just me, or are the guide notes (which I've read three times) hopeless patchy and ambiguous??!

Many thanks for your assistance.

Kind regards,

Scott Neilson

1. Go back read the form again. You don't include the children as they are Canadian. BIG BOLD LETTERS top of page 2.
2. You only require photos for your self.

Although the op has had wrists slapped, i'd still like to know about the spaces for the photos - I didn't do anything with them (other than put photos in the envelope) - do cic stick the photos on the form and copy it or something?

Hi both. Many thanks for your input.

Still slightly confused, however. Given that my wife a Canadian by birth as are my kids, do I still have to go to the trouble of producing eight times passport pix for all three of them, to include in the application?

Many thanks, Scott
