Default How strict are CIC about the signature box on form IMM5455 (PRC supplementary

It's rather hard writing an authentic signature whilst constraining it
to a specific area. A small part of the loop in my letter 'g' dropped
in to the green area outside the white signature box. Are they
sufficiently strict about this form that this very small transgressional
will make them discard it? I don't really want to wait for them to send
me another one. If it is going to cause me grief, perhaps I should try
a remove the 3x0.5mm line...

Cheers,
Malc

If its the same as passports, then they are very strict about it.

Yes they are.

The immigration officer nearly had kittens when my signature almost
touched the green area! The look of horror on her face - wish I had my
camera.

You signed yours in front of an immigration officer? Does that imply I
can go somewhere to get the form rather than waiting for them to mail it
to me?

You had better apply for a new form now, Any alteration of your signature
would also invalidate it.

Oh well, I rang the call centre and managed to get through on their very
busy line. I guess I'm going to have to wait another week before
submitting the application

I was an inland spouse applicant.

Not sure how it lies for other classes...
