You must pay the CIC processing fee when you submit it. $550 each adult plus $150 each child.

When it's approved you pay the "Right of Permanent Residence Fee" of $490 per applicant and spouse (children are exempt).

Don't forget you need to send in proof of funds too at the document request stage, so you'll need to show at least $10,833 (more if there is more than just you on the application) as well.

even doing a diy application your looking at about $3k in application & medical fees & postage costs etc ( 2 adults applying ) and it would be more with children .
On top of this as mentioned above for a fsw cat1 visa you need proof of landing funds as well .
Like they say 'nothing worth having is ever easy' or cheap in this case

only other option is find a job and go on TWP ( cheaper in the short term )but if you intend staying in Canada long term then sooner or later you would need to apply for PR so the above costs will always be waiting.

But if you did it inland and already had a job then wouldn't need that proof of $10,000 of available funds right?

Yes, that's correct. If you have a job offer approved by HRSDC (i.e. a LMO or AEO, not just a written offer), then the proof of funds requirement is waived.

A quick Q about that, if primary applicant gets a job offer LMO thingy, is the full 2 person fee of CAD$13,846 waived? Or does secondary applicant with no job promise, still need to show any unencumbered funds?

Not forgetting Dean, that you can pay your initial fees (and maybe some others?) by Credit Card, if you fancy a bit of debt?!

that would be good if i had a credit card

my understanding is if principle applicant has a job offer the proof of funds is waived for everyone.

Yes, he is working at the mo, although it's been quite sporadic, to say the least over Dec/Jan. Things are just starting to pick up a little now, which is good.

The worst thing has been also the very slow payers, for works done, but people have delayed payment over Dec/Jan too - don't they realise that we're all skint this time of year?!!!

PM me your details & i'll pass 'em on to him. He's working in Normanton all this week, now that isn't that far away from you is it?
