Our Canadian Permanent Residency Full Application

The Invitation to Apply for Permanent Residency (IRCC ITA) arrived on December 6, 2017 while we were traveling back to General Santos from Davao City where we had our Medical Exam. But we started filing out our online application only on December 8, 2017 and it took us three days before we were able to submit our Canadian Permanent Residency full application.

Actually, we are almost ready in submitting our Permanent Residency full application before the IRCC ITA arrived since the documents were already gathered at the time we submitted our application with NBPNP . Plus we already secured our NBI and upfront Medical beforehand. Also, we only need to fill out only half of the online application form since the data from the Express Entry application was migrated to the Permanent Residency application once we hit the “Continue Application” Button. What took us long was the tedious work of reviewing the data inputted and the documents uploaded.


Once we hit the continue the application button the screen was now directed to the screen where we will choose if we will pay the Right for Permanent Residency Fee (RPRF) upfront or not. Fritz decided to pay the RFRF upfront so as not to worry the payment later on. (Sorry we were not able to do the screen shot) After this screen was the online application (we again was not able to do the screen shot).

After all was filled out, we then need to upload the supporting documents. For easier tracking of the correct document uploaded, the file name of each document was based on the type of document.  To visualize please see screen shots below.


Once we hit the next button, the screen is now shown below:

After transmitting and pay the summary of fees are now shown:

Then we will now need to input the credit card details. If you don’t have credit card, you may use the credit card of your friend.

After the payment transaction was processed, the transaction receipt below will appear.

A minute after the successful submission of our Permanent Residency full application, a message in my email was received that my application was updated. So my account was now below:



The full application was now transmitted and acknowledge. Thank you Heavenly Father. We have made this far through your help. Hope everything will run smothly and the waiting game won’t take that long.

  1. Hello guys,
    I have been really stressed about my situation here. My agent is slow and not discussing everything with me. I am concerned about 3 things. 1) My name on passport is Amitkumar Laxmansinh Thakor. Amitkumar is first name and Thakor is surname. Laxmansinh is my dad’s name. Now my educational documents ECA has THAKORE, an extra ‘e’ in surname because my educational docs have this name. Now the thing is (plz put up with me i know its getting long but i am stressed with sleepless nights) I just noticed that my employment letter, ctc certificate and monthly salary slips have the name ‘Amit Thakor’ not my full passport name Amitkumar Laxmansinh Thakor. My reference letter, experience and relieving letters have full name as in passport. I made an affidavit saying that Amitkumar laxmansinh Thakor and Amit kumar Thakore are same person but i missed on including ‘Amit Thakor’ of employment letter. 2) My mom transferred about 12000 cad to my salary account a couple months back and my total balance is about 15000 cad. this account also shows my monthly salary being paid in my account. I asked my agent so many time. Should i make gift deed, affidavit etc for this thing.? and i am just being played ” i will tell you when thats required”
    3) now last year my visit visa to UK was rejected due to stupid reasons like lack of ties and i didnt provide my bank statement proof that my salary is being deposited(WHICH I DID GIVE AND THAT UK OFFICER JUST DIDNT SEE IT) and rejected my visa. now my agent sent me a list to fill up like any visa refusal, when and the reason for refusal. now i am confused should i put all these clarification in LOE as why my visit visa was refused. and where to attach the affidavit.?
    I freakin did everything before hand like gave him and IELTS AND WES report but i did even get to look at how my profile looks like. i got my ITA last month, everything is ready but i dont even know how the checklist looks like

  2. Congratulations!! wish you the best in Canada :)
    I have a question if you could help. I am applying for Canadian permanent residency and I am wondering about uploading the translated documents correctly. Should I upload only the following
    – original document
    – Certified English translation
    – Affidavit
    Or should I add a certified photocopy of the original as well?
    I would really appreciate your help with this question
    Thank you

    1. Based on the CIC website, you should also send certified photocopy of the original document.
      Please refer to the link below:

      What language should my supporting documents be in?
      Unless we tell you otherwise, all supporting documents must be in English or French.

      If it is not in English or French, you must send it with:

      the English or French translation and
      an affidavit from the person who completed the translation and
      a certified photocopy of the original document

  3. Congratulations guys! I have a question hope you could help me with.
    For the documents that ar not in English like police clearance and marriage certificates, the cic instructions are not clear regarding the translated documents.
    For my case, I prepared my documents like that
    1- colour scanned certified translation
    2- colour scanned original document attached to the translation
    3 – colour scanned affidavit from the translator
    Is it ok? I will really appreciate your help! Thanks

  4. Hello,
    Congratulations guys for receiving your PR, and wishing you the best in Canada.
    I received a nomination from New Brunswick on May 23rd, 2018 and expecting to receive IRCC ITA within 2 or 3 weeks max. I have some questions concerning IRCC ITA documents, that I hope you guys would help me with:
    1- Is it okay to upload the same scanned documents that were sent for NBPNP, or we should issue new documents like marriage certificate, bank statements, and reference letters?
    2- Should we send reference letters concerning my spouse work experiences, even if we don’t claim points for it?
    3- If my job is distant, should I state that on my Express Entry Profile, before receiving ITA? and should I submit a reference letter only, or pay stubs and contract should be also included?
    Thank you very much in advance.

    1. Thank you Dina ? see you in NB. 1. Yes we send the same docs in IRCC 2. No need but in our case we send ref letter since my wife has available ref letter 3. In my case I did indicate in my EE profile that I work offshore and included COE letter that in line with the NOC, 6 months bank transfer email for my salary. Include everything that you think it might help to prove your work experience…

      Hope this can help
