The government of Canada introduced a new process that allows extended family members of Canadian citizens or Permanent residents to enter Canada.
The “Extended Family Members” include:
- Individuals in an exclusive dating relationship with a Canadian citizen or permanent resident for at least 1 year,
- Non-dependent child (adult children)
- Siblings (including half and step siblings)
The Extended Family Members will need to prepare the completed and signed “Application for authorization and statutory declaration (IMM0006)” and a written authorization from the IRCC. The written authorization is a letter from the IRCC confirming that the family member is exempt from the travel restrictions. It is important that you do not make any travel plans until all the required documents are obtained.
The extended family members will be subject to the mandatory 14-day quarantine period.
We can assist you with either the application, the notarization of the form IMM0006, or both.
