How to fill out immigration application forms properly

Tip 1: If you’ve completed your immigration application package and are ready to submit it for processing, speak with a licensed immigration attorney first. While this might be your first immigration application, they have helped thousands of people with their applications and may be able to spot errors or issues that you missed.

Tip 2: Instead of leaving blank spaces on a form when something does not apply to you, write the words “not applicable”. This will prevent you from leaving blank spaces on your application form, which could be misconstrued as mistakes.

Tip 3: Instead of just leaving something out of your application because you could not obtain it (such as a required supporting document), write a brief cover letter to include with your application that explains the situation. This way, it’s not as if something is just missing without explanation.

Tip 4: Always read and make sure that you understand the application form before you begin filling it out. If there are any instructions on the form itself or related to the filling out of the form, follow them to the letter.

Tip 5: Photocopy your application forms and supporting documents before your application package is submitted. Submit your application via courier, and photocopy the courier slip as proof that it was sent.
