How to prepare your immigration photos

Immigration Canada requires passport-size digital immigration photos in colour of each applicant.

Be careful to prepare the correct sized photo: The size of the photo varies depending on the application type.

  • Temporary Residence Applications (Work Permits, Study Permits, Visitor Visas)
  • Permanent Residence Applications
  • Permanent Resident Card Applications

For temporary residence and permanent residence applications, you can take your own photo with one of many digital photo apps available online. Google ‘Passport Photo App’ or try one of these apps:
