Citizenship fees

This section contains policy, procedures and guidance used by Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada staff. It is posted on the Department’s website as a courtesy to stakeholders.

In addition to the processing fee, all 5(1) applications submitted for someone aged 18 or over must include the $100 right of citizenship fee. There is no processing fee for applications for a 5(5) grant; however, the $100 right of citizenship fee must be included for all applicants aged 18 and over.
