Special Immigration Measures Program for Afghans who assisted the Government of Canada

Don’t become a victim of fraud

There’s no fee to be considered for this special program, and there are no agents or consultants acting on our behalf. Only Global Affairs Canada or the Canadian Armed Forces can confirm ties with the Government of Canada. Learn more about avoiding fraud for this program (also available in Pashto and Dari).

We’ve received enough applications to fill all spots for this special program.

We’ll continue to prioritize processing all eligible applications. To have an eligible application in process, you must have received an invitation to apply (ITA) and then submitted an application.

  • Expressing an interest in the program or sending an e-mail to us is not an application.
  • The ITA would have come directly from IRCC
    • It would have given you instructions on how to complete and submit the application form and documents needed for you and your eligible family members.

If you didn’t receive an ITA, you can learn more about our regular immigration programs, such as our economic, family reunification and refugee resettlement programs.

If you’re in Afghanistan and plan to leave

The Government of Canada remains firm in its commitment to welcome vulnerable Afghans to Canada.

If you plan to leave Afghanistan, you must check and follow the travel requirements of the country you plan to enter or travel through. Along with your passport, you may need to get a visa to legally enter another country.

It’s important to follow the immigration laws of countries you plan to enter. If you don’t, you could

  • be detained
  • be unable to leave the country or
  • get deported back to Afghanistan

This can make it harder to get help to travel to Canada or any other country in which you plan to resettle.

اگر قصد خروج از افغانستان را دارید، لطفاً خود را از شرایط سفر به کشوری هایکه قصد دارید وارد آن شوید یا از ان کشور ها بگزرید باخبر بسازید. برعلاوه از پاسپورت، شما نیاز به اخذ ویزه دارید تا بشکل قانونی وارد یک کشور دیگر شوید.

مهم است تا از قوانین مهاجرت کشورهای که پلان دارید وارد آن شود باخبر باشید و پیروی کنید. در غیر ان، ممکن است:

  • توقیف شوید،
  • نخواهد توانست تا ان کشور را ترک کنید یا
  • دوباره به افغانستان شما را روان خواهد کردند.

چنین یک اتفاق می تواند در قسمت دریافت کمک برای سفر به کانادا یا هر کشور دیگری را که قصد زندگی را در آن را دارید، مشکلتر میسازد.

که چېرته تاسو پلان لرئ چې له افغانستان څخه ووځئ، باید هغه هېواد ته د سفر شرایط وګورئ او وڅارئ چې غواړئ ور ننوځئ او یا سفر وکړئ. تاسو باید له خپل پاسپورټ سره ویزه ترلاسه کړئ تر څو په قانوني بڼه بل هېواد ته ننوځئ.

دا مهمه ده چې تاسو د هغو هېوادونو د کډوالۍ قوانین وڅارئ چې غواړئ ور شئ. که تاسو دا کار ونکړئ نو:

  • رد به شئ،
  • و به نکړای شئ چې هېواد پرېږدئ
  • یا بېرته افغانستان ته ستانه شئ.

دا کولای شي کاناډا یا بل هغه هېواد ته ستاسو رسېدل سخت کړي چې غواړ هلته مېشت شئ.

If you’ve already applied after receiving an ITA from us

Once we start processing your application, you’ll get an acknowledgement of receipt letter (with your application number) by e-mail.

You should contact us through our web form if you move or change your telephone number.

It’s important for us to know where you are and how to reach you throughout the process.
