Paying customs debt, student loans, or amounts to other government areas

The CRA may contact you about a debt you owe to another government area. We do not accept payments directly for these types of debt.

To find out how to pay customs debt or make other payments to Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA), visit: How to pay the CBSA.

To find out how to pay Canada Student Loans or Canada Apprentice Loans or make other payments to Employment and Social Development Canada (ESDC), visit: Payment instructions for ESDC.

Processing time

  • Considered as paid: the same or next business day (varies based on your bank or credit union)
  • Updated in your CRA account up to 3 business days after the payment is received

You can confirm if we received a payment.

If your payment is still not showing after 3 business days, you can resolve a payment issue.
