Steps To Apply For a Canada Visa from Dubai

  1. Download the application form for Canada Visa in Dubai from the official IRCC website
  2. Download the checklist for Canada Visa support documents also from the same site
  3. Print the application form on bond quality, non-glossy white paper. You are recommended to use a good quality laser printer so that the ink does not smudge. Smudged or blurry applications will be delayed or rejected, as will applications that are printed out on inferior paper that could tear any minute.

If the barcodes are not clear, this may slow down your application process considerably. Keep the barcoded sheet on top of all your application forms and supporting documents. Your barcode is your visa application form’s computer identity.
