How To Fill Out Immigration Forms

Filling out your immigration forms can be a daunting task, and sometimes you may not know where to even begin. If your immigration forms are incorrectly filled out or you miss some of the information, you can end up having your application denied! How To Fill Out An Immigration Form

Immigration officers are swamped with a high number of applications to process each and every day. The easier your application is to process – meaning it has no errors or omissions – the better chance of success you’ll have.

How to fill out immigration forms

Make sure there are no blank spaces in your immigration forms and be sure to fill them out accurately. If a space must be left blank because it does not apply to you, write “not applicable” in the space so the immigration officer knows you didn’t miss something.

Include all of the proper identification and documents that are required with your application, which may include a resume, academic transcripts or photocopies of your birth certificate and passport. Don’t miss anything.

But is filling out immigration forms properly enough?

Simple answer? No!  If it were only that easy! Filling out forms is unfortuantly a very small part of the immigration application process. Gathering the correct documentation, preparing submissions, submitting the application to the correct immigration office and making sure your application is being processed on time are all part of what makes for a successful immigration case.

Don’t be fooled into thinking all it takes is some forms and paying a fee.
