Fees and payment methods


Application processing fees are updated in January of each year. Carefully check the required fees to ensure that your application is not returned to you without being processed.

The required fees levied by the Québec government to process an undertaking application are as follows:


Fees in effect as of
January 1, 2021
Number of sponsored persons
Fees payable
$410 ($293 + $117)
$527 ($293 + $117 + $117)

You must allow $293 for the principal sponsored person and $117 for each additional person.

If you are only sponsoring minor children, and if you must complete a sponsorship application for each child, you will pay $293 for the first sponsored child, and $117 for each additional child.

First child: $293 plus 2 children ($117 + $117 = $234) = $527



The required fees must be paid in full, in Canadian currency only, by you or by a third party, when the application is dropped off or mailed. These required fees are not refundable, even if your application is refused.

Payment methods

Payment in cash and traveler’s cheques is not accepted. The following methods of payment are accepted:

  1. Credit card

    You must complete the form Payment by credit card.

    Note: Clearly indicate the amount to be paid on the form, sign it and enclose it with your application, otherwise it will be returned to you. If your credit card payment is declined, the Ministère will not contact you to advise you of the refusal and your entire file will be returned to you by regular mail.

  2. Canada Post money order
    Bank draft drawn on a Canadian bank
    Certified cheque drawn on a Canadian bank
    Cheque issued by a currency exchange broker

    ATTENTION! Cheques and bank drafts must be made payable to the Minister of Finance of Québec and must be mailed with your file to the Ministère de l'Immigration, de la Francisation et de l’Intégration. Be sure to print the name of the applicant in block letters on the back of the cheque. Payment in cash, by personal cheque or by traveller’s cheque is not accepted.

BY MAIL: You must include, in the same envelope, the form duly completed and signed, all of the documents required depending on your situation (appendices, declarations, etc.) as well as payment of the required fees to the office of the Ministère that is processing your application.


Note: If your sponsorship is subject to a financial evaluation, please consult the financial scales.
