What is IMM5476?
The IMM5476 is the use of a representative form. It is a PDF document that immigration candidates need to submit with IRCC when they want to appoint a representative.
A representative conducts the immigration process on behalf of the candidate and candidate’s family members. In detail, a representative is considered anyone who is going to conduct business with CIC for the candidate and with the candidate’s permission.
Your representative can be your family member, friend, lawyer, and as well as an immigration consultant. Once you appoint a representative, s/he will fill out all the necessary forms, submit your application, and give information about your application to CIC.DOWNLOAD IMM 5476
What are the requirements for the IMM 5476?
As a candidate, you only need to use this form if you are preparing to appoint a representative for your application on immigration to Canada. Also, your consultant may also complete an application for submission on behalf of you using a consultant portal. When your documentation is complete, the main applicant and as well as his/her spouse or common-law partner are also required to sign the form.
Please note that, if the candidate has any accompanying dependent child of 18 years of age or older, then s/he will also need to fill out and sign their own IMM5476 forms for the visa. However, they would not need to do this if the cic representative is not managing the process on their behalf.
In brief, the following persons would need to submit the online IMM5476e form:
- The principal applicant
- His/her spouse or common-law partner
- Any accompanying dependent child of 18 years old or older
