Payment Schedule and Stages of Processing

Free - for Basic Preliminary Assessment - non-binding service of your CSICo Preliminary Assessment Application below.

$120 - for Official Initial Consultation -  for information provided, and to establish a bona-fide working relationship, to record     your intended purpose, and to sign an Initial Consultation Agreement. This is non-refundable, but creditable to CSICo retainer fee.

Professional Retainer Fee (See CSICo Services for fees) - for comprehensive and exhaustive preparation and processing  when you are truly eligible to apply, and to sign a Retainer Agreement. CSICo does not request this fee upfront until you feel truly qualified.


Retainer Agreement – is a service contractual engagement between you and CSICo to set out the exact duties and clear expectations of both parties. If you proceed with CSICo immigration processing services, you will be billed for professional retainer fee. The payment terms and conditions will be detailed in the Retainer Agreement. Typically, the retainer fee will be paid in 2 instalments, such as when you provide your documents for review and sign the Retainer Agreement (25%); and then when the final application package is submitted to IRCC (75%). This fee is non-refundable as IRCC has the final decision for subjective pass or fail of the application. Note that default of payment of the retainer fee may jeopardize your immigration opportunity and/or status in Canada.


The federal government processing fees and other disbursements or miscellaneous expenses will be paid up front or/and at time of your complete application package submission. These are separate payments from CSICo professional consultation/retainer fees.


All payments are to be paid to by bank draft or money order (or personal check for local).


Good luck !
