With B.E.S. you can use our family application forms – they are simple and easy to fill out and they are much shorter than the government form. If you apply directly with the government, you must fill out a separate application for each family member including children and infants.
If you made an error, you will not be able to correct it once B.E.S. have submitted the application for background and security checks. Instead, you must let the interviewing officer know at your interview that changes are needed.
When you apply to Border Entry Services, you will receive email confirmation from firstname.lastname@example.org – please check your junk mail if you have not received this within 48 hours (2 business days) of sending your form. If you do not receive an acknowledgement email. Please get in touch.
Times vary according to the volume of applications received by the government. Generally, your application should be conditionally approved within 12 weeks of submitting it to B.E.S. If you have not received a notification email within 12 weeks of applying, please email email@example.com
Interview slots vary according to location. Some enrollment centers are so heavily subscribed that it can take up to 6 months to get an appointment; other centers have appointments available every week.
Each application is processed individually. We strongly encourage applicants to schedule appointments once conditionally approved rather than waiting on a family member.
Typically, an application can be approved within 1-2 business days. There may be situations where additional information is required, which may delay the approval of an application.
