Completing your application — Uploading and sending documents
Once you’re done filling out each section, you should see a green checkmark and “Complete” beside each row of the table.
Review the information provided carefully and make changes as needed.
Click the blue “Continue” button at the bottom of the page to move on to the list of supporting documents to upload.
Depending on your answers and your citizenship, you may have to provide additional documents, such as police certificate(s) and/or proof of a medical exam performed by a panel physician.
Uploading the checklist documents
You can only upload one file (.PDF, .jpg, .tiff, .doc or .docx) for each requested document. We recommend using PDFs—just make sure they aren’t locked or password-protected!
To upload your documents, click the blue “Upload file” button.
Select the file and click “Upload file.”
You’ll see a message confirming the document selected was successfully uploaded. Note that document names can’t include accent (like “é” or “ö”)—if they do, you’ll get an error message.
You’ll sometimes see the mention “Multiple” next to the requested document(s). This means you have to provide several documents. In this case, all documents must be combined into a single document (for example, a PDF).
- You can scan the different pages, then copy and paste them into a Word document that you will save as a PDF. Make sure the image resolution is acceptable.
- You can use PDFCreator.
- You can use free online PDF mergers, like Sejda.
