Getting Started

Know which documents you will need to support your application when you begin.

To start the application process, you will need proof of citizenship. Some documents, such as the police criminal record check, involve a third party to send them. Make sure you plan for these documents to prevent any delays at the end of the application process.

For instance, the criminal record check can take six to eight weeks (or longer) to receive and is valid only for six months after it is issued.
