Printing your visa application form
Please be inform that due an internal IT issue, IRCC recommend the usage of Adobe Reader Version 11 (Older Version) to open and print your Visa Application Form, instead of using the new updated Adobe Reader version 2019.012.20036.
Please note that printing your 2D barcode with the newest Adobe Reader may affect the scanning process in the VAC and may cause the Visa Application Forms to be unreadable in the IRCC system and delay the processing time in the Visa Application Center.
