Application Fees for Online or In-Person Canadian VISA Application
As per my research and confirmation by CICC office, you should know that the application fees for Canadian VISA application is SAME regardless of application submission method but this application fees may differ based on the type of visa you apply for and with that i think it is worth mentioning that both these application methods require you to submit same type of supporting documents and processing time for both these application methods will also be same.
