What Documents Do I Need for Express Entry?

List of documents of your Express Entry application

The documents you need for Express Entry varies depending on the program type and by your personal situation. Here is a general list of documents for your Express Entry application:

  • Identity documents
  • Marital status documents
  • Canadian status documents
  • Digital photograph
  • Medical exam
  • Police certificates
  • Proof of settlement funds
  • Work experience documents
  • Education documents
  • Language test results
  • Proof of job offer
  • Proof of relationship to a relative in Canada
  • And more

These documents are used as supporting evidence to prove the information you filled in on your Express Entry profile. The proof is needed because the government can’t rely solely on your good word.

If you believe that a document you submit may raise questions from an immigration officer, you should include a letter of explanation (LoE). Use an LoE wisely to provide more context and relieve the officer of any potential questions that may arise.
