Are Permanent Residence Application Refusals refundable?

Generally speaking, no, there will not be a refund for a permanent residence application refusal. However, if you applied before the recent legislative changes, you may be entitled to a refund, depending on when you applied, and the reason for the refusal. If you applied before February 27, 2008, the date the major changes to the immigration law took effect, your application would be processed. You will not get a refund unless you choose to withdraw your application before it is processed. If you applied on or after February 27, 2008, and your application is not eligible for processing, you will get a full refund. If your application is available for processing, gets processed but is then refused, you will not get a refund.
