HOW TO E-FILE A FORM

e-Filing is an add-on module that allows you to quickly populate data into certain e-File-able forms. The e-Filing component is a program that will need to be downloaded and installed on your computer. Once it is installed, you will not need to log in to the eIMMIGRATION website in order to e-File a form. This component is only compatible with Microsoft Windows based PCs. If you are interested in learning more about the e-Filing module, please contact your sales manager. For our E-Filing video, click here.

1. From the eIMMIGRATION home page, click on the e-filing icon (You can also start the installed e-filing program from your computer, and skip to step 3).

3. Verify your Login credentials. The website name is the your office's virtual directory (for example, if you go to https://www.eimmigration.com/cerenade.caseworker, the website name would be Cerenade). The username and password are the credentials you use to login to the caseworker portal.

4. You will be directed to eIMMIGRATION eFiling. There will be a list of the forms that are ready to e-file. To start on a form, click on e-File.
