UCI stands for “unique client identifier.” It is also known as a client identification number (client ID). It’s on official documents you receive from IRCC.
It has either:

  • four numbers, a hyphen and four more numbers (Example: 0000-0000), or
  • two numbers, a hyphen, four numbers, a hyphen and four more numbers (Example: 00-0000-0000)

You will not have a UCI number yet if you are applying to IRCC for the first time.
