Suitable proof may include a note or other documentation from an official. Please note that this proof only needs to be presented and will not be collected by the VAC, and that this will provide an emergency biometric appointment but not affect IRCC’s processing time for the application. For any further information or questions, the Contact Centre is able to assist with any inquiries.

However, permanent residence applicants will need to give biometrics with each application.

If you have applied for a temporary resident visa, study or work permit in the past and are unsure if the biometrics have been provided, please refer to the IRCC website (Canada.gc.ca/biometrics), and “Find out if your biometrics are still valid”

Refer to the IRCC website for a list of countries that require a visa for temporary residents: https://www.canada.ca/en/immigration-refugees-citizenship/services/visit-canada/entry-requirements-country.html

It is advised that you keep your hands henna-free at the time of your Biometric Appointment to ensure unimpeded biometric enrollment. Non-compliant applicants will be asked to visit the Visa Application Centre with a fresh appointment after 30 calendar days. Kindly adhere to this requirement to avoid delays and multiple visits to the centre
