What is the Canada Visa Biometrics Program?

    Biometrics includes the candidate’s fingerprints and a photo. Biometrics were made mandatory for applicants from Africa, Europe and the Middle East from July 31, 2018.

    The Biometrics rule will be made compulsory for applicants from Asia, Asia-Pacific and Americas as well form December 31, 2018.

    Biometrics are necessary for any candidate applying for Canadian visitor visa, work or study permit, permanent residence or asylum in Canada.
