On September 15, 2020, IRCC announced that Service Canada Centres are gradually resuming their biometrics collection services for Permanent Resident applicants who have received a biometrics instruction letter.
A Service Canada officer will call the applicant at the telephone number they provided in their Permanent Residence application to schedule an appointment. Service Canada is prioritizing applicants who have been waiting the longest to give their biometrics, based on the date their application was submitted. Applicants will not need to pay an additional fee. Biometrics collection services are currently only available for Permanent Residence applicants who have been contacted in this manner.
If you have any questions about the biometrics requirement for Permanent Residence applications or about the Permanent Residency application process in general, do not hesitate to contact one of our lawyers at Borders Law Firm.
