Are you worried about missing the deadline to submit your biometrics?

Are you worried about missing the deadline to submit your biometrics?


Missed Biometrics Appointments | Deadline Extended

All biometrics appointments in Canada and the United States (Application Support Center) are cancelled until further notice.

If you received a biometrics instruction letter as part of an Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) immigration application, and have not been able to give your biometrics yet due to Special Immigration Procedures Due to Coronavirus / COVID-19, IRCC is now automatically giving you 90 days from the date on the letter (instead of 30) to give your biometrics:

    • The 30-day timeline indicated in your biometrics instruction letter is automatically extended to 90 days.
    • You don’t have to contact IRCC or your immigration attorney to get this extension.
    • You need to schedule a new biometrics appointment when service centers start collecting biometrics again.
    • You do not need a new biometrics instruction letter to schedule a future appointment.

For more information, visit the IRCC website.
