Biometrics requirement

Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) requires all foreign nationals to provide biometrics (fingerprints and photo) when applying for a visitor visa, work permit or study permit, permanent residence, or when claiming refugee or asylum status.

All individuals residing in Canada, who submit an application from within Canada for temporary or permanent residence, will not have to provide their biometrics until it is announced that the biometrics collection service in Canada is in place. Biometrics will then only be required when these individuals make a new application, including renewals and extension.

Applicants will have to go in person to an authorized biometrics collection service location to give their fingerprints and have a photo taken, after receiving a Biometrics Instruction Letter from IRCC. Individual applicants will have to pay CAD $85 to provide their biometrics. Families applying together at the same time will pay a maximum total fee of CAD $170. Once provided, biometrics are valid for a period of 10 years.

Additional information is accessible through the IRCC website at https://www.canada.ca/en/immigration-refugees-citizenship/news/2018/06/to-support-biometrics-expansion-canada-is-opening-new-visa-application-centres-and-offering-interim-services-at-some-missions.html.
