What if I have a Canadian visa that has not yet expired when you start taking biometrics from citizens of my country or territory?
You need to give your biometrics
You now need to give your fingerprints and photo (biometrics) when you apply for a visitor visa, study or work permit, or permanent residence if you are from Europe, Middle East and Africa.
Find out who needs to give biometrics.
If you have a valid visitor visa, you won't need to give your biometrics until the next time you apply.
