Temporary changes to biometrics

Book your biometric appointment as soon as you can to avoid processing delays.

If you can’t book an appointment by the deadline on your biometric instruction letter, there may be measures in place to help you.

Biometrics collection service disruptions

If your biometrics collection site is not open due to COVID-19, there are temporary measures in place for biometrics.

Designated Service Canada offices

Service Canada offices have resumed biometrics collection services for permanent residence applicants who need to give biometrics and haven’t given them within the last 10 years.

You can make your appointment to give biometrics using the eServiceCanada Appointment Booking Tool. Don’t go to a Service Canada office unless you have a scheduled appointment.
