Limited visa services will resume at VFS Global Canada visa application centres across India.
Starting from November 25, applicants who have submitted online applications for family class priority (FCP) – spouses, partners and children category – can enrol biometrics at the Canada visa applications centres in six Indian cities namely Delhi, Jalandhar, Chandigarh, Mumbai, Ahmedabad, and Bengaluru.
VFS Global added that effective December 2, applicants who have submitted online applications for categories of student (SP) and FCP can enrol their biometrics at the Canada visa applications centres at Kolkata, Chennai, Hyderabad and Pune.
A prior appointment is mandatory to visit the visa application centre to enrol biometrics. Bookings can be made here.
Customers who have already submitted their applications for these categories will receive a biometric instruction letter from Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada to enrol their biometrics. The letter must be carried for their appointment.
For all other categories, biometric enrolments are not being accepted until further notice. For emergency applications, customers can write to [email protected].
Paper applications will not be accepted at any visa application centre until further notice.
After enrolment of biometrics, customers can submit their passports for stamping and get them delivered back using the company’s courier service. Email at [email protected] to avail this service. Passports must only be submitted upon receipt of a passport request letter from the Migration Section, High Commission of Canada in India.
Once a decision has been made on the application, the decision envelope will be couriered to the customer.
