If I’m applying for temporary residence in Canada, do I have to give my biometrics? No! Read more below!
This new policy applies to you if you are applying for:
– an extension of a work permit, or a new work permit
– an extension of a study permit, or a new study permit
– a visitor visa, or a visitor record to allow you to stay in Canada as a temporary resident
– restoration (extension) of temporary resident status, or a temporary resident permit
DO NOT pay the biometric fee, even if IRCC’s online system asks you to pay it when you submit your application.
If you do pay the biometric fee and you receive a biometric instruction letter, you DO NOT have to give your biometrics if you’re in Canada and applying for temporary residence. A refund will be given to you later.
