Effective January 20, 2021 VAC centers in India are accepting
biometric enrollment for applicants who have submitted student and
work permit applications. VAC centers had reopened for biometric
enrollment in November, but due to large demand were restricting
appointments to prioritized categories: family class applicants and
those with humanitarian considerations.
This reopening means that the long wait is over for applicants
who need to submit their biometrics before they can travel to
Canada to work or study. They are now able to contact a VAC nearest
them to make an appointment. Applicants are required to bring
with them their BIL (Biometrics Instruction Letter), which they
receive from Immigration Canada when their application is
submitted. For a comprehensive list of available locations,
and to book an appointment, please visit the following site: https://visa.vfsglobal.com/ind/en/can.
