Important Information

  • Important Update to the Biometric Enrolment process effective 31 July 2018.

    Effective 31 July 2018, you may need to give your fingerprints and photos (biometrics) at a Visa Application Centre when you apply for a visitor visa, study or work permit, or permanent residence if you are a national of a country or territory in Europe, the Middle East or Africa, or if you are a national of country that is already biometrics required. Visit Canada.gc.ca/biometrics for more information
    • Temporary resident visa, study and work permit applicants only need to give biometrics once every 10 years; and those who already provided biometrics also benefit from this initiative.
    • Permanent residence applicants will need to give biometrics with each application.
  • All applicants are requested to provide the latest version of the application forms and applicable checklist available in IRCC website. Please click here to Find Form and Guides
  • We encourage you to schedule an appointment at the nearest Visa Application Centre either through the VAC website or by calling the call center at +382 20 205 141. Please note priority will be given to applicants with appointments. A planned visit with a preferred time slot at the Visa Application Centre guarantees prompt service thus eliminating longer waiting time resulting in inconvenience.
