Visa Application Centers (VACs) around the world are starting to open.


This means foreigners in these locations will be able to complete their bio metrics, which are essential to their applications for visitor visas, work and study permits, and permanent residency.

There is now a total of 23 reported VACs open with limited services:

Austria

Vienna

Bahrain

Manama

China

Beijing

Chengdu

Chongqing

Guangzhou

Hangzhou

Jinan

Kunming

Nanjing

Shanghai

Shenyang

The Netherlands

The Hague

United Arab Emirates

Abu Dhabi

Immigration, Refugees, and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) says they are taking measures to aid in the health and safety of staff and the people who use the services at VACs. Keeping social distancing and hand hygiene at the core of their efforts, the number of people allowed in a VAC may be limited, and staff will frequently clean the VAC. They will also use gloves, face masks, and face shields. Both staff and visitors may be subject to temperature checks, and of course, no list of safety measures would be complete without hand sanitizer.

Travel restrictions still in effect

Canada’s travel restrictions are still in place until June 30 for most foreign nationals. Currently, immediate family members of Canadians are exempt from this measure, as well as work permit holders who are coming to do an essential service in the country, and students whose study permits were approved before March 18. Everyone else who is not a Canadian resident must demonstrate that they are coming to Canada for an essential reason.

All travelers to Canada must quarantine for 14 days upon arrival, and be able to demonstrate to Canadian Border Services Agency (CBSA) officers that they have an adequate quarantine plan.

“While the travel restrictions are still in place, completing further steps in the application process, such as providing bio metrics when possible, will help expedite processing once travel restrictions are lifted,” the government web page says.

A surge of immigration applications is expected to cause processing delays after the travel restrictions are scaled back
