The Visa Application Centres (VACs) in India started its operations from today, i.e. 20th November 2020. The Canadian Government stated that it would be limited to few biometric appointments in Delhi, Mumbai, Jalandhar, Chandigarh, Bengaluru, and Ahmedabad. The VACs will give high priority to family class applicants and international students.

After the Covid-19 travel restrictions were lifted, resuming the biometric services was the last hitch for the applicants who applied for Canada immigration. While international students have been relieved from Canada’s travel limitations as of 20th October 2020, Indian students who have not submitted biometrics before couldn’t make a trip to Canada. The equivalent could be said for skilled worker immigrants and family class who are additionally excluded from the travel limitations.
