Applicants will be allowed to book appoints for Canada’s immigration department’s in-person services. Also, the unavailable virtual immigration services have gradually resumed on September 21.
New protocols and procedures are under trial for in-person services offering due to the COVID-19 pandemic, said Immigration, Refugees, and Citizenship Canada (IRCC).
The services offered during these days include:
“IRCC will contact clients to book appointments based on their file status, location in Canada and other factors,” the immigration department’s media release says, “Client selection is largely based on the date of the client’s application.”
Such in-person services will be available for applicants who have received an appointment schedule from IRCC. With the coming days and regulation trials, IRCC will also start giving appointments for biometrics. Permanent residence applicants who are left with their biometrics will get a call in a few months for an appointment schedule from Service Canada.
Note: Region with a major population where more applicants are left with biometrics i.e. the Greater Toronto Area may have to wait longer for the call.
“We know that this is a challenging and frustrating time and we are grateful for your patience,” IRCC writes. “Service Canada will contact you as soon as they can.”
Permanent residence applicants who are waiting for biometrics have been warned not to visit a Service Canada Centre unless they have been called for an appointment. Applicants whose contact information has changed or if they had a representative apply on their behalf can update their details on the IRCC webform.
In support of IRCC staff and clients protection against coronavirus, below mentioned safety measures are being put in place,
