The Government of Canada is pleased to announce that Canadian officials will be in Antigua from 19 to 22 July 2022 to carry out biometric processing for persons wishing to obtain visas. CLICK HERE TO JOIN OUR WHATSAPP GROUP.
As part of the visa application process, Antigua and Barbuda nationals must provide biometric information (fingerprints and a photo) when applying for a Canadian visitor visa, study, work, or temporary residence permit, or for permanent residence.
During the upcoming July dates, Antigua and Barbuda visa applicants may take the opportunity to provide biometric information in Antigua rather than travelling abroad.
Outside of this visit, standard procedures remain for Antigua and Barbuda nationals to travel to biometrics collection points in Barbados, Saint Lucia, St. Vincent and the Grenadines, or Trinidad and Tobago at all other times.
If you are planning to travel to Canada for study, business, tourism, family reunions or other reasons, please complete your online visa application as soon as possible in order to take advantage of this opportunity in July.
This exercise is geared towards the following individuals:
1 Antigua and Barbuda nationals who anticipate travel to Canada;
2. Persons who have already applied whether online or by mail for a visa, work or study permit or for permanent residence and have received their Biometric Instruction Letter;
and 3. Nationals of other biometric information-required countries residing in Antigua and Barbuda planning to travel to Canada.
In order to book an appointment for biometrics collection, please write to [email protected] referencing your visa application file number.
All applicants will be required to bring their Biometrics Instruction Letter with them to their appointment in order to have their biometrics taken.
Canadian officials will be pleased to assist applicants who have both appointments and the required Biometrics Instruction Letter during the hours listed below.
Officials will not be collecting applications or biometric information from applicants who have not received this letter.
The biometrics collection will take place from 08:30 to 17:30 on Tuesday, July 19, Wednesday, July 20, Thursday, July 21 and Friday, July 22, 2022 at the Siboney Beach Club.
