I see that there is an $85 fee for biometrics that is listed in the fee table for spousal sponsorship. Just wanted to clarify if biometrics are required for everyone seeking permanent resisdence and where i could find the answer in regard to my spouse back home in Africa. The regular fee is $1040 CAN for processing and RPRF. I'm just not sure if i should pay the $85 for biometrics or not. Any help would be appreciated.
