Help!!

Im already working in Canada, but to get my PR i´ve been asked for biometrics. Is there any way of doing biometrics inside Canada? Do I need to leave the country just to do biometrics?

I have asked for an extension cause Im not able to leave right now, but still didnt have any confirmation. I must submit it before 5th july. Do you know if they are giving extension? and for how long?
what is gonna happen if i dont submit it on time???

Thank you

1. No, you can't do Biometrics in Canada.
2. IRCC will probably give you a little leeway, usually 30 days, then you would probably get a letter along the lines, if you don't do them, "it would appear that you are no longer interested in Emigrating and your application has been closed"

Hi. Have you already submitted your biometrics and did they gave you an extension for it? I still haven't submitted mine although in the applicant information under the biometrics, my previous biometrics for my working visa application is already there. I emailed ircc through the webform if I still have to submit biometrics since I am already in Canada and they replied that they already forwarded my enquiry to the proper authorities and I just have to wait for further instructions. My biometrics was due on Sept 6.

Submit your application first and then you'll receive a biometrics instruction letter usually within a month after submission.
At least now you'll be able to do your biometrics inside Canada.

thanks for the reply, i am just so confused now as a lawyer told me i have to submit bio along with other documents. do you know someone who submitted the application without Bio after Dec 03 as eff date of new rules?

I don't think you can do biometrics without the Biometrics Instruction Letter and usually that letter will be sent to you after you submitted your application. Perhaps what your lawyer meant was that you need to pay for the biometrics when you submit your application.
