Hi Guys, I am waiting for my dad visitor visa from June 2020. He has not his biometric as VAC is not accepting biometric request for visitors in India. Anyone in same situation like me .
The application is on hold since he hasn't done his biometrics. Others have travelled to the UAE or Nepal to do biometrics before the spike in covid.

Hello All ,

I am a permanent resident of canada and I am planning to apply for my in-laws visitor visa.

I have below queries

i) If I apply visitor online , by what time I should be expecting biometric ?
ii) Once I received the biometric , How much time I have to submit the biometric request ?
iii) As the VFS in india is not taking biometric appointment , what happens if I am not able to submit biometric request within the requested time frame ?

Biometrics have not been available for visitors in India for a year. They would need to travel abroad usually to UAE or Nepal. That may no longer be possible. Because biometrics aren't possible applications are essentially put on hold until biometrics are possible in India so there is no expiry date

Thank you for the reply. It means I will submit the application and get into the queue of waiting for the biometric for visitor visa to open in india ?

There is no queue. When VFS opens in India for biometrics for visitors they can arrange biometrics. It may be quite a while.

Thank you for the reply. I mean to say that once I applied for visitor visa application, it will be in the processing status till the biometric opened in India. So I hope they may not refuse or reject application ?

Yes your application will essentially be paused until offices open for biometrics.

They have an automatic extension in India. Offices have not been open for visitors to do their biometric for over a year so expiry dates will only return once offices open again.
