Hi All,

My parents applied visitor visa on Aug 20 2020 and since then have received request for biometric which will expire around Nov 20, 2020. They are in Bangalore, India and plan to go to the vfs office in there to provide biometrics.

It seems VFS offices across India are closed and there have been no guidelines from IRCC on how to proceed next.

Can you please help us know what are the options at this time?
Can we request biometric exemptions?
How can they come to Canada sooner since we need them with us during these tough times .

P.S: I and my wife are permanent residents in Canada and my parents are Indian Citizen.

Thanks.

My mum is also stuck at the "biometric completed" since March. I read it somewhere that you need to send an email to CIC, I'm not sure.
Have you done anything?
