Answer: You’re temporarily exempt from giving biometrics. If you applied in Canada for a visitor visa, study or work permit, or permanent residence, you don’t have to give your biometrics until 2019, when the biometrics collection service is established in Canada.

What happens when you arrive in Canada. If you’re applying for the first time, you need to give your biometrics (unless you’re exempt). See who needs to give biometrics. If you’ve given your biometrics before as part of an application for a visitor visa or study or work permit, your biometrics are probably still valid.

Biometrics are used at both the application and entry into Canada phases. Biometrics allow visa officers to screen applicants for prior criminal convictions or Canadian immigration infractions. A traveller’s biometrics are also used when they enter Canada to confirm his or her identity.

Anyone planning a visit to Canada would have to go through the biometrics process while applying for a Canadian visa. This applies to people who are going to visit Canada for a holiday or for studies or even for employment. You may also have to provide your biometrics while living in Canada to extend your student or permanent resident visa.
