Canada to provide biometric processing for visa application in Antigua and Barbuda

Antigua and Barbuda: The Caribbean country will get a biometric processing of persons wishing to obtain Canadian visas. To take it forward, the official from Canadian government will visit Antigua from July 19 to 22, 2022 and will carry out biometric processing from persons wishing to obtain visas.

As part of the visa application process, Antigua and Barbuda nationals must provide biometric information (fingerprints and a photo) when applying for a Canadian visitor visa, study, work, temporary residence permit, or permanent residence. During the upcoming July dates, Antigua and Barbuda visa applicants may take the opportunity to provide biometric information in Antigua rather than travelling abroad. Outside of this visit, standard procedures remain for Antigua and Barbuda nationals to travel to biometrics collection points in Barbados, St Lucia, St Vincent and the Grenadines, or Trinidad and Tobago at other times.

If an individual is planning to travel to Canada for study, business, tourism, family reunions or other reasons, please complete your online visa application as soon as possible in order to take advantage of this opportunity in July.

This exercise is geared towards the following individuals:

1. Antigua and Barbuda nationals who anticipate travel to Canada;

2. Persons who have already applied, whether online or by mail, for a visa, work or study permit or permanent residence and have received their Biometric Instruction Letter; and

3. Nationals of other biometric information-required countries residing in Antigua and Barbuda planning to travel to Canada.

To book an appointment for biometrics collection, please write to [email protected] referencing your visa application file number. All applicants will be required to bring their Biometrics Instruction Letter to their appointment to have their biometrics taken.

Canadian officials will be pleased to assist applicants with appointments and the required Biometrics Instruction Letter during the hours listed below. Officials will not be collecting applications or biometric information from applicants who have not received this letter.

The biometrics collection will take place from 08:30 am to 5:30 pm on Tuesday, July 19, Wednesday, July 20, Thursday, July 21 and Friday, July 22, 2022, at the Siboney Beach Club.
