Where to give your fingerprints and photo (biometrics)

You can go to one of these official locations to give your biometrics. We encourage you to make an appointment if that’s an option at your location.

  • Visa application centres (VACs) worldwide
    • You can go to any VAC – it doesn’t have to be in your country of residence.
    • VACs also offer other services in local languages.
  • Application Support Centers (ASCs) in the United States
    • You can only go to an ASC if you got a letter from us that tells you to give biometrics.
    • No other services are offered (only biometrics collection).
    • ASCs are also available in some U.S. overseas territories.
  • Temporary locations at certain offices in Europe

Most international students and temporary workers need to give their biometrics at a VAC, ASC or temporary location in Europe.

Only certain applicants can apply for a study or work permit at a Canadian port of entry (POE).

  • If you’re eligible to apply at a Canadian POE as an international student or temporary worker, you can give your biometrics at same time you apply at these POE locations.
    • If you started the application process online, by mail or at a VAC, you can’t finish your application process and give your biometrics at a POE. If you try to do this, you risk being unable to enter Canada.
  • If you’re not eligible, you can’t give your biometrics at a POE.
