Visitor visa: How to apply
We’re prioritizing applications from people who are eligible to travel to Canada right now
- We strongly encourage you to wait until you’re eligible to travel to Canada before you submit a visitor visa application.
- The information you submit with your application will be the most up to date, which will reduce delays in the processing of your application.
- If you already submitted an application for a visitor visa and will be eligible to travel starting in September, instructions will be available soon.
How to apply
Your fingerprints and photo (biometrics)
Normally, you need to give biometrics. If your local visa application centre is not open due to COVID-19, there are temporary measures in place for biometrics.
