Good news has been announced for international students in Canada whose new study permit, work permit or visa has been delayed because of a requirement to give biometrics (fingerprints). Immigration, Refugee and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) has announced an exemption for pending and new applications made in Canada, in effect until further notice. Applicants who have already paid the $85.00 biometrics fee will automatically receive a refund.
Some Carleton students have been waiting for a decision on their application since early this year because of the biometrics appointment wait times and the closure of Service Canada collection points in March due to COVID-19. They can now move forward with their plans for continued study, co-op work or post-graduation work.
