Canadaian Immigrant biometric rules kick in
Jamaicans, Haitians and Colombians are the first to feel Canada’s tighter rules requiring applicants’ biometric data for issuing visitor, student and work permit visas.
As of Wednesday, visa applicants from those countries have had to provide fingerprints and pictures along with an $85 fee as Canada rolls out new biometrics requirements first announced last December.
Immigration Minister Chris Alexander says biometrics will help keep undesirable people out of Canada.
“It helps us ensure the security of visitor flows from those countries, and immigrant flows, at the level that we need to keep our country safe,” he said Thursday.
