Temporary Policy Allowing Permanent Residence Applicants to Rely on Biometrics Previously Submitted

Until further notice, permanent residence applicants who previously gave their biometrics in support of an immigration application within the past ten years do not have to give their biometrics again. Permanent residence applicants covered by this exemption should not pay the $85 biometrics fee, even if the system asks them to pay it when they submit their application. Eligible permanent residence applicants who have already paid the fee will have it refunded to them.
