Applicants who need to give their biometrics in the United States can now do so at temporary visa application centres (VACs) in Seattle and San Francisco. The temporary VACs will operate for one year.
These temporary VACs will offer biometric collection services only. All other VAC services can be accessed via the New York and Los Angeles VACs. Applicants in the United States who have received their biometrics instruction letter can also make appointments to give their biometrics at any of the existing VAC or application support centres in the United States.
