Canada To Provide Biometric Processing For Visa Applications In Grenada

PR The Government of Canada  is pleased to announce that Canadian officials will be in Grenada from Monday, November 6 to Wednesday, November 8, 2023, to carry out biometric processing for persons wishing to obtain visas. 

As part of the visa application process, nationals from Grenada must provide biometric information  (fingerprints and a photo) when applying for a Canadian visitor visa, study, work, or temporary  residence permit, or for permanent residence. During the upcoming November dates, visa  applicants may take the opportunity to provide biometric information in Grenada rather than  travelling abroad. Outside of this visit, standard procedures remain for Grenada nationals to travel  to biometric collection points in Barbados, Saint Lucia, St. Vincent and the Grenadines, or Trinidad  and Tobago. 

If you are planning to travel to Canada for study, business, tourism, family reunions or other  reasons, please complete your online visa application as soon as possible in order to take  advantage of this opportunity in November. This exercise is geared towards the following  individuals: 

  1. Grenada nationals who anticipate travel to Canada;
  1. Persons who have already applied whether online or by mail for a visa, work or study  permit or for permanent residence and have received their Biometric Instruction Letter;  and, 
  2. Nationals of other biometric information-required countries residing in Grenada planning  to travel to Canada. 

To book an appointment for biometric collection, please write to: BDGTN 

Please note the cut-off date for scheduling an appointment is Tuesday, October 31, 2023, and  there are a limited number of appointments available for the three-day collection visit.  Appointments will be scheduled on a first come, first served basis. We will not be able to  accommodate appointment requests after that date unless cancellations are received. 

Canadian officials will be pleased to assist applicants who have appointments and the required  Biometric Instruction Letter and passport in hand during the hours listed below. Officials will not  be collecting applications or biometric information from applicants who have not received this  letter. 

The biometric collection will take place from 09:00 to 16:30 on Monday, November 6, and 08:30  to 16:30 on Tuesday, November 7 and Wednesday, November 8, at the True Blue Bay Boutique Resort, Old Mill Road, True Blue Bay, St. George’s.
