Travellers applying for Canadian visas will need to submit their biometrics in person at the Pretoria-based VFS application centre, eTNW reports.

Currently, no other South African submission centres had been provided. 

Applicants who are required to submit biometrics will reportedly receive a Biometric Letter of Instruction from the Government of Canada informing them that they will be unable to obtain a Canadian visa without first submitting their biometrics to VFS.

When supplying biometrics, applicants will also need to bring:
• Passport
