The Visa Application Centre in Rome, Italy is currently closed to the public. The resumption of services at the Visa Application Centre is subject to authorization from local government authorities. The Embassy of Canada in Italy is providing essential services only. No biometric collection is available at the Embassy of Canada.

Permanent residents of Canada who need to submit an application for a permanent resident travel document may do so at the Embassy of Canada. No other applications can be submitted at the Embassy of Canada. All applications for temporary resident visa, work permits, and study permits must be made online. Applicants who are the children or spouses of Canadian citizens or individuals who have urgent humanitarian and compassionate reasons for travelling to Canada should contact romeimmigration@international.gc.ca for information.

If you have already submitted an application and have been asked to complete next steps (such as providing biometrics, completing a medical exam, or submitting your passport), an automatic time extension has been granted. This extension is automatic; there is no need to contact Immigration, Refugees, and Citizenship Canada to confirm. 

Once Visa Application Centre services have resumed and it is possible to complete these requests, applicants are encouraged to do so as soon as possible to avoid further delays. Please monitor the website of VFS Global.
