COVID-19 Travel Restrictions and Requirements

Coronavirus disease (COVID-19): Travel restrictions, exemptions and advice.

Travelers please consult the Government of Canada Travel Wizard. 

Biometrics Data Collection

If you need to provide your biometrics, you can go to the closest VAC (Visa Application Centre). You need to contact VFS Global in order to schedule an appointment.

Your application won’t be refused or closed if you can't give your biometrics due to COVID-19 closures.

Embassy closed to the public

Due to the Coronavirus pandemic, please note that the immigration Office of Canada in Mexico is offering essential services only. The Embassy does not receive the public on matters related to immigration procedures.

You can still apply online for a visitor visa or for a work permit or study permit.

Pending applications

In the meantime, individuals who have applied for a visitor visa, a work permit, a study permit or for permanent residence, but who cannot complete the next steps in the process on time due to the current situation in their country of residence, will not have their application refused solely on the basis of not completing these requests. More time (extensions) will automatically be provided to applicants in these situations. You don't need to send an email to IRCC to request an extension.

Find quick and direct answers to frequently asked questions, including technical questions about your online application, at IRCC's Help Centre.
