Whether you’re going to Canada as a visitor, an international student, a foreign worker or a new immigrant, you will need to apply for a visa. In the Philippines, the Government of Canada has authorized VFS Global as its Visa Application Centre Philippines.




Some Visa Application Centres start limited operations, but not in the Philippines

As COVID-19 travel restrictions are easing around the world, Visa Application Centres (VACs) have begun limited operations, but not yet in the Philippines.

VACs collect biometrics, which is an important part of their applications for Temporary Resident Visa (TRVs).

The VAC for the Philippines, VFS Global, said that they have been instructed by Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) minister Marco Mendecino that all paper applications submitted after April 9, 2020 to be returned.

Applications made online at this link will still be accepted.

Mendecino’s instructions are valid until June 30, 2020.

All TRV applications that do not meet Canada’s travel restriction exemptions will also be returned to applicants at this time.
