Applicants going for permanent residence (PR) are now required to submit biometrics since 14 June, even if they have provided them before while applying for a temporary residence permit.
Updating the published policy shows that IRCC is again adopting pre-pandemic procedures for permanent resident applications. IRCC was enacting a policy in the Global Case Management System (GCMS) during the COVID-19 pandemic. The policy didn’t ask Canada PR applicants to provide biometrics again if they had already submitted them at the time of applying for a temporary resident permit in the last 10 years.
