Default Canadian work visa Biometrics

Hi there, I was wondering if someone could help me
out, so I need my biometrics taking but apparently I can’t get them done in Canada? However, I only have approximately 24 days left to give them and my visa relies on this. Could anyone give me some advice on where I should go to get them done, is it legal to go to America / will they allow a British Citizen to go and get them taken there?

Thank you

Hello and welcome to BE!

I've moved your post to our Immigration forum... there's a couple of threads here somewhere about people who have gone to the US to have their biometrics done.. Where in Canada are you?
You can get more info on the official website - there are also some places at the border you may be able to get them done if you qualify: Where to give your fingerprints and photo (biometrics)
Biometrics
Generally, you need to give biometrics if you apply for a work permit. If you’re eligible to apply at a Canadian POE you can give your biometrics when you apply at these POE locations.

Default Biometrics in Montana

Hi there, I’m wondering if anyone has been to Montana to get their biometrics taken? I’m currently in Canada and need to get my biometrics done urgently for a work visa / IEC so I’m planning on going to Montana as there is nowhere to get them done in Canada. However, I’m wondering if they accept British nationals and wether they do biometrics for British nationals there for my application.

Thanks again.

I'll merge this with your previous thread, as it's essentially a duplicate question.

You'll need to go to a POE, you can't go to an ASC in the US unless you're legally resident there - see the link given to you above.

HTH.

You're only eligible to give biometrics at the POE if you're eligible to apply for your WP there. As the OP is being directed to give biometrics I'm guessing that the WP applied for is an. "outside Canada" one such as IEC. That said some people have been able to get biometrics at the border or at a US ASC but strictly speaking they're not eligible to do so. Another option is to go elsewhere such as Mexico but you need to book ahead unless it's a walk in.
