VAC consent form for PRTD
 
Hey,

I'm confused about the biometrics part of the VAC consent form. The IRCC says I shouldn't need to provide biometrics for my PRTD. But the consent form makes it sound like it's a choice (wishing vs not wishing to provide), and that I can be refused if I put not willing. Should I just say I'm willing just in case? Thank you

I did my PRTD a couple of months ago and filled in the section stating that I was willing to provide biometrics – but you're right, it's not a requirement and you shouldn't be asked to provide them.

Awesome thank you. Could I ask how long it took for you to get your PRTD?

One month exactly from sending the passport in to getting it back. Others here have reported turnaround times of around two to three weeks – I think the Ukraine situation may have slowed things a little at the High Commission (also my residency requirement was met through living in UK with Canadian partner for the past four years so I had to submit evidence relating to that; not sure if my application required additional checking / processing as a result).
