There is a question related to Where can I get my biometrics done for my Canadian visa application in Miami?. I just want to be 100% sure that I'm doing things right.

Reading in the website the following of the Government of Canada, they have the following guidelines:

If applying from within the United States

-If you need to give your biometrics, you can no longer mail in your application to a Canadian visa office in the U.S. You must submit your biometrics to the VAC in New York or California, or apply online. -CIC will send you a biometric instruction letter by mail or by email through your MyCIC account when we receive your online application. Read this letter, print a copy and bring it, along with your passport or other travel document, to an Application Support Centre (ASC) to give your biometrics. -Go to a VAC in New York or Californa, or go to an ASC between the hours of 11:00 a.m. and 2:00 p.m. You do not need to make an appointment. -Go to the ASC that is closest to the zip code you gave on your application. -Your $85 CAD biometric fee covers the cost of having your biometrics taken at the ASC. ASCs do not accept immigrant or temporary resident applications and cannot provide information or application handling services. -Find your closest ASC.

However, if I go the to my closest ASC, which is located in Wisconsin, they say the following:

Case Services The only after filing service that is provided by an ASC is fingerprinting. Fingerprinting services are by appointment only and are related to an application for an immigration benefit. You will be notified about an ASC appointment by mail. You should follow the instructions on the appointment notice to reschedule the appointment.

Do I have to go to a VAC? Can I get my biometrics taken in an ASC? - I have to make an appointment, and if that's the case. How do I do it?

  • The biometrics needed are fingerprints and a picture so the WI ASC should do just fine, why do you think you need to go to a VAC ?
