The UK requires visa applicants to have their fingerprints scanned and digital photographs made of their face. Applicants will have to personally attend one of five locations in Canada for the biometric scanning. These offices are in Ottawa, Toronto, Vancouver, Edmonton and Halifax. When you apply you must state which location is most convenient for you, as you will be REQUIRED to attend in person for visa processing.
