Canada Opens New Visa Centers in Mexico

Canada has opened three new visa application centres (VACs) in Mexico City, Monterrey, and Guadalajara, Mexico.

The new VACs will initially provide biometric collection services only, and then expand the range of services to include transmitting and tracking passports or other documents. In the meantime, applicants can continue to access the full range of services at the existing VAC in Mexico City.

With these new centres, Mexico will have four VACs located in the country’s three largest metropolitan areas.

Applicants can make appointments to give their biometrics at any of the four VAC locations as soon as they receive their biometric instruction letter.

Erickson Insights & Analysis

VACs are managed by private companies that have contracts with the Government of Canada. They don’t represent the Government of Canada. They don’t make decisions about applications and can’t provide any visa-related advice to applicants.
