The Canada Visa Application Centre reopens in Manama

Under the  directives received from the Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC), VFS Global, the world's largest visa outsourcing and technology services specialist for governments and diplomatic missions worldwide, has reopened its Canada Visa Application Centre in Manama with strict health and safety guidelines in place.

Located at block 317, the Diplomatic Commercial Office Towers, 18th Floor, Office 2401, the centre restarts operations from 01 June 2020 and will initially limit its visa services to: 

  • Accepting biometric collection from customers who have prior appointment and biometric instruction letter (BIL).
  • Return of passport/supporting documents through courier services or in-person collection at the centre

The centre will not accept any new visa application until further notice.

In order to ensure a safe, productive work environment for employees, while still protecting communities to the maximum extent possible from the spread of the COVID-19 coronavirus, VFS Global has established standardized protective measures to be followed across the centre including specific social distancing and sanitation mandates.

All customers are subjected to body temperature checks at the entrance of the centre to assess their health conditions. Any customer exhibiting COVID-19 symptoms, including high fever, cough and difficulty in breathing will not be permitted to enter the center and requested to return once the health condition improves. Additionally, all customers and VFS Global employees are required to wear a face mask and gloves within the centre.

For any queries, customers may call the helpline on 80006848 or visit the website at  https://visa.vfsglobal.com/bhr/en/can
