From 19 October 2020, we will gradually resume biometrics collection services at the existing biometrics collection locations.

The resumption of biometrics collection services through the Australian Visa Application Centres (AVACs) and Australian Biometrics Collection Centres (ABCCs) will be dependent on in-country COVID-19 restrictions.

In addition, collection centres will offer enquiry and assisted online lodgement services.

You can use your existing Requirement to provide personal identifiers (biometrics) letter to book and attend an appointment. If you have applied for your visa online, a copy of this letter is available in your ImmiAccount.

You must contact your local AVAC or ABCC to arrange an appointment.You can check our website for updated information on AVACs and ABCCs including contact information and opening times in your country. See: Offices outside Australia

We are aware that you may not be able to provide biometrics in certain locations due to in-country COVID-19 restrictions. You do not need to contact us if:

the collection centre in your area being temporarily closed, or
lock-downs in your area that prevent you from travelling to a collection centre

This is great news! They will probably open in dribs and drabs.

Please let us know when your local centre has opened here!
