VFS Global has reopened its Canada Visa Application Centre in Dubai with strict health and safety guidelines in place; under the directives received from the Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC). The centre is providing limited visa services from Sunday to Thursday between 1000 to 1800 hrs.
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, VFS Global has established standardised 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 centre and requested to return once the health condition improves. Additionally, all customers and VFS Global employees are required to wear a face mask within the centre.
