Even while the Citizenship & Immigration Canada (CIC) starts to put into operation their biometrics system for overseas people, who could be keen to pocket Canadian Visas, according to the available information, an inside report has urged Ottawa to come-up with a perfect appeals system.
Reportedly, the proposed system is to be for those visa candidates whose applications fail to make the cut successfully--the reason of which could be the biometrics system which may suggest that their fingerprints don't match with the ones available on the biometrics system.
Starting 2013--and in tune with the visa application procedure--certain people from abroad, filing applications for the Canadian Permits, will not only be required to give their fingerprints but also their photographs even as the former will be compared with what is already there in the bank. After the candidates having visas turn-up in the Maple Country, the involved immigration officers will employ the existing data to check and cross-check if their fingerprints aren't different.
When it comes to the digital scanning of the fingerprints, none of the biometrics system is fool-proof. Two completely dissimilar fingers can be matched, by error, even as the measurements from the same finger may be abandoned. In case a disagreement arises on the decision involving entrance a thorough and documented procedure is recommended. The report continues that in the eventuality of the disagreements involving the precision of the fingerprints, the CIC should set-up and document a method, apart from offering the relevant facts to the applicants on the complaint measures and solutions.
Ottawa believes that the biometric verification will remarkably cut-down on the cases of fraud even as it boosts the national border security. In this connection, and according to the CIC, it also implies that the candidates will be at an advantage in view of the decreased danger that their unique individuality would be illegally used by somebody to enter the country. It added that applying biometrics will ensure that the nation is placed on a common platform with the US and Britain-the countries which already employ the biometrics for border security and immigration objects.
