Biometrics will be collected using a quick, discreet and non-intrusive process that captures a facial image with a digital camera and a 10-digit fingerprint scan with a digital finger scanner.
Applicants who have applied for their visas will be sent a Biometric requirement letter informing them that they need to attend the Australian Biometric Collection Centre in person to provide their biometrics.
Please note the following:
If you refuse to submit your biometric data, your visa application cannot be processed and you will be referred to the Australian Embassy in Cairo.
The presence of a parent or guardian is required for applicants less than 16 years of age at the time of biometric collection.
Important note: Originals of international passport (or travel document) at time of biometrics collection;
|Biometric requirement letter from the Department of Home Affairs|
|Applicant in person|
