Canada's embassy in Mexico has halted face-to-face meetings with hopeful visa and immigration applicants over swine-flu fears. Embassy staff told Sun Media that all appointments for interviews have been postponed and document drop-boxes have been set up at visa offices to deal with the usually large numbers of people seeking services. Only emergency services for Canadians are being offered. Similar measures are being used by other embassies, including the U.S. and Great Britain.
