Everything You Need to Know About the Canada Student Visa
About Canada Study Permit
A study permit is a necessary document for international students to legally study in Canada. It is issued by Canadian immigration authorities and serves as authorization for foreign students to pursue their education in Canada. In addition to this, obtaining a study permit allows students to enrol in schools that have been designated by the government as authorized to host international students, known as Designated Learning Institutions (DLI).
What are the Eligibility Criteria?
A Canada Study Visa can be applied for if the following conditions are met:
- Proof of being fully vaccinated with an accepted vaccine such as AstraZeneca/COVISHIELD or Bharat Biotech Covaxin
- Acceptance into a Designated Learning Institute (DLI)
- Financial capability to pay for tuition, living expenses, and return transportation for yourself and any accompanying family members
- A clean background and no criminal record demonstrated through a police verification certificate
- A successful medical examination and certification of good health.
To apply for a Study Permit in Canada, you must have a valid passport. The Canadian High Commission requires that the passport's expiration date covers the entire duration of your stay in Canada. For example, if you plan to begin your studies in September 2022 and your course lasts for two years, your passport should be valid until at least September 2024.
An acceptance letter from the university or institution you plan to attend is required to apply for a Study Permit. The university must be recognized by the immigration department as a Designated Learning Institute (DLI). You will also need a CAQ (Certificate Acceptance du Québec) if you plan to study in Quebec.
