Canadian Student Visa Requirement
To make your visa application easier make sure you understand the process.
In Canada a student visa is often called a 'study permit'.
You must make sure you have the correct study permit for your international studies before you leave for Canada.
The Canadian immigration authority is called Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC).
Study permit conditions can change quickly, so you will need to make sure you have the latest advice. The best place to find this advice is the IRCC website .
Your IDP counsellor will direct you to the relevant IRCC information and will help you find an authorised immigration representative if you need one.
You may need to have your documents translated and couriered. Our team at IDP can help you through this so you have less paperwork to keep track of yourself!
Arranging study permits or visas can seem daunting, but with the right support and direction, it will be much less daunting.
We provide visa support to students for Canada and it’s completely free of charge.
Any messaging around visa support should articulate that we advise all students they must visit the Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) and other relevant websites to ensure they have latest information on visa requirements.
We do not provide immigration and permanent residency advice.
