Canadian Student Visa

    Do you know that Canada bags third place amongst all the countries of the world in terms of overall education? This is why no doubt every year thousands of students apply in Canadian Universities. To get to study in Canada you require two main things: a letter of acceptance from a DLI (Designated Learning Institution) and a study permit.

    As you will get the study permit, you will also get a TRV (Temporary Resident Visa). This visa allows you to enter into Canada while the study permit allows you to study in Canada. Here are some advantages of studying in Canada along with world-class education:

    • Canadian universities have a lower tuition fee as compared to American universities
    • You can work while studying in Canada
    • You can get a maximum three-years work permit after you complete your studies which allow you to stay in Canada for a job. 
    • The experience you gain while studying in Canada can be a pathway to get Permanent Residence under Canadian Experience Class
    Canadian Student Visa Processing Time

    The Canadian Student Visa Processing time depends on the type of study program or course you have applied for and the country from where you are applying. In general, it can take 90 days to get your application processed for a Canadian student visa. However, for countries like India, Pakistan, Philippines etc. there is a Student Direct Stream (SDS) where students from these countries can get their study permits in just 20 calendar days.
