Canada Study Permits ( Student Visas )
Study Permits (student visas) are not required for short-term English language courses in Canada. A temporary resident (visitor) can study in Canada without a Study Permit if the course lasts six months or less.
People from some countries are still be required to have Visitor Visas. Others do not. You can find which countries are exempt from Canadian visa requirements here.
Applying for a Canada Study Permit ( Student Visa )
First, you need a Letter of Acceptance from the school. We will send a Letter of Acceptance to you after we receive your application form and tuition fees. Keep this letter to apply for your Study Permit at the visa office.
Medical Exams for Study Permits
People who apply for programs of 24 weeks or longer are usually asked to complete medical examinations. It sometimes takes up to two or three months for the Canadian government to process a medical examination report before approving a Study Permit. If you cannot wait that long it is best to apply for a 16-week program. The Study Permit can be extended after you come to Canada. We can help you extend your Study Permit .
Special Conditions for Study Permits
Canadian Embassies in some countries, such as Colombia, require students to enroll in full-time courses before they can apply for Study Permits. Students from some other countries often encounter various complications and delays when applying for Study Permits. Some of these countries are China, Russia, Turkey, Egypt, and Macao. If you are from one of these countries, you should take some time to become an expert on Canadian visas before you apply. You must be able to convince the authorities that you genuinely want to come to Canada to study English, and that you will return to your home country when your studies have been completed. You must also submit all of the correct documents.
