The student visa or study permit is an official document that allows foreign students to complete their secondary and tertiary qualifications at any Canadian institution.

What is Student Visa?

A Canadian study permit, which serves as a student visa, allows you to complete your qualification at a Canadian institution of your choice for the duration of the qualification. You will be required to possess a study permit if your course is 6 months or longer, as well as remain enrolled at your designated institution.

It is important to note that study permits do not allow you to enter Canada and you will therefore need a visitor visa or ETA, which will be given to all successful study permit applicants. Your visa will expire 90 days after your study program has been completed but may be extended should you wish to continue your studies.

A study permit is valid for the duration of your qualification at your designated institution plus 90 days(to prepare to leave Canada or apply to extend your stay).
