Study Permits - Jennifer Roggemann Law Office

Many students would love to have the remarkable experience of studying in other countries, but the process of getting them there can be a complex one. When coming to Canada for education, a study permit must be obtained, and it is important to make sure that all the I’s are dotted and T’s are crossed.

Applying for a Study Permit

Keep in mind that processing times may take a period of several months, so it is best to get started on the process as soon as you’ve made your decision to study in Canada. Application packages can be downloaded online or from the Canadian visa office in your country. In some cases, you may need a Temporary Resident Visa in addition to a Canada Study Permit. If both are necessary, they can be processed at the same time. These applications can be submitted to the visa office for the country where you live.

Fill out all forms carefully, neatly, and thoroughly in black ink, and be sure to sign and date them.  Be honest and forthright in your answers. Incomplete application packages will not be processed, but returned to the applicant.

Supporting Documentation

Study permits often require a significant amount of supporting documentation. Collect these documents and make sure all are filled out and meet the required specifications. Remember that any error in paperwork could result in the application being delayed or rejected.

Make sure the application package is complete before submission. There is a document checklist available to help you keep track of what you need. If you have questions, contact the Canadian visa office serving your country.

Application Fees

Verify the amount of the processing fee to be paid for your application, and make payment through your local visa office. Remember that this fee is non-refundable, even if your application is rejected. When you submit your application, retain the receipt for the processing fee.

Additional Documentation May Be Needed

In some cases, the immigration officer reviewing your application may request additional documentation such as:

–        Medical information or examination. This is not uncommon, and you will receive instructions if a medical examination is required. Keep in mind that this may increase the processing time for your application by up to 90 days.

–        Security Information. You may be required to provide police certificates clearing you for travel to another country.
