What are the documents needed for a Canadian Study visa?

After you get your college confirmation letter, you ought to apply for a student visa. To apply for the September admission, you should begin the visa system around June. The papers expected to apply for a Canada Student Visa are recorded underneath.

1. Possess a valid passport

To apply for a Study Permit, you should have a substantial visa. As indicated by the Canadian High Commission, you should have a visa that is substantial for the span of your expected stay in Canada. For instance, to make a trip to Canada for a two-year degree in September 2019, your identification should be legitimate until September 2021.

2. Affirmation from a Designated Learning Institution

The confirmation letter from the college/foundation you need to go to is required. The Immigration Department perceives a Designated Learning Institute as a college. (For your benefit, I've incorporated a rundown.) If you're applying for Quebec, you'll likewise require a CAQ, which you'll be educated about.

3. Evidence of Funds

You will be required to present proof of money when applying for your Study Permit. According to current requirements, you must demonstrate that you will be able to pay our tuition costs as well as cover living expenses. To study in Canada, a student needs at least CAD 10,000 for every year they stay. Students must also demonstrate that they have the cash to make a reasonable return in addition to the aforementioned two requirements.

Note: You must present proof of payment of fees as well as the stipulated cost of living of CAD 10,000 while filling out the application form. If you want to apply for Quebec, you'll need at least CAD 11,000 for each year you want to remain.

4. Photographs the size of a passport

If you are submitting your application by mail, you will need two passport-sized pictures that meet the requirements. You must get a digital copy of the image for online application, which should not exceed 4MB. Other basic requirements include a neutral face expression, a simple background, and no headgear (unless for religious purposes). 

Note:

  1. Size of the image must not be less than 35 mm * 45 mm.
  2. The image must be recent (not older).

5. Medical Examination for Immigration (IME)

Students from India must pass a mandatory Immigration Medical Examination administered by physicians appointed by Canadian Immigration. Students should schedule an appointment with one of the following physicians for a medical examination at least one week before they begin their Visa application. A doctor has ample time to verify and upload all the necessary documentation during this period. Making an appointment with the nearest facility/ practitioner on the list of empanelled physicians is usually advisable in advance.

The panel physician will conduct a thorough medical examination and may advise you to get chest x-rays and laboratory tests. After your check-up is completed, the doctor will send the results to CIC.

6. The English Language Proficiency Exam 

We strongly urge you to take the English Language Proficiency Test and acquire your score before commencing the Visa Application Process, even if it is not needed at the time of application. In order to confirm your entrance to the Canadian university, you would have submitted your score for English proficiency. The TOEFL, IELTS, and other comparable examinations are all accepted.

7. Statement of Purpose

You must submit an essay stating why you are visiting Canada and why you have chosen the specific university when applying for a Canadian Study Permit. You will be asked to submit this as an optional document on the checklist, but we strongly suggest you to do so.

8. Credit Card

You'll need a credit card to pay the application fee if you're submitting an application online. The visa application fee in Canada is CAD 160. Please bear in mind that the system only accepts credit cards and not debit cards. It is not  necessarily required that it has to be your credit card. If you have your parents' permission, you can also use their credit cards.

Aside from the aforementioned, if you're applying online, you'll need a digital scanner. You'll need legitimate copies of all of the above-mentioned documents if you're applying by mail. It's critical to understand that while applying online, you'll need to download a few papers, fill them out, print them, sign them, and then submit them. As a result, the availability of the scanner must be arranged. You may also use the system to submit a high-resolution digital image. In comparison to a camera, a scanner is preferred.

During the personal interview, the interviewer may request further documents. These documents might represent proof of academic or financial standing.

  1. Test results, such as TOEFL, SAT, GRE, or GMAT scores
  2. Transcripts, diplomas, degrees, or certificates from institutions or universities you've attended
  3. Your desire to depart Canada after completing your education.
  4. What are your plans for covering all of your educational, living, and travel costs?
