The Canadian High Commission in India assured that it was working hard to reduce the waiting time for Canadian study permits last week.
In September, Indian students enrolled in Canadian colleges will begin their academic session. However, they are facing delays due to student visas. The High Commission of India has urged the authorities to speed up the process of visa applications.
The Canadian High Commission in India assured that it was working hard to reduce the waiting time for Canadian study permits last week. Throughout the year, the authorities review Canadian student visa applications for the September 2022 intake.
A contingency plan is being put by Canada into action as students have already deposited their tuition fees. This will help the students who have not yet received their study permits. The relevant ministry has been notified of the issue.
A few Canadian Universities have decided to provide remote study options for those students who are unable to reach the country at the start of the academic year. Communicating with the universities helps in gaining good guidance to find the best options.
Students can directly talk to the institutions to know if their courses offer remote options. Moreover, They can also discuss other possible options if there are no remote study facilities. Also, students who wish to defer their admission to a later academic session can communicate with the universities.
Distressed students are directed to send requests for Information and speedy processing through IRCC web form. This will help notify them that the forms for study permits have been submitted and have exceeded the time for the Student Direct Stream (SDS) scheme.
The IRCC website has approved India as a country and students must get a study permit within 20 days if they apply through the SDS route. However, students will have to pay their first-year tuition fees to receive visas faster in this route.
