Study Permit Extension
If an international student is in Canada with a study permit about to expire, there are options to extend their stay:
- They could extend their study permit if they have been accepted to study at any Designated Learning Institution (DLI).
- They could change their expiring study permit and get a visitor one until they enroll in another DLI (This applies only if the foreign student is from a visa-exempt country).
- If their study permit expired less than three months ago, the international student can restore their status and stay in Canada with legal status.
It is always best to plan ahead of time and submit a temporary residence application to remain in Canada before it is too late. The emergence of Covid-19 (Coronavirus), has impacted Canadian Government’s periods to process applications.
Hiring a Certified Consultation firm will ensure that an application meets the Canadian immigration authorities’ requirements, which dramatically increases the chances of a favourable outcome.
