This program is for international students who are currently studying in Canada and whose study permit is about to expire, to apply for an extension to continue their studies in Canada. The extension will be granted based on the approval of the student's study plan and the compliance with the conditions of the initial study permit.
Need more time for your Canadian studies?
We recommend students to start applying for an extension early, because:
Applications must be submitted more than 30 days before the Study Permit expires, and
It may take up to 4 months for the Canadian government to approve the extension
Make sure your passport does not also expire, as you cannot extend your permit beyond the passport expiry date.
If the Study Permit expires while waiting for an extension, we recommend you stay in Canada as you are allowed to remain under the same conditions until a decision is made. However, if you travel outside of Canada when your Study Permit expires, then you will not be allowed to re-enter Canada until you have the Study Permit extension.
How It Works
- 1Create An Account
Do an eligibility check, or pick a visa, or just sign up directly to create an account. Then you can see all the documents needed, questions you must answer, and fee payments for our services and to the government. If you have any questions, it is easy to contact our sales team or to schedule a call.
- 2Eligibility Confirmation Before Payment
First you will answer a few questions to ensure you are eligible for the visa. Only if you are eligible will the payment unlock. Making payment assigns an immigration lawyer or regulated consultant to your application. We are transparent in our process and pricing, and clearly list all the fees and processing times for your visa. Read our Transparency Pledge. We use Stripe for credit or debit card payment processing, which is secure and encrypted.
- 3Complete Your Application Online
You can complete as many of the application tasks you wish before payment. Take your time. Some visas require a lot of information, which requires answering questionnaires and uploading of documents. Our system ensures everything necessary is gathered depending on your situation - preventing errors and omissions - and saving you time.
- 4Visa Preparation and Submission
Once all the tasks are completed, our experts will review your answers and start preparing your application so that the best case is best presented. Government fees are also due once the application is completed and we can correctly calculate the government fees due. After a final review by you, and by our experts, your application will be submitted! You will have peace of mind that only comes with an accurate application.
- 5Approval and Renewals
We notify you when your visa is approved! If there are any questions or rejections from the government, we will answer them and resubmit without any further fees from us. We securely store your immigration documents for 7 years and provide alerts well before any expiry dates. Renewing or taking the next step toward citizenship is easy when all your immigration history is in one place.
