STEP 3: Submit Your Canada Student Visa Application
Students can then fill out and submit a Study Permit application online or using a paper-based process. The online process can be completed at the IRCC website. Applications submitted via the paper-based process must be submitted to a Visa Application Center (VAC) in their country.
STEP 4: Wait for a Decision
After that, you wait for the Canadian student visa approval. Approving a typical Canadian study visa takes 90 days (13 weeks), depending on which country you are applying from.
STEP 5: Move to Canada
If your study permit application is approved, you can fly to Canada. You will receive your Canadian study permit at your port of entry into the country.
