Canada continues to attract a steady volume of students from India. While getting admission to Top Universities in Canada continues to require excellent academic score, the permission to study is validated by means of a Study Permit. If you wish to take academic, professional or vocational training at a university, college or other educational institution in Canada, you will need a study permit before you enter Canada. This study permit is issued to students when they arrive in Canada. However, to get there, a student must first apply for a Temporary Resident Visa which is provided by the Canadian High Commission and facilitated by the Visa Application Centers. VFS Global Services are the designated VACs for Canadian Visa.
What is the Visa Fee for Canada?
Study permit for Canada costs CAD$ 150, which is roughly equivalent to INR 7,400 (as shared on the CIC Website) as per current exchange rate. Since the exchange rate keeps changing, we would advise you to check the same at the time of your visa application.
