Study Permit introduction

One of the most important steps before starting a new overseas program is to obtain a study permit. A study permit allows a safe entry to the country of your choice and secures your academic future without any issues. To apply for a study permit, a student must have the acceptance letter from the chosen educational institution in Canada/Australia/USA or any other country as applied and must be able to provide proof that:

  • The student has sufficient funds to cover tuition fees, living expenses, transportation costs, and other costs while living in the foreign country. The document of proof might include bank statements, proof of scholarship, parental bank statements, etc.
  • An identity proof that states that he or she is a law-abiding citizen and does not have a criminal record
  • Medical records are needed
  • An assurance that the student will leave the country once they have completed their study abroad program or any chosen field of studies

It is crucial to apply for a study permit as much in advance as possible. Any student caught without a study permit will not be allowed to enter the country.
