IRCC Updates Study Permit Application Guidelines for Foreign Nationals

Immigration, Refugees, and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) has recently issued updated instructions concerning study permits, effective March 12, 2024. These revisions specifically focus on the application process for foreign nationals. The updated guidelines provide detailed procedures for individuals who obtained study permit approval abroad but faced difficulties in acquiring the permit upon arrival in Canada. It's emphasized that reaching out to the IRCC Client Support Centre is crucial for assistance in obtaining study permits within Canada. This includes situations where study permit applications were approved abroad but weren't received at the port of entry, possibly due to issues like failing to present a letter of introduction. The primary objective of these updates is to provide clarity and support for foreign nationals navigating the process of obtaining study permits while already in Canada.
