Study permit renewal conditions
In order to renew the study permit, the following conditions must be met:
* The renewal application was made before the expiry of the current study permit;
* All conditions imposed on entry into Canada are complied with;
* The foreign national is in good standing at the educational institution; and
* The foreign national is in compliance with the eligibility criteria for a study permit.
Due to the processing renewal time, one is allowed to continue studying in Canada with an expired study permit if the following conditions are met:
* The renewal application was made before the expiry of the current study permit;
* The foreign national has remained in Canada since the expiry of the study permit; and
* The foreign national continues to comply with the conditions, other than the expiry date, set out in the expired study permit.
In other words, there is an implied status and right to study under the same condition as long as one remains in Canada. The original study permit continues to be valid until a decision is made and one is notified.
Study permit vs visa
A temporary resident visa is a document issued by a visa office abroad that is placed in a person’s passport to show that he or she has met the requirements for admission to Canada as a temporary resident (a visitor, student or worker).
A study permit is a document issued by Citizenship and Immigration Canada (CIC) that authorises a foreign national to study at an educational institution in Canada for the duration of the programme of study.
The visa and study permit are two separate documents: the first allows you to enter Canada, while the latter allows you to remain in Canada to study (and work part-time during studies and full-time during the breaks).
