FAQs

1. Do I need a visa?
Residents of India, Nepal, and Bhutan require a visa to enter Canada.
United States of America permanent residents [Green Card holders] who are in possession of their status document or who can provide other evidence of permanent residence do not require a visa to visit Canada.
If you are a citizen of another country, click here to see if you require a visitor visa to enter Canada.
Since June 11, 2003, international seafarers of Indian, Nepali, or Bhutanese origin travelling to Canada to join ships as crew members require a temporary resident visa in a valid passport as well as a seafarer's identity document.

2.  What types of visas are there?
A single entry visa allows you to enter Canada only once. If you have a valid USA visa and are visiting the USA on your trip to Canada, the visa may also be used for repeated entries into Canada from the USA within the time allowed for your stay in Canada.
A multiple entry visa allows you to enter Canada from any country as often as you wish during the validity of the visa. If you have never travelled to Canada before, or if you are not certain that you will meet the requirements for issuance of a visa, you may wish to apply only for a single entry visa.
A transit visa is required when a traveller will be in Canada for 48 hours or less en route to another country. There is no fee for a transit visa, which can be issued as either a single or multiple entry. The applicant must demonstrate to the visa officer that they have an onward ticket and a visa, if required, for their ultimate destination. At the Port of Entry, the immigration office will determine if the traveller is granted admission to Canada. If the traveller is not granted entry, he or she will be sent back to the point of origin.
The visa validity is determined by a visa officer. Single-entry visas are normally valid for six months, and multiple-entry visas may be valid for longer periods. The validity date is the day by which you must enter, not leave, Canada. The officer at the Port of Entry will determine the length of stay allowed.
We cannot issue visitor visas with a validity that exceeds the passport validity. So if your passport will expire soon, you may want to renew it before you apply for your Canadian visa.
Please note that the decision on the validity of the visa is made by the Visa Officer. On occasion, the Visa Officer may issue a single entry visa when a multiple entry visa has been requested. As in the case of refused applications, there are no refunds in this type of case, as the fees charged are for the processing of the application and are not based on the outcome of the application.

Please note that processing times vary from case to case. Some cases will take longer than the times indicated above.
Note: VFS is responsible only for accepting applications and providing advice and guidance where necessary. All visa applications will continue to be assessed by visa officers at the Canadian High Commission in New Delhi or at the Canadian Consulate General in Chandigarh.


6.  What are the basic requirements for a visitor visa?
All applicants wishing to visit Canada must satisfy an officer that they will leave Canada by the end of the period authorized for the stay, that they will not contravene the conditions of admission (for example, that they will not study or work without prior authorization) and that they do not belong in a category of persons inadmissible to Canada under the Immigration and Refugee Protection Act.
In reaching a decision, an officer considers several factors, which may include:
the applicant's travel and identity documents;
the reason for travel to Canada and the applicant's contacts there;
the applicant's financial means for the trip;
the applicant's ties to his or her country of residence, including immigration status, employment and family ties;
whether the applicant would be likely to leave Canada at the end of the authorized stay.

If you are inviting a friend or relative to visit, please link to the checklist above which indicates what documents are required as part of an application.
Please remember that although you may provide documentation in support of an application of a friend or relative, the decision of the visa officer is ultimately based on the applicant's circumstances, and not on any personal or financial guarantees that you or others may be prepared to offer on that person's behalf.


9.  I live in Canada. How do I invite an Indian business person to visit?
Click here for more information.
If you are inviting a business contact to visit, please use the link to the checklist above which indicates what documents are required as part of an application.
Business between Canada and India grows every year, and with it the number of applications for visas made by Indian businesspeople. Unfortunately, this increase in applications includes not only bona fide visitors who have legitimate business reasons for making temporary visits, but also applicants who submit fraudulent or misleading documents. As a result, our office may check with Canadian invitors to ensure that an invitation that has been extended is genuine. The verification process may take time. It is intended, however, to protect the reputation and business interests of Canadian companies.
Before contacting the High Commission about the case of a business person that you have invited, please remember that it is the Visa Section, not the Commercial Section, that is charged with the responsibility of issuing visas and that has the final say. Also note that the Visa Section cannot provide information about a visa application without the written consent of the applicant.


10.  My application was refused. What can I do about it?
Written reasons for the refusal are given to unsuccessful visa applicants. Once you are in possession of the written reasons, there are limited avenues for appeal. There is no formal appeal mechanism for visa refusals of visitor applicants.
If your circumstances have changed appreciably and you believe that it would result in a different decision, you may wish to reapply. If, however, there is no change in your situation, then it is unlikely that your application would result in the issuance of a visa.
Click here for more information on what to do if an application is refused.


11.  What can I do to support the application of my friend, relative, or business contact who was refused? Can I find out what the reasons were?
Please remember that although you may provide documentation in support of an application of a friend, relative, or business contact, the decision of the visa officer is ultimately based on the applicant's circumstances, and not on any personal or financial guarantees that you or others may be prepared to offer on that person's behalf. As a federal government department, we are bound by the Privacy Act not to discuss the details of any case with anyone except the applicant and certain authorized persons. Before we can release information to you the applicant must provide us with specific written permission to do so.

In most cases, if you intend to take up temporary employment in Canada, you must first apply for and obtain a work permit before seeking entry to Canada. This can only be done once you have been offered a job in Canada and your prospective employer has demonstrated to a Human Resources Development Centre (HRDC) in the city where the job is located, that the employment opportunities of Canadian citizens and residents would not be adversely affected.
Once your job offer confirmation has been issued by HRDC, you will then need to apply for a Work Permit from the visa office.

8.  I need information about performing in Canada.
This information will be of interest to Indian entertainers intending to perform in Canada, either live or on screen, for Canadian or Indian audience consumption. A visitor visa is required in all cases. Depending on the activity-- not on the intended audience -- some performers require additional work permits and others require work permits as well as confirmations of employment from Human Resources Development Canada (HRDC).
Please note that group applications require advance planning, as these types of cases are processed within a minimum of ten working days.
The confirmation of employment is a type of certification from HRDC that there is no Canadian or permanent resident who could perform the same duties that the temporary foreign worker will perform.
HRDC's primary consideration is to ensure that entertainers, and support crew in the entertainment industry who are Canadian citizens or permanent residents have sufficient opportunity to apply for a vacant position, and that wages and working conditions for temporary foreign workers are acceptable and equivalent to union standards.

1.  Do I need a study permit to study at a Canadian educational institution?
Click here for more information.
Canadian colleges, universities, technical institutes and other educational institutions encourage applications from qualified international students. If you are going to study in Canada for more than six (6) months, you need a study permit. Applicants going to study in any field in Canada for six (6) months or less do not require a Study Permit and can be processed as visitors. However, this applies only if the full course is six months or less. You cannot go to Canada for the first six months without a study permit and then obtain the permit.
If you intend to study in the province of Quebec, you also need a Certificate of Acceptance (CAQ) from the Quebec government. You can obtain more information here.

Note: VFS is responsible only for accepting applications and providing advice and guidance where necessary. All visa applications will continue to be assessed by visa officers at the Canadian High Commission in New Delhi or at the Canadian Consulate General in Chandigarh.


5.  What are the basic requirements for a Study Permit?
All applicants wishing to study in Canada must satisfy an officer that:
they will leave Canada by the end of the period authorized for their stay,
that they will not contravene the conditions of admission (for example, that they will not work without prior authorization or waiver),
that they have sufficient funds for their tuition fees, to maintain themselves and any accompanying family members, and to transport themselves to and from Canada, without working in Canada, and
that they do not belong in a category of persons inadmissible to Canada under the Immigration and Refugee Protection Act.

6.  What kind of funds do I need to show?
You will need to satisfy a visa officer that you have sufficient funds available for your studies, including tuition, living costs and transportation, without working. Please see Question 7 for documents you should submit and Question 10 for the amount of funds required.
It is highly recommended that you arrange the funds that you will be using to support your studies according to the guidelines below.
If you are funding your studies in whole or in part through your savings, your immediate family’s savings or a sponsor’s savings, it is in your interest to:
provide verifiable documentary evidence of immediately available funds in a credible financial institution that have been available for your studies for at least 6 months prior to the date of your application;
demonstrate that any loan is secured, verifiable and from a credible financial institution;
provide your, your parents’ or your sponsor’s banking records for the 24 months prior to your application;
provide documentary proof that explains any large deposits in your, your parents’ or your sponsor’s savings; and
provide documentary proof that you, your family or your sponsor has a stable income that explains the savings or loan available for your studies.
 
If you do not follow these guidelines, your study permit application may be rejected without interview on that grounds that you have not satisfied an officer that you have sufficient funds.
The officer deciding each case determines whether banking documents are acceptable. Most scheduled Indian banks and international banks operating in India are likely to be considered credible.
Please note that original documents are not accepted; if required , we will advise accordingly.


7.  What documents should I provide to obtain a Study Permit?
Click here.


8.  Do I need to take an IELTS test?
It is strongly recommended that you take an IELTS test if you intend to study in English. You will need to satisfy a visa officer that you will observe the conditions of your admission to Canada and will depart Canada at the end of the period authorized for your stay. A proven and verifiable ability to communicate in the language of your studies will assist the officer in making that determination.


9.  When should I apply?
It is very strongly recommended that you apply at least two months before the start of your studies. If you do not, you may miss the registration date specified on your letter of acceptance. A study permit will not be issued to you if you do not have a valid letter of acceptance when a final decision is made on your application.
You should apply as early as possible once you receive your acceptance letter. Please note that medical examinations are usually required for students from India and Nepal. This adds a minimum of two weeks to the processing of your application.
Please note that if you do not submit your application properly, or do not submit the correct documents, the processing time will be longer. Applicants who do not provide the required documents may be refused without an interview.

10.  How much money will I need during my studies in Canada?
If you will not receive funding from a Canadian educational institution or a governmental organization, you will be required to provide evidence that you or your family can readily afford the cost of an education in Canada on an ongoing basis. You must demonstrate that you will have enough money during your stay in Canada to pay for tuition fees, books, living expenses for yourself and any accompanying dependents, and return transportation for both yourself and your dependents.
According to Citizenship and Immigration Canada guidelines, you will require approximately $10 000 Canadian per year, not including tuition fees, to cover your living expenses. If your dependants are planning to accompany or join you, you will require an additional $4 000 for the first dependant, and $3 000 for each subsequent dependant, in addition to return airfare.

11.  Can my spouse and child come with me to Canada, or visit me at a later date?
If you proceed to Canada alone, it is possible that your dependants will not be able to join you there. If you wish your spouse and / or child to accompany you to Canada or to join you at a later date, you must provide proof that you will be able to support them. Please see the response to Question 10 above.
Since funding provided by Canadian institutions or governmental organizations is normally sufficient for one person only, you will likely be required to provide proof of additional funding and/ or savings. Your dependants will also be required to demonstrate to a visa officer that they have sufficient ties to India to ensure their departure from Canada.

12.  Can I work while I am in school?
You are allowed to work on campus if you are pursuing full time studies and are in possession of a valid Study Permit. Otherwise, you will need permission from an immigration office to work while studying in Canada. Click here for more information on working during and after your studies.

13.  If I have a study permit, can I stay permanently in Canada?
Study Permits are issued for the sole, temporary purpose of authorizing your studies in Canada. If you are applying for a study permit primarily in order to get into Canada to obtain permanent residence, to work, or for any other purpose other than studying, it is very likely that your application will be refused.
If you have already arrived in Canada and do not attend an academic institution, removal procedures will be initiated against you.

14.  Do I need someone to help me prepare my application?
You may prepare and submit your application yourself, or by an individual who provides such services for free (family members, friends, non-governmental and religious organizations, etc.), or you may decide to hire an authorized representative to do so. An authorized representative must be either: immigration consultants who are members of the Canadian Society of Immigration Consultants; lawyers who are members of a Canadian law society; or notaries who are members of the Chambre des notaires du Québec. All applications are treated equally, regardless of by whom they are submitted.
You, as the applicant, are responsible for all information submitted. Please be sure to review all the information on your application form and ensure that all questions are answered truthfully before signing and dating the forms.
Please note that all persons who assist in the preparation of study permit applications must be identified in Question One of the Study Permit Questionnaire. Failure to answer this question honestly may contribute to a negative decision on your application. If you are authorizing the release of your file information to an authorized representative, the person must be identified on form IMM 5476B.
If you or someone acting on your behalf directly or indirectly misrepresents facts relating to your application for a visa:
your application will be refused;
the circumstances of your refusal will be entered into Canada's global immigration database; and
you could become inadmissible to Canada for 2 years under section 40(2) of the Immigration and Refugee Protection Act.

15. If my application is refused, will the High Commission help me to get back money paid to the school in Canada?
No. The Visa Section is not able to assist with the refund of school fees.

16. My application was refused. What can I do about it?
Written reasons for the refusal are given to unsuccessful Study Permit applicants. Once you are in possession of the written reasons, there are limited avenues for appeal. There is no formal appeal mechanism for refused Study Permit applications.
The Visa Section is not able to assist with the refund of school fees.
If your circumstances have changed appreciably and you believe that it would result in a different decision, you may wish to reapply. If, however, there is no change in your situation, then it is unlikely that your application would result in the issuance of a Study Permit.
