  2. Tuition receipt, also known as an evidence of one year’s worth of fees paid, and a letter of acceptance from a college in Canada that is a designated learning institution.

  3. A bank statement for CAD $10,000 produced by the Canadian Bank where the GIC Account is opened serves as the GIC (Guaranteed Investment Cover) receipt. However, if you are applying to a college in Quebec, your GIC should be worth CAD 11,000 instead.

Before applying for a student visa, the Canadian government has long insisted that international students undergo an immigration medical examination from physicians with whom they have established working relationships. Chest X-rays and laboratory tests will be performed by the doctor, who will then email the results immediately to Citizenship and Immigration Canada (CIC) and provide the student visa applicant with an e-Tracking document that will be added to the file for their application for a student visa to Canada. The medical report will be delivered directly to CIC by Empanelled doctors and is completely confidential.

You would also need a credit card to pay the application cost if you were submitting your application online. The application fee for a student visa to Canada is $150 and the biometric fee is $85 (payable only once per ten years).

Please keep in mind that the system does not take debit cards; it only accepts credit cards, such as Visa and Mastercard. Additionally, it is not required to be your credit card. If you have the express consent to do so, you may use the credit cards of your parents, friends, or any other relatives.

The applicant for a student visa must provide the following details to CIC in order to submit his application:-

  1. Visa Type                                              – Master / Visa card
  2. Card Holder Name                             –

Please be aware that because the student is paying fees using a Visa or Master Card and the transaction is international, no OTP Code will be generated by the card issuers. The candidate will learn when the money is taken out of the account of the cardholder.

In addition to the aforementioned, you’d need access to a digital scanner if you were applying online. However, you must have true copies of all the aforementioned documents if you are applying offline. It is crucial to remember that you will need to download a few documents, complete them, print them, sign them, and then upload them in order to submit your online application. Therefore, it is necessary to plan for the scanner’s accessibility. You can also upload a high-quality digital image using the system. However, we suggest a scanner over a camera.
