The following is general information only. Visa regulations are determined by a department of the Canadian government called Immigration Canada and are subject to change. Do not rely only on what is stated here. Please verify the latest visa information with your nearest Canadian Embassy or Consulate.
If you wish to study in Canada for up to 6 months, you do not need a Student Visa. However, like many visitors, you may need a Visitor's Visa depending on the country from which you hold a passport. Please check the latest requirements with the Canadian Embassy or Consulate in your country.
If you plan to study in Canada for longer than 6 months, you must obtain a Study Permit, available through your local Canadian Embassy.
Please note that you may apply for a Study Permit even if you are going to study for 6 months or less, but are thinking of possibly extending your studies to more than 6 months. In this case, you should apply for a Study Permit in your home country. Students can extend their Study Permit from within Canada, but they cannot get a Study Permit from within Canada.
We strongly encourage you to obtain health insurance when traveling abroad. Health care is quite expensive in Canada and if you are not a Canadian resident, you are responsible for all your health care expenses. We can assist you in purchasing reasonably priced insurance from various insurance providers for your stay in Canada. If you require this service, please indicate the details on your enrolment form.
We know that finding your way around a new city can be confusing.

You will need to provide us with your flight information at least 10 days prior to your arrival.
When your stay in Canada is over, we can also provide transportation to the airport. At Diplomat, we try to make traveling as easy as possible.
