Great news for our international students and interns! From now on, temporary residents (students and temporary foreign workers) currently residing in Canada with valid status can submit their application for a new temporary resident visa to Ottawa. The visitors had to submit their application in US formerly. This solves the problem of all those people:
- students on visitors permits who previously would have to go to the States to get a study permit,
- students who wants to apply for a temporary work permit to get into a Study and Work Program after they come to Vancouver,
- who couldn’t upgrade to an internship program if they didn’t have an American visa.
Contact your counselor if you need any assistance about the visa procedures.
