How to Extend your Canada Study Permit

For all those international students who are currently studying in Canada with their study permit date validity nearing the expiration date, they can have their visa extended and still enjoy the perks of studying in Canada.

Apply for a Study Permit Extension

Before applying for a permit extension, it is essential to ensure that your passport is still valid, as well as your study permit . The extension application is filed online as well as offline, depending on your circumstances.

Furthermore, if you want to extend your Canadian study permit and want to travel outside of Canada too, then you can re-enter Canada after travel if your study permit is still valid or the permit was extended during your travel.

Additionally, if the permit extension is still under processing on your return, then you may re-enter Canada using a Visitor Visa or an Electronic Travel Authorization (eTA). Though, you would not be allowed to pursue your study till you receive your permit extension.
