Apply for a study permit through the Student Direct Stream

You must apply online to get faster processing for your study permit. There’s no paper application for the Student Direct Stream. Make sure you include all the required documents with your application.

Before you apply online, make sure you have the following:

  • instruction guide to fill out your forms
  • scanner or camera to create electronic copies of your documents
  • valid credit or debit card to make a payment

Pay your biometric fee

In most cases, you need to give your biometrics. You should pay the biometric fee when you submit your application online. If you don’t pay this fee, we may not be able to process your application faster.

If you need help with providing your biometrics or sending us your passport, you can visit the nearest visa application centre.

How to submit your language test results when you apply

We’re experiencing a system error, and some of the language tests do not appear as an option for applicants to select. This is affecting applicants who are applying with language test results for 1 of the new tests that were approved for the Student Direct Stream (SDS) as of August 10.

To make sure your application is processed as an SDS application, if you have a valid test result for 1 of the new language tests, follow the instructions below when you apply.

  • When asked if you’ve taken a language test in the past 2 years, select Yes – IELTS.
  • When asked if your test results were 6.0 or higher, select Yes.
  • When you upload your supporting documents, upload your valid test results in the field labelled Proof of IELTS results.
