The rejection rate of Canada study visas has reduced after two years. The visa rejection rate was around 35% in 2019 during the initial stages of the COVID-19 pandemic. Later, it went down to 60% in 2022.
There was a waiting period of 8 to 10 months in some cases of Canada student visas and even higher for a few applicants. The recent reports show that there is a gradual increase in approval for the government of Canada.
According to the reports, the applicants with a three years gap are securing approvals. The consultants surmise that the improvement is a result of already rejected applicants. After rejection from the Canadian embassy, students started opting for alternate countries. The United Kingdom, the United States, and Australia were the immediate choices.
The British High Commission's recent reports revealed that the UK issued 1,17,965 study visas in a year. On the other hand, the US student visa acceptance rate was 95%. Under such circumstances, Canada fastened the study visa approvals.
One of the consultants shared that, before, only four out of ten applicants got visas. However, now it has improved to 5-6 approval out of 10 applications.
Canada is the top destination for higher studies abroad. International students prefer Canada for its quality education, friendly visa, and immigration rules. So, obtaining a Canada student visa remains difficult due to the high demand for admissions.
One of the reports reveals that there were refusals on good profiles, but now it's different. Several Indian students aspire to study in Canadian universities and colleges. There was a continued high admission rate of international students amidst the COVID-19 pandemic. Thus, the Canadian government limited the number of colleges for scrutiny purposes.
There was only 40% of student visa approval. While in contrast, now there is an increase of 50-60% marginal improvement.
The visa rejection could be on various grounds. Primary factors are a lack of financial stability and poor academic scores. Other reasons for refusal are language skills, amiss documents, and others.
Canada student visa applications must have the following documents. Applicants need to submit scanned documents and upload them. Later carry the original documents during the visa interview.
The Government of Canada has recently announced an amendment to work for international students. Now students can work over 20 hours per week off-campus while studying. The temporary relief is effective from November 15, 2002, to December 31, 2023.
The new work policy is to cover the 10 lakh job vacancies in the industrial sector. It will help reduce the labor shortage in Canada.
Canada welcomes 3,00,000 Canada PR applicants by March 2023, including minors. Immigration Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) released the official memo with this update in October. The target is to process a minimum of 2,85,000 PR applications to reach 3,00,000.
In the year 2021-22, Canada approved 2,17,000 citizenship visas. In the 2022-2023 fiscal year, IRCC approved 1,16,000 visas. It is likely to achieve the target of 3,00,000 soon.
