Please apply for your study permit as soon as you receive your Letter of Acceptance from RCCIT. A study permit and Temporary Resident Visa (if required) can take several weeks or even months to be issued. Please be diligent about the required paperwork and verify the visa application processing at Citizenship and Immigration Canada (CIC).
If you are not a Canadian citizen or Permanent Resident of Canada, to study in Canada you must obtain a study permit from Citizenship and Immigration Canada (CIC). Depending on your country of citizenship, you may also require a Temporary Resident Visa (TRV, or ‘entry visa’).
What do you need to apply for your study permit?
If your application is accepted, you will receive a letter of approval/introduction. This letter is not your study permit. When you arrive in Canada, you must show this letter to a Canadian officer at the port of entry.
If you are from a country where Canada requires a Temporary Residence Visa (TRV), it will be placed inside your passport. You must enter Canada before your TRV expires (please check the dates issued on this document).
