Appeal to IRCC, Give Us Our Study Permits - We have waited for More than 22 Weeks

0 have signed. Let’s get to 35,000!

International students from India who intend to make Canada their choice for their higher education have been subjected to grave injustice by Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada(IRCC). 

Students have spent months and perhaps even close to a year to prepare for all the requirements that have been imposed by IRCC for procuring study permits. 

They have deposited fees in thousands of dollars in addition to the Guaranteed Investment Certificate(GIC) of $10,000. Furthermore, they have spent valuable time and effort by taking the English language proficiency tests and medical tests and every other condition that has been put up by Canadian Authorities. 

Due to the pandemic, visa issuance has been halted by IRCC and students have been left in complete uncertainty about their futures. 

People who have applied in February are yet to receive their visa decisions. This kind of delay leads to several other problems that are not being considered by IRCC.

Our applications are 100% complete. We have already

1) Paid our Tuition Fees

2) Deposited GIC

3) Completed Medicals

4) Submitted Biometrics

5) Submitted the file to IRCC

Students who are waiting for a visa need certainty about their future. If the visa is refused after months of waiting, they might lose an entire academic year worth of precious time which can never be recovered. If they are given a visa decision either positive or negative in a timely fashion, they can plan their future and make alternative arrangements for their higher education.

Furthermore, even if the visa is approved, they need to make arrangements for their travel to Canada which would be very difficult if IRCC delays the visa issuance indefinitely as it has done in this case.  

We, the international students who intend to come to Canada request IRCC to immediately process the visas of students and give them a decision before the end of June 2020.
