Pathways to Canada Immigration

Student Direct Stream

The Student Direct Stream program accelerates the application of students who are applying to study in a Designated License Institution (DLI).

Normally, applications received via the Student Direct Stream takes no more than 20-25 calendar days. One thing to keep into account is that a study permit is not a visa and won’t allow you to immigrate to Canada, by itself. You might also require a visitor visa or an electronic travel authorization (eTA) to carry-on the application.

To be eligible for quicker processing via the Student Direct Stream, you should:
  • Be a legitimate resident of any Country.
  • Qualifying scores in each skill (reading, writing, speaking, and listening) in the International English Language Testing System (IELTS) and Test d’évaluation de français (TEF).
  • Acquired an acceptance letter from a Designated Learning Institution
  • Should have a medical certificate stating the well-being of your health
  • Should have a police certificate stating no past criminal records
  • Should have your current secondary or post-secondary school record(s)

Depending on your location, you might also be required to deliver other documents. All you have to do is, ensure you have the right set of documentation required by the visa office.
