The procedures to obtain the Student VISA in Canada or France

To study in Canada, you must obtain a student visa, unless you are studying English or French for less than three months.

To obtain a student visa, you must, first of all, have a letter of acceptance from a Canadian or French college or university. To obtain this letter, you must first get information from the department or faculty that interests you in different universities. Request a registration file.

To choose from the different schools, visit the Campus Central directory on this page, and use the search engine.

When you have the acceptance letter from the school, you can complete the special form from the Canadian / French Embassy in your country or its consulate. Among other things, you must attach proof of sufficient financial resources to stay without working for the entire school year. You can, for example, attach a bank statement that certifies your savings.


Documents that are required and attached to the file with the embassy or consulate:

  • Student visa form
  • Photocopy of the first six pages of the passport
  • Two ID photos
  • The original or certified copy of the acceptance letter from the university or school
  • Proof of financial means
  • For the province of Quebec: a certificate of acceptance of Quebec (CAQ), the establishment attaches it to the letter of acceptance
  • Application fee
