Canada imposes new regulations for student visas

Published On: 19 Jul 2012

 | Last Updated On: 03 Aug 2012

International students interested in applying for a student visa to Study in Canada will have to face new regulations started by the Canadian Department of Citizenship and Immigration (CIC). These regulations are going to be initiated to stop foreign nationals coming into the country for any purpose other than education on the basis of student visas. The new regulations also aim to also clamp down fake educational institutions that attempt to attract foreign students.

Jason Kenney, Minister of Citizenship, Immigration and Multiculturalism has received the new legislation act that obligates international students to submit their fingerprints and photo as a part of visa application before they can enter Canada in a positive way.  The proposed legislation that will come into effect from2013 aims to improve Canada’s position in giving good quality education to interested international students. However, government officials believe, participation from International Student Programme (ISP) with CIC and its territorial and provincial counterparts is also necessary to achieve this goal.

The proposed legislation is not implied to all countries requiring visas As of now, students from India, Saudi Arabia and China will have to submit the biometric data as a part of the student visa application. The other countries that will have to give biometric data will be denoted once the approval process of the legislation is finalized.
