In order to start an application, it is important for students to have an IRCC account, to receive notifications, submit and pay and check the status.
After creating an account, there will be a list of questions that will help to generate the application forms and documents, and at that point, it is important to continue reviewing the document checklist and see what else is needed before submitting the application.
All fees must be submitted along with the application and the cost of them will be:
Study permit (including extensions)
Biometrics (if applicable)
Afterwards, when everything is completed, submit the application, and check the IRCC account regularly to see if there are status updates. Moreover, if the study permit is approved, then the IRCC will mail the new study permit extension to your mailing address.
In conclusion, the study permit extension is a time-consuming process. Nonetheless, it is important to be careful before submitting every document and take into consideration the guidelines and instructions that the Government of Canada website provides.
