Study Permit refusal is common when it comes to international students applying for one. Study Permit applications can be refused when individuals apply on their own without proper documentation and fail to convince the IRCC officer to approve their applications.
Students from visa-required countries need to ensure that a strong application is presented to convince them they are good candidates for a Student Visa. The Canadian Student Visa application process is quite complex and requires many steps to be completed. The application requires detailed personal and background information. In addition to this, all the required documents must be provided to strengthen the application.
It is very important to prepare a strong application because the decision will be made solely on the basis of information provided as they will not request any additional documents. Many people do not understand the process and there is a high rate of refusal. After receiving a refusal, the individual may be flagged. So, for any subsequent application to be approved, it must be stronger than that presented earlier, and SPS Canada Immigration can help you re-apply!
Top Reasons for refusal
Insufficient funds: Tuition in Canada starts at approximately $15000 CAD per year, for diploma and graduate programs in college. Though the program delivery instructions clearly state that the student is required to provide proof of sufficient funds for the first year of the program, but merely focusing on first-year may not be enough to convince the IRCC officer. Chances of rejection can be minimized by providing proof of funds for more than a year.
No travel summary: Not having traveled anywhere outside the home country may increase the chances of refusal. Our firm can help you overcome this hurdle.
Study plan: A logical study plan is required to convince the IRCC officer for approval. The choice of the program must be in progression of their previous study and must make sense for the applicant. In absence of it, chances of refusal are at a peak.
Strong family ties to Canada: As appealing as it may sound but surprisingly, having family members in Canada can be a reason for the refusal. Our firm can help you overcome this hurdle.
No job prospects in home country: The applicants need to prove that the program they intend to join will help them qualify for jobs in their home country. If not so, the IRCC officer can reject the application on basis of their no intent to return to their home country.
False presentation: It is very important to provide accurate information while submitting your application. Any misrepresentation of information will lead to refusal.
Criminal records: The applicant with no clean criminal records has a high chance of rejection.
Previous deportation history: Any previous history of overstaying in Canada illegally is a reason for the refusal.
Medical issues: Applicants with any contagious diseases that may be a threat to Canadians are refused a Study Permit straight away.
