Canada makes visa process simpler for Indians

OTTAWA July 2: Canada has introduced a faster and simpler visa processing mechanism for students from India and three other countries.
 
The number of Indian students opting for studies in Canada is on the rise and this new program which cuts down the processing time for study permits (which are student visas) to within 45 days as opposed to within 60 days will be helpful. 
 
Students from India, China, Vietnam and Philippines who demonstrate upfront that they have the requisite financial resources and language skills to succeed academically in Canada are eligible to opt for the newly introduced ‘Student Direct Stream’ (SDS) program.
