New Rules May Impact International Students Planning to Study in Canada in 2024

Students from across the world will have to deal with new rules in place for international students in Canada.

The new study permit rules will impact the number of new study permit approvals besides the documentation requirement while applying for the study permit. Canada put a cap on the number of new study permits. It also mandates a Provincial Attestation Letter (PAL) with the study permit application.

All international students planning to pursue graduate and undergraduate courses in Canada must include Provincial Attestation Letters (PALs)with applications. Lack of a Provincial Attestation Letter with the study permit application will cause rejection of their application. 

The rule of attaching a Provincial Attestation Letter does not apply to international students aspiring to pursue master’s or doctoral programs. They will also benefit from the choice to extend the visa for up to three years after completing their studies. It will help them settle in Canada besides getting valuable work experience to qualify for permanent residence

 The new rules will impact international planning to complete Canadian study programs in 2024. These will cause a drop of nearly 35 percent in the enrollment of new students this year.
