What is the success rate of my application for a Canadian study permit? This may be a question I’ve been asked frequently recently. First release the data, Chinese applicants, from January 2021 to May 2021, a total of 2342 people applied for a study permit, of which 1495 lucky ones got a study permit, while the remaining 847 unfortunately refused to apply for a visa. The rate is 60%. About every three people, one is rejected. You can look at the approval rate of several other major immigration countries, India – 41,422 people applied, half of them were rejected. In Colombia, 1,847 people applied, 635 were rejected, and the approval rate was about 60%. In the Philippines, 1,735 people applied, and 743 people were rejected, about half of which were rejected. Of course, there are also countries with a very high visa approval rate, such as Japan, where only 34 of the 1,234 applicants were rejected.
So, when it comes to individuals, what can we do in the face of Canada’s increasingly strict student visa approval rate?
1. Study abroad while you are young. It is no exaggeration to say that adding one year to age is a minus item. In fact, let’s look at the data in 2019 that are less affected by special policies: the approval rate of applicants over 30 years old is only about 40%, which is less than half of that of 20-year-old applicants. Moreover, after the age of 30, every year the age increases is very unfavorable for the application for studying abroad and subsequent immigration.
2. Reading backwards at an older age is a high risk. Although studying backward at an older age does not necessarily mean refusal of a visa, it is more difficult to prove the rationality of studying abroad at an older age. The writing difficulty of the personal statement and study abroad plan submitted to the immigration officer will increase significantly, and the preparation of materials also needs to be more rigorous, so that loopholes cannot be caught. If you understand the visa trend within the immigration bureau, you will know which “dangers” to avoid point”. I have made two videos on how to save myself after my student visa is rejected, and it is on my homepage. In general, visa application is like writing with a brush and ink. Each stroke will become an unmodifiable imprint. It cannot be said that when making a new application, the previous application materials should be negated. Every refusal must be based on the previous application. On the basis of materials, look for space to apply again.
