The estimated cost of a Canada study visa as an Indian student

  • Once you achieve the required score on the English language proficiency test, the next step is to apply to the university with the documents. Here, you will have to pay an application fee that is around CAD$ 100 and is non-refundable. Upon fulfilling the eligibility criteria of the college or university, you will get the offer letter. This letter will be accepted by the educational institution and the process for a Canada study visa will officially begin after that.
