Step 5: Apply for a Visa

Depending on your country of citizenship, you may need to apply for a Temporary Resident Visa or Electronic Travel Authorization (eTA) to enter Canada, in addition to your study permit. If so, you will need a visa regardless of how long you plan to stay in Canada. We recommend you apply for a multiple entry visa, not a single entry visa. You should apply for your visa at the same time as for your study permit (for no additional fees). 

Check if you need an eTA or a visa to enter Canada

Check current processing times at visa offices outside of Canada

Do not leave for Canada without your visa
You must not leave for Canada until you have a letter of introduction (if you were admitted to a program and applied for a study permit) and either an Electronic Travel Authorization (eTA), or a Temporary Resident Visa (TRV) if you are from a designated country for which Canada requires a visa. The visa will be in your passport and the expiry date on the visa indicates the date by which you must enter Canada. You must enter Canada before your visa expires.

Visiting the United States
Because Vancouver is only 45 minutes from the US border, you may want to visit the United States while you’re at Regent College. Depending on  your citizenship, you may need a visa to enter the United States.
