Student Direct Stream for students from China, India, Vietnam and the Philippines

IRCC is implementing many progressive policies. Their goal is to promote Canada as an ideal location for higher studies among international students.

The new Student Direct Stream (SDS) makes it easier for international students to apply for Students Visa and Study Permits.

You can apply for SDS only if you are a legal resident of the following countries:

  • China
  • India
  • Vietnam
  • Philippines

Please note that even if you are a citizen of one of the above countries but live in another country, you will have to apply through the regular study permit process.

The new Student Direct Stream offers faster processing time for students with standard language skills.

SDS is soon expected to be expanded to countries in Africa, including Kenya and Senegal.

To qualify for SDS, student applicants must meet the additional requirements, which includes language skills.

SDS is like Express Entry. It will allow students to apply for Canadian PR and citizenship after completion of their education.
