Canada has reported an express visa pilot scheme for forthcoming global students from Nigeria looking to study at the nation’s colleges and universities.
This new initiative is planned for improving processing time for study permit candidates in the African nation of Nigeria – with a turnaround of around 20 days.
In 2019, Nigeria made 12,000 examination license applications to the nation and saw 81% of potential students turned down, the third-most noteworthy rate on the African mainland.
A representative for Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada revealed to The PIE News that a specific budgetary check framework will be utilized to guarantee students have adequate assets to concentrate in Canada.
Forthcoming students with a letter of affirmation at a Canadian assigned learning establishment may utilize NSE to “apply utilizing a safe budgetary check framework, MyBank, to show that they have adequate assets for their examinations in Canada,” the representative said.
MyBank is accessible from head business banks in Nigeria, they included.
“Imminent students in Nigeria can apply online when they have the necessary documents. As the activity has recently been propelled, it is too soon to tell what number of students will pick this choice. We will keep on assessing the achievement of the pilot in the coming months.”
In spite of the fact that subtleties are as yet “being fleshed out”, it doesn’t give the idea that the activity will have an extra expense, as indicated by overseeing chief of SJRENNIE Consulting, Stuart Rennie.
“The spotlight is especially on attempting to quick track quality applications,” Rennie noted. Alongside the My Bank check and an idea from a Canadian Institution, a quicker turnaround will be founded on students having a forthright clinical testament, IELTS and a global visa.
Rennie has worked with Canadian establishments for various years, including Ottawa’s Carleton University chipping away at undergrad enlistment by means of driving worldwide schools and office organizes across Ghana and Nigeria.
“I see this initiative as a genuine distinct advantage for Canadian colleges who are hoping to expand their quality in Nigeria.
“It will be intriguing to check whether this is likewise turned out to different nations, for example, Ghana,” Rennie included.
The express visa scheme was acquainted with students and guardians at the EduCanada fairs in Abuja and Lagos in January 2020.
