Reasons for Study Visa rejection

Study visa Canada Current Scenario

When you have been planning for your Study visa for many years, you get good grades in colleges, convince your parents, and get all the necessary things sorted. Then one day you get a letter saying your Study visa application is rejected.

Again, starting the whole process from scratch what a waste of energy! Recently study visa consultant from SPS Canada shared that the student visa rejection rate has gone very high in the last two years, there has been many rejections. To be more specific, out of ten students only four were getting visa.


Why there are so many Study Visa Rejections for Canada?

According to a survey, the main reason for denying student visa for Canada is the number of gap years in their study, even the good profiles were rejected, due to this students had to wait for around 8 to 10 months to re-apply and which is very time consuming.

But recently the rejection ratio has come drastically down, now the Canadian government has become more lenient as they have seen the flow of students moving in the direction of UK, Australia etc

Irrespective of this trend, precaution is better than cure and thus it is crucial that you eliminate your chances of getting rejection in the very first go. There are some important things which you need to consider while applying for your study visa and they are mentioned bellow


Top reason for rejection of Student Visa Canada 2023

1.Financial Instability

Residing in the Canadian borders you are bound to convince the Canadian government that you are capable enough of handling your living expenses and that is the reason why you need to feature a strong financial stability.

The officers check whether you are capable of at least paying one year’s tuition fees when you are enrolling for your study visa Canada. Students who were granted visa recently have shown sufficient financial backup therefor it is important to include proof of financial funds with your application.

2.Intention to return to home country

The major reason shown in the document of rejection is the “Intention to return to home country” this is because students lack in proving to the officers that they will return to their home country upon finishing their Study visa permit. Therefore once your Length of stay with a study permit is over you need to either re-apply or look for other alternatives to legally stay in Canada.

3.Unexplained gap in your educational background

When you apply for a College or University in Canada it is important that your educational background is explained precisely in your SOP. That does not mean you have to hype anything and present it just means that you need to justify your gap years, wherein you show the learning experience you had and how you have evolved over time.

4.Choice of program

Another important reason why there is rejection in your study visa is because of the wrong choice of program and wrong institution, your choice of the program should be related to your academic background and what you are aspiring in future, if there is no clear interlink between them it is possible that the visa officer doesn’t approve your visa.
