Apply online for a study permit: IRCC Portal
How to apply online with the IRCC Portal
Follow these steps to apply online.
1. Create an account and sign in
If it’s your first time using the IRCC Portal, we’ll ask for your email and give you a code to sign up for an account.
2. Complete the online form and upload your documents
After you answer all the questions, you’ll get a list of documents you need to upload.
This includes the documents that show you’re eligible to travel to Canada right now and support your study permit application.
Upload proof of vaccination to ArriveCAN only, if applicable (you don’t need to upload it with your application).
3. Pay with a credit card
We accept credit cards and prepaid cards from Visa®, MasterCard®, American Express®, JCB® and UnionPay®.
This online service will be unavailable from 12:00 a.m. to 5:30 a.m. Tuesday, January 31, 2023 Eastern time, in order to perform system maintenance.
