Thanks for the info. Would you know of Canada requires an IELTS exam from their designatedncompany or I can take it wherever it is being offered?
Some schools require IELTS, PTE or other English examinations. Please check with your school.

For Student permit, ang alam ko if non-SDS hindi required ang IELTS. Pag SDS application, you need IELTS.

Hello po! do u guys have an idea on when should I expect my final decision? Lodged my application last year Feb 2020. Medical and Bio are done and already passed. I got my BVL last Jan 21 2021 but it was dated April 29 2020. Until now po kasi wala pa din update after i got my BVL.
May I ask what is a BVL po? Sorry, Newbie here.

I applied for my student permit July 2020 with complete requirements as an SDS applicant and Got my AIP Sept 4 2020. I started my studies online in Fall 2020 and I am now on my second term (Winter 2021). I was devastated when I received my final decision on Feb 18, 2021. I was refused. Refusal was on eligibility grounds which does not make sense because I already have AIP. Looking at the guidelines from IRCC, I initially submitted complete requirements (including Biometrics, Medical, NBI, GIC, LOA, receipt of full tuition payment) so I wasn't expecting to fall under 2-stage process (please correct me if I'm wrong). I have an agent and she's excellent! She's helping me a lot but I understand the decision is out of her hands. I did my own research and came across this forum and found unfamiliar terms like BVL and PPR. Does that have anything to do with my refusal?

Hi. Just want to ask if there is a need for written travel authorization for SOWP traveling with the spouse international student and 3 children? Our 3 children (all of secondary school age and approved for SP) automatically received their travel authorization 3 days after passport request. But No such automatic authorization was issued for SOWP. Anyone here who has secured travel authorization for SOWP? Thank you!

Then i got my BVL last Jan 21 2021 but it was dated April 29 2020 until now po kasi wala pa din update since i got my BVL :( super worried na po ako dahil more than 1 year na simula nai-lodged ko yung application ko. Btw applied thru an agency with online regular stream.

@sammysammy not quite sure if that's possible. Maybe others can help. Have you tried sending an email instead?
Don’t have any idea how to raise webforms or email them. Applied thru an agency po kasi so they keep telling me na magantay since natanggap ko naman na daw yung BVL ko. Pero po sobrang nagaalala na din po ako dahil over a month na since natanggap ko BVL ko up until now wala pa din po update.

Ask them to submit a webform. I'm pretty sure they know how to do it. Also, you can email them through MANILIMMIGRATION@international.gc.ca. Under what agency po kayo?
Nasuggest na din po ako na magraise ng webform and magemail po sa manilaimmigration ang sabi naman po nila sakin they are doing their best at nagffollow up naman daw po sila on limited allowed. Kaya lang po medyo worried lang talaga ako kasi po diba usually yung final decision kasunod po siya agad ng pag received ng BVL?

@sammysammy It depends. I got it within 24 hrs but there are others na it took more than 30 days or more for the final decision.
Sa tingin niyo po what could be my final decision? Is it approval? Medical passed and bio completed before lockdown. Medyo confusing pa po yung araw po nareceive ko yung BVL coz it was dated April 29 2020 but i got it last Jan 21 2021

@sammysammy d ko po alam it all depends sa vo. I really hope nag ffollow up talaga yung agency mo. Weird nga eh but I really don’t know. Hopefully good news. Try mo request GCMS notes. Though idk how it works. Others can assist you with that.

Hello, may nagaapply ba dito sa Assiniboine College in Manitoba? Parang masusungit mga International Department staff nila a. I already applied online but unfortunately not enough un subscore ko sa isang module for Duolingo, which is not specified naman sa website nila. I was just asking them if I can retake and use the same application since paid na ako sa application fee. Haay nakakafrustrate reply nun staff as if kasalanan ko. Always reply saken to wait for their email. :(
