Hello. My study permit just got approved. I received a letter requesting for my passport. My passport will expire on February 2021 and my student visa will be until June 2021. It is said in the letter that passport must be valid for the duration of my expected stay or with my study permit. It also stated in the the letter that they will not issue a visa beyond the expiry date of passport. Do I need to renew my passport? Will it not affect my application, since the passport number will be changed once I renew my passport

I had the same case..you should get ur passport renewed..otherwise you’ll be granted ur visa till ur passport’s expiry date and then you’ll have to extend ur visa afterwards. There won’t be any issue in your application since the old passport number and renewal date are mentioned in the new passport. So it will be understood that u have renewed ur passport.

You dont have to renew passport now if you dont want to, but your permit/visa will only be issued till february 2021 you can then apply for an extension in Canada before it expires and after you have a new passport.
