Hello guys,

I am a Jan'21 prospective student. Want to know when is the correct time to apply for a study visa?
Some people are advising to hold the application as of now.

Also, Can I trust the Non SDS method? Would I get the visa by december? If it takes time, hopefully I can initiate another SDS application in parallel.

The problem with SDS is that I am having issues collecting 50K tuition all at once. Please do advice.

Thanks.

You should choose either SDS or non-SDS. Both can be "trusted" but the chances of receiving an approval by December are not the best at the moment. You should apply as soon as you can.

Hey! I've been told the same, that I should wait, and now I don't know what to do... Are you planning to apply soon, then?

I am thinking of applying after 10th October. Just waiting for any further updates from IRCC. Are you planning for SDS or Non SDS?

I think I'll apply in the upcoming week. I won't do it through the sds. Let's keep updating each other, hopefully permits will be getting approved soon

I would be applying ASAP because there are huge backlogs. If applying from India there are extra hurdles. VFS are closed so biometrics and passport stamping are not available.

Update: Applied on 20 of October and received the refusal today. Any immigration lawyer that you can recommend since I want to re apply? Reasons are: purpose of visit and immigration status. thanks!
