The Canada Express Study Program (CES) is launched in Viet Nam from 1 Mar 2016! This is an innovative administrative framework designed to streamline the visa application process for international students studying in Canada from Vietnam. The framework is based on the close cooperation between CICan and Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) which provides feedback to ensure student compliance with the terms of their study permit.
CES aims to reduce the stress of students who are preparing to leave home and study in Canada by improving the Study Permit application checklist, which helps students ensure they have all the necessary documentation to apply to study in Canada. This CES has been effectively applied in India and China, now will streamline visa process by dispensing genuine vietnamese students from showing finance evidence.
