Students lead to successful and well settled immigrants that form the working population and skilled immigrants base for most countries. That is the primary reason for encouraging student visas and attracting students to countries like U.S.A., Canada, UK and Australia every year. Foreign students generate immediate revenue and provide the country with work force for the future.
Finding the right course of study at the right education institute can be a daunting procedure for both the student applicant and parents of the applicant who wish to ensure their child makes the right choice with the right guidance. Diva Immigration Service is here to assist families make that decision. Our overseas offices provide students with the information about courses they seek to pursue and facilitate liaison with the coordinators of institute they seek admissions into. We also provide students studying abroad with knowledge about their Immigration and work visa options, and ease the transition from being students to satisfied Immigrants in their country of choice.
On April 21, 2008, changes were made to work permits for International
students to make Canada even more attractive a place to study. With immediate
effect, and for the very first time international students, graduating
from selected post-secondary educational institutes, can now obtain an
open work permit as a part of the Post Graduate work permit. Students
will now be able to obtain a three year work permit vis-a-vis the previous
conditions for International students where the student could only get
a one year Post-graduate work permit [two years in certain provinces],
after the completion of their studies. Furthermore, there will be no requirement
for a job offer and no restrictions on the type of work performed by the
student under the provisions of the new rules.
This will be very beneficial for International students who want to take
advantage of the Canadian Experience Class being introduced in fall 2008,
to apply for Permanent Residency, since at least one year of work experience
is required from the applicant to apply under this category for permanent
residence status to Canada. This will contribute tremendously to filling
the labour shortages experienced by employers all over Canada, apart from
being a major contributor for students to select Canada as their destination
for studies. Moreover, the transition from study permits to work permits
and finally to Permanent resident status will be smoother and easier for
students and will also ensure that they will be able to economically establish
themselves in Canada.
