Validity and Expiry of Study Permits
222. A study permit becomes invalid when it expires or when a removal order made against the permit holder becomes enforceable.
Marginal note:Types of removal order

(2) A foreign national who is issued a departure order must meet the requirements set out in paragraphs 240(1)(a) to (c) within 30 days after the order becomes enforceable, failing which the departure order becomes a deportation order.

(3) If the foreign national is detained within the 30-day period or the removal order against them is stayed, the 30-day period is suspended until the foreign national's release or the removal order becomes enforceable.
