My 4 months is almost here to qualify for an ARC through my language school. I have been extending my Visitor visa up to this point.
My question is:
What are the benefits for students to getting an ARC?
How long is it good for?
If I don’t continue at my school after I receive my ARC is it still good until its expiration?
My current VISA is single entry. This sucks because I want to travel a bit between semesters, but cant. Once I get an ARC, can I exit and re-enter without trouble?
I understand I can get a number from the FAP (Using only my Visitor Visa) that will allow me to open a bank account. Will this same number also allow me to be accepted for a credit card?
