What is a student visa?

A student visa is an official document issued to people whose primary reason for entry to another country is the pursuit of education. It is a non-immigrant visa and a must have to study abroad. These are in most cases multiple entry visas and remain valid till the completion of the course enrolled in.

Am I eligible for a student visa?

The eligibility criteria for obtaining a student visa is different for different countries as each country has its own set of immigration laws. Yet there are some broad commonalities that are visible in the visa application process. These major requirements include:

  • The school authority should approve the application.
  • Applicants must have substantial proof of funds to pay for tuitions, living costs and all other basic expenses that can be incurred.
  • Applicants must have a spotless academic record.
  • Applicants must be of good moral character.
  • Applicants must meet the health requirements of the destination country.

What type of student visa do I need?

Most countries offer more than one type of student visa based on the circumstances. For example, Australia offers 7 types of student visas while the USA offers 3. However, all of these visas can be classified into two broad categories.

Student Visa Classification Based on Programme Duration

One factor which determines the type of visa issued is the tenure of the course being chosen by the student. Immigration departments often divide student visas into short-term student visas or long-term student visas based on the tenure. Short-term visas are often limited to a period of 90 days and are generally offered to students taking up 3 month diploma or certificate courses. Long-term visas on the other hand are offered to students taking degree courses or other such courses exceeding 3 months.

Student Visa Classification Based on Type of Programme

Sometimes, irrespective of the duration, student visas are classified on the basis of the type of course or programme enrolled in. This could include undergraduation, post graduation, doctoral programmes, student exchange programmes or diploma courses. In the general sense it could be said that the type of course being chosen by the student is in a way linked to the tenure, but in this kind of a classification the immigration offices do not take that into account.

What documents are required to apply for a student visa?

Every country has its own list of documents that applicants need to submit at the time of visa application. However, a generic list of documents would look something like this:

  • A valid passport and copies of previously issued passports.
  • Proof of admission from the school, college or university concerned.
  • Proof of having met financial requirements.
  • Proof of language proficiency

How do I apply for a student visa?

Once you have received your acceptance letter from the university concerned, you can go ahead and apply for a visa. Student visa application can be done via one of two methods:

  • Online application - The fastest way to apply for a student visa is through the online channels. Students can simply create an online profile in the respective country’s immigration website and fill in all the required forms.
  • Offline application - In the offline mode, students need to download the application form, fill in all required information and send it to the consulate of the destination country.
