UK Visas for students to study, usually take 3 weeks to be received after submission. Sometimes in case of an urgent requirement, a fast-track option is available. Fast-track takes 5 working days with an additional charge.
When the student gets an offer to study from a UK university, he/she needs to accept the offer. The university then issues CAS i.e. the Confirmation of Acceptance. Once that is done, the applicant needs to register on the UK visa website and book an appointment for submitting the application along with other documents. After this, the visa fees are paid.
The final submission is done at VFS and is followed by a visa interview. On the day of the appointment, the applicant shall submit the Visa application form along with all other required documents. Typically this would include the completed application form, the ‘confirmation of acceptance’ (CAS), proof of funds, indicating that the student has enough funds to manage the living expenses in the UK, visa fee payment confirmation, educational qualification documents, and scoresheet of the qualifying exams. Along with the visa interview, the applicant’s photograph and fingerprints are taken.
