Here is a step by step walkthrough of the application process and documentation
Step 1: Application Form
Visa application can be done both on paper and online. Our team will help you fill the forms and file your visa.
Step 2: Academic Documents
As mentioned, the documents needed for visas differ from one country to the other and your course/qualification. We will give you a country-based checklist for you to start collecting the paperwork for your visa.
Step 3: Evidence of Financial Capacity
This depends on the country of your University. Some countries may ask for proof of financial capacity needed for completion of your course over the stipulated time or a scholarship offer in place. Some other countries may ask for proof of financial capacity to cover all the expenses of studying and living in the country annually. Some countries offer multiple options for evidence of financial capacity with the student choosing the option that works best for them.
Step 4: Misc Documents
A lot of miscellaneous documents such as Passport Photo, relationship proof, Notary Certificate for name, Offer, Accommodation proof, Letter of Intent (Some countries require you to give a letter of intent for choosing that country as your study destination. We will share points that you need to mention in this letter) etc. can be asked for and thus needs to be readily prepared beforehand.
Step 5: Medicals
Some countries might require you to do medical tests before you file your visa. This often includes a review of your medical history, physical examination, chest X-ray, and blood tests. We will share with you a list of hospitals / medical institutions that are accepted by the high commissions.
Step 6: Health Insurance
Most countries now make it mandatory for you to have student health insurance before you file your visa. The amounts vary from country to country.
Step 7: Visa Appointment
