Entry Clearance and Visa:

Is it tough to get Visas?

Student Visas are relatively easy to obtain. Most of the applicants from India who provide a confirmed offer from a University/College abroad and evidence of financial support for tuition fees and living costs are issued Visas.

From where can one get the Visa application form?

The Visa application form is available, free of charge, from the Consulate. Alternatively, you could collect the same at our offices.

What documents will one need to present to establish that he/she has permanent ties in India?

There are various documents that can prove that one has permanent ties in India – namely property papers, job offer letters, awareness of the job market in India etc. But what will really convince a Visa officer is one’s personal conviction. If student himself is not personally convinced that he/she need to come back to India, then it will be very difficult to prove it to somebody else as shrewd as a Visa officer that he/she will be coming back.

How much money do I really need to show at the time of Visa?

There is no upper limit to the amount of funds that one should show for his/her Visa Interview. However, one should show a little more than is necessary to cover his/her expenses abroad. There is no need to go to the obscene limits of putting crores and crores in bank accounts unless they already exist there.

If the family money is in Indian Rupees how can he/she show the money in pounds?

There is absolutely no reason for one to worry on this account. Any bank that deals in foreign currency can issue a certificate stating that they will be able to provide him/her with the necessary amount of foreign currency, for further education, after he/she get the Visa.

What questions will they ask me in the Visa interview?

Relax, there is absolutely no need to be nervous about the ‘Student Visa Interview’. The people at the counter are friendly and will not grill you or have you for lunch! However, you should be thoroughly prepared for the questions.

Do the medical check-ups need to be done in specified hospitals and laboratories?

After the Visa Interview, one will be given a sheet of paper in which the designated hospital will be mentioned for his/her medical checkups. After one has collected the medical test reports, he/she will have to meet a designated doctor for the health checkup.

What is the port of entry and how important is this stage?

The ‘port of entry’ is the Airport that one will disembark upon after his/her flight. Technically the Visa allows one’s entry only till this stage of his/her journey. At the port of entry, one will have to meet the Immigration Officials again and it is they who really give the permission to enter their Country. One will have to convince the officers at the port of entry that he/she is a genuine student and that he/she is in perfect medical shape. But that should not be too difficult provided that one has all the important documents, that he/she took for Visa Interview in Mumbai, ready for inspection in handbag and can take them out easily for scrutiny at the port of entry. It is important to remember that the Officers at the port of entry do reserve the right of Interviewing once again before allowing permission to enter.

If one’s Visa is refused from Consulate in one city/region, can he/she reapply for a Visa from another city/region?

If wishes were horses one could possibly do that. If one apply for Visa from Mumbai and is refused the first time, then his/her second personal interview will have to be in Mumbai.

There are some agents who are guaranteeing one the American student Visa. How true might be their claim?

The American/UK Student Visa Officials have placed themselves above the influence of political interference (both from India and America) so there is no person who can guarantee an American student Visa. A counsellor can assist or guide one in terms of putting his/her papers together but no person is in a position to guarantee a Visa.
