Analyzing Visa services

Student Visas are often classified based on two broad distinction points
Student Visa Classification Based on Type of Programme/ Student
Irrespective of the duration of the course, some countries classify student visas basis the type of student. This could be the level of degree applied for (undergraduate, graduate or doctoral), exchange student or student applying for a vocational/ diploma course. Broadly speaking, as these visas also depend on the type, of course, the student is applying for, these are somewhat linked to tenure. However, in these categories, the first point of distinction is not how long the programme would be for. If you are, say, for instance, an exchange student, you could be going for 3 months or 3 years, the category would still be based on the type of student and not the tenure.

When do I start applying for student visa?

Once students receive their Letter of Acceptance from their desired university, it should be treated as a green signal to start their application procedure for their Student Visa. Applicants should check what is the process of submitting a student visa based on the country and the waiting times for an application. Based on these details applicants should plan their admission applications and upon confirmation begin with the visa process. The applicants must pay the fee wherever required in time and through proper channel also.
