I know the student visa process looks very overwhelming for a student. Don’t worry. I’ll make it as easy as possible for you. Once you have all the documents in place, visit the embassy website to apply for a study abroad visa and fill out the application form carefully. Consider your options and answer the questions meticulously. The application and its answers play a pivotal role in the acceptance/rejection/delay of your educational visa.

Now, before you submit the application form and the required documents, you will need to pay a Visa Application Fee to book the appointment at the consulate.

Having submitted the application and booked the appointment, you will need to visit the consulate/embassy and appear for an interview with the Visa Officer. 

The visa interview questions and their corresponding answers are critically important and they decide the fate of your visa results. The questions are fairly straightforward and are intended to test your capability of living and studying abroad. The visa questions you face will primarily interrogate your finances, the reason for choosing a particular course, your educational and professional background, your plans after the degree in the intended country, possibly your family background and your future goals.

The result of your visa interview can either be Accepted/Approved. The Visa Officer will keep your passport with him/her and you can collect the stamped passport next day from the OFC Office or they can give you a visa rejection by issuing the Form 214b which is a general letter describing that you are a potential immigrant. 

In such an unfortunate event, don’t lose hope and don’t argue with the office. Accept the decision gracefully and move out of the consulate. Your actions post this might influence their decision during the next attempt of the interview.

There are a lot of things that contribute towards a successful visa. So to get your visa approved without any hassle,, you need to make sure that you have all the documents as well as there is no discrepancy whatsoever. 

The general documents required for a Student Visa are:

Your Passport

2. Appropriate VISA application form

3. Proof of paid visa fees

4. Proof of clean criminal record

5. Proof of being in good health through a med exam

6. Photographs in accordance with the photo requirements for VISA

7. Proof of financial means

8. Proof you will return to your home country once the visa expires

9. Identity and Civil Status Documents

10. A cover letter that explains the purpose of your travel to the country

11. Letter of invitation to the country
