Student visa application assistance by IDP

Need to apply for a visa? Here’s all you need to know 

A student visa is an endorsement by the immigration authorities on your passport. It indicates that you are allowed to enter and stay to study for a specified period.

When should I apply for my student visa?

You can begin your student visa application once you receive confirmation of your enrolment in your chosen university or institution. It’s best to apply as early as possible, regardless of when your program is due to start, as the time taken for your visa to process will vary from country to country. 

If you plan to seek any financial aid (in terms of scholarships and education loans), To avail any financial aid i.e., scholarship or education loan, the visa application should be initiated on a prior basis as the process can be time-consuming.
