  • Applying for student visa

    You do not need to apply for your student visa until you are accepted by your education provider and have received formal proof of offer or enrolment. You can apply once you receive either a letter of offer or a Confirmation of Enrolment (CoE). However, if you submit only a letter of offer your visa cannot be granted until the CoE has been issued. You will need a student visa for the whole time that you study. You can apply for your student visa in person at your local Embassy or online. Sometimes in some certain countries you have an option of going through a migration or a visa agent.
