Student visa update: How to avoid delay in processing time? VFS Global explains in 3 points
Students should apply early to avoid last minute rush
They are also advised to liaise with their respective universities to get their paperwork sorted in a timely manner
With international borders opening and foreign universities inviting students again, the pressure on visa processing increased manifold. For example, the British High Commission in India on Monday stated, “Student visas taking 3 weeks to process." This has left students frustrated as many of them said they are about to lose out on ‘opportunity’ and ‘assignments’ due to the delay.
Is there any solution to this issue?
Most international universities opened their enrolments for students from India with the easing of travel restrictions last year and this led to high demand for visas, visa facilitation agency VFS Global said.
Here's all that you need to know:
- Considering the high demand for student visas during the peak period of June to September we have proactively urged students to apply early to avoid last minute rush.
- Students are also advised to liaise with their respective universities to get their paperwork sorted in a timely manner to be able to apply for their visas on schedule
- Often embassies/consulates deploy extra measures to manage the volumes for student visas.
