Once the student obtains the offer letter from the university /institution, they proceed to make the tuition fee payments directly to them via wire transfer/credit card, etc. as per the requirements of the institution.  Upon payment of fees, the students then proceed on to lodge their visa application. For certain countries like New Zealand and Singapore, the students can pay their tuition fees once their visa has been approved.  The visa applications are available in the immigration websites of each country along the checklist of documents that have to be submitted. The document requirements may vary case by case and hence it is imperative that students seek the assistance of an experienced consultant who can advise them accordingly.

Nonrefundable Visa fees are also applicable while submitting the visa application, which varies from country to country and the information is available on the respective immigration websites of each country.  If the student wishes to resubmit his/her visa application, appropriate nonrefundable visa fees are still applicable irrespective of the outcome of the application.

Immigration officials in some countries also conduct interviews to ensure that the student has genuine intention of studying.

It is imperative to lodge correct and complete documents along with the visa application along with proper guidance to face interviews.  It would always be desirable to seek the services of an expert consultant for guidance on lodging and obtaining visa correctly and timely as visa rejections may sometimes lead to adverse consequences and may bar the student from proceeding abroad.  It is always advisable to seek the expert guidance from education consultants like Santa Monica to be guided through the process properly for the applications to be processed timely and accurately to avoid visa rejections or missing out on relevant documentation.
