A student visa is a legal immigration document issued to students by another country that allows them to study for a certain period of time. Student visas are commonly used by students at colleges, universities, and specialty institutions. Prospective students are generally required to apply for and obtain a student visa before they start school in the host country. These visas are considered non-immigrant visas, which means holders must abide by certain rules to retain their status and stay in the country.
- A student visa is a legal document that allows individuals to pursue their education in another country.
- These visas are commonly used by post-secondary students or those who intend to pursue specialty studies.
- Student visas aren't automatically granted, which means prospective students must apply for one with the appropriate department of the country where they intend to study.
- Students must be accepted, enrolled, and able to support themselves financially while in school in order to get a student visa.
- Being approved for a visa doesn't necessarily grant the same rights as citizens in the host country.
