Since the ‘Unlock’ phase of the nationwide lockdown in India has been initiated, there have been significant relaxations in providing visas to foreign nationals of various categories. As of October 2020, all foreign nationals visiting India for all purposes except tourism will be granted visas. So, it is with great pleasure that Sharda University has opened its doors of education to foreign students who wish to enrol themselves in blended online as well as on-campus courses. However, given the circumstances, the university also has provisions for students who are interested in 100% online classes that will take its course through the distance learning model.

How to apply for an Indian visa as a student?

If you are a national of Bhutan, Nepal or the Maldives, then you are in luck since the Government of India does not require visas for the people from these countries visiting India. However, if you are not, then applying for a student visa to India from your regional High Commission or Embassy of India is rather a cakewalk. Firstly, you will need to provide the Indian Embassy of your region with the letter of admission from Sharda University to initiate the entire process. Moreover, in case you want to secure a provisional visa of 3 months, it is necessary that you provide your regional Indian Embassy with a letter from the university that you have applied to.


For the final application submission, all you need to do is provide the proof of financial support, your identification photos like passport size photographs, and the completed visa application form. And, upon submission of these, you will receive your Indian visa soon.
