In case of Australia, Canada and UK, you will need to pay tuition fees in advance where as in New Zealand the tuition fees need to be paid after you will get Approval in Principal (AIP) and in the USA, the tuition fee needs to be paid after you get the visa. However, in case of Australia, Canada and the UK, if your visa is denied, then you will get your tuition fees refunded.
A visa is a stamp or an entry permit or other notation placed in your passport that will allow you to enter and temporarily reside in your host country during your program. A visa is required for all the duration of your study period. Visas are obtained through the Consular Offices of a country’s Embassy or a respective Home Office. While the most of the Embassies are located in Kathmandu itself, there are some countries, for example, UK, Australia and many European Countries, whose visa needs to be processed from respective country’s authorized VFS centers in Kathmandu.
Before applying for visa, you must complete visa application form, enclose supporting documents—including passport, academic documents, statement of purpose, medical report, COE or CAS, medical insurance or OSHC, financial documents and other case specific documents, and the payment slip of your visa fees. The visa fees are applicable for every country but the amount differs from one country to another. So, please check the official website of the respective country to find out the exact visa amount.
First, you get off at the airport where you will be interrogated by custom officials regarding your purpose of visit, your visa status and also your address in the destination country. Then after claiming your luggage, you head towards your college or any accommodation that you might have booked in advance.

Otherwise you will need to hire a cab or train or any other means of transport. You don’t need to worry about the support service in abroad as your respective university/college, alumni, student’s club, volunteer association, legal advisor, information center will all be there to support you once to reach your destination country.

In a new environment, it’s important to be more aware than you might be at home. And remember: you are a student ambassador for the destination country, so it will be important to act respectfully toward others and to give extra attention to being culturally aware. Students may be sent home for breaking rules or laws, or for persistent behavioral issues.
Unfortunately, these cases might occur as we have no control over visa grant of any country. This is solely issued by the consular officials or the case officers of the respective country. There is always a less chance of visa refusal; if you have good academic background, good test score, clear motive behind pursing your degree and meeting the Genuine Temporary Entrant (GTE) criteria of a country. However, if the visa has been rejected in spite of all the required criteria’s fulfilled by the students, we at Discovery Education will assist you with re-application of visa form. We will also help you to communicate with your university or college regarding deferral of your admission to the next session. Finally, we will assist you with all the changes that need to be made in the initial documents.
