Student Visa – Study Abroad

Student Visa

The Student Visa is a non-immigrant visa for foreign nationals wishing to go to a university, college or seminary in the Philippines.

To apply for a student visa you must do the following:

  1. Download and print the CGAF. (I have attached this forum to this thread in our forum or you can download from the official BI Website.)
  2. Submit the documents for pre-screening to the Central Receiving Unit (CRU) or to the frontline officer or staff of other Immigration Offices able to process this transaction.
  3. Pay the required fees.
  4. Submit copy of Official Receipt.
  5. Proceed to Image and Fingerprint Capturing Counter of the Alien Registration Division (ARD) and submit requirements for ACR I-Card application
  6. Check website if visa application is already approved.
  7. If approved, submit passport for visa implementation.
  8. If ACR I-Card is approved, claim ACR I-Card.

Cost: P9,720 + $50 (USD) for ACR I-Card

You can apply at the Main BoI Office or at the Dumaguete BoI District Office.

I have uploaded the BoI checklist for this visa at the Dumaguete Info Forums in this thread.
