Once you have received letters of confirmation from universities of your choice, the next step is the visa interview process. There is a certain count of students that are given visas if there is high demand. Therefore, to assume that your study abroad is secured once you’ve received might not entirely be true. However, the notion that the visa interview can be draconian and extremely taxing doesn’t carry much merit too.


Your visa is chiefly centered around aspects like your financial ability to fund your education, your undergraduate scores, relevance to the current course you choose to pursue, and if you have any work experience, then your experiences that you carry from the job. But most importantly, it depends on you being honest. Therefore, if your documents were proven falsified or untrue in some way, your chances of securing a visa have highly dwindled. The same goes for any discrepancies in your name or other details in your official documents.


What to do if Your Visa is Rejected


The list can seem quite daunting, especially considering the amount of stress one would be under preparing for their travel. If your visa is rejected, there is no need to worry. If you attended a visa interview, you can always ask for the reason for your rejection. However, if you weren’t called for the interview, you would receive a document home stating your rejection and the reason for your rejection. If you wish to reapply, you can always rectify the reason for rejection and apply. Most students who couldn’t get their visa the first time around, usually end up getting it the second time.


However, if you still get rejected the second time too, there are several other options. If you were looking for a world-class education that can match up to your scores, then you have several universities in other countries that cater to your needs, and in several situations, for far lesser cost too. If you were looking for universities that only need language proficiency exams and none of the other qualifiers, then there are several countries like Canada, Australia, India that cater to your needs while ensuring you have a high-quality education. If you aren’t hell-bent on going abroad, then your native country would have several high-quality education offering universities too that you can explore


If you choose not to reapply, you can always work a year off before reapplying to your university and for the visa. Until then you can also work on strengthening your profile which would give you a more-than-fair chance of succeeding in the visa interview. Plus, most of the foreign universities appreciate work experience too. It adds to the charm that your resume would exude. Bottom line is, you have to remember not to lose faith or hope if your visa gets rejected. As mentioned above, sometimes the reasons for rejection just might not be because some aspect of you fell short of their criteria. They have to keep in mind their demand and the number of entrants they are permitted to allow too.
