Visa Documentation

Simplifying Documentation for You

Proper documentation is a crucial requirement for a successful visa application. Applicants from Nepal must prepare a comprehensive set of documents, including:


1. Confirmation of Acceptance for Studies (CAS): 

A Confirmation of Acceptance for Studies (CAS) is a unique number that confirms you have been accepted on a course of study in the UK. It is an electronic document generated using the Home Office’s system and is essential in order to make a successful Student visa application. You will need a CAS from your University/institution in order to apply for a Student Route visa.


2. Passport: 

A passport is an official document issued by a government, certifying the holder's identity and citizenship and entitling them to travel under its protection to and from foreign countries. You must ensure that your passport is valid for the duration of your intended stay.


3. Financial Evidence:  

A person applying for a Student VISA must have a certain amount of money available to them. To prove that they have enough maintenance funds to cover their living cost and remaining fees, one must provide either one of these proofs. 


a) Bank Statement:

It is a printed record of the balance in a bank account and the amounts that have been paid into it and withdrawn from it. To provide the bank statement as proof, the funds must be held in the account(mature) for at least 28 days before printing the statement, and the Balance certificate is required too. 

b) Education Loan:

The education loan is a collateral-based term loan specially designed to facilitate your higher education financial requirements. There is no provision on its maturity, but it must be disbursed before your travel to the UK.


Amount to prove- No matter whether the proof is a bank statement or education loan, the amount to prove remains the same. The amount is calculated in the following way-

     Funds to prove = Living cost + Remaining fees to pay


Living cost for Inside London = £12,006

Living cost for outside London = £9207


Note: The cost might change as per the time so please refer to Gov.UK  to know the current living expense.


4. Academic Qualifications: 

The Academic qualifications that you have achieved and submitted to obtain a CAS letter from the University should also be in hand while proceeding with your student VISA application.


5. English Language Proficiency: 

To be eligible for a Student Route visa, students must demonstrate that they have at least a B2 level of English language proficiency, according to the UK Visa and Immigration (UKVI). This can be your IELTS, PTE, TOEFL, University English Test, Oxford English Test, Duolingo, Year 12 English score, or any other English Proficiency that you had submitted to your University to demonstrate your English Proficiency Level. 


A Statement of Purpose(SOP) is a written document that outlines a student's academic and career goals, reasons for studying abroad, and their suitability for a particular course. You must be able to convince others that you are a genuine student, by including your career plans, recent qualifications, etc

6. Tuberculosis (TB) Test: 

TB test screening is mandatory for those coming to the UK for 6 months or more. Similarly, it is required for a Student VISA too. For UK visa applications, a TB test done from only either of these locations is valid;
