India is known for its educational excellence, and it is a popular destination for many international students. International students should obtain a Student Visa valid for the full duration of the course from the Indian Consulates/Embassy situated in their own country.
A student would bear the responsibility to ensure that visa should be applied well in advance at the Indian embassy in his/her country. It takes atleast three weeks for the Indian Embassy to issue a student visa.
BITS Pilani admission letter should be used to obtain student visa. International students taking admission at BITS, Pilani should make sure that the student visa is endorsed to BITS, Pilani by the visa issuing authority.
After entering India, within 14 days, international Students (other than PIO/OCI Card holders) are required to register themselves with the Foreigners Regional Registration Officer (FRRO)/Foreigners Registration Officer (FRO). Office of International Students (OIS), BITS Pilani, will facilitate the Registration.
