Visa Information:


Student Visa :

The student visa is issued in Philippine embassies/consulates abroad. It is not issued in
the Philippines.

The student visa is initially valid for one year. It is renewable every succeeding semester.

Exchange Student Visa - 47(a) (2)
47(a)(2) visas are issued to officially designated exchange professors, researchers, and
students coming from foreign universities with an existing Memorandum of Agreement
(MOA) with the University of the Philippines

47(a)(2) visas are valid until the end of the exchange agreement or scholarship contract

The visa is generally processed and issued here in the Philippines. It can also be issued
through Philippine embassies or consulates abroad

It can be renewed if the scholarship or agreement is extended for a definite period of time

Exchange fellows and students are requested to immediately report to the OSA upon arrival
in Philippines.


Step 1:
When a school's requirements are met it sends a Notice of Acceptance (NOA) to
the student. A duplicate copy is submitted to the Department of Foreign Affairs (DFA),
together with the certified true copy of CHED-CEA when necessary. For quota courses such
as medicine and dentistry, a certificate of eligibility for admission (CEA) is also issued by
the Commission on Higher Education (CHED).

Step 2: The department of foreign affairs endorses documents to the Foreign Service Post
(FSP) located in the student's country of origin/place of legal residence for the issuance of
the student visa.

Step 3: The Philippine Embassy or consulate notifies you in writing to appear in person for
an interview and bring all the required documents.

Step 4: Upon receiving the letter from the Philippine Embassy/Consulate, you will have to
make an appointment to appear for an interview at the consulate or embassy.
