For admission an international candidate needs to have submitted copies of education documents, passport and legalized translation of all these documents during the application and admission process.

Do You Need a Visa?

Travel without Visa — In order to study in Pakistan, you will need to legalize your stay in Pakistan. If you are a citizen of a country that can travel to Pakistan without visa, then travel without visa to Pakistan applies to you.

Travel with Visa — If you are a non-Pakistani citizen, you will need to obtain a visa at the Pakistani consulate or embassy in your home country before you travel to Pakistan. Once you have arrived in Pakistan, you will need to apply and obtain a residence permit before your visa expires in order to prolong your stay.

Education Requirements for Student Visa

Student visa to come study in Pakistan is a fairly simple process. You apply for the visa at the closest embassy or consulate to you.

Request of the students is received the MOI and Ministry of Education. Student visa is granted after obtaining NOC from Ministry of Education /Economics Affairs Division/Ministry of Health (as the case may be) and foreign Mission in Pakistan of the respective country and security clearance.

NOC is granted of the security cleared students for entry visa to the Mission abroad for three months with single entry.

Foreign Students studying in Pakistan on proper student visa are granted visa/visa extension for one year with one-entry. The same procedure is applied to foreign teachers of International Islamic University, Islamabad.

Visa Requirements & Documents

Document language:

All documents executed in a foreign language (except English) shall be accompanied their translation into English. Translation of all documents must be notarized.

In order to apply for a student visa to study in Pakistan you will need to submit several documents. These documents include:

1. A valid international passport — An International Passport or travel document valid for at least 6 months after the expiry of your visa. N:B: Your passport must have at least two unused page for entry/departure visa endorsements.
