How do I obtain a degree equivalency certificate?

The Association of Indian Universities (AIU) is the central office from which all international students need to obtain an equivalency degree certificate from the government of India. Students are required to a) fill out an application form, b) get all English translated education certificates, passport copies, visa copies, national id proof, etc. signed and attested by an officer (gazetted officer) at the closest Indian embassy in your home country, and c) pay the required fees of Rs. 12,000 (Rupees Twelve Thousand Only). One option is to take out a demand draft from your bank written to ‘Association of Indian Universities, New Delhi’ or By ECS/RTGS. Instructions are provided on page 3 of the application form.

What type of visa should I have to study at Amrita?

We require all students to acquire a student visa to officially become a full-time degree student at Amrita. We cannot accept students who come on a tourist visa.

Where can I get the student visa?
Student visas can be obtained from any of the Indian embassies in your home country.
How much is the student visa fee?
The student visa fee depends on the nationality of the passport holder and type/duration of the visa for which you have applied. Please check with the Indian embassy in your home country for the exact visa fee.
What should I do when I arrive in India?
Once you have rested and gotten in touch with the Amrita Center for International Programs, it is imperative that you register with the local Foreigners Regional Registration Officer (FRRO) within 14 days of arrival if you have come to India on a Student or a Research Visa and plan to stay more than 2 months (60 days). Registration facilities are not provided at the airport but in the office of FRROs or District Superintendents of Police. A member of the Amrita Center for International Programs can accompany students to the local FRRO but all transportation charges must be paid by students.
What should I do for an extension of my student visa?
In case you want to get your student visa extended, you should come to the Amrita Center for International Programs where we will coordinate with local Foreigners Regional Registration Officer (FRROs)/ District Superintendents of Police (FROs) with authentic certificates, proof of adequate financial standing, etc. The visa can be extended for a period of one year at a time up to the duration of the course or 5 years (whichever is less for students pursuing full time without any penalties standing against the student). This is a complete online process and students have to fill the online FRRO extension form and then visit the FRRO office to show the certificates and collect the FRRO.
What are the formalities if I just want to visit my home country during my vacation or other such cases?
You must have a valid Indian visa to visit your home country. Once you have a valid visa then you can apply for the return exit permit online and collect it from the FRRO office. It is very important that you carry the exit permit as this is required to be produced at airport immigration.
I have made the provisional fee payment. When should I pay my balance fee? Should I pay it in installments?
In case you have not yet submitted your complete Tuition and Accommodation fee, kindly submit it before reporting at the University and send us the payment transfer proof. You should also carry the payment transfer proofs along with you. You will not be allowed to start your classes until the complete semester tuition fee and annual fee for accommodation is paid.
