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.

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.
Student visas can be obtained from any of the Indian embassies in your home country.
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.
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.
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.
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.

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.
