  • The prospective student must contact the school chosen, ensuring it is approved for Visa issuance, and comply with their requirements.
  • The school, after their approval, will forward that application to the Commission on Higher Education (CHED) for their approval.
  • The CHED, will, if approved, send the application to the Bureau of Immigration.
  • The Bureau of Immigration, after their approval, will then forward the approval to the Department of Foreign Affairs (DFA).
  • The DFA will inform your local Philippine Embassy to issue the student visa, and the local Philippine Embassy will notify you accordingly.
