    Visa Help For Foreign Students

    Visa Help for Foreign Students - working out Visa Formalities with the authorities so that students can have their Visas granted in time.

    HKBK is always looking to draw foreign students into our various academic programs in Bangalore. Our credibility has risen exponentially in terms of corporate communication, orientation, and placement, this has helped our cause in attracting foreign students. While HKBK sees it as an endorsement, it also makes sure to involve itself in accelerating the process of Visa procurement.

    As it is well-known, there are certain pre-requisites to be met for procuring Student Visas for higher studies in India:


    • Students applying using scholarships should get a confirmation from the university/school in India they are going to take admitted.
    • Self-financing students need to produce letters of admission from their respective colleges or universities in India to get their Student visas.
    • Student Visas are generally issued 120 days after the commencement of the course. But it is always better to apply at the earliest to obtain their Visa in time.
    • HKBK has its very own student-relation centers on Campus and takes up the responsibility of working out Visa Formalities with the authorities so that students can have their Visas granted in time.


    The admission procedure, application form, fees etc are all different from those for the domestic students.

    Reception and orientation – New international students are welcome to register with the Admission office to receive important information about settling into their new environment. The orientation programs also includes trips and tours around campus and City.

    English Conversation Programme – If English isn’t your first language, this is your opportunity to improve your English language skills.
