Valid Visa / Letter of Introduction from the employer / Duration of stay /Visas

Parents who come on an expat assignment and are being accompanied by their families would require the necessary visa for their ward. In case the student is not an Indian citizen and is not accompanied by his or her parents, he/she should enter the country with a 'valid student visa'. A student visa may be obtained through the Indian Embassy in the country in which the student is currently residing. On completion of the admission procedure, SIS issues a letter of confirmation with the effective date of admission at SIS. This document may be used as part of the visa application. It is the sole responsibility of the parent to maintain the current visa of the student, ensure that the student's passport validity is updated, and get their wards registered with the local authorities in Pune and the Foreigners' Registration Office (FRO).
