Foreign students desiring to take admission in Goa University and colleges affiliated to this University are required to apply through the Ministry of Human Resources Development, Department of Education, Government of India, New Delhi or contact the Foreign Students Advisor, Goa University. A certain percentage of seats are specially reserved for Foreign Students at Goa University.

As per the student visa policy introduced by the Government of India w.e.f. 23 July 1992, regular visa will be given by the Government only to prospective college students who have firm letters of admission from Indian Universities/recognised Colleges/Educational Institutions. The recognised institutions would be those included in the list issued by the Association of Indian Universities, Department of Education and Ministry of Health (Medical Council of India).

Foreign students who do not have such firm letter would be given provisional students visa by the Government of India Missions abroad only on the basis of production of provisional admission certificate issued by such recognised Universities and/or affiliated Institutions. In both types of student visa the name of the University and the college where the students has secured admission should be mentioned in the visa of the foreign students. The practice of issuing ‘X’ Entry visa to prospective foreign students who do not have firm letters of admission has been discontinued.

No admission to foreign students is given if their passport shows any type of visa other than students/provisional students visa. Students having 'X' Entry visa have to go back to their countries even if they get admission in Indian Universities etc., at the expiry of the initial period of stay allowed in their original visa. Hence, under no circumstances, a change of purpose of visit to India be allowed. Nor any change of institution (other than that mentioned in the students visa/provisional students visa) will be allowed. A foreign student will be permitted to take admission at this University on the basis of a visa granted to study at this University (Ref. letter No. FSDI/RVR/1/92, dated 6th November, 1992, from Indian Council for Cultural Relations, Azad Bhavan, Indraprastha Estate, New Delhi 110 002).
