The visa stamp placed in your passport by an Embassy or Consulate shows the period during which you may enter in that particular country. If the date on the visa stamp expires while you are in that country, it need not be renewed until after you leave the country and wish to return again, provided that you maintain your legal status throughout your entire stay in that particular country. This means that you must possess a valid visa document at all times. The visa document is only valid if you remain in full-time student status.
Visa Processing Details
A Visa is a document showing that a person is authorized to enter the territory for which it was issued, subject to permission of an immigration official at the time of actual entry. The authorization may be a document, but more commonly it is a stamp endorsed in the applicant’s passport. Some countries do not require a visa in some situations. The country issuing the visa typically attaches various conditions of stay, such as the territory covered by the visa, dates of validity, the period of stay, whether the visa is valid for more than one visit, etc.
A visa generally gives non-citizens clearance to enter a country and to remain there within specified constraints, such as a timeframe for entry, a limit on the time spent in the country, and a prohibition against employment. Visas are associated with the request for permission to enter (or exit) a country, and are thus, for some countries, distinct from actual formal permission for an alien to enter and remain in the country.
