Changing Residence Permit from Student to Tourist

Rate this topic


Recommended Posts

I got my first residence permit in 2019 on tourism basis and then in 2020 I took admission in University to renew my residence permit. However, I did not enroll in any of the course and came back to my country. Now I applied for renewal  of residence permit with a student document but the immigration office told me I have to enroll in courses first. However, course registration is still two months away.

My question is that can I cancel my admission in the university and then apply residence permit application as first time for tourism purpose? Is it possible to now change my status from student to tourism based permit. If yes what documents do I need to apply.

I see no reason to cancel your admission. You should just be able to apply for a short-term residence permit for touristic purposes, then transfer to a student residence permit if you have to. While students from outside of the country typically have to get a student visa, then a student residence permit, you can transfer to a student residence permit after you get a short-term touristic residence permit. Check with your student affairs department, and call the immigration office helpline at 157 to be sure.

No you did not understand, i already have a student residence permit which is expiring next month and I am not enrolled in any class yet due to which the immigration office wants me to enroll in courses first to renew but I don't want to continue education.

I want to know, can i apply on touristic base for renew my residence permit? Should I cancel the admission from university to get on touristic base? Also do i need to apply as a transfer application, renew or first time?

You should be able to apply for a touristic short-term residence permit, then explain your situation to the immigration specialist when you have your interview. Then enroll in classes, then transfer to a student residence permit. There should be no need to cancel your admission.

This is a very specialized question you're asking. So you should contact the immigration office at 157 to learn for sure what you must do.
