  1. Hello Dear,

    I have a question about the student visa charge.

    I heart about one thing that is if apply for the student visa the third time, all applications have to pay an additional $700 each application. Is it true? because I could not find that information on the internet.
    please kindly answer it for me.

    Thanks
    Oogii
