    What happens to the CAS number if the visa application is unsuccessful? 

    You cannot use the old CAS number if your visa application is rejected. You will have to apply for a new CAS number.

    • To get the new CAS number, you will need to contact the university’s international student support team or admissions committee informing them about your problem.

    • An advisor will get back to you and let you know if a new CAS number can be assigned to you or not. If a new CAS number is assigned to you, you must follow the steps above again to get the visa.

    • In cases where you need to request a CAS letter, the letter will be denied if you send a request after the deadline. Usually, the request must be sent at least 90 days before the beginning date of the course.

    How to avoid delay in getting the CAS letter?

    If your application has more chances of rejection for a visa, the university may reject your CAS application. To avoid the chances of the CAS letter being delayed, the applicants must take care of the following things:

    • Recent financial documents: Make sure the financial documents you submit are recent. Older financial statements may cause a delay in issuing the CAS letter.

    • Proper documents: Get proper documents and submit them carefully.

    • Submit on time: Do not wait for the last-minute submission. Get the application procedure done as soon as possible once the CAS window is open.

    Getting the CAS letter is a simple but lengthy process. The next crucial step is applying for a UK student visa after receiving the CAS number. According to the British High Commission in India, there is an 89% increase in UK student visas from India from 2021-2022. Any inaccuracy in the visa application process can lead to rejections. To increase your chances, get personalized visa application assistance from a team of experts.
