After contacting the immigration department, they mention that they have no control over the TA of university students as it is under EMGS. But EMGS says its in the hands of immigration. So I don’t know what step to take next.
Please be informed that we are unable to provide you with an exact time-frame for the completion of the travel authorization application process. Kindly note that there are multiple levels of processing involved to approve the travel request by students. The decision to issue the travel approval letter is solely at the discretion of the Immigration Department. Rest assured that, your institution will be notified of the progress of your application.
