Kathmandu: Students who have submitted applications for the No Objection Certificate (NOC) since December 8 are urged to re-apply, following an unexpected server outage at the Foreign Study Permit Branch.
The server disruption occurred at 10:30 on Thursday, leading to a four-day delay in the processing and issuance of NOCs. It has been confirmed that the server recovery process is currently underway.
While a commendable 75 percent of the data for students who applied before December 8 has been successfully recovered, ongoing efforts are dedicated to restoring data from December 8 onwards.
This unexpected setback has prompted the Foreign Study Permit Branch to take proactive measures to ensure the accuracy and completeness of the data. Students affected by this outage are encouraged to promptly re-submit their applications to expedite the NOC issuance process.
The Foreign Study Permit Branch recognizes the inconvenience caused by this technical glitch and assures students that every effort is being made to rectify the situation promptly. Further updates on the data recovery process and NOC issuance will be communicated as developments unfold.
Students are advised to stay informed through official channels and are thanked for their understanding and cooperation during this temporary disruption in services.
