Visa, insurance, accommodation



  • students who participate in the study period within the Erasmus+ Programme and are citizens of EU/EEA countries involved in the programme are not obliged to apply for student visa
  • a new regulation has applied in Turkey since July 2014, under which foreign students do not need student visa to arrive in the country; they apply for a permit to stay for the period of study at the foreign police upon arrival (info: Turkish Embassy in Prague, tel.: 224311402/403)
  • in case the student is not a citizen of an EU/EEA country, he/she may be obliged to apply for visa also to other countries than just Turkey; accurate information can be obtained at embassies and consulates
