Italy Study Visa - MAX Education Links PVT. LTD.


Student visas in Italy are issued by Italian Embassies or Consulate-General offices in your country of origin.

Students from European Union (EU) or EFTA countries can enter Italy with a valid passport or EU ID card and can remain in Italy without a visa for the duration of their studies. Upon arrival, however, EU students must register at their local Questura station (police station) if their study program is longer than 3 months, in order to obtain a residence permit.

If you’re a non-EU student, you are required to obtain a student visa prior entering Italy. Use the information below to start the process of obtaining your Italian student visa!

Visas for Non-EU Students

While EU/EEA students can study in Italy without a visa, other international students aren't so lucky. Still, the visa application process becomes less complicated when you have all the necessary information.

Depending on how long you plan to stay in Italy and what you will study, you need to apply for one of the following visa types:

  • Short-stay visa (type C) – if you apply for a language or a short course that lasts less than 90 days
  • Long-stay visa (type D) – if you apply for any degree course that has at least 20 hours of courses per week (or 80 hours per month) and lasts more than 90 days

Conditions you have to meet to apply for a visa in Italy

  • You must have a valid passport with at least two blank visa pages
  • You must provide a copy of your flight itinerary
  • You must not have a criminal record
  • You must not have been denied entry in Italy previously
