Apply for a Visa

When your pre-enrolment application on Universitaly has been validated by the University of Tuscia International Students Desk, schedule an appointment at the competent Italian Embassy/Consulate for the VISA application.

Please note that the decision on issuing a VISA for study purposes is the exclusive jurisdiction of the competent Italian Embassy/Consulate and the confirmation of acceptance, that you will receive in reply to your online application is to be considered a supporting document to the visa assessment procedures but does not automatically guarantee VISA issuance.

These means are quantified as € 460.28 per month for each month of duration of the academic year, equal to € 5,983.64 per year.

The availability in Italy of such means of support must be proven through personal or parental economic guarantees, or provided by Italian Institutions or Authorities of proven liquidity, including Universities, local Government, foreign Institutions or Authorities deemedreliable by the Italian diplomatic Mission; they cannot be demonstrated through the exhibition of a bank guarantee, or of a guarantee insurance policy, and neither with cash or guarantees supplied by third parties.
