Visa & Immigration

Non-EU students are requested to apply for an international passport before arriving in France.

EU students are required to hold a valid identity card to travel within the Shengen Space countries.

You should keep in mind that specific goods may be banned or restricted when travelling through the European Union. When arriving at the airport overseas you must go through Customs.

You should travel with your Vaccination Book (updated with tetanus vaccine). If the country of origin has recently been hit by an epidemic, specific vaccinations may be required before entering the European Union and France.

Since Visa application may be a time-consuming process, we encourage students to start their application as soon as they receive the Letter of Acceptance to the Program.

Non-EU students who are planning to study in France must schedule an appointment with the nearest Consulate of the country they will study in, to get information about what they need to do to obtain a Schengen Visa type D for study purpose, when they are intending to stay more than 3 months. Prices are around 60€-100€.

Within 3 months upon arrival, Non-European citizens will receive an invitation letter from the OFII (Office Français de l’Immigration et de l’Intégration) to go through mandatory procedures such as visa validation and if applicable, medical visit.
