University enrolment study visa


University enrolment study visa


Following the easing of restrictions on the EU+ external borders for students, the Italian Embassy announces the reactivation of the University enrolment study visa service.

In view of the current situations of COVID-19 emergency:

-   the university pre-enrolment must now be carried out directly by the student at;

-   after having successfully completed the online pre-enrolment (whose receipt must be submitted to the consular office with the rest of the documents requested for the visa application), an appointment has to be booked through Prenot@mi portal: Appointments will be available on Tuesdays and Thursdays.

The deadline for submitting university enrolment study visa applications is November 12nd 2021.

The visa application procedures are subject to the current and future emergency provisions of the Italian Government and of the European Union, concerning the prevention and containment of the COVID-19 virus. As a result, the physical presence of international students in Italy could be replaced, if necessary, in the early part of the academic year with distance learning activities.


The assessment of the foreign qualification for the study courses in Italy is an exclusive competence of the Universities. Therefore, the University will communicate to the student (through the Universitaly portal) whether or not it is necessary to produce a Declaration of Value, to be requested from the competent Diplomatic Representation for the State in which the foreign qualification was issued. The procedure for the issue of the declaration of value, as of this year, can be done entirely by correspondence, without the physical presence of the person concerned. If this requirement proves necessary, the Declaration of Value shall be considered as a necessary requirement for obtaining a student visa for university enrolment.

Students should be aware that the Italian Embassy in Budapest can issue a Declaration of Value (DoV) only if the university and school qualifications are issued by educational institutions legally recognized in Hungary. Alternatively to the DoV, students can ask for an equivalent declaration at The CIMEA procedure is not a responsibility of the Italian Embassy.


All students who wish to enroll in all of the Italian university academic courses (undergraduate, master's degree, PhD, foundation courses and language courses) have apply for admission to the University through the website
