Visa and Residence Permit

Visa and Residence Permit

Visas


We suggest that students coming from countries where an entry visa is required for the Italian authorities, to contact the Italian Embassy in their country for detailed information on what documents will be needed. This may include an insurance policy, an enrolment certificate from Centro Fiorenza, as well as documents proving the financial support throughout the study period in Italy.

The school will emit an Enrolment Certificate and send it to the student after he/she has completed enrolment and the school has received complete payment for the course.
