 Αnnouncement for the applicants in need of a VISA


Non-EU nationals who intend to reside in Athens, Greece, during their studies may be required to obtain a visa before arrival. If you belong to this category, you should apply within the first application period as specified in the call for applications, which is at the latest by 31 July 2024.

If you are accepted, you will receive a CONDITIONAL ACCEPTANCE LETTER to proceed further. Upon payment of the first installment of the tuition fees, a UNCONDITIONAL LETTER OF ACCEPTANCE will be issued, allowing you to proceed with the visa application. If the visa is not obtained, the payment will be refunded.

You are advised to contact the nearest authorized Greek Embassy or Consulate in your country to obtain information regarding the required documents and the formal application procedure.
