italy student visa

Students who are planning to study in Italy; it is generally difficult for them to obtain detailed information about the student visa. Recently, they gave me a scholarship and I have gone through my visa process, so I wanted to share this information with other students for their benefits.

Today, the Italian Embassy in Pakistan has long been in the process of visa (from one to four months). Though, students can save time if they give all necessary documents together the documents to obtain a visa and DSV, ahead of time.

These are the customary documents that asked for student visa of Italy.

These are as follows:

  1. Application Form
  2. One Passport size Photograph
  3. One full blank page of Valid Passport
  4. Announcement of necessary funds for legal stay in Italy

More detail on where and how to apply for the student visa in the world.
List of Detailed documents for Student Visa:

  1. Medical Insurance for stay Period
  2. A letter from Italian educational institute addressed to the Italian Consulate General approving recognition of the VISA application, clarifying details of the Italian language course with the grammatical level and other basic programs.
  3. Allusion Letter from educational institute, in this matter Parola School, which confirms the applicant’s status
  4. Guarantee of payment in full for the program of the educational institute
  5. Evidence of housing and address of the student's accommodation

Note: the management of the requested documents does not confirm the student VISA for Italy, which relies upon on many other features such as rate of visits in the specific destination, type of educational program as well as type of course and type of payments and many other things.
