An official website of the European Union. See all European Institutions
Travelling in Europe is the European Union's official website for people travelling in the 28 countries of the European Union. Whether you are on holiday or business, you will find practical advice and helpful tips on a wealth of subjects, from what documents you need to getting healthcare and using your mobile phone.
There is so much for the traveller to discover and all this has been made much easier thanks to the European Union. Due to the Schengen Agreement, it is possible to cross many borders within the EU without being checked. What's more, the introduction of the Euro in 18 countries has eliminated the cost and inconvenience of having to exchange currencies.
For travellers to one of the Schengen countries, you will need to contact the Belgium Embassy in Kigali, which issues short term Schengen visa on behalf of all Schengen states.
If you are going to travel to a non-Schengen EU Member State, you need to contact the embassy of the particular country.
For more information on visas, visit Schengen Visa policy.
Erasmus+ is the European Union’s programme for education, training, youth and sport. Between 2014 and 2020, it will provide opportunities for four million people to study, train and gain life experience abroad.
Erasmus+ replaces a number of older programmes, including an international exchange programme called Erasmus Mundus.
See the Erasmus+ web portal’s Resources section for information about linguistic support, documents for applicants and the management of proposals.
