Travel to the EU

Visa Information System Leaflet and Visa Information System Factsheet

Procedures differ, depending on whether or not you intend to travel to a country that is a party to the Schengen Agreement, or to a non-Schengen EU Member State. 

A large number of EU Member States are party to the Schengen Agreement that provides for a uniform approach to visa issues. Please, note that selected European states, not belonging to the EU, are also party to the Schengen Agreement.  At the same time, there are EU Member States that maintain separate national visa arrangements, outside the Schengen Agreement.  The following graph illustrates membership of the Schengen Agreement.

For travellers to one of the Schengen countries, please, read carefully the following information sheet on General Schengen Visa Requirements, which will also give you guidance as to which country's Embassy you need to apply to.

If you are going to travel to a non-Schengen EU Member State (Bulgaria, Cyprus, Ireland, Romania or the UK), you need to contact the embassy of the particular country.

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.
