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.  For a graphic illustration that illustrates membership of the Schengen Agreement, please refer to this factsheet entitled 'New EU VISA rules'.  See also Questions and Answers information leaflet.    

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 or Romania), 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 provided opportunities for four million people to study, train and gain life experience abroad.

Under the international Credit Mobility component of Erasmus+, some 2,155 students and academic staff have directly benefitted from short-term academic mobility between EU and South African universities between 2015 and 2019. In addition, more than 80 South African students have received Erasmus Mundus Joint Masters’ degree scholarships. Erasmus+ also provides funding for Capacity Building in Higher Education, and South Africa has 29 such projects, collaborating with European Universities. In addition, the country has received funding for 6 Jean Monnet projects during the past years. There is an active policy dialogue in this area, with discussions between South African and EU institutions on topics including equity and quality in education, quality assurance mechanisms in post-school education and vocational education and training.

See the Erasmus+ web portal’s Resources section for information about linguistic support, documents for applicants and the management of proposals.
