VISA AND ENTRY REQUIREMENTS —last update 23/09/2020—

LATEST UPDATE HERE: Information on how to enter in Italy (23/09/2020)

The pandemic situation is constantly changing and it may be that new decisions will be taken in the next weeks and new countries are affected by the Government limitations, depending on how the situation evolves.

For this reason, we advise you to you to carefully check the situation before making your travel plans and to opt for refundable travel options so that in case the situation gets worse you can still change your travel plans.

We remind you that it is possible to postpone your Erasmus period to the second semester; lessons during the first semester will be available also online.

This page  will be regularly updated about the next government decisions, but we urge you to check regularly the Health Ministry Coronavirus dedicated webpage  for more information.

We encourage extra EU students needing a VISA to come to Italy to start the necessary procedures as soon as they receive their acceptance letter since the process to get it may be longer than usual.


Concerning teaching activities, during the first semester of the next academic year, teaching will be in a blended form: in compliance with all safety measures, the maximum number of lessons will be in-person and the remaining online, according to methods that will be determined by the various degree courses. However, it will be possible to attend all the lessons of the first semester online, including those which are offered face-to-face.


Students have to be aware of the very peculiar situation they will find on campus about physical distancing and safety measures and it will be compulsory to respect the local and national safety and distancing measures which will be put in place before or during their stay. They have to be aware that the epidemic situation may still change and that all this will inevitably affect their experience on campus (while accessing canteens, libraries and university services). Dedicated information material about our internal protocols on those issues, on specific emergency measures to follow and on the emergency plan for the management of symptomatic people on campus will promptly and regularly be shared with incoming students.


Please note that normally, accommodation is available on campus or in a private flat. We do expect the availability of rooms to be affected by the current situation and therefore we suggest you apply as soon as the accommodation form will be available.

We have prepared some specific guidelines concerning the insurance issues, detailing which steps are compulsory and which ones are highly recommended to your students.

A dedicated Psychological Counseling Service has been created to provide psychological support to students in this moment of emergency, with particular regard to anxiety, depression, stress and other reasons of discomfort. For more information, please contact
