D National Visa

If you're a student from United Arab Emirates, you'll need the D National Visa to study in Italy. This visa is made specifically for students like you who are ready to begin their study abroad adventure in Italy. Find out the best information about the process of getting the D National Visa to decide if studying abroad in Italy is right for you.

How much time will it take to get my visa?

Be sure to allow extra time for your visa application. Immediately after you've been accepted to and enrolled in the university of your choice, you can already start your application for the Italian D National Visa. You should apply at least 3 months before your university degree programme starts.

After you've applied, you can expect that you'll wait about 7 to 15 days for the decision.

Main steps to take for the Italian student visa

Here is what Emirati students have to do to get a student visa that will allow them to study in Italy:

You can schedule a visa appointment online with a visa application centre in the United Arab Emirates. Bring your application documents there and have your biometrics collected.

Emirati students maybe have to provide biometrics during the visa application process. Your biometrics are, basically, extra identification (e.g. fingerprinting and pictures) that countries use for security purposes.

You will have to attend a visa interview during the application process.

The D National Visa from Italy is valid for up to 3 months. So that you can stay during your entire degree programme, you may need to renew your visa every year. If you want to stay in Italy after your degree is over, you will have to apply for a different visa, or a visa renewal through the immigration office.

How much will I have to pay for the student visa?

To apply for the Italian D National Visa, you will also have to pay a fee of 50 EUR. Depending on your situation, Italian authorities will allow you to pay this fee online, on location at a visa application centre in United Arab Emirates, or through a bank transfer.

Emirati students won't need to get health insurance for the Italian visa.

You'll have to pay a service fee of 23 EUR. After arriving in Italy you will need to apply for a residence permit and pay an extra 30 EUR.

What documents will I need to get for my student visa?

When you apply for your visa, one of the most important things you need to prove is that you can support yourself during your study programme. For Italy, they require you to prove that you have available 900 EUR/month either from an external source, or already in your bank account.

Emirati students won't have to prove they speak English well enough to study in an international university in Italy. These language skills ensure that you can succeed in your classes and manage your way around Italy.

Emirati students won't need to take a medical test before arriving in Italy.

Emirati students won't need to set up a Restricted Bank Account. This type of bank account restricts the amount of money you can withdraw every month, and only allows you to access it when you arrive in Italy.

Look at the Italy immigration website for more detailed visa information.

Italy

Praising Italy might be the most complicated thing in the world: where do you even start? Italy is home to the oldest university in the world, University of Bologna; and, since its inception, the educational system never stopped growing and improving. With student discounts, thousands of Master's degrees, and a beautiful and diverse country, it's no wonder students pick Italy as their international destination for a graduate degree.

Famous Italians, like da Vinci, Borgia, Versace, and Vivaldi revolutionized the fields of Architecture, Music, Engineering, and Fashion. Now, you can follow in their footsteps with a Master's degree rooted in their tradition.
