Documentation needed for Incoming Students

 

Admission Procedures and Registration for Foreign Visitors

All foreign students, except for those from within the European Union, need a permit to stay in Portugal. If you are an Erasmus Mundus Student, from a country outside the EU, you should be very attentive, because in some cases the procedures to obtain a visa may be very longwinded and bureaucratic.

All students should contact the Borders and Immigration Services to inform them about the period of and duration of studies at IPT and complete all registration procedures. This registration applies to all students staying in Portugal for more than 3 months.
