Enrolment for non-Schengen citizens requiring a visa for Austria

To obtain a visa, an “electronic letter of intent” (EVE document) is necessary. After receiving notification of acceptance from the teacher, the Summer Academy has to apply to the Immigration Authority in Salzburg for an electronic code number, which will be forwarded to the student. With this identification number and other relevant documents, the student can apply to the appropriate Austrian Embassy for a visa.

For the EVE document, we require the following details from the student:
copy of your passport, address, name and address of the appropriate Austrian Embassy (passport and visa department).

Enrolment assumes acceptance of the General terms and conditions.
